    Customer Insights Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Altria (Richmond, VA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was similar to most of the others posted in the review section. It started off with a 30-minute phone call to answer basic questions, progressed to a phone interview with the hiring manager and then an in-person panel interview.

    The panel interview lasted two hours -- one panel per hour with five people in each panel. The questions were a mixture of STAR and industry/role specific ones. Expect to be able to answer questions on the types of data you've processed and cleaned, software familiarity levels, brand strategy and research methodologies. Solid knowledge of Altria products can also be beneficial.

    For me, I realized that they wanted someone with deep proficiency in data hygiene and analysis (SPSS and r knowledge came up several times in the interview) and that's not really my cup of tea.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Altria (Richmond, VA) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call to schedule a telephone interview with an Altria recruiter. Spoke with him several days later, and was then scheduled for a phone interview with two department directors. That call also went well, so I was invited for an on-site interview a few weeks later.
    The in-person interview consisted of two panels of people. Not having experience with panel interviews, I was a little taken aback by the format as it doesn't seem to be an effective way to get a feel for someone. I assumed that there would be a one-on-one discussion with the person who I would be reporting to as well, but there wasn't. Afterwards, I was taken to lunch by a few potential coworkers in the company cafeteria.
    I'm giving a neutral response because my telephone interviews with the recruitment office and department directors were positive experiences. However, the on-site process was very impersonal and required canned rather than thoughtful responses.

    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Initial phone screening asking about your work experience and STAR format questions. Second interview is panel with a mock sales calls where you are given 30 minutes to review and plan the sales call. Then more STAR format questions. No questions like the standard "experience or why you should be hired or what are weaknesses". Felt kind of rushed and like they were not interested just filling out the answers from STAR. Final is a Day in the Field. That was enjoyable because the rep was awesome.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Altria.

    Interview

    There were three rounds, with the last day being a "day in the field." The first two rounds were mostly behavioral questions. The main negative was that it was typically 1-2 weeks between each interview, which made the process seem long.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Altria.

    Interview

    The initial application and phone screening process moved quickly and efficiently. The on-site panel interview was reasonably scheduled within two (2) weeks. The actual panel interview itself was excessive. In two (2) hours, I fielded nearly a dozen situational questions. The interview was extremely formal and rigid with a one-way dialogue. Unfortunately, it felt more like an interrogation; it would have been more beneficial to have an actual, two-way conversation, so both sides could learn more. The next steps were unclear, and, after more than four (4) weeks, I never received an update of any kind.

    • Frankly, all of the questions were a bit formulaic without truly being focused on uncovering strengths.   Answer Question
