I understand that companies don't hire every candidate and they have a certain selection process-- what bothers me though are these nasty recruiters and hiring managers who just have to INSULT candidates interviewing. let me explain that this has happened to me and a friend of mine who interviewed with this company. now im a sales genius- top seller and performer in various venues....I know everything about the sales process and would be the ideal candidate for a position like what they had. now they don't have to hire me or anyone but what bothered me is that during the interview process I was actually INSULTED by the hiring manager who interviewed me...oh yes INSULTED and told im quiet oh and that he wasn't convinced I could sell- im laughing at this as I actually gave a TEN MINUTE dissertation on sales and the sales process and brilliantly described in detail everything which most people would never be able to do. they say they are looking for TRUE sales people yet completely treated me as if im a stupid unexperienced quiet person who has no idea what im talking about yet im a proven TOP performer for over ten years in sales? this was just HORRIBLE- they have NO RIGHT to insult candidates this way or even PUT DOWN their abilities..imo its VERY unprofessional- any dolt with a brain would say this is an exceptional person who understands sales beyond most others yet this manager actually insulted me my speaking ability and my PROVEN SALES ability which is disgusting shame on him! he basically just treated me as if im a stupid female with no brain...what a pathetic loser? to judge and put down someone who is actually EXCEPTIONAL is a stupid and ridiculous thing to do esp if you have a position of power over that person..shame on them..
the problem is-- when someone calls you QUIET what they are doing is really trying to socially dominate you and PUT you down in MANY WAYS--especially when you are far from quiet...they are trying to demean you, your self esteem, your speaking ability, your character and in essense are saying they are jealous of you and you will never have a chance around them- most people who are threatened by someone will say this to them...I have spoken with MANY quiet soft spoken people and no one ever insults them and they get hired for many positions yet those who are exceptional, outgoing, and who threaten the idiots in places especially like Orlando where losers cohabitate will wrongly get called something like this just to be insulted for no reason. now a hiring manager or recruiter saying this to someone is just a complete domination of that person- that person has no way of defending themselves except saying "well im not quiet." really they've already lost.. and in essence its almost as if they are now arguing with the person or having to fight and in the end they will lose...the hiring manager is putting this person in a corner really and theres not much they can do...what bothers me about this pathetic interview is that I was told this by the nasty hiring manager who already decided he wanted nothing to do with me despite my brilliant answers and the fact that I spoke so intelligently for many minutes at a time about the sales process giving in depth excellent answers...to call someone QUIET after they have spoken for so long is absurd, unfair, ridiculous and a way of social dominance and utterly pathetic...a candidate can say nothing because the imbecilic recruiter has already decided they have the power and place to insult and socially dominate this person no matter what the circumstance...so the candidate not only won't get hired despite the fact they SHOULD get hired but they will also be INSULTED and have their self esteem put down by this pathetic imbecile in a management position who feels they can treat the candidate this way because they are a recruiter in a position of power over that person....this was my experience with this company and just AWFUL. 
its like telling a surgeron who has performed thousands of surgeries theyre not sure that person can do that...its completely FALSE and makes no sense. what's worse is that the person I shadowed at the company knew NOTHING about sales and wasn't even a seller and was horrible- in fact everyone there seemed terrible. Sure the company isn't obligated to hire me or anyone if they choose not to but they have no right to literally insult candidates as if they have any idea...in fact im sure I could not only outsell the manager but am far better than him and maybe they are threatened by exceptional people but at this place they do not hire exceptional people but they insult them during interviews then reject them. I applied to work for these imbeciles- not only did I have all the qualifications but far exceeded them. I was told by the recruiter that someone wasn't hired by them because the person gave a silly answer to a basic question..its very strange that someone can give in depth brilliant answers and still be insulted AND rejected. im amazing at sales and its been proven. Top performer at many positions. In my interview- I gave a ten minute dissertation on the sales process, something I doubt ANYONE can do and proved I knew everything about sales.  of course because I am a female he had to put me down and say I am 'soft spoken' and he's not sure I can do the position lol! ive been doing TELEPHONE SALES for over 10 years and a proven sales success and he's telling me he isn't sure I can sell insurance over the phone? is he crazy? Also I'm a sales GENIUS being able to sit there and analyze everything about sales, my call, the person I shadowed their call - EVERYTHING and this imbecile is saying he's not sure I can SELL? the sales person I shadowed was horrible and not even a sales rep! He was awful and not even selling and completely stupid and this a**hole recruiter at farmers is trying to put ME down a sales freaking genius and also trying to say im "SOFT SPOKEN" after giving a dissertation on sales?? these managers these days are crazy- it seems they are threatened by exceptional people especially those who are women and its disturbing and disgusting.  I think this was gender discrimination as im a pretty female and he just HAD to put me down and mistreat me in this terrible way. I KNEW I wasn't hired the minute I left- and it's really weird how recruiters these days are brain dead imbeciles who like to put down the BEST employees or potential employees and they hire complete dolts, stupid people and people who I think are just robots. for a company like this they should have been BEGGING to get a sales rep as good as me and someone not only who is so knowledgable but someone who knows everything about It and has a TON of experience- but no instead the trashy POS sales manager had to INSULT me and put me down even put down my speaking ability which is GREAT and my sales ability and say hes not sure or convinced I can SELL something ive been doing for over TEN YEARS being the TOP REP at every single place ive worked??? someone needs to teach tehse idiots a lesson....they have creeps as hiring managers and really crappy trashy people who insult and put down really amazing people...screw them! 
also, once these nasty hiring managers do not hire you once...they will NEVER consider you again because they are in this case JEALOUS or threatened by your abilities and would never even think to hire you however they will hire total idiots who have no ability, no experience and who are horrible at the job!
my advice to people interviewing with this awful company is just act very stupid and sit there silent and act dumb because you will be praised rewarded for it and get hired- if you make a very STUPID mistake, they wont hire you but if you just act stupid and average they will like you and take you. however, if you are exceptional and great, they will insult berate you and then reject you immediately while laughing in your face...it's a trashy and bad company beware...again what bothers me is that my talents and abilities were falsely INSULTED by the nasty manager rather than be praised for my excellent history and great sales abilities...how dare they do this to people coming in to interview--they try to break random people down?  they have no place to do this....tehse people are far underqualified along with the people they hire and use their abilities to undermine demean and insult amazing candidates far above their crappy qualifications and far above their own selves...what a trashy place run by trashy crappy people...what bothers me about these terrible companies and crappy managers that do this is that, they promote STUPIDITY and bad workmanship...rather than praising and promoting individuals with TALENT INTELLECT and ABILITY they insult them during the interview process in turn trying to mess with their self esteem, their abilities...this is horrible really..is this what this society is coming down to--punishing those who are great and exceptional and rewarding idiots with no skills or abilities? this is what disgusts me about practices and companies like these that feel they can treat individuals this way...shame on them and hope they hire more dolts because that's what that terrible place deserves...

