    Interview Details

    Standardized "HR" type questions in first two of three interview steps (2-phone, 3rd;last - in person). Third interview step was in person; very technical - really enjoyes getting to meet potential collegues. Great place to work; fantastic facilities and equipment for research - just not doing much research.

    Sales Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Altria in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume during a job fair and received an email a couple weeks later when Altria representatives were coming to campus. I had a first round interview with two sales managers from Altria, followed by a second round three days later with a panel of three Altira reps. The interviews were fine, and the people were very friendly and answered my questions well. The final round interview is a "Day in the Field" where you are taken out by two territory sales managers on their daily rounds. It was really interesting, and you gain a lot of experience in just the 8-9 hours of the day. I received a call with my offer a few days after my "Day in the Field".
