    I interviewed through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at First Data in April 2013.

    Interview Details

    Three interviews.

    The first two interviews were very basic. I met with the sales director and we chatted about a variety of things. Interview went very well.

    Second interview was a 20 min phone interview with another sales director which went well and was very easy.

    Third interview was a little more intense. VP along with the sales director. Some questions about why you chose sales.

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    The process took a day - interviewed at First Data in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    When entering into office, there was no receptionist, only log-in book with scarce instructions. I arrived 15 minutes early, and wandered if I am at the right place, since the office seemed abandoned. Later on I found out that the rest of people- account executives were in the other part of the office, but it seemed too quiet for a call center atmosphere.

    The process took 1+ week - interviewed at First Data in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Spoke on the phone with the recruiting manager and she was very nice. We pretty much talked about my previous jobs, and my history in sales. Everything was basic, didn't ask me any hard questions which was nice considering interviews scare the crap out of me. There were two phone interviews which took about 30mins each. Took about a week to get back to me and then I was offered a job.

    I interviewed in-person. The process took a day - interviewed at First Data in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I reached out to the hiring manager directly. The job was an internal posting. I was able to schedule a in person interview to discuss the position and benefits. The interview was very laid back and the manger was down to earth. I felt comfortable asking questions and going through mock sales.
