Associate Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL (US)
No Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)) in May 2016.

Interview

I applied for an entry level position for the training, and to grow my already existing skills.

1.) I had initial interview with a recruiter who was nice, and easy to communicate with. They were knowledgeable and seemed like they genuinely wanted me to move forward. I was asked general screening questions about my past experiences, career outlook, and personal hobbies.

2.) My second interview was with the hiring manager. They were also very easy to talk to, and asked me a lot of the similar questions. After describing myself and my career goals I was invited to attend a meet and greet at a restaurant in downtown Chicago.

3.) When I arrived to the meet and greet there were quite a few people there. It was a mix of Glassdoor employees and candidates. It was an opportunity to get to know the employees, ask questions, and for them to basically interview you throughout the process. It was a very stressful process to walk in there alone and speak with 40+ people that were judging you the entire time. Several other candidates mentioned the same thing.

4.) After clearing the previous 3 interviews, I was invited to give a sales pitch. The sales pitch was given through an online meeting platform, where I led a presentation to three employees who role played as a client company. I gave my best shot, but they hard stop you at about 20 minutes..so if they ask too many questions you have to cut them off to move forward. I did not and had to rush to finish my presentation. They will ask you questions, and you must provide solutions to their business issues, then close on a new contract by up-selling.

5.) One week after the sales pitch I received a phone call from the recruiter stating that they did not want to move forward because I did not have enough sales experience, which really annoyed me considering I applied for the position because I didn't have a lot of experience. I communicated this EVERY interview I had, but they continued to move me forward. The process was very time consuming and stressful, which turned out to be a waste of time.

In conclusion: They said my skills in all areas were very strong except for my sales closing skills, which to me sounds like I'm a perfect candidate for the entry-level position. Beware..they will move you forward even if you aren't a good fit.

We understand that interviewing for Sales at Glassdoor is not the easiest. Not to mention, with our growing presence in Chicago, we’re having to get a bit creative with how we get to know you.

In fact, it looks like you moved forward in the process from there; a true compliment to your skills and potential.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Throughout the course of the interview process I had a total of 4 interviews. Two phone interviews, a Skype interview, and a mock sales pitch. Everyone who I spoke with was intuitive and incredibly helpful. The whole process felt more like a conversation rather than an interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)) in September 2015.

    Interview

    First was a Screening call by an internal recruiter. After the first call, a Skype interview with 3 current managers took place. After making it to the next round, a 30 minute sales pitch that was presented via GoToMeeting with 3 individuals on the call (kind of like a role play scenario). Finally, a call with Director to seal the deal!
