Company Updates

  • "Anyone who knows me will tell you that I need to stay busy. When I was younger, I worked for a cigarette wholesaler in Barrie, Ontario. I always liked the interaction with the account reps and that led me to apply and start as a Territory Manager in Red Deer, Alberta. After a while, I transferred to the Ontario trade before starting a new role as a Regional Deployment Coordinator. In this role, I take the marketing strategy and make it actionable in the region, as well as feed information back to the Head Office or my Regional Sales Manager on what’s going on in the region. If there are questions about a specific issue, I find the answers so we can build an action plan. There is never a dull moment in my job. It’s fast paced. It’s dynamic. I feel I can make a difference. I think the company is changing the game in the best possible way which makes it even more exciting!"

    I have been working at Imperial Tobacco Canada full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Fast paced. Constantly evolving challenges. Part of a global network that allows exposure to different markets, cultures and business realities. Potential for global careers. Good emphasis on learning and development. Good balance between empowerment and structure. Good talent recognition. Great team culture and leaders that drive and motivate the organization.

    Cons

    Important to drive your own career and seek out opportunities. Self motivation and drive is key to succeed. Very fast paced - exciting for some, less for others.

    Advice to Management

    Recent emphasis on focus has decreased the time spent on peripheral activities/projects and enabled the amplification of our efforts in the areas that matter most.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Imperial Tobacco Canada.

    Interview

    For the interview after the phone interview, one of the two interviewers was late and they seemed unorganized that day for some reason. The interview itself seemed to go well but I was somewhat relieved that I didn't get called back because they didn't really seem to care.

    Interview Questions

    • The question was what I thought the company faced internationally in the next few years, though it wasn't that unexpected.   Answer Question
