    Client Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Indeed in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by the Talent Management Representative via email and quickly set up a phone interview with her, which lasted about 20-30 minutes. It mostly entailed talking about my experience, the position I was applying for, the company and its history, etc. Toward the end of the phone interview I was asked to come in later that week and interview in the offices in Stamford.

    I met with the same woman I interviewed with on the phone and she answered any initial questions I had going into a series of interviews with different members of the client support team. I met with three members of the team that day back-to-back-to-back. The length of each of them depended completely on the conversation, as it was obvious they only had a couple questions to ask and were really looking to have a dialogue. After all that, she came back in and wrapped it up and expressed interest in moving onto the next stage of the interview process.

    The third phase was a skills assessment done online through a link the company provided. It gave situations in which a person in this position might encounter and evaluated the responses. It took about a half hour.

    After that, I was asked to come back in and do another series of interviews with two more members of the team. Again, they lasted as long as the conversations that were taking place. After that, I was told that I would be contacted after the client support team collaborated.

    I was offered the position probably 3 or 4 days later, contingent on a background check, and was ultimately chosen shortly after I submitted my consent for the check.

    Interview Questions
    • It was more of a conversation with everyone I talked to than a formal interview. It went back and forth but was not broken up into the interviewer asking a question, pause, then me answering. All of the interviews focused on getting to know me and seeing if I would be a fit for Indeed.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Indeed ended up offering me more money than I asked for initially.

    Client Support Specialist - Ad Agencies Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Indeed in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    Someone set up a time when I could interview. I got a call right on schedule from an Indeed rep, and was asked the basic questions about if I knew the position, why I wanted it, etc. They went over my resume, particularly areas of interest, then ended by saying that she'd talk it over 'with the team' and see where to go from there.

    Nothing more than a typical screening that went badly.

    Client Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Indeed.

    Interview Details

    Had a phone interview - very standard questions asked. Next, met with the team lead - standard questions again. Met with the SVP of client services, again standard questions were asked. They really are not interested in right or wrong answers, they just want you to fit into their culture of young professionals looking to grow.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotiation phase was easy. If they like you, they will give you your expected salary (so if they find you on Linkedin or through a conference or referral, know that you have some leverage). If not, don't expect a grand salary.

    Interview Details

    Brief phone interview with HR rep, formal interview with the woman who would be my direct boss, and then an interview right after with the manager of the department. Very relaxed interview, but formal questions asked. Reviewed resume, talked about the company and the position.

    Reasons for Declining

    They were very enthusiastic about be joining the team, offered 40,000 and I declined. I asked for more money because I would be relocating to the area. The HR rep said she'd talk to the manager and see what she can do. She then got back to me saying there was nothing additional they could offer. I would have accepted for 45,000 which I had told her was what I was asking for.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Indeed in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied to a sponsored ad on Indeed.com and received an email a couple of days later asking to speak on the phone. I had a nice conversation on the phone with a recruiter early the next week. The phone screen went well and I was invited in to interview with two team leaders the same Friday. This interview was a pretty simple with no unexpected questions and they tell you a little more about the position. I heard back the next Monday and was scheduled for a second Friday interview with the Director of the department and a writing assessment. Passed through this stage and heard back the next Monday for a third interview with the SVP of Client Services. Waited roughly a week after this and received an offer.

    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Indeed in September 2012.

    Interview Details

    Typically you will first have a telephone interview and if they like you they will invite you in for a 1st round of interviews. This round is made up of meeting with 4-6 team members who ask you a few questions and generally just try to get a feel for who you are and what you are looking to get out of working at the company. The team leader gives the most in-depth questions. If you make it through this round (I did not), they will ask you to prepare a sales pitch that you will come back and give to a larger group of employees. This was literally my first interview out of college, so I had no clue how to conduct myself.

    Interview Questions
    • They weren't trying to mess with me. Very straight forward.   Answer Question

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Indeed in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an Indeed recruiter via LinkedIn. They set up a phone screening call, which started the process. After that, they scheduled an on-site meeting with 1:1 meetings with several directors. After passing that step, they scheduled a presentation in front of a panel of directors and the Sr Director as well. Once this was over, they made the offer right away.

    Interview Questions
    • They made me sell Indeed to them on what information I could find online (only) - Their questions were designed to see if I knew enough about their product and if I could think on my feet - Not knowing the right answer was ok, as long as I had a smart reply.   View Answer

    Small Business Advisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Stamford, CT
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Indeed in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I met with a recruiter, the manager and the VP. There was a written test along with a phone test (to see how well you could communicate your thoughts). It is a good idea to review the site in order to be able to focus on you delivery rather then the content of the answer. They don't mind if you don't know the product perfectly but it definitely helped me feel more prepared.

    Interview Questions
    • The manager told me flat out, a lot of people are qualified for the job, why should they hire me. It was very blunt and made it seem like they thought very little of the position which is a shame. I felt like she wanted me to promote myself which is fine. A better way to do this probably would have been to say what makes me more qualified or a better fit that other applicants. I think this would have gotten the same answer out of me as well as not felt like they were discrediting the position.   Answer Question
