Product Specialist Interview

Product Specialist
Framingham, MA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Staples.

Interview Details – Applied through company's career website, was later contact by phone from a recruiter. Went through a short 10-minute generic interview on the phone with the recruiter. Was called again and asked to come to the HQ for a series of interviews. Individually interviewed with person currently in the role, a merchant in the department, the director of the department, and with the SVP of the division. Each interview lasted approximately 20-30 minutes.

Interview Question – They asked a lot of questions about how I thought my previous work experiences would apply to the job I was interviewing for.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They were firm on the salary but was able to negotiate for a slightly higher starting salary.
