    Software Sales Director Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at HighWire (Brighton, England) in February 2017.

    Interview

    1. Applied direct.
    2. Telephone interviewed by UK HR
    3. Telephone interview by UK VP
    4. Face to face with UK VP

    Towards the end, the communication was extremely poor. Promises made and never kept. They had someone in line for the role all along, but I was kept hanging on in case that person didn't accept. Suggest another company.
