    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at Altria.

    Interview

    I was contacted quite a while after my initial online application. I scheduled an interview and then was told it would be rescheduled. When rescheduling I was notified that the other applicants had "offers from other employers". Which led me to believe that they were leaning toward another applicant before I came in. There was a writing test 30 minutes before the panel interview. The panel was courteous and used the STAR or (competency) interview method. The total interview lasted about 2 1/2 hours. The head of the department was unavailable for the interview, which could weigh heavily in the process. I was contacted about a week later by hr notifying me that they would not be extending an offer.

    • Please give an example of a problem you had to solve and how you solved it. (not difficult at all)   Answer Question

    Lead Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Altria (Richmond, VA (US)) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online and received a call to schedule a telephone interview with an Altria recruiter. Spoke with him several days later, and was then scheduled for a phone interview with two department directors. That call also went well, so I was invited for an on-site interview a few weeks later.
    The in-person interview consisted of two panels of people. Not having experience with panel interviews, I was a little taken aback by the format as it doesn't seem to be an effective way to get a feel for someone. I assumed that there would be a one-on-one discussion with the person who I would be reporting to as well, but there wasn't. Afterwards, I was taken to lunch by a few potential coworkers in the company cafeteria.
    I'm giving a neutral response because my telephone interviews with the recruitment office and department directors were positive experiences. However, the on-site process was very impersonal and required canned rather than thoughtful responses.

    Interview

    An interview process at my school and a meet a greet where I was introduced to a lot of the employees that came from the same university program that I came from.
