Director of Sales Interview
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at EF Education First.
Included multiple interviews with senior/executive management team, HR, and potential teams I would be managing. Included initial phone screen and three in-person interviews. Each in-person interview included meeting many people throughout the product, which helped me understand the team, culture, environment, needs of the business, etc. Multiple meetings with my direct peers and management team was great to ensure I would be a solid fit within the management team.
- What is your management style? How to you engage with employees? How do you hold employees accountable? How would you introduce our product to a potential customer? How do you analyze a market? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at EF Education First (Denver, CO) in November 2012.
All telephone interviews and online assessment. The HR Generalists are not well trained and don't ask behavioral questions just "yes" / "no" questions. They don't understand sales or management/leadership of employees. I chalked this up to inexperience or poor training. Made it to second & third round only to find out that the next levels didn't interview that well either. Coordination of schedules were on their time and had little regard for the fact that I had a job and a schedule to keep also.
- Do you like to travel? (unexpected given they are a travel company. another example of a poorly worded question, what elsle are you going to say than "yes, like to travel" if you want the job) 1 Answer

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at EF Education First (Boston, MA) in August 2009.
The interview was very straightforward. They wanted to know if I was serious about wanting the position, if I could persuade people to buy products and if I could work the hard hours and travel schedules they were offering. They asked me about previous experiences, accolades and recommendations. They also asked me how I matched with the job description. There were no trick questions, no nightmare stories. Straightforward interview.
There was no negotiation. I either took what they offered or I didn't. That is how they posed it. They gave me a couple of days to decide.
