    National Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Tech Data in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    They make everyone go through 8-12 interviews. An incredibly long hiring process. You would think you had applied for the presidency. After a number of phone interviews they fly you into Florida where you spend an entire day in back to back interviews...

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Tech Data in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview first which is very akward since the HR recruiter is not a great communicater. In person interview which is much more relaxing but will go on for about an hour. Then they call you two weeks later to offer you the position, which i thought was a very long time to wait.

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Tech Data in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Went through hiring agency, interviewed by 2 sales managers, then director of sales. There's also a personality questionnaire. Didn't see the logic in that. Process took about 2 months. Most of the interview question were hypothetical situations. Best advice is to be honesty and express a willingness to work hard and learn.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Tech Data in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Hiring and Interview process is simple. Phone screening was done prior to face to face interview. HR process in arranging face to face interviews is pathetic. Arranged an interview with Marketing manager but position was for IT Intern. They did it correct the 2nd time. Interview was simple. Questions were related to the past experience and experience with the technology they are looking for.

    • Not very unexpected. Make sure you know your resume well.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Tech Data in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    USF Career Center told me about them and I applied for the job through their career site. I had many classmates in the MBA that worked for them and were swiftly promoted to more senior positions. Had to answer to behavioral and experience questions on an on-line form, then in a phone interview. Finally I had an on-site interview, where at first I shadowed an employee to see what the job was about, then interviewed by a senior and a junior recruiter. Lots of standard questions, straight from every manual about job interviews you've ever read.

    Interview Questions
    • It was the most detailed interviewed I had had so far, and when they finally asked "do you have any questions for us?" I naively answered "no". I wasn't called back, not sure if because I did a bad impression, or because I was overqualified for the position.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Tech Data in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process can be a little clugy sometimes. There's a lot of red tape to get through from what I understand. I personally had to wait for over two months for my Analyst II position to be approved, for example.

    Interview Questions
    • I didn't really have any 'out there' questions, or at least none that I didn't expect. The usual.   Answer Question
