D1: I think good overall but if I get an offer I probably won't take it. Not really into sales


Any good cases or brain teasers?


Following, any chance you can share the cases?


It was a digital media company and the first part of the interview was a case study. The vp of sales and vp of business analytics have an excel sheet full of sales data for two quarters and they wanted me to cut the data into a few ways to see how the cost, gross margin and profit varies. Also wanted to me to look at how the product lines differ. They gave me an hour to prepare and I presented with them grilling me. They also wanted to know how they could change there sales forecasts people process to make it more accurate And bunch of other questions


Then I just met a bunch of VPs, directors and a SVP. It was a very casual interview and standard after that. Only thing that annoyed me is that they really tried to get me to say what clients I've worked with but I luckily kept shush


How'd it go??

Thanks for sharing! Are you S&O and if so what level are you? I interview for a sales-y position a while back and didn't get in.

Thanks for sharing the experience OP

How have other moms here juggled being pregnant / having a young baby with consulting? Senior ASC / early Manager here and am really struggling to see how this could work. Am feeling almost ready to start trying, but being a working mom is really important to me and I don't know if its possible here. Would it be better to find a different job, work for a while, then try?
