    Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Troy.

    Interview

    Traditional structured interview process - initiated through a recruiter. The recruiter contacted me and then facilitated phone contact with HR. Phone interview with HR.... then phone interview with Sales VP and sales director.... then in person interviews at corporate with a number of people related to the sales process. After that they had me do a personality and skills profile.

    They had an online tool for the candidate to enter 5 references - all of whom were contacted. They have an outside service that does background check, and resume check. I was required to provide W2s and 1099s for all employment that was listed on my resume in order to validate my employment as stated on the resume.

    After all of that - then I had to do a company physical - also coordinated by an outside service. The physical was done at a Concentric location . This process was a hassle - they had 2 urine samples (one for health and one for drug test). Magically concentric lost my drug test urine sample..... and weeks later they finally notified of that.... I was unimpressed with Concentric and how they handled that drug test.

    note - I recently learned that you can refuse to pass over your W2s and 1099s and ask the firm to contact previous employers since W2s are such sensitive documents, including ss#.... these outside services harbor lots of data on individuals wish is a bit scary with all the data hacks around us.

    Negotiation

    negotiated salary and vacation. They omitted sharing details on bonus mechanics and key dates on when the clock would start relative being eligible for bonus.... which would have been useful information to prevent (bad surprises)

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Newark, NJ
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Troy (Newark, NJ) in July 2016.

    Interview

    They require very formal attire. That wasn't a problem for me, but it was odd how many people asked if it was going to be an issue.
    Most people I met had only worked in NJ's chemical industry. Their business practices appeared to be stuck in time. One would have to work within that. I was willing to do so. In the end, they hired the "other candidate" who as a high school chemistry teacher who wanted to switch fields to Project Management. She had no training or experience in PM, but that was probably seen as a plus.
