I applied through a recruiter and the process took 7 weeks - interviewed at Kaspersky Lab in June 2013.
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 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.
