Interview Details –
I applied though my college job posing board. The next day I got an email to set up an initial phone interview with HR. First interview was finding out more about me, NetSuite, and why I wanted to work in sales. Basic questions about what drives you and if you are motivated.
Second interview was a phone interview with a sales manager. Same basic questions. Be very confident in your answers and know what you are talking about.
Third interview was an onsite interview with sales manager, VP, senior manager, and 3 BDRs. Again, be confident in all your answers and show that you believe in what you are saying. This is a sales position... act like you are working in sales.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NetSuite.
Interview Details –
I was initially informed about the position from a current BDR who thought I would be a good fit for the program. After submitting my resume through employee referral, I was contacted within a day by a recruiter to set up a first round phone call.
The first phone conversation was helpful to clarify my understanding of the responsibilities associated with the position, but also required a fair amount of background research on the company.
Following the conversation with the recruiter, I was put in touch with the manager of the BDR program. This phone screen consisted of rapid-fire questions, and required a great deal of industry and company research to feel confident in my responses. Know your background, how it blends with the responsibilities of the role, and be able to speak intelligently about how you foresee yourself evolving in the company and the industry as a whole. This conversation also felt like a test to my ability to remain calm under pressure, since the questions came quickly and I had to think on my feet.
The next step in the interview process was an onsite, and was only a week after my second phone call. I met with two managers for one-on-one discussions, had a more informal conversation with three current BDR's, and then had a final conversation with the BDR manager and another senior employee. This final discussion wrapped up much of what had been touched on in the previous interviews, and additionally emphasized the sales aspect of the role with sales-specific questions and scenarios.
I received an offer two business days after the onsite interview.
Interview Question – What did you not like about the conversations you have had with NetSuite employees thus far? Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NetSuite in May 2013.
Interview Details –
I applied online after viewing a posting on my career services website.
1. NetSuite replied to my application within 3 hours of my submission, and then set up a phone call for the next day.
2. First phone call -- qualifying call to make sure you've done your homework on the company and that you're interested in the position for more reasons than that it pays. Know your own qualifications and be prepared to defend them. Ask questions. At the end of the call, the representative connected me with the head of the BDR program and requested that I take the initiative to set up the next call.
3. Next call happened a day later. Similar qualification process but have more questions and be prepared for a more difficult interview. Very fast paced. You've got to be sharp and confident.
4. In-office interview. Met in person with the Manager who I spoke with first, then met with two rounds of current BDRs in groups of 3. I really enjoyed this part of the experience because it gave me an opportunity to meet with people doing the role I'm applying to, and to ask them real-world questions and expect real-world answers. They were all highly enthusiastic about the position and gave me great reasons to pursue the opportunity. I then met with the manager of the program that I spoke with on the phone. She was even more direct in person than she was on the phone, but I appreciated not beating around the bush. She set me up with the program manager of the Denver office on a conference call, and I interviewed with her before we concluded the session and they saw me out.
5. Within 24 hours of my in-person interview, they set up a final round interview so that I could meet the Denver manager in person and the director of TED. You still have to bring your A-game, but it was nice to go in and meet everyone in person.
6. Within 3 hours of my leaving the office, they called with an offer.

Negotiation Details – No negotiation for the BDR program, but very competitive compensation.
I applied through an employee referral and interviewed at NetSuite.
Interview Details – I was introduced to the NetSuite BRD program through a friend who was in the program already. The process began with a fairly strait forward phone interview, consisting of questions regarding previous sales experience, why I was interested in the NetSuite BDR program, etc. I was then invited to an on location interview. This consisted of a series of five consecutive 45 minute interviews with an HR rep, manager, and two upper level managers, and a group interview with four current BRD's. Each interview went smoothly, and everyone was friendly and personable. Many questions were directed towards sales experience, primarily with focus on being confident both in person and on the phone, as much of the position involves cold calling.
Interview Question –
"What is the most difficult of challenging thing you've had to face."
Although this seems strait forward, I was caught off guard by the question as it didn't seem to relate to any other questions asked in the series of interviews. Answer Question
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at NetSuite in January 2013.
Interview Details – Quick turn around for first round, within 2 days scheduled a phone interview with a current BDR. All questions based off resume with emphasis on transferrable insides sales skills. The second round with the head of the program seemed like a verification of the first round. The interview started late and she came across as harried and uninterested. All in all, they say the company is experiencing fast growth but this wasn't a very intellectual process and the corporate culture reflected this. Seems like they want to groom people from the basics and aren't looking for qualified/overqualified candidates.
