    Strategic Accounts Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Irvine, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Nortel Networks (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    Met with Sales director, major accounts director and engineering manager in a panel and one on one interviews. I didn't think that is was that difficult, but they were very focused on technology solutions versus business solutions... they were very entrenched in the telco attitude.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me about methods that I used to penetrate strategic accounts.   1 Answer
