Account Executive Interview

Account Executive

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers.

Interview Details – I experienced a phone interview from a hiring manager in sales. He asked some basic questions such as: what brought you to apply to this company, how did you here about the position and what are you looking for in your next job/career. He was brutally honest about the position in that he was very detailed about the working conditions, the number of calls expected to be made, the small cubicle that I would be working from is I got the job and the "ridiculously low base salary". He went on to say that it would take about a year to ramp up!?? That was enough for me to say thanks but no thanks.

Interview Question – Not necessarily a question but, more of a statement; it takes about a year to ramp up!   Answer Question

Account Executive
Atlanta, GA

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers in September 2012.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview, then in person interview with Sales Manager and General Manager. Pretty basic, really just getting to know the person and determining their hunger for sales. Offer was made a few weeks later and was able to get started at the beginning of the next month. Very straight forward and simple process, but tried, true, and effective.

Interview Question – Asked to try and sell the interviewer his pen, pretty standard for a sales position.   Answer Question

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
Philadelphia, PA

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers in April 2012.

Interview Details – I am a transfer from another location. The interviewer was a sales manager. He was knowledgeable about the sales processes for NH and asks good questions related specifically to this type of sale. He hadn’t been with the company very long (3 months) according to his linkedin profile, but he did a good job and I accepted their offer.

Interview Questions

  • How do you present a price increase to your clients such as the one we just had with Cisco?   View Answer
  • What happened at your last position? Why would you go if things were so good?(I provided detailed success documentation)   View Answer

Negotiation Details – They will usually give you an unacceptable offer to start. You will have to negotiate by providing data to why you are worth more than whatever offer they make. Make a good case (sell yourself) and they are fair, you will get your money.

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers in March 2012.

Interview Details – Initially was contacted by a recruiter, who unfortunately stood me up for our phone interview, and never returned my phone calls. Despite this when I did talk to her she was exceedingly nice and helpful about my feedback.

I also was supposed to interview with BOTH sales managers, but I will be honest I was 20 minutes late, so that may have impeded the scheduling. The sales manager I met with was great, he was informative, a little casual, but very honest about the position. The office culture was quiet, but seemingly happy and productive.

Interview Question – Nothing big or crazy different, basically about your experience, your qualifications, your ability to generate business.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I think this would have been a consideration if I was looking for an entry level sales job however, I have college loans, car payments, and have had career jobs for several years, so the base salary and lack of information on commitment (plus negative feedback on other sites) made it hard to make the leap into a new career at this paygrade.

Very Easy Interview

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
Overland Park, KS

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at New Horizons Computer Learning Centers in January 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process wasvery easy and laid back. No tricky or corny questions, just a good conversation about expectations and my background. I met with the Sales Manager and the General Manager on my first interview. Te second interview was just with the Sales Manager and we primarily discussed the base of 36,000 that they call a "non-recoverable draw" and way too complex commission structure. They could easily simplify it.

Interview Question – What are you looking for in your next job?   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Seems like a good company and very good Sales Manager. However,the job primarily consists of smile and dial cold calling and very little relationship building with clients and prospects. You are required to be in your seat from 8-5 regardless of your numbers. Felt like it was a role for more of a junior sales person.

Interview Details – Paul called and ran me through a quick phone interview.
