    Interview process

    The interview is beneficial to competitive and confident individuals but for many the atmosphere was stressful and at times, aggressive. It does not allow for people to shine but wants to bring their competitive nature out. It begins with group assessment where you describe your greatest non-academic achievement followed by the Nasa walking across the moon test ending with a timed 30 second pitch as to why Turnstone should hire your partner. The one on one interview is short, 3 minute presentation (not always required) and interrogative questions as to why you want to be in sales / start a career in sales.

    Interview tips

    Make sure you are confident. It is what Turnstone are looking for and their interview is set out in such a way that they can see who is resilient, outspoken and their future employee. It is tough but the process clearly shows who suits a career in sales and centres on whether you actually want a career in sales.
