Advice to Management
Keep up the hard work.
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Wind River.
There was a phone screening with a recruiter, followed by three on-site interviews, one with the hiring manager, then the director of sales, followed by the VP of sales. The initial interview with the hiring manager was rather easy as she seemed mostly interested in my ability to fit in with the team.
The director was much more traditionally sales oriented - "sell me this pen" kind of interview. Key thing here is to focus on what he (the customer) wants rather than trying to convince him how awesome the pen (your product) is.
The final interview was the most challenging. The VP actively challenged many of my answers and wasn't shy about saying if he thought an answer wasn't a good one. He did however offer lots of good feedback and later told me he was impressed with my ability to answer tough questions.
