Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
Application Details

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Cision in March 2014.

Interview Details

I had a phone interview with a recruiter. Then an HR person in Chicago. TheInterview question were standard like any other sales position. The following week I went in for an interview.When I showed up at the office the reception wasn't there to let me in. I called the company but no one was answering. I pounded on the door for about 15 mins(not exaggerating), finally someone let me in. I met 2 different sales managers. The first one seem uninterested from second 1 and seemed like he didn't even like the company from his excitement level. The next Manager had been with the company much longer. He was a nice guy and we had a good conversation. All are standard sales question. Mainly they just want to talk about yourself and hear you ask the write questions. They also want to see that you are excited about what the company is doing. Have questions about where they are heading.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Cision in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter called from Chicago from seeing my LinkedIn profile. Phone interview first, then in person interview (Sales Manager), then second in person interview (President). A lot of standard sales questions (sales experience & behavioural), but I found that the job was oversold in terms of earning potential. I think they look for someone who is a culture fit as much as they look at your previous experience/requirements.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cision in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I already know the Cision monitoring products, due to working in Operations for 14 years and knew I had probably run out of "lateral" moves within this department. In order to improve my pay scale I applied for a Client Services position of Account Manager. During the initial interview I found out that I would have a four hour commute each day, so I withdrew my application.
