Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
San Antonio, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 months - interviewed at Labor Ready in May 2012.

Interview Details – Hiring process took three months. three phone interviews and one in person then one ride along with another manager. offices were dirty and management was shady always saying one thing and doing another.

Interview Question – I did not find any of the questions difficult but I was surprised when the bonus structure was explained and didn't add up.   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Management would not keep their word, they would tell you what you wanted to hear then your job turned into 24/7 on call positions. Always getting yelled at for others mistakes and written up when upper management got a call.
