Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone done this role? I have an interview for a postion and would like some idea as to the questions you might get asked (apart from product) :wink:
  2. Cow

    Cow LE

    Whats the role and who with?
  3. A lot depends on the company, the position and the market. Many companies call their salesmen sales engineers because they think the customers will be impressed.

    Some of the tasks may be

    Finding Customers
    Responding to customer enquiries
    Agreeing specifications/requirements with customers
    preparing the estimate and quotation
    making presentations
    submitting the quote
    Customer care

    The main measure of your performance will be getting orders and their value and profitability
  4. It is a nice title for a salesman, so questions are going to be relevant to the product and market sector
    1. Identifie possible clients in the area.
    2. What experience have you got dealing with products in your prevoius career.
    3. Presentation skills experience.
    4. Who would you be selling to.

    I found ex services technicians great for service engr roles as they turned up on time, stayed till the job was done and did it well
