    Enterprise Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Louisville, KY
    Anonymous Employee in Louisville, KY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Lenovo in January 2013.

    Interview Details

    After networking my way through several contacts within Lenovo, I was highly disappointed in the overall experience with this organization. I completed a phone screen interview after leveraging 3 internal contacts for endorsements regarding the open position in a two state area.

    The phone screen was typical: we reviewed my resume, the role, and my history with technology sales experience. I was told due to my experience with Enterprise Accounts, my knowledge of the accounts & territory, and my previous partnering experience with Lenovo that I was a perfect fit for the role.

    The internal recruiter told me she would forward our conversation to the hiring manager, and I would hear back regarding a face to face interview within a week. After a week of no contact from Lenovo, I email my recruiter, with no response. So I called her directly, and she answered letting me know the manager was traveling and they were behind schedule, but I would have an answer in a few days.

    After multiple calls and unanswered voicemails & unanswered emails, i finally gave up on Lenovo.

    Public Sector Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Lenovo in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pre-screened for experience over the phone by a staffing consultant. Passed with no problem to 2nd phone screen about a week later. No problem there either and was scheduled for an in person interview.
    Had to drive 500 miles on my nickel to accommodate the interviewing manager, but we do what we have to. A manager the age of one of my children conducted the interview and was very distracted by the event she was attending at the hotel where the interview took place. I knew I was in trouble when she compared me to her father.
    Followed up with a thank you but didn't get a response, sent another email and made a couple of calls but still no response. Finally contacted original staffer and was told they hired internally. Wasted my time and gas. Took more than 1 month for the whole process.

    The interview process is pretty standard. First round is a phone interview, then followed by an onsite interview if you did well on the first round. Usually you will have the chance to your manager, second line manager and team members, they all have a say on hiring you or not.

    Simple, straightforward hiring process- contacted by the hiring manager first and set up an interview slot- only twist is that there was a presentation to be delivered to the hiring manager. Presentation skills and market research skills were tested during this presentation.
