I worked at AltriaPros
High pay, close contact with upper management. Lots of autonomy within the job. I can see someone loving this job if they are into the lifestyle.Cons
Selling cigarettes to people that can't afford to be smoking them. You spend all your time in convenience stores. I was so ready to not see another 7-eleven for the rest of my life.

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Altria in August 2014.Interview Details
Applied online after meeting with a Local Unite Manager at a career fair (Not University). Applied for position located in Albuquerque, NM.
Participated in phone screening call. Basic Behavior Questions in STAR format.
Next was in person panel interview. They flew me out to Albuquerque and put me up in a hotel for the night. Next morning, met with Unit Manager and another TSM. Filled out some paperwork that was misplaced by someone thinking that my application was for some other territory. This took about 30 minutes before we were able to actually start the interview. I was then handed a packet of fictional sales data for a hypothetical company. I was to review the information and participate in a case study. Then answered some more behavioral questions.
After the panel interview, we went out in the field and participated actively in the TSM role. Only visited 2 outlets before they had to have me back to the airport for my return flight.
Overall, positive interview, nice folks and I would have loved to receive a job offer.Interview Questions
