    I have been working at Gearset full-time

    Pros

    The team as a whole is great. Very smart, means you're constantly learning and developing. Great culture, everyone is very welcoming and friendly.

    Cons

    Some of the usual challenges of working for a start-up. As the team grows it becomes more challenging to maintain the same culture and environment.

    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Cambridge, East of England, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gearset (Cambridge, East of England, England) in December 2018.

    Interview

    I came across Gearset through a recruiter who I had an initial interview with over Skype to assess my suitability. I was then put forward for a first stage interview at Gearsets' Cambridge office.

    I was asked to prepare a 5 minute presentation on what Gearset do in advance, focusing on the comparison of Salesforce orgs using Gearset. I was also asked to do several tasks such as writing a sales email, critiquing a sales email, responding to a live chat and making a mock sales call. They focused on the technical side of my experience and went into detail about my current role in software sales.

    I was subsequently invited to attend a second interview in Cambridge. This was a less technical more competency based interview. They were looking to assess whether I would fit into the company culture and they gave me the chance to ask my questions about Gearset.

    Whilst challenging as expected, my overall interview experience was extremely positive and I was made to feel very welcome by the team at Gearset.
