    Interview Details

    Applied through campus recruiting, and it was a very smooth process. I had two on campus interviews, then I went on a ride-along type interview where I basically shadowed one of their TSMs (territory sales managers) for an entire day. That was more of a selling point for them as to why altria, rather than an interview for me.

    Interview Questions
    • They had me read a packet and make a pitch to them as to why to buy a certain product.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I declined simply because I saw that I wasn't really interested in Tobacco sales.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Altria in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    3 rounds of interviews. the most difficult part is the second round where you have to analyze a case study and show your findings to a panel of interviewers. Then you partake in a mock conversation with a store owner who is not selling enough of your product. Lastly, you are asked some more behavorial questions, like name a time when you were on a team that struggled. Explain what happened and what you learned from it, or something to that effect.

    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Altria in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    First you had to submit your application, get accepted to the first interview (based on the STAR behavioral method), then the second interview (also based on the STAR method). After the second interview if they invite you to the day in the field, they believe you are a good fit and you basically decide from there. You don't really get to pick where your internship is.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Altria in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    Found through university career fair, applied and was contacted almost immediately. Had a first round two-on-one interview on campus (mostly behavioral, then discussion about company) and two weeks later went out to Richmond HQ for final round. This was a round of interviews with Managers, mostly behavioral but some "Tell me about a time..." type questions. Also had a tour and a Q&A session. 3-4 weeks later got a call with the offer.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Altria in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Three rounds of interviews. First round was with one recruiter which was pretty informal, all fit questions just to make sure I was who my application said I was. Second round was more comprehensive. Took about 45mins-1 hour and was with three managers over the phone since I wasn't close to Richmond. All fit questions. Did well enough to procure a 3rd round interview which was also more fit questions and was much more difficult. They asked a few things I wasn't prepared for. Ultimately didn't receive an offer because they said they were going with someone with more experience in procurement.
