    New Market Development Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Troy, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed 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
