    I worked at Meltwater (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I joined Meltwater brand new to sales having come from a very different background.

    My skills gained in my previous career were recognised and developed and the Managing Director and Sales Manager worked closely with me to hone these in a brand new environment - if you go looking for the development and work hard, you will be rewarded with fast progression and very good money for hitting targets.

    The social side of things is great with 5 aside, team drinks and meals, and closing night celebrations.

    I left to go back to my previous career choice.

    Cons

    Sales was simply not the right career choice for me, and I felt this wasn't made 100% clear/brushed over during the interview. *ENSURE YOU ARE AWARE OF WHAT THE ROLE ENTAILS*

    Your first few months will be tough as you settle in and will be expected to do work in your own time/there isn't enough hours in the work day to complete it, but as mentioned above, hard work is rewarded.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Meltwater (London, England) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I first went to a meet and greet at their offices in Shoreditch. This was an opportunity to network and get noticed. They gave you a short presentation to tell you more about Meltwater, after that you had to talk to members of staff. They got let you know the next day if you were through to the next stage.

    The next stage was a group interview with roughly 12 other people. To begin, the area director gave a more detailed presentation than the one at the meet and greet about the company. Then, we were required to give a short three minute introduction about ourselves and something we were proud of. After everyone had introduced themselves, it was time for a coffee break. This was another opportunity to network. When we returned, we had to deliver a group presentation and then partake in a group debate. Lastly, we had to deliver an elevator pitch about something that we were passionate about.

    The next stage was individual interviews. Unfortunately I did not make it to this stage.
