    Account Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at News America Marketing.

    Interview Details

    Started at a career fair with my University. First interview was on campus. It was 2, 30 minute interviews with one HR rep and one sales rep. Those were fairly basic and straight forward, relating your resume to sales. Second interview, I was flown to NYC where there was a reception, cocktail hour and dinner. The next day there were 7, 30 minute interviews with a variety of people in the company. Most questions based around, "why sales?". My best advice would be to try to relate to each interviewer on a personal level so they remember you because it is a long day.

    First round interview will consist of two back to back interviews, followed by an information session and two more back to back interviews, one of which with HR, if you make second rounds. Final round interviews are in NYC with 60+ other candidates. It's an intense process, not so much from the interviewing, but more due to the extent of traveling and long days in a short period of time. You will have seven 40 min interviews with Senior VP's, some of which are quite enjoyable to talk to others are much more formal it depends.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at News America Marketing.

    Interview Details

    I was approached at a university career fair. There was a info session the night before the interview led by the two people who were going to conduct the interviews. One was in HR and the other was a Sales Manager. The info session was extremely informative. The next day there were two 30 minute interviews. One with each of the two News America Employees. It was a very sales driven interview. Make sure you talk about why you want to be in sales. Besides being very sales focused, it was a pretty standard interview. Be confident!

    Had an initial in person interview on my college campus. There were two 30 minute interviews. The person who interviewed me was also recruiting at the career fair at my school in the fall. The interview was challenging at times, due to the unexpected questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at News America Marketing.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to this position through a career fair and was very excited about the company and the growth projection for future employees. However, they are very strict as to what they are looking for in terms of resume presentation. As a student in a creative field and recruited under those pretenses, I found it very concerning that after contacting me and conducting a first round interview, I was asked to completely redo my resume to match the company's expectations.

    Interview Questions
    • Why would you be successful in sales? What experience do you have that relates to sales? What motivated you to apply to News America? How do you manage your time? How do you deal with rejection? What motivates you?   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at News America Marketing in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Met my first contact at a career fair the spring before I graduated. They were pretty friendly and seemed to know what they were talking about. They told me to get into contact with them, which I did. The person in charge if the interviews then set one up with me. The phone interview went very well, standard questions. I did get the feeling that they were looking for someone more sales oriented. The interview was very pleasant, I followed up once or twice and never heard back from them.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at News America Marketing.

    Interview Details

    I got an offer for an interview after talking with a rep at my college's career fair. They held a very informative O&A night before the interviews started. On interview day you meet with a Sales Rep and an HR rep for about 30 min each. This was just for first round.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a lot of questions about sales. Why do you want to be in sales? What experience do you have in sales? Why does sales motivate you? If you are only sort of interested in sales, these can be hard questions to answer.   Answer Question
