    Neutral Outlook

    I worked at Twinings full-time

    Pros

    Great people, great culture and great brands. I don't think there aren't many places where employees get so much autonomy, or are encouraged and supported to act so entrepreneurially, particularly in a business that's been around for 300 years!

    Cons

    Andover isn't the most central of locations, but the ability to work from home in sales roles is a big plus.

    Advice to Management

    Keep encouraging the team to feedback, and keep acting on that feedback so that your people remain at the heart of the business.

    National Account Manager Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Twinings (Jersey City, NJ) in May 2016.

    Interview

    First was with the recruiter to see if the role could be a fit. Second was with the person that would be my direct manager again to see if there was a personality fit. No tough interview questions there. Third was with the manager's manager again to see if there was a personality fit. No tough interview questions there. Fourth was a video interview with both of the previous interviewers. Two hours of standard, albeit archaic, interview questions (best qualities, weaknesses, type of managers you dislike etc). Fifth was a trip to office for a 3 hour interview with the same 2 people including a case study. The case study was sent a few days in advance with a sample deck that you could manipulate to build a sales story then present. Not difficult to manage if you are currently doing that type of work, but the actual presentation seemed a bit unrealistic to how retailer/manufacturer relationships are in the present. The case study was 30 minutes of the 3 hour period with another round of the old fashioned interview questions (what do you do best, what would you need to be successful, why do you want this job). Sixth interview lasted all day at the office allowing you to interview with multiple different employees from CEO, to VP of Marketing, Catergory Team, HR Team, etc. Standard interview/getting to know you questions and trying to see if you fit. I did not receive an offer and that final piece was handled poorly at best, but I had already determined it wasn't a great fit for me so everything worked out perfectly.
