    Business Products Technical Support Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woburn, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Kaspersky Lab in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process for me was a two step process. First was a call from Ray Barrett (Corporate Support Manager). He conducted a brief phone interview asking general questions a Computer guy or girl should know (What is a GPO, What does Ping do, What does ipconfig/ifconfig do) and some questions about me. Answer as many as you can but do not hesitate to tell them that you are not sure and will be glad to check it out. After the phone interview, I received a reply from Kaspersky asking me to come in for an interview. That was also quick and painless. I was asked more technical questions and personal ones. After about 15-20 minutes they they let me go stating that I did very well. I received a reply a few days later saying they would like to offer me the job.

    Regional Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Kaspersky Lab in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Straight forward process...1) Initial screening with HR/Staffing Manager 2) 15 minute discussion with the hiring manager 3) Colleague interviews and 4) I believe the top two candidates made it to the final step which was a thorough interview with the hiring manager. This final phase was entirely focused on sales process, how do you penetrate an account, how to you determine the primary decision makers, provide an example of a large win, why did you win, why did your competition lose.

    Kaspersky Lab is in a competitive marketplace, but they have a very good story and offer a solid solution. To be successful, you have to be able to pay close attention to key decision criteria by the client and align not only your solutions strengths to the criteria but the unique partnering experience Kaspersky provides. You must also be comfortable not being the primary brand in the marketplace Kaspersky competes, but rather, like the idea of representing a solution that is often times the underdog.

    Interview Questions
    • Unexpected Question: Technology aside, why would a customer buy a solution from "you", what do you specifically have to offer versus another sales professional   Answer Question

    Inside Sales Representative, Enterprise Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Woburn, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Woburn, MA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Kaspersky Lab in December 2008.

    Interview Details

    I spoke with hiring manager, by phone for 1 hr, then had another 1on 1 in his office for 1.5 hours, At that time I met several members of the sales team.I then had telephone interviews with the field channel managers. whole process took 3 weeks to a month.
    Benefits are excellent and my team members were top notch.
    The people I worked with not on my team were great, and top notch.
    However, I would stay away from Kaspersky commercial sales - In 2009 the ISR's goals were raise over 100% in six months. Not one ISR met goal during the first 3 quarters of 2009.
    One comment I will never forget though was," If someone told me six months ago I would be doing XXXXX
    I would have said no @$#^$$# way, Now I guess I have just gotten use to it."
    All selling is done through Channel Partners.

    Interview Questions
    • No questions were tricky, The Manager(now director) is very straight forward.
      However make sure all your questions are answered and your offer letter reflects to the letter, what the manager offered during the interview.
        Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I don;t think this is relevant because the change in the variable part so much that you'll end up making 60-70 regardless what your base is.
