    Commercial Sales Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Tableau Software (London, England) in April 2015.


    the first stages are very unstructured. met mostly great people, but you can tell the company is growing quickly and, internally, struggling to keep up. I had to chase them to follow up and prep the different stages. very limited feedback after the process.
    Tableau have you meet many people, potential peers, direct reports and then VP Emea of sales and head of sales ops. this all lasted almost a month. final stage is a role play which includes a product demo and a "strategy session" where you present your approach to the role and managing a team. there is lots of info to prep the role play. expectations for the strategy session felt very vague.
