    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wrigley.

    Interview Details

    The process began with a phone interview from headquarters. After that, you were assigned an in-person interview with the Regional Manager. The interview instructions were very detailed and organized. Applicants were asked to stop into some retail stores ahead of time and check shelves, product, i.e., do some research. The actual interview was in a conference room with two people. The questions were challenging and thoughtful- they wanted to know how you would handle multiple accounts, conflict, sales obstacles, etc. After all the questions, you were asked to "act out" a sales interaction.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult part was role playing. They give you a one-sheet about optional displays, end caps and pricing, about 2- minutes to study it. Then they return to the room to act out the scene. You are the Wrigley rep and he/she is the store owner. Your job is to sell them a new display.   View Answer

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wrigley in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on line. The process was pretty quick. Had a phone interview and then a few weeks later an in person interview. The job sounded like a great job. I dressed professionally as anyone should for an interview, and that seemed to throw off one of the interviewers. He felt that I might be too out of touch with the demographic.

    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Wrigley.

    Interview Details

    Although the phone interview was a positive experience, the live panel interview felt like a condescending waste of my time from the start. I was dissuaded from the job for several reasons (all of which were covered in the job description, no secrets), they gave my resume several saccharine compliments which all seemed to lead directly to the question 'why would you want THIS job', and they made me role play my current job - which they admitted knowing nothing about. The panel consisted of a wide-eyed current TSM, doubtless their rockstar with management aspirations; the hiring manager, who couldn't mask his boredom by the end; and an out-of-market manager who really led the condescension with a lot of "I don't get it" looks and responses to my interest in the role. When he asked a behavioral question and I told them I didn't have any relevant previous experience, he tried to tell me my response should be in the format of a situation, a task... - buddy, not my first rodeo. Seemed like on one hand they were saying I was overqualified while on the other hand they were implying this job is above me (it is most certainly not).
    They got their questions off a list with Wrigley branding on it, but didn't ask nearly as many behavioral as I expected. Asked more about my work experience, what-if scenarios and way too many baiting questions about my current boss and job. I'd have preferred not make it past the recruiter if the hiring manager had no intention of taking me seriously. Was relieved in the end I didn't get the offer, as the experience soured me on the company.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Wrigley in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interview took place at a career fair and the interview process took three days from start to finish. It was a face-to-face interview with someone in the procurement field (position I was interviewing for) and a talent acquisition manager. I was asked situational and technical questions by the individual in the procurement field and behavior and past experience questions by the acquisition manager. Both of these individuals were very comforting and made me feel very relaxed throughout the interview. They answered all of my questions and painted a very detailed picture about the work culture at Wrigley. After my interview, they kept in contact through email the next 24 hours which was then followed by a phone call. The interviewers were very kind, considerate, and easy to work.
