    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Daktronics (Brookings, SD) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Took a long time to get initial response. Phone interview, then corporate day long interviews. Took a long time to get the offer callas well.

    Interview Questions

    • Asked many questions about approach to selling, none too difficult.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation was offered to me. This is not the case today though. With experience you may be able to lobby for more pay and/or more time off.
