    Outside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Orleans, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Southern Glazer's Wine & Spirits (New Orleans, LA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I responded to an Indeed ad with my resume and promptly got an email offering a telephone pre-screening interview with a regional recruiting executive. She was very accommodating to my hectic schedule at my current job in finding a mutually beneficial time for the first round of in-person local interviews, so that was greatly appreciated.
