District Sales Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in Jacksonville, FL
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products (Jacksonville, FL).

Interview

It was a pretty typical interview, nothing very stressful. I met with another District Manager who liked my personality and had told me there was a temporary position available. She gave me a brief "interview" and called her manager to set us up to meet and continue with a formal application and interview.

    Interview

    Bogus! Role playing! Asked questions that you see was never part of what a DSM role does! Most executives and HR personnel have no clue what DSMs go through and give you bogus questions!

    Interview

    Lengthy process - really had to sell yourself for this position and they put you through many hoops. Phone interview, face-to face, then a day in the field with another DM. Then I had to go to a group meeting where we all had to compete in tasks.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Avon Products (New York, NY) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I was recommended for the job and told I would have a phone interview first. I had a phone interview which lasted about a half an hour which Incorporated questions about myself and about how I would handle certain situations. I then was told I would have another phone interview by somebody in a higher position, which I did a few days later. I later had a day out in the field with an established district sales manager to see if I would like it. I had one more phone interview after that and then was offered the job. The whole process took about 2 weeks.
