Technical Account Manager

Being a woman in tech, I only recently started advocating for myself at work about advancement opportunities. Because of this I wanted to ask this question to my male counterparts. When you have 1:1's with your direct reports and talk about career growth / aspirations what is your managers’ response typically? I’d like to gauge how my experience (negative) differs from others. For instance are you met with blockades, enthusiasm, dread, etc?

  1. Customer Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Manchester, England
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Auto Trader UK (Manchester, England) in May 2022


    Interview was 2 stages, video call followed by face to face. Interviews were very enjoyable and interviewers max me feel at ease.

    Face to face interview started with an office walk around which was a great icebreaker, putting me at ease. This was followed by some general questions regarding transferable experience and motivations for applying.

    Next was a round of examples where I had used their core values in previous work. Quickly followed by a role play activity where I had to play the role of an onboarding specialist. I was given a brief and 15 minutes to prepare for this. The activity was enjoyable and really allowed me to delve into the role.

    Following the interview I was told I would hear within a week. Two weeks later I was told I hadn’t been successful but they thought my skills were suited to a different role within the business. After replying to this email to say I was interested I have never had a reply, despite multiple follow up emails.

    In addition to this, I was told I would have verbal feedback regarding the application. Again I have never received a call, even after providing dates I was available.

    Overall I would say that Auto Trader’s interview process was thorough and enjoyable. The only thing letting them down is the recruitment communication and the poor response rate from them.

    I would still like to receive feedback regarding my application journey and would be keen to find out more about the alternative role I was notified of. However as of right now I am still awaiting a response from Auto Trader, some two weeks after agreeing dates I was available for a call.
