    Inside-Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Lenovo in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by 4 managers. The first interview was awful. This guy had a script in front of him and was reading out scenarios and not actually listening to my answers. He then asked me about my personal life and other things that were irrelevant to the job itself. (He was the one who hired me.) The other three were much more personable and had good questions. The office was quiet with cubicles and lots of windows.

    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lenovo in April 2008.

    Interview Details

    Interview process consisted of a phone interview. It was a pretty easy interview asking about your prior work experience and basic questions about the role applied for. After this was a panel interview consisting of a team lead and a manager. Here you had a more in depth conversation about work history and more questions about actual position.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Lenovo.

    Interview Details

    Literally ----- THE EASIEST JOB INTERVIEW EVER. It was 15 minutes long. If you have a pulse and can look someone in the eyes you can get the job.

    Heads up though... the interviewers are very unfriendly and give you NO insight in to how you did. You will typically hear back the same day.

    Project Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Lenovo in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by a friend who had been with the company for some years. The referral lead to an initial phone interview with the recruiter at CTG to discuss possible openings. I had an Inside Sales interview with another CTG recruiter onsite, which was very brief. When the recruiter called to let me know whey were moving forward with other candidates, she asked if I would be interested in other openings - specifically the Project Manager role. I agreed, and soon thereafter, received a confirmation email to meet with the Manager and team. The interview was lengthy, meeting with the Manager of the division, then two other PMs, then the rest of the team. They asked general questions, nothing our of the ordinary.

    Interview Questions
    • As someone who hasn't worked in the technology field before, what should we hire you? Explain a difficult project assigned to you from beginning to end. And the like.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Because it was considered an entry-level position through a CTG contract, there really was not room for negotiation. I was not working when I received the offer, so I gladly accepted. They offer two salary options with benefits (BCBS v. Tranamerica) which are relatively low salaries; however, there is so much opportunity for growth within the company - and both include vacation/time off, 401k, etc.

    Received a email from a recruiter, set up a phone interview. Waited 2 months for a face to face interview. In the face to face it was a 3 round process which was very different from what I have experienced in the past. Consisted of group interview, 1 on 1, and a presentation given to managers.
