Difficult Interview

Regional Director of Sales Interview

Regional Director of Sales
Arlington, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Marriott in March 2012.

Interview Details – A highly scripted process was in place when interviewed for a Sales position. The overall scenario and interaction felt very sterile - quite unlike the natural rapport building that happens in sales interactions - and in most Marriott interactions, inside and outside HQ. The process appeared to feel uncomfortable for the panel of interviewers as well. I wonder if they learn what they really need to know about a candidate to judge their capabilities for a job?

Interview Question – Describe the most difficult selling situation you encountered in which you were unsuccessful.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Offer was for a lower level position at 50% of my current salary. It felt insulting.

Director of Sales Interview

Director of Sales
Rogers, AR

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Marriott in September 2011.

Interview Details – My initial contact was with the AGM. I was responding to a networking lead. I was given the business card for the sales manager. I made contact and received a phone interview the same day. I scheduled a personal interview the following day. This interview lasted a little over an hour. It involved both the GM and Sales Manager. They did most of the talking and outlined the expectations of the position and the work culture. I believe that this company has very high expectations for the DOS position, and that the work culture is very much like a family.

Interview Question – How would you position yourself to gain access to a decision maker for a national corporation so that you could negotiate a corporate rate for our hotel?   Answer Question
