    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at B&H Photo Video (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The initial interview started out great, but wasn't so great in the end. I had a phone screening plus three in-person interviews.

    The initial interview process was good - I was contacted by the recruiter over the phone where I was screened for roughly 10-15 minutes. That process consisted of general questions by the recruiter. After that, the recruiter invited me to their corporate offices where I met the recruiter in person, face to face for a more detailed interview, questions were shot at me about my background and general work history.

    After about 20 or so minutes of answering the recruiters questions and going over my relevant work experience, the recruiter then suggested that I meet with the department manager of mobile phones over at 420 9th Ave., on the same day, which was no problem as it was literally a cross the street from their corporate offices.

    I walked over to the B&H store in anticipation, wait a little bit and I'm finally introduced to the department manager of mobile phones. This interview process was a bit easier, as he just basically quizzed me on my knowledge of mobile phones, accessories and other related products. This process also lasted out 20 minutes. The department manager seemed pleased, and said that I would be getting a call back next week.

    So, I get call back from the recruiter who says that he wants me to come by again to their corporate offices on 440 9th Ave. to meet with their Director of Sales -- I of course agree, and pick a day to come in.

    This is where it wasn's so great. I come in and briefly meet the recruiter who then escorts me to the Director of Sales, who starts to ask me about my work experience, as I'm detailing my work experience the Director of Sales cuts me off and proceeds to politely tell me that my 10 years of relevant work experience in mobile phone sales doesn't meet their requirements, he then politely tells me that there are lots of more qualified applicants for the position and ends the interview.
