Regional Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Quincy, MA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (Quincy, MA) in October 2017.

Interview

a recruiter reached out to me and scheduled an in person interview the very next day. As soon as I walked in I could tell this company was bad. Everyone looked miserable and the overall vibe was off. The two people who interviewed me were distracted by texting and emailing half the time. they repeated questions and brought up irrelevant unanswerable topics. HORRIBLE PROCESS. just read over these reviews and how bad others time here was- dont waste your time

The VP literally told me that they send 20 new hires into training and 19 of them will quit. When I asked him why that is he told me "they aren't strong enough".

They require you to wear a suit and tie -- to make phone calls... Why?

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (Atlanta, GA) in January 2018.

    Interview

    First you have a phone screen with a recruiter. Then if they like you they will have you interview with two directors and the RVP for one day. If the three of them like you then they will have you come back and shadow for a half day. You will end your half day shadow by sending an email to the RVP about why he should hire you. From there they will wait about a week and reach out to you with an offer letter if they are interested in hiring you.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (West Palm Beach, FL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I have a friend who works in sales there. He connected me with their internal recruiter who set up interviews with management. I believe their first step is to have you go through a CTS sales profile. If you qualify from there then they gear their interviews in a two step process. The first is with the sales managers. They then converse on their side and if they like you, they bring you back to sit down with the office VP and what they call a job shadow. You spend some time with a current employee to see the tasks they do on a daily basis.

    After the 2nd visit, thats is when they either make you an offer or they decline.

    Regional Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Granite Telecommunications (Atlanta, GA) in November 2014.

    Interview

    1. Initial Phone Screen
    2. Online Sales Assessment
    3. In-person interview with HR and onsite manager
    4. 2nd interview with Senior Level Manager
    5. Half day or Full day shadow with associate
    THE INTERVIEW PROCESS WAS WAY TOO LENGTHY. First you will be contacted by their HR guy, somebody named Greg, then you will be asked to do a 45 minute online sales assessment. Once that's completed, this Greg guy will then set you up for an in-person interview at the site location, where you will meet and talk with him for another 2 hours and then you will speak with the hiring manager. After that's completed. He will then schedule for you to come back for a full day of shadowing. Keep in mind they are not paying you nor have they've given you a tentative offer. But OK, you come back and shadow the sales team for the day. You go around asking them how they like the job, what do they find most challenging etc. You will also be expected to meet with a Senior Level Manager. And before you begin shadowing, they gather the entire office and everyone goes around to introduce themselves and then you give your 30 section commercial about who you are. Completely irrelevant and silly if you're not hired of course. Now after all of that, you get to wait 2-3 weeks to receive an email to say, you weren't selected and they've gone with another candidate. Yippy!
