    Sales Specialist Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at IBM (Durham, NC) in February 2016.

    Interview

    It started with a simple phone screening, run me through your resume etc... after that I had a 45 minute phone interview with a hiring manager. The interviewer was very engaging and kept the conversation going. Entirely behavioral questions, describe a situation you were a leader, worked in a team... things like that. My main problem was that I had a month between the phone screen and the first phone interview and they waited another month after that to tell me I wasn't moving on.
