Regional Sales Manager - Golf Course Accounts Interview

Regional Sales Manager - Golf Course Accounts

I applied through other source and 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.

Interview Question – Can you work in a regimented and very procedural work environment.   View Answers (2)
