    Sales Researcher Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ottawa, ON (Canada)

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Halogen Software (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Following a phone interview was a second interview that was actually an unstructured conversation where we delved into the sales process, markets, future plans for growth, etc. The sales manager was very knowledgeable and the interview itself was very enjoyable. I was surprised at both the lack of technical questions and how I was not asked at all about my educational background and experience. I did try, however, to insert the information about my own background that I thought was the most relevant into the 'conversation.'

    The most thorough interview process I've ever undertaken - initial email from Canadian recruiter which lead to 1-1.5 hour phone call, then 1 hour phone call with someone from the global team followed by 30-45 minute group interview on-site with a couple of case studies. Feedback was provided 2-3 weeks later from another recruiter staff from Halogen.
