    Territory Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Mars.

    Interview

    I applied online and took a few backs to hear back from them. The first step was an initial phone screening to go over your background and learn more about the opportunity. I was then invited to meet with the hiring manager for the area. Interviewed with 2 Regional Managers for the area and felt it went well. The interview lasted about an hour. It was pretty much all situational based questions. The entire process was pretty seamless. I felt I was a good fit because I have experience in CPG but was not selected to move forward. With that said, the company and entire interview process was very professional. They kept me informed the entire time, met their deadlines, and did not give me the run around. I was disappointed not to move forward but wish Mars and their people continued success.

    Interview Questions

    • All situational. Tell me about a time you had to meet a deadline. Tell me about how you handled an upset customer. They have a very specific way they want you to answer and took detailed notes on every question.   Answer Question

    Territory Sales Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mars.

    Interview

    Initially contacted by recruiter to set time & date.

    Interviewed by two of the local managers. Interview is totally behavior based, open ended questions. As a past sales manager I am not a fan of basing a candidates credentials for the position solely on pointed questions. All it proves is the candidate has the ability to recall situations under pressure. You are missing out on quality talent.

    I have 30 plus years of sales & sales management experience in the consumer goods industry. I was informed that they were passing on me. Months later, I sent in my resume again for the same position in another region, I was informed that my experience didn't match the requirements of the position. Totally porpostrus. Hopefully it is not an age based decision, which companies know how to get around.
