Brand Sales Specialist Interview

Anonymous Employee

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Arrow Electronics in January 2011.

Interview Details Arrow has a formal interview process within their ECS group. I was interviewed by the hiring manager, then their manager, then sent to 2 other directors to interview. I have heard now they are doing phone interviews where 3 or 4 executives interview at one time and ask specific questions around situations.

Interview Question – How did you handle a situation where you were asked to do something unethical but that would help your team?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes - we went back and forth one time.

Senior Financial Analyst Interview

Interviewed at Arrow Electronics

Interview Details Interviewed with both a Sr. Manager, Finance and Director, Finance. Pretty positive experience. They were most concerned with how I would interact with the internal customers. Communication styles best utilized/most effective were also talking points.

Interview Question – None too off base. Wanted to inquire about situations where technical skills were utilized in conjuction with job requirements and also how negotiating with internal customers was handled (strong personalities, etc.).   Answer Question

Easy Interview

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Arrow Electronics in August 2010.

Interview Details I was currently working for a competitor of Arrow's. They sought me out and promised a large increase in pay and territory. Initial interview was completed at a Starbucks with general manager. Very laid back. Second interview was with the Engineering manager. Much more professional and intense. Questions were more difficult and less of a friendly atmosphere. There were a total of 4 interviews before the offer came but the overall feeling was they were trying to woo me and sell me on coming to work for them.

Interview Question – Describe the most difficult person you have ever worked for and why.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – easy, I pretty much got exactly what I had asked for

Technology Business Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Arrow Electronics.

Interview Details Interview experience was good. The hiring mgr has a lot of experience and wants to manage /introduce change to their overall process. The team made me feel like it would be a good place to work at.

Reason for Declining – Benefits are avg- below avg. Salary offered after negotiations was below industry avg.

HR stopped communicating after negotiations started.

Even though I qualified for a higher position they tried to convince me to accept a lower title.
