    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berea, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berea, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Equity Trust Company in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    This is NOT a true Senior Account Executive outside sales position. It is a 100% phone sales (telemarketing) job. Their job ads placed on online job boards are very misleading. When I asked them about why they listed the position in such a deceptive fashion, I was told that they want a "Higher caliber of sales rep". I was disgusted that I took time out of my busy day to attend an interview for a position that was intentionally misrepresented in order to attract more experienced sales candidates. Additionally, the base salary is a small hourly wage that no true Senior Account Exec would ever find acceptable. As a Senior Account Executive, I have always had a decent base salary, not a small hourly wage. This job is much more appropriate for someone just beginning a sales career. Perhaps, a new college grad would be better suited for this role, but not anyone with more than a couple of years of corporate sales experience. However, based on how dishonest they are with their recruiting practices, I would never fully trust them as my employer.

    Interview Questions
    • No difficult questions. Not much of an interview, really. Mostly chit-chat.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Job posting was misleading... totally ALL phone sales, NOT outside sales. Low base pay. Felt like I was being lied to about income potential of the position.

    Customer Service Team Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berea, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Berea, OH
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Equity Trust Company in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by email at first to provide times during which I would be available for a phone interview. The position for which I applied was part of the operations team. On the phone, the HR representative and I discussed salary expectations, previous employment experiences, and the opportunity to be a part of the sales and/or operations team for the company.

    I received a 1:1 interview after the phone interview. The individual with whom I met was truthful, though not very professional in demeanor. The phone interview quickly became null, as the position we discussed in the 1:1 interview was for that of a customer service representative for the company's call center. The salary expectations went out the window. I soon came to find out that the new-hire's were being hired in at a rate that was higher than that of the individuals who trained us. I was part of a new-hire team with approximately 12-15 others who also had a skewed understanding of what we were in for.
