Account Executive Interview

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

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)) in March 2018.

Interview

Applied online. My background is a bit non-traditional, so I was sure to include a cover letter, which the recruiter said really helped to connect the dots for him and allowed me to move forward in the interview process. There was a phone screen, which was professional, but warm and extremely transparent (in a good way).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in December 2017.

    Interview

    A Glassdoor recruiter contacted me after I had applied for an AE role online (LinkedIn) to schedule a phone screening. Following the phone screen I was asked to have a second call with Director of Sales. Next round of the interview process was a "role play" presentation/pitch over video conference. You are asked to set up a PPT to present. I presented to two managers. Next round was to meet Sales Managers and Sales Director at office. Received an offer less than one week following the on-site meeting. Each person I met and spoke with through the interview process was extremely friendly and overall very enjoyable to work with.

    Interview

    Recently finished the interview process at Glassdoor and had a great experience. The process was quick, consisting of a initial phone screen, phone interview with Director of Sales, an on-site interview with three different people, and then capped off with a sales pitch/ demo. Overall it lasted about two weeks so I was appreciative of their promptness. James was my recruiting adviser and was very helpful throughout the process — very transparent and communicative.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in May 2018.

    Interview

    After applying to several roles at Glassdoor, I was contacted by a recruiter in Chicago who was very upfront about the AE role and overall compensation package. She asked a few basic questions and then scheduled another interview with the hiring manager. This next interview included a variety of behavioral questions. The third interview is an actual sales pitch, for the Glassdoor offerings. The fourth interview is in person and you can expect to meet with all the sales managers, in addition to the director.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)) in July 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very extensive, 4 rounds of interviews (phone interview, in person interview, sales pitch, final in person interview. I spent a lot of time preparing for each interview by utilizing the resources that the recruiter sent me and doing research of my own. I highly recommend reading through the website and doing research on each person that you're interviewing with. The whole process took about two weeks. Communication throughout the process was top notch, the recruiter contacted me shortly after each step to give me feedback and invite me to the next round.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)).

    Interview

    1st step was a quick phone call with the recruiter to go over the role and a quick review of my background. From there we moved quickly to a face-face interview with 2 team managers who dove into my background further and talked expectations of the role. After that I had to do a mock sales presentation using on of their actual prospects as the 'client' that took about 25 minutes. Final step was to meet with the office director for a much more informal conversation.
