    I worked at Southern Wine & Spirits of America full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Outside sales, you are always moving going account to account. You aren’t sitting at a desk everyday

    Cons

    Too much pressure, far too many quotas and daily fire drills

    Advice to Management

    Look at how your goals affect people’s income. Many goals are unattainable (by your own admission) and adversely affect your people’s income and overall satisfaction with the job.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Wine & Spirits of America (Union City, CA (US)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    Usually the interview process is with the recruiter and the future manager. Pretty straight forward questions- typical questions. Once they decide they want you for the position; they advise human resources and the process begins. The process all depends on how quick you can go and do the drug test, the physical test, etc. For this position you will drive your personally vehicle; thus one needs to go and change their insurance plan and provide proof to the company.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    not much negotiation.
