Senior Account Executive Interview

Senior Account Executive
Chicago, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CareerBuilder in March 2011.

Interview Details – First talk is with a recruiter over the phone, then after passing that screening phone interview with single manager. From there, either in-person with hiring manager or with a group of hiring managers. Typically follow-up in person interview with hiring manager and sometimes with his/her supervisor where final decision is made. B2B Sales experience is focused on, business driven, amount of quota/growth responsible for in previous roles, professional dress and demeanor, overall communication skills, and agility are keyed in on.

Interview Question – If you were a "Big Mac," what part of the sandwich would you be and why? Obviously key here is to focus on the explanation of the answer more than the answer itself as a measure of critical thinking skills.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Not much of a negotiation phase.. comp plan is pretty cut and dry and relcoation was not required, though it can be offered to experienced candidates.

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at CareerBuilder in January 2012.

Negotiation Details – I found that CareerBuilder was very fair and generous with their offerings. I don't think their is much room for negotiation.

Senior Account Executive Interview

Senior Account Executive
Atlanta, GA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CareerBuilder in September 2010.

Interview Details – So far I have only done the first round with the internal recruiter (over the phone). The second round has been scheduled and will be a second phone interview with one of the sales managers. The first one was over an hour and I thought it was a little excessive in length and detail. I think I will decline moving forward as the salary is rather low ($35k) for a "senior" position.

The process took a day - interviewed at CareerBuilder in February 2007.

Interview Details – After applying, i was contacted almost immediately by a recruiter. After a brief phone conversation with her, I was scheduled for an interview with the sales manager under whom I would be working. Following his interview, I met with the director of the group. These were both relatively simple interviews and I was offered a job later that day.
