    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Windstream.

    Interview

    had a phone screening and 4 other interviews. Met with the sales director twice, another sales director, a senior AE, the regional VP, and the sales engineer (each were individual interviews, not a panel, and not necessarily in that order). The two sales leaders and sales engineer were in person, the regional VP was over the phone. The regional VP was the toughest of them, followed by my sales director. It goes without saying, have a resume for EVERY interview and a portfolio and pen. I've seen the director cut interviews and the hiring process short for not having any of the above.
