    I have been working at Reynolds American full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Not many currently looking at what other companies offer. Here are some :
    -Flexible schedule
    -Personal Gas
    -Masters Degree reimbursement
    -Car wash stipend
    -

    Cons

    Plenty of cons;
    -Poorly paid versus the competition
    -Workload of 2017 - Home Office is completely out of touch with the reality in the field.
    -Promotion structure - expect you to put your life on hold for a phone call and 30 days notice to move. No say at all in where you go. They expect your whole family to up and move their life for an average pay increase
    - Promotion process - you are at the mercy of management individuals who may have spent 1 or 2 days with you. Many are reluctant to promote.
    - Company hiring externally when many employees are ready for Promotion.
    - Company cares more about diversity statistics over hiring the right person.
    - Management cannot handle any type of challenging or criticism but expect TMs to take ALL feedback and implement without question.
    - Rigid progression path - not everyone wants to go the route RAI has mapped out. Be flexible not everyone wants to be a DM. Give the opportunities for varied career progression.
    - Technology in the company and given to employees is terrible. The job takes longer daily because of the poor technology. Get it right and spend money on a proper IT department!
    - Your career depends solely on having a good DM or KAM. If you don’t get this you will never get promoted

    Advice to Management

    You have to change the Promotion structure. What is the timeframe and options candidates may have?
    It’s time for so many DMs to go, plenty that are just picking up a pay check and taking a position of somebody who is wanting to progress through the company.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Reynolds American (Winston-Salem, NC (US)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Three panel interviews with an additional presentation component to show skills and professionalism. Presentation should be something you worked on but not confidential information. Decision made fairly quickly. Conversational interview. Did not try and trick you or pressure you during the process.

    Interview Questions

    • Standard questions about how have you influenced something. What roles you played in projects. How do you handle difficult situations. Etc.   Answer Question
