Territory Sales Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Alpharetta, GA
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (Alpharetta, GA) in May 2016.

Interview

The process was professional and long. I think I got lost in the interview process due to the original hiring manager was promoted. They scheduled a phone interview which went well. Then a 1:1 interview was provided. I spent 8 hours with a ride along who was late. Then the hiring manager got promoted and I got lost in the system. I think I might have gotten the job had the new manager been prepared by the company.

Interview Questions

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ecolab (Orlando, FL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Had first interview at campus career fair, had a really good interview so didn't have any phone interview. The next step was a ride along with someone in the same position that was a trainer that was the whole day. I then had a interview with the regional manger and then meet with the district manager for a interview.

    Interview Questions

    • My first interview involved a lot of situational question what would you do in certain situation, as well as them asking about me and my experience. I was asked at each level of interviewing process to describe how I would handle stressful situations as well my long term and short term goals.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There wasn't a negotiation phase commission plus salary, take it or leave it but tons of opportunity to grow if that is what you are looking for.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Ecolab (Kansas City, MO) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Met two different District Manager at Panera Bread and the interview was very casual and laid back. After talking and discussing my resume, the two DM's then consulted with each other for about 10 minutes. After that, I was given an offer, accepted, and signed the offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ecolab (Asheville, NC) in September 2011.

    Interview

    I applied via Indeed.com for a Territory Sales position. I had a phone interview, which led to an interview with a District Manager and a Regional Director. The phone interview was pretty typical--why are you interested in Eco Lab, what experience do you have, etc. The panel interview was rather informal and went well. I was one of 3-4 candidates. I specifically asked at the close of the interview if I would be notified of the decision regardless of outcome. I was told by the DM that he would be back in touch personally in the next 3 days (a Friday). Friday came and went and there was no word, I let it go until Monday afternoon and contacted the DM ( I made sure I got his card and number). He was out so I left a message. A couple more days passed with no word. I sent an e-mail to him--no response. I sent a follow up e-mail and copied the Regional Director. I finally got an e-mail from the DM after that, at which point he informed me they chose someone else and he stated that he never said he'd get back to me. He also stated that apparently I was not interested in being part of his "development bench" since I was so impatient with him. Not a good finish to an otherwise promsing interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ecolab in November 2011.

    Interview

    Was offered a telephone interview two days in advance of the interview date. Phone promptly rang at the agreed-upon time and an HR representative introduced herself and explained how long the call would take (30 mins) and what would take place. She proceeded to ask me a series of standard interview questions...a Google search for "Top 20 Interview Questions" will give you all you need. Although I did a lot of company research, no questions were asked of me where I could show off what I knew. Questions were followed by a very thorough description of what the job would entail, benefits, advancement opportunities, training details, etc. I was told I could expect to hear back within the next week or two as to whether I will be moving forward in the hiring process.
