Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global.

Interview Details – Was first contacted by a recruiter over the phone. He was very energetic and positive! Ended up talking for about 45 minutes about the company and basic questions about myself. First interview was set up and I met with the sales manager and a current account executive. Very relaxed, they want to see that you can drive the conversation and talk about yourself. Got to meet the entire office and shook hands with everyone. Second interview was over lunch with sales manager and another account executive - this is to see how you will act with clients. They asked a few questions, "Are you a sensitive person?" but still mostly small talk. Really enjoyed the process and meeting everyone.

Account Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Insight Global in July 2014.

Interview Details – I was contacted through LinkedIn by a corporate recruiter within the company. After a phone call of about 20 minutes, I was offered an in-person interview. At the interview, I met with the office's director of operations and one account manager. Prior to my interview I was told that I would be interviewed by anywhere from 2-5 people in "small talk type conversations" over an hour and a half or so.

Interview Question – There wasn't anything tough about the interview. Questions were standard, but were much more conversational than direct interview questions.   Answer Question

Dallas, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Insight Global in December 2013.

Interview Details – Interview Process was easy but awful because i sat in a room and waited for 30 min to interview and i was asked random irrelevant questions. It was very sketchy and I felt like it was a huge waste of time.

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Raleigh, NC

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global.

Interview Details – Was contacted initially by corporate recruiter. He sort of prepped me for the interview. He told me to ask my interviewer personal questions about him and his life and that there would probably be no real interview structure or questions coming from the interviewer. Honestly a little strange and I wasn't very what to do in the interview, especially coming straight out of college and not knowing much about the world business in general. Also, when walking in the office two female employees asked if i needed help very condescendingly.

I was fresh out of college taking this interview and not really understanding of what the position was exactly and how it fit in to the world of work. This is a sales job. Basically, you start out in inside sales and then become an outside sales person after a period of like 6 months i think.

No idea about the company itself but seems to be a pretty standard sales job working for a very sales focused company.

Interview Question – Was not really asked any questions.   Answer Question

Interview Details – Interviewed with three people in one day all within one hour. Had to try and make an impression pretty quickly. They were upfront about salary but I am not sure about negotiating.

Difficult Interview

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied online - interviewed at Insight Global in December 2013.

Interview Details – I got a phone call from them and was unexpectedly thrust into a three question phone screening process. Make sure you have thoroughly looked over their website. I got a call weeks after applying with them so I was unprepared when I got the call. Also, the account manager position is just like every other entry level marketing job... it's sales. And apparently "wining and dining" with clients as well. Seems a bit much for an entry level job but that's what I figured out during my phone screening. After about a 10 minute conversation, the interview was ended abruptly and I was told my resume would go to the hiring manager and they'd "let me know" (aka they'd wait a couple days and then send me a ding letter, which they did). During the phone interview, I got a sense that the place was very high energy and fast paced. I think very extroverted people would do well here.

Interview Question – Three questions on the phone to be prepared for:
1. Tell me about yourself
2. Do you have any questions about our company?
3. Why are you interested in sales?

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Insight Global in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied online and was contacted via email asking to set up a time to meet on campus for an interview. The interview itself lasted 15 minutes where it seemed they were mainly evaluating personality. It seemed rather unstructured and organized.

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Nashville, TN

I interviewed at Insight Global in March 2010.

Interview Details – They came to my campus recruiting people and said the recruiter said after all the people he had talked to I was the only one who was going to be asked to interview at corporate. Then I went up there and interviewed with 4 separate people, heard back 2 days later they decided to move on with other candidates.

Interview Question – Not many technical questions, fairly monotonous because it was 4 people coming in and asking the exact same thing and having extremely similar backgrounds. Just be able to answer the basics and why you want to get into sales // show them that you are willing to grind out.   Answer Question
