I applied through college or university and interviewed at Altria.

Interview Details – It's a three step interview process, with the last step being an onsite introduction to the facilities. The interview process and questions asked are pretty standard. All behavioral questions. My first interview was with one employee and overall, it was straightforward. The second interview was with two employees and although they were very friendly, I got the feeling it was more of a pressured interview.

I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Altria in October 2012.

Interview Details – I got an interview with Altria, during a Leadership Institute with Thurgood Marshall College Fund. The people that work for Altria are very energetic, and love working for this great company. This made me excited about the opportunity of working for this company. There are three steps to this interview, 1:1 then you proceed to a group/panel interview, then lastly you get a day in the field where they see if you are a good fit with the job opportunity.

Summer Sales Interview

Summer Sales
Indianapolis, IN

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at Altria in February 2010.

Interview Details – Initially I was preference listed by the company on my university's career services website, where I was subsequently given an interview on campus. I did the normal interview preparations (company history, structure, financials) and went into the interview feeling pretty good. I did agree to interview late with the company so they might have already chosen the candidates before I even interviewed. I think I was preference listed so quickly because they needed to reach a quota.

I applied through college or university and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Altria in April 2009.

Interview Details – Before my initial interviews I went to a networking session where I got to meet a lot of people from the company including upper-level managers. It really showed me how dedicated they were to recruiting top talent. I had my first interview with a group of two employees. After they decided who would make it to the next round, they took those people to dinner where you got to talk to employees more about their daily work routine. Then the second round of interviews was held with a group of three employees that were all higher level managers. Then the final round of interviews consisted of a daily in the field where you got to do out and see what a typical day is like to see if you think you would like to do the job for the summer.

Interview Question – How would you describe an effective manager?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Altria in December 2009.

Interview Details – There were two behavioral type interviews on campus each lasting 30 minutes. For the third, and final, round interview it was a "Day in the Field" with another candidate and two sales managers. The day in the field involved driving around to different gas stations or retail outlets and restocking the cigarette and other products as well as displaying any new promotions or marketing efforts.

Interview Question – During the final round interview, they asked for a lot of hands on tasks, including where we would position marketing/promotional signs which was unexpected?   Answer Question
