Business Development Interview

Business Development
Tucson, AZ

The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Rain Bird in December 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process was a little unusual. Because the company is private nearly all of the information you might typically ask about various divisions, number of employees, etc. were either not answered or could not be answered by even senior management. Perhaps one of the most unusual things I learned was that at least 30% of their staff was "on notice" AT ALLL TIMES. They feel that this type of management is most effective. Furthermore, because of the secrecy, they embrace channel conflict and appear to do nothing to enpower synergies.

Interview Question – How would you feel if you were 100% of plan and put on notice?   View Answers (4)

Business Development Interview

Business Development
Cincinnati, OH

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Rain Bird in June 2011.

Interview Details – Interviews consisted of hiring manager, national manager, and vice president. Rain Bird pays all expenses for the travel and tries to be considerate of those individuals who are currently working in another position although it becomes cumbersome to take multiple hours/ days away from your current position to go through the entire interview process.
