Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
San Francisco, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Progressive Digital Media in March 2010.

Interview Details – The process was easy. Did a phone screening and then went for an in person interview. It was a very laid back 45 minute interview. Their philosophy is to get a feel for a person and then give the person a chance at the job (if they think the person would be a good fit). At the end of the day, they understand that they really won't know how well a person will do until they get into the job and start trying.

Interview Question – Tells us about your past sales experiences? We will then tell you how this experience is different.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was some negotiation involved, via email. You can definitely negotiate for the high end of the salary range they give you, but it will be tough to get more than what they say is the high end base salary.

Sales Executive Interview

Sales Executive
London, England (UK)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Progressive Digital Media in January 2012.

Interview Details – Did a role play reading out a script that was given to me over the phoen with the boss. Was pretty easy at first but then was told to get as aggressive as possible which if not in your nature, will be tough. Then more obvious questions to answer. Just make it sound like you're aggressive and will definitely get sales!

Negotiation Details – I didn't do any

Digital Account Manager Interview

Digital Account Manager

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Progressive Digital Media.

Interview Details – Two interviews. One with my manager and the second with the publisher. The first was un-organised rushed and seemed strange but overall it was a pretty standard experience talking about what I have done and how it relates to the new job. The job that was explained was not the actual job at all. It was filled with lies and exaggerations. The second interview I was lied to by the publisher about the commission structure, the target alignment, the performance of the brands.

Interview Question – Do you want to work here?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Easy, name your price.

Analyst Interview

Analyst
Kūkatpalli (India)

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Progressive Digital Media in March 2013.

Interview Details – I was initially called in for interview at Hyderabad, India office. Later I was called for 3rd and 4th round at their new Kukatpally Office in Hyderabad.

After 4 rounds, HR didn’t even bother contacting me for an outcome of the interview. This is totally unprofessional.

Generally speaking: Why MNC`s cannot hire professional HR who can work and hire candidates on their skill and ability? And why is that all MNC`s think HR professionals must be girls who got lots of attitude?

Interview Question – You will give interview but do not expect that they will ever call you or email you about the outcome of it.   View Answer
