Very Easy Interview

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
Providence, RI

I applied in-person and the process took 1 week - interviewed at IKON in June 2007.

Interview Details – It took a little longer than I expected. I had my phone interview and because I had experience in the field they made a sales manager interview the next day. From there I met with a Director of Sales two days later. From there they made it known I was going to be hired. However it took the recruiter 30 days from there to schedule the drug test and get an offer letter. DOS was informitive and the boss I interviewed was great.

Interview Question – They asked me to be a customer to give a elevator pitch for IKON. He expected I did my homework on IKON   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I was able to negotiate. I had 3 years sales experience 2 in the same vertical market. Consider what you need to make year one with no experience and ask to see your territory. See what your first 18 months would bring in for lease expirations

AE Interview

AE

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at IKON in October 2011.

Interview Details – Laid back initial interview that went suprisingly well. Was scared from the start when the regional manager said that he had been with the company for three years. I think that it was a great opportunity to move up quickly, but it seems as if the turnover rate is high.

Interview Question – Stongest skill when it came to sales?   Answer Question

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at IKON in December 2010.

Interview Details – The process was fairly simple and consisted of writing out answers to a series of questions, a phone interview with an IKON recruiter, and then a 1 on 1 interview with the Sales Manager. There were not a lot of questions asked, more of a conversational type interview process. Just remember to close for the job if interview is for a sales position.
