New Market Development Account Representative Interview

New Market Development Account Representative
Troy, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at GlobalSpec.

Interview Details – Was found via a recruiter. Interviews were long but not overly-scripted. They got right to the point of many things which was appreciated. There were many steps, including a phone mock sales call (phone was the right way to do it since this business was 95% over-the-phone sales for most of the sales reps).

Interview Question – Was re: job history. Many in sales (which of course I found out after) move every 2 years or so, so they wanted to know why they should hire under those circumstances?   View Answer

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
New York, NY

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at GlobalSpec in July 2009.

Interview Details – Kind of a 'junior' in that the process started with a recruiter, manager, director, and a role play. Rather easy but the people interviewing were quite illiterate when answering my questions. Doesn't seem that many people know what GlobalSpec does or at least have a difficult time explaining it.

No worries though. If you know the industry you will do fine

Negotiation Details – Simple. They offer and you decline. They will offer again
