Account Coordinator Interview

Application Details

I applied through college or university – interviewed at News America Marketing.

Interview Details

I was approached at a university career fair. There was a info session the night before the interview led by the two people who were going to conduct the interviews. One was in HR and the other was a Sales Manager. The info session was extremely informative. The next day there were two 30 minute interviews. One with each of the two News America Employees. It was a very sales driven interview. Make sure you talk about why you want to be in sales. Besides being very sales focused, it was a pretty standard interview. Be confident!

    Had an initial in person interview on my college campus. There were two 30 minute interviews. The person who interviewed me was also recruiting at the career fair at my school in the fall. The interview was challenging at times, due to the unexpected questions.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at News America Marketing.

    Interview Details

    I was referred to this position through a career fair and was very excited about the company and the growth projection for future employees. However, they are very strict as to what they are looking for in terms of resume presentation. As a student in a creative field and recruited under those pretenses, I found it very concerning that after contacting me and conducting a first round interview, I was asked to completely redo my resume to match the company's expectations.

    Interview Details

    I got an offer for an interview after talking with a rep at my college's career fair. They held a very informative O&A night before the interviews started. On interview day you meet with a Sales Rep and an HR rep for about 30 min each. This was just for first round.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a lot of questions about sales. Why do you want to be in sales? What experience do you have in sales? Why does sales motivate you? If you are only sort of interested in sales, these can be hard questions to answer.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at News America Marketing in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Went through series oh interviews. First phone, which was simple. they ask about experience and why you want to be in sales. Then you go through a series of three skype interviews, back-to-back-to-back. It's not difficult, they just want to know why you'd be good/interested in sales. Then for the HQ event you go through a rigorous interview process of 7 30 minute interviews.

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at News America Marketing in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by a recruiter in November/December 2013, had an initial interview and we continued to maintain contact via email until March 2014 when I had three FaceTime Interviews, which were disorganized. I was invited to the HQ Event in NYC in March 2014, which is not all its cracked up to be. (I had spiders in my bed at The Club Quarters but did not make a big deal about it). We had a Q&A Session with the CEO and an Account Associate, Director and Group Sales Manager, a cocktail "hour" which was crowded and then a decent dinner with current AC's the first night. Although there were seven interviews the following day, and other than just being mentally draining because you are asked the same questions pretty much over and over, it is not that bad. Many said I was very highly qualified with an excellent resume and I felt great about my interviews. They are looking for very specific candidates, ones that are very passionate about Ad sales. They do not really care for leadership experience because as I see, as an AC, you pretty much do everything you are told by your AA and your Group Sales Manager. They talked about how they didn't have a mission statement, and joked about how they are not important. They said it is "their job to help other businesses reach their goals." That is an objective and serves as their business function; I do not see a very good future for this company; who really uses coupons anymore anyway? The industry is changing. One interviewer said the culture was the same throughout, while another said it varied in different locations. There is just too much disorganization and non-alignment with the values and overall attitude within the organization. Overall good experience and will help you see if it is a good company for you. Best of luck to you.

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at News America Marketing.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted after an on-campus career fair and had a on-campus interview before being flow to NYC for a 2-day interview process that involved a dinner interview with Account Coordinators already in the position and higher managment. The second day consisted of 7 back-to-back interviews at the corporate HQ where I interviewed with various levels within the company. During this process I made it very apparent that I wanted to work in a certain office, and when I was offered the job, it was at that office. Overall, it was a long process but weeded out people who did not really want the position.

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at News America Marketing.

    Interview Details

    I gave them my resume at a career fair and heard from them about a week later. I only went through the first phone interview with HR. The man had me go through each part of my resume and explain specifically how it related to the account coordinator position. It was very straight forward and no hard questions.
