I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Forrester Research in March 2010.
Interview Details – The interview process is pretty standard, internal and external.
If you are external, they will do the phone screening process / skills tests / background check.
You might have another phone call with the recruiter after but more often than not they call you in for the in person interview.
The in person interview consists of 4 to 6, back to back, 30 minute interviews with relevant team members/management.
In general, they will all ask similar questions, with a few of their own to spice it up. Assuming you make it through that interview process, they may have you do a small sales presentation. Nothing to get nervous over, it's meant to see your raw speaking skills.
Interview Question – The generic situation / reaction questions: if you were put in this type of sales situation, how would you react and/or change your sales approach. View Answers (2)
