    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CityGrid Media.

    Interview Details

    First interview was a phone interview to qualify experience with monthly quotas. Did three subsequent interviews on site, and I was required to submit an email pitch to "close" on why I should be hired. Many of the questions were redundant dragging out a process that should have concluded much sooner than it did.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at CityGrid Media in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Recruiting process was painfully easy, they could however be more honest about the current morale and business with prospective new hires. The interview process I found to be engaging, direct, and very much a two way street.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    The process took 1 week - interviewed at CityGrid Media in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with Technical Recruiter. It was a discussion about my resume. Then I had a skype interview with one of the engineers. He asked me if I knew any testing frameworks. Then discussed about a project that I had worked on. Then asked me the logic for finding 2nd largest element from an array. Asked about grep command.
    After that I had 4 interviews in their office. They asked a few questions related to testing. Given a sum and a number, find a number from the array such that this number and given number add up to the sum.
    I am still waiting for them to get back to me with a definite answer. I know they are not gonna hire me but I am in touch with the recruiters for an answer.

    Inside Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in West Hollywood, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 days - interviewed at CityGrid Media in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied online, was contacted by their internal HR, and proceeded with a screening interview. Questions were mostly regarding my resume.

    2nd interview was at the West Hollywood office with the direct supervisor, alongside a sales director. The questions were very targeted towards their specific market, so decent research on their product, positioning, and history will definitely be helpful. They want to know and prove you've done your homework.

    Outside Sales Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Dallas, TX
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days - interviewed at CityGrid Media in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    Telephoned interview with a recruiter to see if their is any common interest or a match. Then a face to face with a sales manager. They do a complete interview cover everything about you as a salesperson. Do not explain enough about their opportunity. I know at least 10 people who have interviews and did not get hired. These people were #1 sales rep with the two biggest online advertising companies around yet did not get hired. I am not sure what Citygrid is looking for maybe a certain type of look or something, because its clearly not seasoned sales people. I would not recommend anyone to this company for an interview very snobbish!
