Explorica Inc Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Sales Executive Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Explorica Inc in October 2009.
Interview Details – I had two phone interviews- one with the hiring manager and one with a department manager. Pretty standard questions- about my background, why I'm interested in the role, etc etc.
Then I had in person interviews- with three different individuals all on the same day- first the same department manager that I had the phone interview with, then another department manager, and then the VP of marketing and sales. The interviews were relaxed, it was for a sales role so of course a lot of the questions focused on pipeline building, past experiences, being comfortable on the phone, etc. Then I shadowed a Senior Sales Executive for about 30 minutes.
I was contacted within maybe 2-3 days after that with an official offer.

Negotiation Details – Unfortunately I was a bit too green to negotiate salary so I got the short end of the stick initially. I would definitely recommend that anyone who is offered a position does a little negotiating because more likely than not your offer for a starting base salary is going to be pretty weak.
Marketing Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Explorica Inc in May 2009.
Interview Details – Interview was very informal and relaxed. I was asked about my past experiences, how I felt about the project I would be working on and if I felt I was up for the challenge. I had two interviews, one with the leader of the project and one with the director of the department.
