    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Radio One (Washington, DC) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewing with the sales manager was great, he was very friendly and easy to talk to. However, a 30 minute talent interview from a third party company is also required to evaluate your "talent" and if you are a good fit for the company. It was pretty much a personality test. I continued to follow up and no one ever got back to me

    Sales Coordinator Interview

    Interview

    The process was easy, and they move quick. They are very unorganized though, and the offers are pretty low unless you have like 40+ years of experience. Interview was pretty normal, Phone Call, then in person, and offer expressed over the phone.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Radio One (Atlanta, GA).

    Entire management staff has turned over since I was hired but the process is basically the same. Expect 2-3 interviews and be prepared to provide examples of your prior work successes and presentations. If you have key relationships in the market this is a huge plus.
