    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Miami, FL
    Anonymous Employee in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at EarthLink in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    After applying online the company recruiter contacted me for a phone interview. It was a 20 min conversation explaining about the company then she asked only why I am looking to leave my current job and why I would like to work for Earthlink. Right after that she e-mail me setting a personal interview with the sales manager. Most of the questions were kind of technical about their products and after that he was trying to scare me or maybe showing how hard is the job. Talking about this is not a 9-5 job, there is a lot of cold calling, rejection and if I don't reach my goal I would be fired in a few months.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Atlanta, GA
    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at EarthLink in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a decent phone screen with the Recruiter. I then made it to a F2F meeting with the Hiring Manager. Much of the time was spent with him talking and he acknowledged that. After I asked him some questions, we agreed that I would work on a 30/60/90 plan for my potential territory. I was to take a few days to work on it and he would send me a list of my potential accounts. I believe that the interview was on a Wednesday and that I would follow up with him by Monday. So...I was definitely moving forward with another conversation with him and that is how we left the interview. Surprisingly, I received an email from their Recruiting department the next day stating that they had filled the position with someone that was more qualified. I couldn't believe it. I wasn't too impressed with the opportunity and wasn't surprised that I wasn't the most qualified. I was shocked at the Hiring Manager's commitment to my moving forward in the evaluation process only to be told otherwise the next day. This was one of the least professional interviews that I've had and would not consider working for or with Earthlink again. If you are in Sales, stay away from Earthlink. I couldn't imagine having to trust them with commissions!

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Brentwood, TN
    Anonymous Employee in Brentwood, TN
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at EarthLink in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    3 interviews, 1 phone and 2 face to face including last with Regional VP. I was told to send my references to the Branch Manager. She never called any of them, and never contacted me with any status. Weeks of e-mails and voicemails went unreturned. I spoke to HR a month later and was informed that an offer was made to another candidate. The management was absolutely classless and no business acumen or courtesy whatsoever.

    Solution Architect Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at EarthLink in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the company recruiter. The first interview was with the hiring manager. He explained the business and how EarthLink was expanding from the initial ISP function. We also talked about what kind of skills they were looking for and how I could meet the job requirements. Next, I had a second phone screen with a manager in a different group. That went well. Finally, they wanted me to meet face-to-face with the Regional Director who was in town for another meeting. We determined that I did not have all of the skills and background that he thought was needed to be successful. It was not a surprise to learn that they would not move forward. Even so it was a positive experience.
