    Is it to work in Virgin Media's call centre doing Telesales or selling to the public face to face?

    For either job, they'll probably ask how you feel working to sales targets, speaking to a wide range of potential customers and what skills you've got to bring to the job.

    If it's for a Telesales job, make you sure you come across clearly on the phone as this will be a big part of getting a telephone sales job. Good luck!

    The job involves selling to the public face to face.

    I have done a fair bit of research about the type of questions they might ask, I do not wish to over research the subject too much as come tomorrow morning I will probably end up forgetting most of it!

    Cheers!

    Sorry I have been busy.

    If you have not had your interview yet they asked things like.

    What do you know about the company?
    Tell me a time when you had to work to targets?
    tell me a time when you when out of your way to please a customer?
    Tell us how you previously sold an item to a customer?
    what do you think a sales job involves doing?
    What skills on your CV are relevant to the job?

    And of course, do you have any questions to ask me?

    Ask things like, If I am successful, when would you like me to start
    what would a typical work week be like
    and there is no harm in asking the interviewer do they have any more questions for you.

    Good luck (If I am not too late)

    How do you get to the interview stage. You have to do a short personality test, but what traits stand out more than others
