    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Mountain View, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mountain View, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Red Hat in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume and I was contacted 6 hours later by a recruiter. She was very nice and quickly setup a time to chat with me.

    Her initial conversation gave me a good detail overview of how the training would be. The role of an SDR, and what an SDR would do. I also liked how she talked about salary up front: 40k base and 60k incentive. I.e. if you hit your quota, you should be able to make a decent amount of money.

    In addition, the role would be 6-9 months then we would have training again to move up to inside sales rep.

    Following up, I was setup to talk to another sales hiring manager who gave me more details of the process. This was unfortunately followed with some delay in because it was towards Christmas. Heard back two weeks into the New Year to continue interview process.

    **Note I may still continue interview process, but putting it on hold for personal reasons.