the seller would then be a millionaire.  Robert NAILED it, you're just too "smart" for anyone to hire.  Keep up the self aggrandizement.  You deserve yourself.

h i have to disagree with you completely- those who interview out there these days have no clue about anything, nor did i come across as 'all-knowing' i gave in depth excellent answers to questions that most people wouldn't be able to even come up with or understand- it shows extensive experience understanding and knowledge adn if i was a hiring manager i would beg to hire someone who has that kind of knowledge and understanding. Its so sad to know taht you as an interviewer would fail to hire those who are qualified experienced exceptional people yet hire dolts who dont know anything. My point is that most of you imebciles out there interviewing candidates have no clue HOW to hire WHO to hire, and mock those with experience and those who are great. Also my complaint is that the hiring manager ltierally questioned my sales ability and acted as if he didnt think I could sell when I have 20 years of selling experience, and he was undermining my talents and abilities..no they were NOT right nor are you RIGHT just because you held a position as interviewer--you think interviewers out there are knowledgable intelligent people - on the contrary most males out there i've seen are very sexist ignorant and stupid people - it's shocking how many BAD interviewers are out there and jerks who use their position to have a powertrip on others..so no you are not correct- if i was an interviewer i would be impressed with a great candidate and want to hire that person- on the contrary i interviewed for another sales position with a female who was very impressed with my answers and hired me - so your theory and analysis is very incorrect...

you're another arrogant person trying to assert your ignorance on others

They were right...

AUTHOR: Robert - ()

Honestly if your TEN Minute dissertation was anything like this report, I can see why you were you not only not hired but probably FELT like you were insulted.  By the way I said felt because I gave up trying to find in your report exactly how you were insulted.

By the way you may have 10 years SALES experience, I have much more than that in INTERVIEW experience.  I have interviewed hundreds of people and have learned several things.  One is that people that come off as "all knowing" and give 10 Minute disserations in the interview are trouble, yes I have seen many like you.  How are they trouble?  Well because if they get hired after about 30 minutes of their first day they are talking to the Senior Management about how everthing in their department/company is wrong and that if they want to survive they need to do things the correct(way).  Who cares if the company has been around for 20 years and is adding staff. 

Oh and before you go off on another long diatribe...No I do not work for them.
