    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Softchoice.

    Interview Details

    After submitting resume, you receive a call [most likely from Canada] where they ask you a few questions about your resume just as an initial screening. If everything checks out, they schedule a phone interview roughly a week later. After the phone interview, they contact you for an in person interview with a sales manager. Generally you have two in person interviews before an offer is made.

    Vendor Sales Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Softchoice.

    Interview Details

    I went through nine different interviews. Most were phone based, although three of them were on the same day back to back to back in the office. The in-person interviews were with people that had little to no interaction with the position for which I was applying. Each interview started with the question "what is your understanding of the position?" Each time, my understanding of the position was confirmed, although after accepting the position I found out that the position was 180 degrees different than what I had understood. The recruiting person was not very responsive or thorough with her follow up. Several times she would miss calling me at the appointed times to give me a status update, and my calls and emails went unanswered.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was one that I asked them. All I wanted to know was my status. The interview process lasted more than a month, and I had a very difficult time getting any kind of response.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to choose between two different offers. One of them was more base-salary heavy with less of a bonus potential, while the other had a higher bonus potential with a lower base.
