    Sales Engineer Interview

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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Eloqua in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    My experience went pretty fast in comparison to others I've spoken with. There was one serious miscommunication between the (contract) recruiter and the hiring director that could have derailed the process, but it all worked out in the end.

    At Eloqua there's a lot of talk about tracking digital activity. Yes, they can track you, so make sure you can demonstrate that you've evaluated the company carefully.

    Interview Questions
    • The presentation. They intentionally provide a very broad topic and leave you on your own to come up with how you'll tackle it. Not much unlike other Sales Engineering positions though.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very easy! Background check took a while but otherwise it sent smoothly.

    Product Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Eloqua in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I found the job that I was interested in via LinkedIN. Given what I know about the company, I thought I should apply. Combing through my network,I discovered that one of my former co-workers recently got a job there. I asked him to submit my resume. The recruiting coordinator forwarded my resume to the recruiter who contacted my via e-Mail. At that point, it took a while for me to connect with him -- after a number of e-Mails and calls, I finally managed to reach him to schedule a time/date for a discussion.

    I should have realized that when he was late that this was not a good sign. He finally called me and was beyond unprofessional. He raced through the questions at a furious pace and almost seemed combative when I answered them. At the end of the discussion, he said he'd forward my information to the hiring manager and did not hear anything back. I decided to follow up where I got my rejection e-Mail.

    While the individuals inside the company may be good, this recruiter was extremely disappointing. Perhaps I should have leveraged my former co-worker and go to the hiring manager directly since this individual clearly didn't want to deal with me.

    Regional Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vienna, VA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Vienna, VA
    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Eloqua in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    1) You will be contacted by HR to vet you. 2)They will then set up the initial call with the Sales Director. 3) You will meet with him in person, where he will give you background and tell you more about the company. He will also give you more information about the presentation that you will have to make in front of the group. Typically this will include the Regional Director and a RVP, with 2 of your prospective colleagues. They expect you to be able to sell Eloqua without even being able to see it. All in all, it's pretty ridiculous to expect someone to come in and be able to sell a product that they have never even seen.

    Account Executive Interview

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

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Eloqua in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    The Hiring Mgr would not do a preliminary phone screen, always a bad sign. The interview was straight forward, lasted an hour, no difficult questions. A bit cowardly though because she thought the interview went well, smiled the entire way, agreed that I'd be a good fit, but when it came to follow-up one week later, I was taken out of consideration. There is no problem with not making the cut, but I do consider it an issue when people are dishonest. Advice- politely request a *sincere* indication if we are moving forward so that we do not collectively waste each others time.

    Product Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Eloqua in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    I initially applied to Eloqua through LinkedIn and received a phone call from a recruiter the next day. The phone call lasted approximately 15 minutes at which point a three stage interview was scheduled and a list of questions to prepare for was sent. Upon arriving for my interview, I was escorted into a small meeting room where I awaited the recruiter. After about 30 minutes the HR representative entered and asked a number of scenario based questions. After answering each question the recruiter corrected me and rephrased my answer to fit the Eloqua template. The second stage of the interview was intended to be with management, however, after waiting patiently for over 30 minutes the HR representative re-entered the room and informed me they were busy in meeting and that we would proceed to the technical component of the interview. In this portion of the interview I was met by two member of the IT team and was asked a number of questions about my work experience etc. From here they provided me with a lengthy document regarding Eloqua’s product to study and become familiar with in 10 minutes before an evaluation in the form of a mock phone call was administered. Unfortunately, I was unable to successfully complete the evaluation and I was informed that the HR rep would let me know how the company would proceed. The interview lasted approximately 3 hours. This was several months ago now and no communication was ever sent. Thankfully, I received an offer from an established company for a better position.

    SMB Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    The recruiter was upfront about the scope of and compensation for the position as well as the work environment. After a screening interview over the phone, I progressed to an on-site interview with the sales director. The odd part was that he wasn't available and I was interviewed by his counterpart. The interview wasn't difficult and seemed almost perfunctory. The director then left the room to get his VP to participate in the interview. Five minutes later, a sales rep comes into the room explaining that the VP wasn't available and the director had another meeting. The sales rep asked more insightful questions than the sales director. The interview concluded abruptly as the rep had a pending conference call to attend. The whole experience had a disjointed feel to it.

    Sales Executive Interview

    Interview Details

    Just like the other person posted about having to fill out a "profile" questionnaire which takes an hour to fill out by the way, I had an in person scheduled to speak to the RVP's. Evidently, once they saw the output of my results they decided to cancel my interview. I saw the results and they were incredibly inaccurate about my character among other things. Seriously? You base your decision on analytic data and are that impersonal and rude to not even meet in person? They did me a favor. I would not want to work with an organization who treats prospective employees that way. Next....
