Inside Sales Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Gartner in October 2014.

Interview Details

Long, repeat phone calls with different people, then finally after 4-5 calls an in person interview that is also a role play that was poorly planned, badly executed and had conflicting instructions. Having a contrived situation that is not real is not the way to evaluate a senior level sales executive, this is for kids.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Gartner in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    Gartner hires based on traits. Competitive, sense of purpose, motivated... You'll speak to a couple of recruiters that will identify what role you might be best suited for. After they identify you would be good fit for the AE role you move on to a manager interview. Typically two managers. After which you could be required to write a follow up email with what you learned so far in the hiring process, the company, etc... After this there is a panel interview in which you will present about YOU. WHY YOU. WHY You now format. And you will also do a role play. It helps if you have an internal reference to submit your resume.
