    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at TESSCO in November 2014.

    Interview

    First interview with VP of sales. Straightforward questions about background etc. second interview was with a current sales manager. dialog driven discussion. at this point i was interested in working for this person. third phone interview was with an older gentleman - conducted the interview on a speaker phone and was either doing something else while speaking to me, or had other people in the room during the conversation. I left this conversation with a bad taste in my mouth for the company. heard shortly thereafter that they were going in another direction. I was not interested in the position after the unprofessional third interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at TESSCO in October 2014.

    Interview

    Interviewed with a director of sourcing. Informal discussion and spent most of the time talking about goals and objectives as well as the culture of the company. I thought, overall, it was a good experience. We had multiple discussions regarding the positions, the organization structure, and the strategy of the group over the next few years. We briefly talked compensation, but decided it wasn't a good fit at this time.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TESSCO (Timonium, MD).

    Interview

    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."

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at TESSCO (Baltimore, MD) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Long interview and vetting process. There were a minimum of 5 separate interviews. Many of the same questions just re-visited to determine thought process. There was an online personality test. Culture is key for this company, in fact it may be more significant to ensure you are a culture fit versus a candidate fit.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TESSCO (Hunt Valley, MD).

    Interview

    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.

    Negotiation

    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.

    Interview

    About a week after my application, received a call from HR. Did a 15-20 minute phone screen where they heavily probed for salary requirements. After that, I was set up for a double phone interview. Two managers were interviewing from the same pool of candidates for two different positions. After about 2 weeks, received an email that I was no longer under consideration.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at TESSCO (Hunt Valley, MD) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The review process is tedious. Too many folks involved. You find out later that everyone must march to the rhythm of Barney. In fact, it was pointed out during the interview process that you have to sit through many hours (8+) of watching Barney video tapes of his interpretation of the hedge-hog theory.
