Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager
Philadelphia, PA

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Scotts Miracle-Gro in February 2011.

Interview Details – They question you on everything from your first job to your current status and future goals. A great company with an interesting business model for the field sales teams. The Sales Managers all work together to be successful. They want motivated and hungry people who aren't afraid to work 70 hours a week during the 100 days of hell in busy season.

Interview Questions

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate tuition reimbursement immediately instead of a trial offer. The salary and bonus was a huge improvement so who was I to argue.

Sales Manager Interview

Sales Manager
Cleveland, OH

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Scotts Miracle-Gro in October 2010.

Interview Details – Phone interview went well, mostly simple background questions. Second interview with Dist. Mgr and the person who previously held the open position (he was recently promoted). I thought the interview went very well, more in depth questions about work history, future plans, some situational questions but nothing drastic or uncomfortable. I thought it all went well but a "thanks, but no thanks"e-mail a few days later crushed my hopes. Too bad. Seemed like a nice place to work. Interviewers were very nice and professional without being stuffy. Company has good reputation for career advancement. I think they're after young employees who want to start climbing that corp ladder.

Interview Question – Are you willing to work long hours (60+/wk) during the busy season (Spring, early Summer)?   Answer Question
