Account Executive Interview

Account Executive

I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at Bay Area News Group.

Interview Details – Recruiter does intitial phone interview followed by group interview and then a challenging role play. There was no personality testing. Face to face group interview is done w two mgrs. asking situational questions. "Tell me about a time..." "Explain..."

Interview Question – Tell me about a manager you didnt like and why. How did you make it work?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Salaries are low and they will start from the bottom of the approved range. If you dont ask for more you wont get it. They base their salary range on your experience and what you bring to the table. Salary is typically half of the total comp. Ask for a copy of the comp plan before accepting. Although those change often too.

Interviewed at Bay Area News Group

Interview Details – Spoke with internal recruiter. This was a basic introduction and Q/A. After speaking with the internal recruiter, there was a phone interview with the hiring manager. Very detailed in the questions about digital knowledge and consultative approach to selling. After the initial phone interview, there was a face to face with a panel. After the panel interview, there was a role play and that was it.

Interview Question – The role play was challenging. Be consultative!   Answer Question
