Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rochester, NY

Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at EarthLink.

Interview Details

First I was contacted by a recruiter. That part was an easy 15 min conversation. Then I met with the hiring manager. It felt like someone was reading from a script during the interview process. Then I was hired. They also did no drug test, which seemed odd.

Interview Questions
  • There were non really. Trying to get a job working fast food probably has more difficult questions. This within itself sent a lot of red flags.   View Answer
Negotiation Details
It had taken 2-3 weeks. They dramatically tried to low ball me. But, I would recommend to anyone to stick to their guns while negotiating salary here. Management are desperate to get good talent and they have lack great negotiating skills.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 daysinterviewed at EarthLink in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    After applying online the company recruiter contacted me for a phone interview. It was a 20 min conversation explaining about the company then she asked only why I am looking to leave my current job and why I would like to work for Earthlink. Right after that she e-mail me setting a personal interview with the sales manager. Most of the questions were kind of technical about their products and after that he was trying to scare me or maybe showing how hard is the job. Talking about this is not a 9-5 job, there is a lot of cold calling, rejection and if I don't reach my goal I would be fired in a few months.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at EarthLink in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had a decent phone screen with the Recruiter. I then made it to a F2F meeting with the Hiring Manager. Much of the time was spent with him talking and he acknowledged that. After I asked him some questions, we agreed that I would work on a 30/60/90 plan for my potential territory. I was to take a few days to work on it and he would send me a list of my potential accounts. I believe that the interview was on a Wednesday and that I would follow up with him by Monday. So...I was definitely moving forward with another conversation with him and that is how we left the interview. Surprisingly, I received an email from their Recruiting department the next day stating that they had filled the position with someone that was more qualified. I couldn't believe it. I wasn't too impressed with the opportunity and wasn't surprised that I wasn't the most qualified. I was shocked at the Hiring Manager's commitment to my moving forward in the evaluation process only to be told otherwise the next day. This was one of the least professional interviews that I've had and would not consider working for or with Earthlink again. If you are in Sales, stay away from Earthlink. I couldn't imagine having to trust them with commissions!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at EarthLink in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    3 interviews, 1 phone and 2 face to face including last with Regional VP. I was told to send my references to the Branch Manager. She never called any of them, and never contacted me with any status. Weeks of e-mails and voicemails went unreturned. I spoke to HR a month later and was informed that an offer was made to another candidate. The management was absolutely classless and no business acumen or courtesy whatsoever.

    Interview Details

    If you're sure actually want to work for this company (I think you should just walk away) make sure you actually know about the company and what they do. Three interviews, HR, hiring manager, and sales manager. General sales and experience questions. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at EarthLink in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had a lot of situational questions. This is a job where you have to create your own business, they have to make sure you know how to do that. SO have a good 30-60-90 day plan ready as soon as you understand the position enough. How do you run organize and run you day? How have you meet a challenge in the past, give specific examples. What is your biggest fault?
