    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Anaheim, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Tyco in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process is very lengthy and there are numerous written and oral exams. The initial phone interview is very positive, but the one on one interview was completely different and had not association with the phone interview. Mostly it comes down to whether or not the sales manager likes you.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question is if you can make 40 cold calls a day and generate all of your own leads. That's a pretty depressing prospect and only the most desperate people usually answer yes.   Answer Question
