    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Acquity Group in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The order went as follows: college event, phone interview, personality test (done at home), personal interview. I was pretty shocked at how informal everyone was. I interviewed with 4 people total: 1 VP, 1 manager, and 2 associates and I was pretty shocked by their lack of interviewing skills. I felt that throughout all 4 interviews I had control over the interview(s) because those interviewing me either: went off on unrelated tangents, didn't manage their time according to HR's schedule, or didn't ask the right questions.

    Associate, Technology Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Acquity Group in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was a long and very elaborate process. Initially the HR kept updating the status regularly, but once the onsite interview was over, they failed to get back if they had a positive decision or not.
    First round was on campus. Where they actually have flash cards and ask you to choose one of them. Each contain a case.
    The one that I picked was on product pricing. They asked me to help a furniture store to brand and sell their products on a website I was designing. They went through my thought process and saw how I did it.
    I was then invited to their office in Chicago for the final round. Long day. Had a bunch of people. It was a round robin fashioned interview where they constantly had you switching rooms. Initial round was with one senior mgmt personnel (completely situation and behavioral round); next was with a current associate (again non-technical and behavioral); third round was technical (simple poker game implementation apart from the fact that the manager was unclear in most of his questions)
    By late noon, HR gave a tour of their office.

    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Acquity Group in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had two phone interviews - one with the recruiter who initially reached out to me through LinkedIn, and one with the hiring director in my division. I then came in for an office interview the next week and met with 5 different interviewers over the course of 2 hours. There was also a short written "test" which is basically to make sure you can write well and put sentences together without glaring grammatical errors.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was probably "Where do you see the biggest opportunity for digital growth in the next 5-10 years?"   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They offered me the very top of my "desired salary" range that I initially gave to the recruiter, which was a 25% increase from my salary at my previous job, so I didn't negotiate although I know it is possible.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    interviewed at Acquity Group in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Within hours of sending any correspondence, I received responses. The hiring staff was friendly and easy to speak to at all times. They scheduled me for phone interview and told me every step of the hiring process. Even though I was not hired, I have to say that applying for a job at Acquity Group was a nice experience thanks to their excellent HR staff.

    I did not make it to the in person interview stage, but be prepared to make a short presentation on "Why Sales? Why Acquity Group? Why you?" Probably to test how well you can confidently use sales skills, to sell yourself. Also I was told to prepare for about a 4 hour day to interview with various members of their staff. It's a rough process, but I feel like if you go in prepared and take advantage of it you'll stand a great chance of being hired.

    The phone interview took around 30 to 45 minutes. Questions were mostly about myself, and then about the company. They asked me if I knew what Acquity Group does and what the position would entail. After answering any questions, the person I spoke with would also discuss my response and help clarify any questions. They also answered all my questions at the end of the interview.

    Interview Questions
    • The phone interview was very standard. Just be able to speak confidently about the role of a Sales Representative at Acquity Group.   View Answer
