    Digital Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tallahassee, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tallahassee, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dex One in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    The interview process started with a phone interview. Lasted about an hour. After that a Skype interview was conducted. The worst part about this is that the interviewer did not show himself, that was very strange and uncomfortale and the skype part was not necessary. The questions were scripted and the interview lasted about an hour. The 3rd interview was a ride along with the sales manager. This part was very valuable since it really gave a good indication of what the job was going to be like.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Dex One.

    Interview Details

    Via phone. Brief. If I had met with the manager who interviewed me face to face, I would not have taken the position. Not only did he not provide much information regarding the position he failed to mention that I would be in the field and away from home for more than 8 months per year. He did not give any information other than to state he had finally found something he could sell.

    Interview Questions
    • None. It appeared that this manager has a higher turn over than most and was desperate so if you could provide the necessary documents and pass the background, you were hired.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    none, rushed to class

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lombard, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lombard, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Dex One in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Very disorganized and deceptive recruiting process. Main outsourced recruiter for the Chicagoland (Lombard) office is Accolo, who outsources recruiting to other agencies. Company still going through restructuring after bankruptcy & downsizing from 2010 - 2011. Wasted 3 days interviewing for a falsely advertised position.

    Interview Questions
    • Thought the company was trying to shake the Yellow Pages image, but there is a large emphasis on selling print advertizing in the phone book, because the company makes a larger margin on these products. Can you realistically sell print ads in phone books to company's nowadays as more and more companies are focusing on digital advertising to curb costs?   View Answer
    Reasons for Declining

    Cited a compensation range of $32K - $67K, depending on experience. I fall in the higher skilled bucket and made it through all 3 interview rounds. Was made an offer for $32K which I declined. They're trying to buy cheap labor irrespective of experience or skill level.

    Deceptive advertising to lure high quality candidates to fill low-end sales positions. Exaggeration of benefits.
