Territory Sales Manager Interview

Application Details

I interviewed 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 interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Wrigley in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was over the phone for 20 minutes. The lady was very professional and asked the basic questions. The second interview was with 2 men: the first was a regional manager, the other was a director. Both very nice men. That interview lasted about an hour. It was a very nice interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • They had also asked that we go to a store and give observations on how that store was being maintained - either a Walmart or a convenience store beforehand. In the interview itself they asked me to outline how I would meet my goals to see the stores in the territory and gave me a map to review.   Answer Question

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Wrigley in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    The process begins with a phone interview with human resources. The phone interview will last about 30 minutes and is very straight forward with around five behavioral questions. After this screening, there is a two person panel interview with two managers. This interview consisted of more behavioral questions and role plays.
