Average Interview

Regional Sales Manager Interview

Regional Sales Manager
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Brother International.

Interview Details – Contacted first after answering a blind ad 3 months later by Regional Personnel Director. Was invited to meet with her the next day for 1/2 hour basic interview. Two weeks later met with National & Western directors for company in 2 hour interview. Two weeks later invited for further interviews and testing, given an offer that I excepted even though starting wage was well below what it should have been. I felt that there was opportunity I couldn't pass up.

Interview Question – I didn't feel there was either.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Basically in this case their was none as I had been out of the industry 15 years.

Easy Interview

Major Accounts Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee
Bridgewater, NJ

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Brother International in March 2012.

Interview Details – I was recruited by an Independent Contractor across the country. I dealt exclusively with him for over a month. i eventually had a face to face interview with my future boss that was easy. After this, more dealings with the Independent Contractor. Eventually, I was flown out to Corporate in NJ and interviewed with 3 VP's. I received offer through the Independent Contractor. Process lasted about 45 days.

Interview Question – Nothing really out of the ordinary. Most of the interview process was dialogue more than question after question.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation other than requesting a day off I needed.
