    Inside Sales Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Costa Mesa, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Experian (Costa Mesa, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for the inside sales position online on May 5th. Literally got a phone call the next day from the recruiter. She asked me about my background, and we went through my resume. She felt like I was a good candidate for the position and set up a phone interview with the Senior Inside Sales Manager the next day.

     I talked to the manager on the phone, and learned more about the position, got a chance to ask questions, and show I did research on the company. He asked me in particular about my sales experience. He felt I would be a good fit and told me he would like for me to have a face-to-face interview with his colleague (I live in California, but the position is in Schaumburg, Illinois)

    The face-to-face was scheduled a week later. I got a tour of the Costa Mesa Campus from the recruiter, we sat down and talked about my background again. I talked to her for about half an hour. Later, I had a chance to meet with the Sales Director, and talk to him for about 15-20 minutes, and finally had a video conference with the Senior Inside sales manager.

    The whole process was really smooth. Didn't ask any difficult questions. Just wanted to get a feel of you as a person. They made an offer the same day. I got a call from the recruiter a few hours later and was extended an offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Experian.

    Interview

    The phone interview was carried out by one of their principle scientists, and lasted for about an hour. The interviewer was very friendly. After brief introductions, there are a list of questions asked, including coding, probability, linear algebra, numerical analysis. The interview was mainly focused on skills and knowledge, not so much about behavioral. Not your regular phone interview.

    No feedback. When they acquire companies, they don't conduct interviews as they do for new hires. Basically, they ask general questions about your role to then match against existing Experian job descriptions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Experian (Allen, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    A couple weeks after I applied, I recieved a call for a short phone interview. I'm guessing it went well because she scheduled a face to face interview the very next day. I interviewed with two guys. They were dressed very casual which is a plus. They were so nice & made me feel comfortable talking to them. Both guys asked a series of questions. After the interview, they told me I would hear back from them in a week. I heard back the next day & accepted the job offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Experian (Dallas, TX) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Phone interview, followed my a face-to-face. It wasn't anything out of the norm. An offer was made by the time I even had a chance to get back to my office. If you get a callback, the only way you can possibly screw this up is by not providing enough feedback. I can honestly say that I did not prepare for this interview and nailed it. This job is more for students in college.

    Executive Assistant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Experian in July 2014.

    Interview

    Initially a recruiter contacts you and conducts a basic phone interview. Casual nice and comfortable. Basically it is to learn about candidate and see if they are a good fit for position. If you pass that, the next step is an in person interview while it can take a bit of time to schedule, the recruiter is great with giving status updates. In person, I interviewed with a small group, they really give you the opportunity to talk about yourself and skills. They ask questions as needed and allow the candidate to ask questions. Comfortable and professional Everyone was very nice. Definitely left me with a wonderful impression of the company.

    Very professional... They offered a great salary and package. After accepting you go through the normal background check and drug testing, which actually goes quite quickly. One of the best interview processes I have ever gone through. Even the security personnel outside in parking lot and inside at reception were professional and courteous.
