Professional Services Consultant Interview

Professional Services Consultant

The process took 2 months - interviewed at Active Network.

Interview Details – Working with HR was pleasant, and getting that first interview was fast. Although I was approved for the second and third interviews, but trying to get a confirmation from the manager giving the interview was challenging. Manager was willing to work with me in delaying starting date due to unexpected circumstances. That was a plus.

Interview Question – How would you handle escalation with a client that's not happy with what they were sold?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They said yes to my initial ask, then the manager had to apologize at a later interview after giving a lesser number. Reason was "this (lower offer) is the highest on your job scale"... (even lower than industry average). I took it anyway coz I was ready for a change. Better than nothing.

Market Development Representative Interview

Market Development Representative

I applied online - interviewed at Active Network in February 2014.

Interview Details – First contact w/ firm was phone interview. Very quick and basic, pretty much just a few questions about what you've done in past and why you're interested in job. Then had an in-person interview with 2 people on sales team. Consisted of the standard questions, such as what motivates you, etc etc. Then was asked the following:
-what my biggest accomplishment in life was
-biggest failure
- if I were stranded on a deserted island what 3 things would i want to have

Interview Question – I didn't expect the deserted island question, but I don't feel it was difficult. I was just honest and thoughtful when I answered.   View Answer

Senior Sales Manager Interview

Senior Sales Manager
San Diego, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Active Network in November 2011.

Interview Details – Under a lot of change. New requirements include standardized screening tests (SAT style and psychological). Pretty efficient turn around and resumes do all get read, however submitted. Individual hiring managers conduct interviews with candidates, along with recruiteer and team member interviews.

Interview Question – what do you consider as proper work life balance and how do you achieve it?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Offers do not have much negotiating room. Not difficult per se but a fair offer is not going to get improved upon much. Many managers are flexible about staff working remote and the company supports it.

Event Planner Interview

Event Planner
San Diego, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Active Network in April 2013.

Interview Details – I applied for the job online and was contacted by email after a week or so. Then, I had a short phone interview with an HR rep. After that, an in-person interview was scheduled with one of my direct supervisors. Both of my supervisors were supposed to be there, but one was sick, so I had a phone interview with him a few days later.

The position needed to be filled ASAP, so I filled out the new hire paperwork and started work the Friday of the same week as my first in-person interview.

Interview Question – There really weren't any difficult questions.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I'm an entry-level employee and I was applying for my first "real" job, so I didn't negotiate at all.
