Channel Marketing Manager Interview

Channel Marketing Manager

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Robert Bosch Tool.

Interview Details – Very professional and extremely friendly during both interviews. Although I didn't get the job, I must say it was the best interview I have experienced in the US so far. No silly questions, no baloney. Straight to the point, very honest job and qualification related questions.

Bosch is a very professional company embracing their German heritage. Don't expect questions like: I you were an animal, what animal would you be.

Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in 5 years.   View Answer
