District Sales Manager Interview

District Sales Manager

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Avon Products.

Interview Details – Filled out online application was contacted by hiring agent who conducted phone interview. Was referred to HR for scenario type interview. Was contacted by Division Manager for phone interview and set up ride along with another District Manager (highly recommend) Spoke with Division Manager after ride along.

Interview Question – None of the questions were difficult if you have direct selling leadership experience.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The region I would be responsible for was an hour away and I feel the position is better suited for someone who lives in the area or does not have a family. The job offers a lot of flexibility if you live in the area.

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Avon Products in January 2013.
