    Territory Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irving, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Valspar (Irving, TX) in January 2013.

    Interview

    There were several layers to the process before interviewing with decision maker. Interviews were professional, not overly long, or challenging. Interviewers did a good job of painting the picture; what the environment was like, the culture, as well as what was expected on a day to day basis. The decision maker chose to utilize a third party screener to qualify final candidates, so there was little personal discourse, other than the 1:1 interview.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Valspar in April 2014.

    Interview

    Had a referral from a current employee. Met with his boss, which is the first step in the hiring process. We had a really great conversation. The best interviews are conversations and this was no different. Was asked about my work history and habits. Also had some 'what is the best way to handle this problem' type questions. The hiring manager said he would call me to set up a second interview with his boss. Never heard back. Sent an email about a week later, thanking him for the interview and that i appreciated his conversation. Never heard back, with no explanation or reason why.
