Regional Sales Manager Interview
I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at SuccessFactors.
Recruiter-->Phone Screen-->Phone Interview w/ mgr-->face to face interview with two mgrs. and a presentation. If they're not in the middle of a realignment, then you should be getting a call for a job if you've made it this far. Otherwise, they're not good at following up with applicants.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at SuccessFactors (San Francisco, CA) in March 2013.
There is a multi-step process to get hired and they are very good at screening people, but with the right core competencies and skills in the range of the job -if you have passion and a great attitude, you can be successful. It's worth the time it takes.
- I was required to do a pitch of the product for my hiring final step, to a team of people that pitch it! - and the highest ranked person asked towards the end - if I could contractually obligate to the ROI. 1 Answer

The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at SuccessFactors (San Clemente, CA) in February 2008.
Fairly typical and non-differentiated interview process. Started with a phone screen with the recruiter (I applied on the companies web site). After two 30 minutes phone discussions, had an hour long interview with the hiring manager: he is the reason I joined the company, and he is no longer there. This was followed by an hour long interview with the SVP of the region. Last part of the interview process was a phone interview with the VP of worldwide sales. There was no new content gleamed from the interview with senior management - it felt more like a formality. The recruiter touched base all along to confirm steps and process and was quite professional - although a bit young (I could tell he has not been in this game for a long period of time). I found it interesting that the company did not ask me to come to HQ to experience the culture of the company - again, this goes back to the arrogance of the firm - assuming that everyone is sold, and there is no need to spend extra time to set up a visit to HQ. I found that the interview lacked two important data points: specifics on territory nor compensation plan. This was a yellow flag, which became a major reason for my voluntary departure (tiny territory, hard to make a living).
I would strongly caution new sales reps to think twice about coming to work at this company. The solution is not that differentiated, has a lot of weak points (reporting, recruiting, compensation) and your territory will be quite small.
- There were no difficult or unexpected qeustions Answer Question
Not much was up for negotiation. I negotiated my starting salary and date - no options, no signing offer,no territory discussion. Company is pretty arrogant and thinks that people are dying to work there, not willing to be flexible.
