    I worked at Altria full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Commitment to values, that is woven into the everyday life and expectations
    - Fun culture, and strong focus on work life balance
    - Management truly committed to developing the next generation of leaders - lots to learn
    - Big organization - lots of room to move/learn different skills
    - Very competitive pay & benefits structure

    Cons

    - I struggled with our industry - wished we were more than just Big Tobacco
    - Not alot of turnover - which means you may have to wait for that promotion more than in a less stable company

    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Altria.

    Interview Details

    I interviewed at my college. I spoke with a recruiter who e-mailed me later and encouraged me to sign up. The interview was a 2-on-1 conversation, and they asked a series of behavioral questions (asked me to answer using the STAR method). Took very little interest in my past work and internship experience. I felt uncomfortable throughout the entire interview: the interviewers did not seem receptive to me or my answers at all, although I had solid work experience. I did not get an offer, but was sure upon leaving the interview that I did not want to go any further in the process anyways. I got a very negative impression of the company and its atmosphere through this interview and knew it was not a place I wanted to work.
