Supply Chain Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at TESSCO.
Interview Details – So, I applied on the website and a few days later I get a call from HR. HR is very professional. I was sent a packet to fill out and bring to the interview. I arrived early like instructed and met with HR. I was told I would meet with the VP of Supply Chain Management, next. When I was done interviewing with HR, I saw her talking with a few manager's outside the door. The manager that conducted the interview was not the one who she told me would be conducting the interview. My credentials are solid, I will complete my graduate degree in Supply Chain Management, this spring. However, the interviewer let me know that credentials are not as important as being a "good fit."

Account Manager- Government Markets Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at TESSCO.
Interview Details – Initial phone interview with Sales Manager and Director was comfortable and focused on allowing me to ask good questions. Brought me in for an onsite interview. Very flexible with me as far as travel plans. In person interviews were long but expected. I interviewed with sales managers and even a VP. They were all interested in my current views of Tessco (since I was from the same industry) as well as what I viewed Tessco's value prop as. Very big on the value proposition as they should be.
Interview Question – How would you sell our value prop? View Answer
Negotiation Details – I had a number in my head and they hit that number on the first offer. I wasn't willing to poison the well for a few thousand more. There were time constraints as well.
