Here are sample answers for the interview question "Have you consistently met your personal and professional sales goals?"

Sample Answers

  • I have met or exceeded my personal and professional sales goals consistently over the past 10 years.
  • I have always met or exceeded my professional sales goals, and most often my personal ones too, especially in the last few years. I think with experience, I have learned to set my personal goals at an attainable level, very high, but not unreachable.
  • The only time I wasn't able to meet my professional sales goals was at a company where my supervisor set the goals extremely high, and none of the salesmen in our department were able to achieve them. Setting the goals so high was his method of keeping us motivated, and unfortunately it worked to demoralize the team instead. I have always at least met my personal goals, and I work very hard to exceed them.
