Account Director Interview

Account Director

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at CEB in June 2009.

Interview Details – It was a quick and efficient process. 1 screening by a recruiter. A cognitive test and a personality test. 1 interview by the hiring manager. Offer. I've learned - in retrospect - that CEB has a pretty unique culture, so the testing is important to make sure there is a fit.

Interview Question – Most of the questions - since it wa a sales role - were stories on wins I was most proud of and how I handled difficult customers.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – They low-balled me at first. In the screening call, I had said what my salary and commission expectations were and the recruiter said that was fine/doable. The offer was $15k below the high end of my range and $10k below the low end of the range. I asked that they split the difference on my base salary (add $12,500 to the offer) and they did.
