    Sales Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Gearset (Cambridge, 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.
