Regional Sales Manager Interview

Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Avalara.

Interview

Attended a job fair at their corporate office. About a few who attended were wearing suits...I was shocked at how casual applicants were. I was bold, asked who the managers were and went up to introduce myself to all of the key managers. They apparently liked that and they "flagged my resume". Their in house recruiter said that three managers requested interviews the following week.
I interviewed with the two managers I thought I might want a position with. First one on one, then only one had his other employees interview me as well. I liked that because it's important that a "team" gets to pick someone they like.
The other manager didn't have his team interview me, but he was great and I chose a job on his team.
When they offered a job, there was little information about compensation or benefits, but I was in a place to be easy going, so I accepted. They were pretty timely in their responses.

Informal & I wasn't a hard-ass...neither were they. I should've been more of a hard-ass.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avalara (Bainbridge Island, WA) in February 2014.

    Interview

    The process started wtih a phone screen with a recruiter. From there, you interviewed with the front line manager. If that goes well, they have you speak with some of the team members and the final interview goes through the VP of Sales. Straightforward process for sales positions. Just be confident and do your homework ahead of time.

    Phone interview with HR, then manager, then in-person interview with the manager and a few team members. HR called to make offer and negotiate salary. I also requested informational interviews with team members and was able to speak with two. Everyone was very informative and welcoming .

    Negotiation

    HR called to make the offer. I got the impression there isn't a very wide range of salaries for each position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Avalara (Bainbridge Island, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    After the standard phone interview I was asked to come in to the office and "meet the team." The process was more a tour of the office and meeting different members of the sales manager team. four or five sales managers would sit with me one at a time and we would have a back and forth conversation about myself, and my qualifications/ intentions. And myself asking them about their motivations and experiences with the company.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Avalara (Durham, NC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Great conversation with initial recruiter then brought in for an in-person interview with current sales reps, two managers, and the Sales Director. All were very professional and willing to let me interview them about the company, not just interviewing me. They were very quick to get back to me with an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avalara.

    Interview

    4 steps. Phone screen, demo, in-person meeting, and final interview with EVP. Very standard, the phone screen goes through your qualifications, the demo tests your presentation skills, the in-person meeting sees if the team likes you, and the final interview is for the sign off. It seems like by the time you get to the final interview, the job is yours to lose.

    Negotiation

    The offer was as expected, no negotiation was needed.
