Interview Details

The entire process took about 3 weeks for a position as a Sales Intern. Started with a phone interview, about a 30 minute interview with basic STAR format questions. Was asked back for a panel interview on campus with a few of their representatives. Was fairly intense and they provided a sales case to come up with on the spot.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Altria.

    Interview Details

    There are basically 3 rounds of interviews
    You first have to make a good impression at a career fair or meet and greet to get your name out there so they will select you to interview with them

    1st round: All behavioral questions using the STAR/SCAR method. All were pretty difficult and most were unexpected and hard to prepare for.

    2nd round: You get 30min to look over a hypathetical case about a certain sales situation. You will be provided with a lot of sales data, pricing data, and demographic data. You have to be able to analyze all of the information and create a sales pitch in the 30 min they give you. You then are taken into a room with a panel of interviews and roll play the scenario for the first 20 min or so. Then they ask you about 3-4 more in depth behavioral questions not related to the case.

    3rd round: This is a "Day in the Field" where they make sure you would be a good fit for the company. You also get the opportunity to see true insight into what you would be doing as an intern

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Altria.

    Interview Details

    The interview consisted of three parts. The first part is a general behavioral interview. The want you to walk them through problems and solutions in the situations you are asked to talk about. The second interview was with 2 managers. This involved more behavioral questions, but also role-play questions. Be prepared to be on your feet. The last interview is a "Day in the Field", you can see if you are good fit and they can see whether you are qualified or not.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Altria in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    I knew quite a few people with the company, attended all their events on campus, and made it to the second round of interviews. I was very prepared and answered all the questions efficiently. During the first round it was a phone interview with two distract managers. They asked basic questions about your resume and one behavioral question and one situational question. Basically, making sure you are what your resume says. Round two is in person with 2-4 district maangers. It is about an hour and 15 min wrong. I would say your basic interview except at the end you are asked to role play how you would make an effective sale.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a dayinterviewed at Altria in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Basically just behavioral questions. Key questions would be:

    - How do you feel about working for a Tobacco Company
    - Name a time when you failed, what your steps to success after?
    - What gets you excited in and out of the classroom?

    Very informal, more conversation than interrogation. Ask you what about Altria grabbed your attention and why you think you would be a good fit for the company.
