I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Altria in March 2013.
Interview Details – Phone interview, 3 person panel interview, day in field. Know the STAR format right off the gate. The phone interview is an hr long, questions asked after answers and trying to rattle your cage. Panel interview is the same, specific questions about times you demonstrated "teamwork" and "leadership". Day in the field is the last stage, eat a big breakfast! You basically do all the work while the tsm, unit manager, and DM watch over you like a psycho mother. Awkward for the retail manager and yourself.
Interview Question – Describe a time.... You were in a group project that altered its direction... A time you handled a chaotic week... A time you analyzed data outside of school... A time you lead a group... Why did you choose your school? What do you base your academic success on? Basically every stupid question about leadership, teamwork, and analytics. Sales pitch at the end of panel interview. No time to analyze, just focus on long term relationships and emphasizing our product is better. View Answer
Reason for Declining – Offer from a better company with better morals. Managers and TSM in the division lacked a personality.
The process took 2 months - interviewed at Altria in May 2012.
Interview Details – Screening interview, panel interview, in the field interview. Be very active with the in-field interview! They want to see you sell and like the position.
Negotiation Details – No, they give you a salary work-up based on experience. Pay is great.
