    Regional Sales Manager - Golf Course Accounts Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Rain Bird in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    Quick response after I emailed my resume to HR. Phone interview felt like more a technical knowledge quizzing than going over my successes in sales and business development. I had the field expertise from chemical/petrochem/refining work but I think he really wanted someone from the Ag engrg end. Being an avid golfer who has played overseas and resides in an arid climate was not an advantage.

    4 interviews within 2 weeks. Onboarding was a joke. I was given a laptop and a list of names and sent on my way.

    No situation, Action, results questions asked on the solution selling method or how one resolved a complex sale. Seemed that the hiring decision was based on if they liked you and not what your abilities were. No salary requirements given, except that there is a cap on what you can make.
