Enterprise Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Employee
Renton, WA

I applied in-person and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Integra Telecom in January 2011.

Interview Details – Interview process was a enjoyable process. There were no tricky antics or meaningless steps to the process. Managers were professional and efficient during the stages of phone interview to the in person meeting. Follow up is key to the process as they want to see how you would approach a target prospect you would try to set a meeting with.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time you were trying to get an appointment and succeeded.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There is not one. 52,000 is the most they pay for the Enterprise sales position. If you think you want to sharpen your negotiation skills have at it.......

Marketing Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Integra Telecom in May 2011.

Interview Details – In total process was 3-4 weeks from the time I applied, pre-screened, conducted the in-person interviews and heard back from the recruiter. I pre-screened over the phone with the Hiring Manager. Then was called in 2 weeks later for an in-person interview which took about 45 minutes. Friendly process overall. They kept to the 45 minutes pretty strictly. Parking was paid for which was nice. I have had to pay up to $15 for parking before in the city on an interview. So this was a nice gesture for them to comp my parking. Positive experience overall. I did not meet the immediate experience they were lookikng for.

Very Easy Interview

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
Portland, OR

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Integra Telecom in February 2009.

Interview Details – This was a very time consuming and embarrassing interview process. hiring managers used a peer to discuss salary. I was asked if I know what a PIP is, told that I would have to pay for parking at work.

Interview Question – Do you want to make a cold call? Lets go...   View Answer

Reason for Declining – It was a bait and switch. Bait the Senior Sales exec, and slam dunk them into a role they are overqualified for for poverty level pay.

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Integra Telecom in September 2009.

Interview Details – The company overall comes off very nice, but they make sure they are in control and put in a couple jibes. Seems they expect you to be exactly what your resume is and so getting to know more isn't very important, they talked way more then I did. I spent a couple hours bouncing from employee to employee. Didn't get a real feel for what the departments were like as I moved around but there were a lot of empty cubes.
