    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Hill's Pet Nutrition.

    Interview

    The overall interview process is pretty standard. I submitted my application online and was notified via email regarding setting up a date and time for a phone interview. The phone interview was with the same person who emailed me. This lasted about 45 minutes. The rep had me go through my interview and highlight some of my experience as well as why I left positions. She would follow up with other work questions. She asked me why I wanted to work for this company, why I thought I was the best choice for the position, did I have outside sales experience, had I ever been involved in an unethical dilemma at work and what did I do, etc. This interview was pretty comfortable and she was so nice and easy to talk to. Be sure to ask for a face to face interview at the end! I did this and she immediately set me up a time for a video interview.

    The video interview was the next week with 2 district managers including the one who was over the territory of this position. This interview lasted about 45 minutes. The manager over the territory facilitated the interview and did a wonderful job explaining the position and the territory, what was expected, broke it down in account categories. This was very helpful as you knew exactly what the job was like. After this overview, they asked me to go into explaining my resume. After this was the situational based questions they wanted answered in the STAR format. There were about 8 of these. After these, they asked me if I had any questions. Again, ask for a face to face interview at the end! I did this along with asking was the process and next step was. She told me that they were going to get together and review all of the candidates then narrow it down to 2 who would then be flown out to Kansas City for an interview with the Director and head of HR. She said they would contact me if I moved on to the next round or I would receive an email stating that I was not. Overall, they were pretty easy to talk to. I did not get a sense what type of impression I had made. I am still waiting to hear back.

    Some questions that I asked:

    Can you tell me the history of the position and how have the numbers been?

    What do you see as the potential of the territory and position going forward?

    Where is the majority of the business located within the territory?

    For the people who have been in this position in the past who have done very well, what are 2 or 3 traits they had compared to those who just did average in the position?
