Sollicitatiegesprek voor de functie Sales Development Representative



I had 2 phone interviews which I was told I did very well. I have plenty of experience in phone sales. At my face to face, the manager had the nerve (stupidity) to ask me, "Where do you see yourself in 5 years, retired and tending your garden?" They didn't realize from my resume (as I only go back 7 years) how old I was when they spoke to me on the phone.

Haha- you don't even work there, that says it all.

I'm sorry man, I don't even work at Podium, but I work for a different company in the same building. I hate to say it, but I think you are incredibly off base with your assessment of Podium. Some of my best friends work there, and they are all well into their 30's. Every person I run into from Podium is a class act. I actually interviewed there and didn't get the job. Like you, I think it was 99% based on my attitude in life, and 1% due to the questions being asked in the interview. I blame myself for having not gotten the job. Based off your response and pessimistic view towards your interview, it's not entirely surprising you didn't get the job. It seems pretty clear to me that you most certainly wouldn't fit in with their "bro culture". If you're into falsely stereotyping companies, then maybe you're better off elsewhere. Good luck brother. P.s. I can't believe you actually think they were serious about the "tending your garden" question. I don't believe for a second that they were criticizing your age WHATSOEVER. They're not idiots. Try loosening up and laughing once in a while.

I was floored...this is not something they would have said to someone in their 20's. Everyone in that office is a guy in their twenties-early thirties. It was like a frat house when I walked in, with people throwing stuff at each other. No one was working. Obviously, that is their "culture" that they are trying to maintain. They are not looking for someone with skills who wants to come in and work. The people that interviewed me were pretentious and self-important.
