Very Easy Interview

Sales Executive Interview

Sales Executive
London, England

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at EMC in October 2013.

Interview Details Initial interview was with the Recruitment team after they spent months hounding me. No indication of the expectation for the meeting, which was conducted by a typical recruiter who knew little about the Industry and read from a sheet! They did know the structure of the organisation which they insisted spending 25 mins of the allotted hour taking me through!
