Sales Representative

Sales Reps believe in the solution you provide and are motivated by more than just meeting their quotas. Use these sample interview questions to find the best person for the job.

Your zero-regret new hire is proactive, curious, persistent and strategic. They’re customer focused, forward-thinking and super organized, with a great knowledge of the sales process. Plus, they’ll have an impressive track record of really getting to know the products and customers they’ve worked with. 

Top tips: 

  • Look for tactical salespeople: Your dream candidate will treat you like they treat their customers. They’ll aim to identify your pain points and figure out ways to fix them. 
  • Grow together: Hire candidates you can grow with by making sure their personal career goals align with your company's mission.
