Like leading buyer calls, and all client calls etc? Probably 2-3 years and also at the heavy manager level. Early manager M1 maybe, but I don’t think it’s expected.

Just curious how many interviews did you go on before landing a job? Iv already had 5 different interviews where I make it to the final rounds and they just say they are going a different direction with someone with more experience. I have one that I’m waiting back to hear from and have a second round with Amazon. If I don’t get these I’m debating on if I should read/study leadership books to try and change my approach when answering these questions.
