    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Altria in January 2018.

    Interview

    I applied on line and was emailed to set up a phone call screening interview. Was told it would be to discuss my work background, and career goals - but they did not ask me one thing about my background, my resume or my 15 years in outside sales. Only 3 or 4 behavioral questions about specific scenarios. Did not ask me about anything relevant to selling tobacco products to a convenience store.. I did a lot of research to
    prepare and read a lot about the company but was not asked anything about it.
    I don’t feel that the interviewer did a good job. No questions about my experience or my references whatsoever.
    Very disappointed with this company that I was so excited to work for.

    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlottesville, VA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Altria (Charlottesville, VA) in December 2017.

    Interview

    The process is not too hard, you just need to prepare. This was my first ever sequence of job interviews and I spent lots of time preparing and ended up doing well. For the behavioral interview, go over the S.T.A.R. method if you have never used it before. Think of experiences and how to speak about them in the correct format. For the panel interview, review basic sales calculations (margin, markup, COGS, etc) and strong sales pitch tactics. The whole point of this interview is to sell yourself, so if you can answer each question confidently, you've got it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Altria in November 2017.

    Interview

    A lot of your typical behavioral interview questions and it wasn't too bad. Then there was the situational question and you had to make a sales pitch which was intimating but the interviewers were nice so again wasn't bad. On the last interview you go to two stores and go through the process of what they do

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Altria.

    Interview

    There is three rounds, the first is a phone call, then a panel interview and lastly a "day in the life" type round. The phone interview was a quick conversation, mostly behavioral questions. The second round was the panel interview. They give you a very ambiguous case that you have 20 minutes to review and create a business plan for.
