Interview Details – The interview was with the hiring manager and the human resources director first, then followed by an interview with two current Key Account Managers. The format was a blend of behavioral and then followed by a case/audition where I had to sell to the interviewers based on a specific situation I was given.
Interview Question – The most difficult part was that I had never been presented with a case analysis situation on the spot and asked to solve it so it was unexpected; however, if you know how to sell and overcome objections it is pretty easy to tackle. Answer Question
