    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    Pretty simple, was referred in, phone interview with recruiter, 1:1 interview with manager. Everything went very quickly after that, background check, application online, negotiation and that was that. Overall it was pleasant experience and not daunting whatsoever. If you know what you are doing you can easily make a good impression. Just be aware that when you start and are in the field your on your own and the learning curve is a bit longer than other companies they compete with.

    Software Engineer Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Monster Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    The interview lasted about 2.5 hours. There were about 8 people interviewing at the same time. As a group, we were greeted by Mike, who was very nice and helped make a relatively stressful process seem less daunting. He discussed the company for a bit and answered questions. Engineers came in and the VP(?) came to talk to us more about Monster. After that we each were paired with two engineers who interviewed us separately. It was more of a conversation about past experiences than a test of skills--as far as interviews go it was not bad at all. There were no curveballs. After some initial awkwardness on my part I think it developed into a pretty nice conversation. Overall it was a good experience.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing was too bad--just be prepared to talk about what you've done in class and outside of class, and expect questions about what you have put on your resume.   Answer Question

    Telesales Account Manager II Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Weston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Monster Worldwide in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    I came in through a recruiter. I had applied for a management position and she suggested I apply for the Telesales Account Manager II position. Once she got me in, the process was very fast and organized, which really made me want to come work for Monster.

    One phone interview with an internal recruiter, one in person interview with two Regional Sales Managers, and then a third interview on the same visit with the Director of Sales. Rather than a typical interview, these were more friendly chats where we talked about the wild world of recruitment advertising. I got a writing assignment to complete at home, turned it in, and received an offer very quickly.

    My interest in the position was really sealed by the friendly and organized interview process.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were easy. Like tell me a time when you had a customer do this or that.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    I read in other reviews I would not be able to negotiate, so I committed a traditional faux pas and brought it up in my first (and only) interview with the Sales Director. I don't think it hurt and the offer seemed reasonable.

    Software Engineering Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Monster Worldwide in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied summer intern position online in Feb 2014, got interview request email after about three weeks, then a phone interview and a onsite interview during the next week. Generally speaking, experience is great, people there are friendly and nice. There are not any hard interview questions (technical) in the interview. Got offer from HR in the next day.

    Although they didn't ask any hard technical questions, you 'd better still get preparation. For Software Engineering, being familiar with advanced/ data structure, algorithm(all kinds of sorting), OOD and coding techniques are fundamental. Don't be nervous if you dont know answer of questions, that's how interview should be. Just express yourself- let them know how you solve hard problems.

    Application Details

    interviewed at Monster Worldwide in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview process was relatively easy and simple. I applied online through my university's career website and received a phone call about a week later. The phone interview lasted around 10-15 minutes and an on site interview was scheduled for the following week. At the on site interview I talked with the manager of the product management department as well as the other department managers that I would be working with. Overall, all of the managers I talked to asked questions about past working and class room experiences.

    Interview Questions
    • Asked how I would find and collect information on a target market with no monetary resources -- not too difficult of a question, just required knowledge and experience using data and information available to the public   Answer Question
