    Healthcare Account Sales Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Clorox (Minneapolis, MN) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I went through a recruiter. I had to record a five minute video for the Director, then a phone interview with Director of Healthcare Sales, and an in person interview with Director and Regional Manager in Minneapolis. It took 3+ months start to finish with all communication meant to go through the 3rd party recruiter. The in person interview was fine and fairly conversational, but the Director was not able to grasp what I had done in my previous job in medical sales. They have hired a lot of people from pharmaceutical backgrounds and even financial advisors. If you are from these backgrounds then you have a leg up on the competition. You can show as a pharma rep how you really go out there and dominate business all day closing deals left and right.

    I never received an answer as to a yes or no even with follow up through the recruiter, just a very vague maybe. Extremely disappointing given the time and effort that was invested in the process. The RM and/or Director should have taken the 30 seconds to personally respond to an email or pick up a phone to call me. Common courtesy was non existent especially given that I was the only person interviewed for the job.

    Interview Questions

    • Are you married (asked by both the Director and Regional Manager). Surprising and illegal.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Clorox (Oakland, CA).

    Interview

    Clorox has an excellent HR Recruitment Organization that was very professional throughout the process. The stayed in contact with me throughout the process as well to make sure things were "uneventful". The hiring organization was "orderly and efficient" throughout the process. There were more interviews than I would like but with appropriate roles.

    Interview Questions

    • The leadership team tended to be "out of step" with current trends in industry so there were not any difficult or unexpected questions. What was unexpected was a comment regarding a degree of disbelief in my well documented experience. In retrospect, that may have been more of a reflection on the time it takes to make progress on more initiatives due to the culture there.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase was efficient as well. I stated up front I considered it to be an indication of our prospective relationship. I also stated I expected a good offer, I would respond with any improvements I believed to be appropriate, and I would simple evaluate their response to either accept or decline. That kept the process simple.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Clorox (Atlanta, GA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    I visited the Clorox booth at my university, and they informed me that they were looking to interview people for their leadership Development program. I had not heard of the program, but was interested in the position. I signed up for an interview later that day, and did the first round with an employee. Very typical first round interview questions, he had told me that I did a good job and gave constructive criticism.

    I heard back roughly two weeks later that I have gotten the second round of interviews. Clorox made all the arrangements, paid for the flight and rental car to Atlanta.

    I flew down, stayed overnight in Alpharetta. In the morning I had two interviews with the business group in Alpharetta. They went well, very typical interviews. They started off behavioral, and became conversational. The interviewers were responsive, amiable people. I was able to really get in stride.

    The second set of interview was in Kennesaw, with the project management group. I had lunch with some of my future coworkers, and one of my interviewers. After returning to the office, I had two interviews. It ended up going well, again the interviews were conversational. I left straight from the office to go to the airport.

    I heard back within a month that I had been extended an offer.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Clorox in April 2013.

    Interview

    Initial communication was through email with current employee. Emailed resume to them then received email a couple days later request of inperson interview with them and three other people including their bosses and another manager. In total, interview diration was three hours long. There was a brief walk through of the departments and common areas. Each interview was repeat of the prior but with a tiny emphasis on a different aspect of position (ie handling of stress, communication ability, people skills) All questions were very generalized and vague.

    • nothing too detailed and as stated before, generalized in terms of skills looking for.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Clorox (Oakland, CA) in October 2012.

    Interview

    The first interview was an in-campus interview. Easy interview with basic technical accounting questions. the second interview was a long interview with 4 managers. Totally 5 hours interview in the second interview. They asked technical questions about income statement and equity statement. NPV and IRR are also required to be learned. although the job title is finance associate, they obviously want to hire someone with strong accounting knowledge rather than finance side. Statement of cash flow was also an important part they asked.
