    Lenovo Accelerated Sales Program Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Morrisville, NC
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Lenovo (Morrisville, NC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    This interview process was very smooth. The entire process which included a video resume, on site meet and greet event, and formal interview day (10 min. presentation on a given topic, team exercise, and standard interview) only took about 1 month to complete and receive a decision. I received constant and timely feedback after completing each phase. The entire process is very straightforward and they are looking to see your personality and fitness for sales.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Lenovo (New York, NY).

    Nothing happened according to their timeline. CEB test cancelled, process started in September at university career fair, got an email shortly for CEB test which was cancelled and replaced by video interview a month later. Onsite interview which included individual and group case in November. Got selected for further round. Scheduling took forever and had a half n hour interview at end of December. No reply given until now despite contacting the recruiter. Finally after all the wait I accepted another offer elsewhere.

    Channel Sales Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Lenovo.

    Interview

    Interview process was fairly straight forward and not challenging. Been in far harder settings. Face to face was the final with 5 or 6 other interviews. The process was HR, hiring manager and then a few other peers and directors then a final interview with the hiring manager. Questions were many situational and around my background and why I would be a good fit for the role.

    Lenovo Accelerated Sales Rotational (LASR) Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Raleigh, NC
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Lenovo (Raleigh, NC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    Interview process was pretty straight forward. Apply online through their website, then they will contact you if they like you. Next step is an online "interview" that is prerecorded. You simply are given some time to answer record your answers on camera. If they like your video interview, then they invite you for an on-site interview in Raleigh, NC.

    First night, there is a meet and greet with other candidates and some staff. Then the next day, there is an interview that consists of a "Why Lenovo" pitch to some employees, 2:1 interview (2 employees questioning you), and a team exercise (come up with a game with highest margins possible that you can market in a certain amount of time)

    I had an extremely negative experience once I was invited to Raleigh for an in-person interview. First, most firms offer to pay travel costs. Lenovo requested I drive from the Washington, DC area. Not a huge deal since I have a reliable car and I'm used to driving long distances. However, they only offered to reimburse for gas expenses. Every other employer offered to pay the standard IRS deduction - 54 cents per mile. This equals roughly $300 + hotel expenses for reimbursement, but with gas only, my reimbursement was a little under $100. Not a huge deal, I was asking for a job after all, and they said my hotel would be prepaid.

    However, upon arrival to the hotel, I had to pay for the room on my own personal credit card and wait several weeks for Lenovo to straighten things out and have the hotel refund my credit card. As for the ~$100 gas expense that they promised to reimburse, no such luck as of mid-January 2017 (My interview was in November 2016. Seems pretty unprofessional - I reached out to the recruiter, who has been promising to get me my reimbursement in November/Early December, but recently, have been ignoring my emails.

    The recruiter also thought that it would be acceptable to share my personal information with a contractor, CTG, that Lenovo uses. I have accepted (a significantly better) offer a couple before Lenovo's decision for this position was released. I relayed this information to my recruiter, but he unprofessionally decided to forward my information to a 3rd party company instead.

    Given my experience with Lenovo, I would be extremely hesitant to consider the firm as a future employer
