    Sales Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ChannelAdvisor (Morrisville, NC) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Spent a maximum of 20 minutes on both the HR screen and the first discussion with management Focus of the conversations were on my ability to cold call and state value from the first touch - Definitely not looking for relationship-based sales people. I shifted to 'Hunter Mode' and breezed by their basic questions. Very easy interview process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ChannelAdvisor.

    Interview

    Applied via their website and was contacted by a recruiter within the company. I had a brief phone interview with the recruiter and later a member of the team. During the phone interviews, it was clear that I more than met the requirements and needs of the position. I was invited in for a face to face interview. The staff were unenthusiastic, disengaged and had a negative attitude throughout the entire interview. There were no in depth technical questions and nothing substantive in terms of trying to determine technical ability.

    Interview

    Applied online, had a friend currently working there as referrer. The recruiting team is very responsive and professional. Because it is a intern position, interview questions are relatively easy. Two question that I can remember, one is how to invert a string; the other one is how to find the first 20 largest numbers in a array.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at ChannelAdvisor (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call about 2 days later. They were very nice and professional. The first interview was normal. They asked general question and it took around 30 minutes. I was then asked to interview with a hiring manager. He turned out to be awesome! We spoke about the company and the career path provided. After that I was asked to come in for a face to face interview. There I met with 5 people. The process from 9am to noon. It was long, but all the mangers were great and you could tell they really loved their jobs. Great process!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at ChannelAdvisor (Seattle, WA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    ChannelAdvisors ripped me off for $500! They tried to rip me off for $1000! Stay Away! I did two phone interviews, then I was invited to fly down for a final round of interviews. First red flag was that I was asked to buy my own plane tickets, for which they assured me I would be reimbursed at the end of the month. As it turned out, I fell sick the day of my interviews and THEY REQUESTED that we reschedule. So I agreed, but it took them 2 months to schedule the next meeting. During this time they informed me that they wouldn't reimburse my plane tickets UNTIL AFTER I CAME FOR AN INTERVIEW. Who does this? I had bought expensive ($1000), non-reimbursable plane tickets at the last moment, because that is when I was told to buy them. I could've bought even more expensive reimbursable plane tickets, but I didn't think that would be necessary - my big mistake. Ultimately I decided I didn't want to work for a company that treated new hire candidates this way - imagine how they would treat me as an actual employee!

    Interview Questions

    • ChannelAdvisors refused to reimburse me for the plane ticket when i asked them to, finally they agreed to pay for half of it, but only after their HR admin had a nervous breakdown on the phone with me and accused me of "threatening her". So now I've got a useless travel voucher I'll never use and I'm $500 in the hole for agreeing to meet with this company. All in all the experience was PSYCHO with this company, borderline illegal, and they clearly showed their stripes in terms of how much they value potential candidates and by extension, employees.   Answer Question

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at ChannelAdvisor.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted and interviewed by HR. Then about 2 weeks later I was interviewed by 4 employees for about 2 hours. About half of the interview was what I expected; talking about past experiences, how I solved problems, and significant accomplishments. The other half was not really what I expected and was a series of questions asking me to regurgitate textbook definitions about software development. To me this indicated the lack of interviewing experience/intelligence of the individuals conducting the interview. Everything I read about the organization indicated that they were a talented group of software developers so I was really expecting more conceptual based questions. If had known I was going to be asked to provide textbook definitions I would have spent the previous week memorizing them, which would only serve to prove that I can memorize things. Not too impressed even if there had been an offer I wold not have taken it.
