    The process was very straightforward, I'm not sure the hiring manager knew what he was looking for or the HR person, I received very positive feedback. It was so positive I thought an offer was going to be made. This interview was a month ago and to this date I still have not heard back, not even a "sorry we find another candidate" email no communication what so ever.

    Regional Business Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Albuquerque, NM
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Tyco in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed in Albuquerque with regional manager and four other employees at one time. They call it a panel. This was after two phone interviews. Having asked my own questions I realized that the panel was not on the same page or seem to understand what the vision is for their region. Heard a lot of negative commits from manufacturers about the office just prior to the interview and Simplex in general. Decided to go ahead with interview to form my own opinion. Wish I did not go. Clearly not a good fit for me. Traveling from out of state, the regional manager said my travel expenses would be reimbursed. After three months I'm still waiting.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tucson, AZ
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Tyco in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    I got a call from a very nice recruiter. She said she had sent my resume to the regional manager and he wanted to speak with me right away. I told he could go ahead and call anytime. He called me a couple of hours later; very nice guy. He asked me about my experience and may resume. He then asked me how I would go about selling a customer. I told him I would start by asking questions. He then said "I find that hard to believe, you have talked a lot during this interview." Well he did ask about me and my experience; I took it as something he used it as something to throw me off. I then asked him some closing question: Would agree that I have the experience and track record you're looking for? He said yes. I said good so what is our next step. He said well if you make it to the next step you will have to take the Chally test. Then he gave me his selling philosophy. "He said most people have the perception of sales people as tall, handsome, and fast talking people." "I believe that sales people need to really take care of the needs of the customer." I said I totally agree but I must warn you, I am kind of handsome. He laughed and said I would probably move to the next level.

    A couple hours later the recruiter called me and said he really liked me and I would get another interview. In the mean time they would send me the Chally test. Got the test took it on Friday got a call on Monday that they had lowered the field to me and two others and I had scored the highest on the test. The interview was to be on Thursday at 9:00 AM and they wanted me prepare a presentation on how I would do the job in the first 90 days. I did quite a bit of research and put together what I thought was a good presentation.

    Thursday at 9:00 I met the operations manager and the regional guy I had talked to on the phone. The asked a lot of questions, I also talked a lot and everything for the first hour and forty five minutes seemed to be going very well. Then I asked what had happened to the previous rep and the rep before that? Neither rep had lasted a full year but I have been in the business for a while many reps don't make it. Then I asked what the territory sales were; the number was so small I blurted out: HOW DO YOU PLAN TO PAY ME ON THOSE KIND OF SALES? They said well how much money do you need? I gave them a hard number which was dumb and the whole tone of the interview changed.(the recruiter had told me the number) I asked what the thought of my presentation? Which was a step by step of how I would go about selling some of the market segments. The Regional said he was really looking for a 90 day decision matrix. Beautiful, a decision matrix, okay. Then he began asking me some accountability questions: call reports and such and now my mood had changed and I was no longer interested and they were not either. Basically, I walked out of the meeting without shaking any hands.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Tyco in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process was relatively straightforward although I'm not sure the hiring manager knew what he was looking for. I received very positive feedback from the hiring manager through the recruiter several days after the interview. It was so positive that the recruiting firm senior management team thought an offer was going to be made. However, the hiring manager then reversed his thinking and decided to interview other candidates.
