Regional Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
No Offer
Neutral Experience
Easy Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cogent Communications (New York, NY) in July 2015.

Interview

Several phone interviews with their head recruiter in DC/Maryland and then met with a gentleman in their New York City branch office, located on Broadway in Bowling Green. Interview wasn't tough, actually WAY TOO easy. He mostly spoke about himself and his experience with the company. Worked their 5 years, recently became a manager (after 2 had left). They are in a nice area, right next to the 4,5 express lines which is great but as professional as they push, they were dressed pretty casual. The place was not kept up. Don't really know if it was really worth it. Got the interview from an internal referral. Unfortunately, I knew a job there was going to be short-lived. This isn't a career job.

I then was scheduled to attend a mixer to meet with the recruiters. There were about twenty other candidates present.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cogent Communications (Miami, FL).

    Interview

    Got contacted by a recruiter to go in for an interview. When I got there I found out they had literally told almost 130 other people to come interview as well!! ...and this was to fill only 5 positions. Terrible hiring/screening method.... This was honestly the worst job interview I have ever been a part of. I sat down in a cubicle with a manager, while there was an open cubicle right next door with another interview going on at the same time. This was pretty awkward. Anyways, the interviewer did a very poor job of really getting to know me and after a couple of minutes he abruptly ended the interview. I realized I must have not been what they were looking for (even though I'm an experienced B2B salesperson) and also the fact they had tons of other potential candidates to go through within the next couple of hours. Their offices are very cheap and they are proud of their low overhead method. The base salary sounded good but probably not a place to stay for the long run.

    Interview

    Went to a social evening evening with a few other candidates and then had a brief bit of one on one time after mingling. Had a second round interview the next day and had an offer within two days. Pretty typical interview that involved a Q&A session where we learned about each other. Very nice and relaxed The professional recruiting staff and managers were really honest in representing the opportunity.
