The interview went very well with the two that interviewed me, unfortunately because they were messed over nine months later, they were not in my chain for long.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Essilor of America.

    Interview

    Patience is key. The process for this size of a company is very long. I am going to guess that the reason is due to the amount of applicants. There are a lot of applicants now due to industry changes. A new hire will have to endure a time period of training before getting into the field. Training can be tedious, but important to success. Show tolerance to this in an interview.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Yes...salary is not very negotiable, however, vacation, and sales time frame guarantees are.

    Interview

    This was a typical interview process with typical questions. The interviewer did however seem to be "shooting from the hip" with the interview questions. This gave the interview a natural flow, but may have led to a subjective choice in for the final candidate. One would expect a set list of questions to be asked, but that didn't seem to be the case
