    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at PAETEC (Knoxville, TN) in April 2011.

    Interview

    Brought in for an interview with the supervisor. Blew his doors off then got invited back to an interview with his boss - the regional manager. I basically got told I did not know how to wipe my own ace. It was brutal and I would not want to work for that type of individual. I was about to graduate college and they were looking for someone with 3+ years experience.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at PAETEC (Denver, CO) in March 2011.

    Interview

    It was very structed and very professional. Regional director was to the point and professional. I learned that even office manager was a part of the process by simply chatting with me when I was waiting at the reception. I did like that because I was very natural when speaking with her and I felt comfortable when doing all 4 inteviews I went through.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    It went well. Company was understanding of my needs and worked it out with me. They look for quality and they invest in their employess.

    Interview

    Phone interview with Corporate Recruiter and was your typical phone interview. Interview went very well and position was a match to my background but interview never moved to the next step. After numerous follow ups found out another candidate had been selected internally. Overall good interview and would apply again.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PAETEC in July 2011.

    Interview

    1-on-1's, 2-on-1's. Expect role-playing, expect to do a presentation. You will meet a lot of people, but the process is impressively organized and no one makes you feel rushed. The people there are smart, educated, polished, and genuinely want to help you. Be yourself, don't talk about things that you don't know about - training is extensive and they will teach you what you need to know. The process is slow but deliberate.

    Interview Questions

    • Role play: Negotiate a new contract with an established client with recent financial struggles.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Nothing. There's a fixed compensation schedule, and it is what it is. But it's excellent. If you want to earn more, you will have the ability to do that on your own right out of the gate.

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter went fine. Well qualified, salary is acceptable. Face to face interview ended by interviewer saying to "call back in 2 days if you interested in the job." It was a strange ending.
