Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Robert Half in March 2011.

Interview Details – I had my detailed interview with OfficeTeam. The account manager sourced out several positions for me. I felt Robert Half would be my best option as a temp to hire. I started as a temp and had an informal interview. After working with the company for 6 months I was offered a choice of two positions that became available.

Interview Question – I do not recall a difficult question.   Answer Question

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager
Long Beach, CA

I applied through other source and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Robert Half in December 2011.

Interview Details – I went through 3 interviews (division manager, branch manager, vp) and I found this office to be very aggressive in their recruiting tactics, which is a complete turn off to me. They bad mouth their competitors and think of themselves as "the PHD's" of staffing agencies.

A friend passed on my resume to them, thinking they were going to place me at a job. However, when they called, they actually wanted me to work there instead as a "recruiter." I pretty much spent 4 hours there in total over a span of 2 days listening to them talk about how great a company they are and why I should work for them. I found the hard sell to be a total turn off.

Reason for Declining – I declined because I didn't want to be micromanaged.

Very Easy Interview

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied in-person and the process took a day - interviewed at Robert Half in July 2011.

Interview Details – This interview went extremely smooth and casual. There were some basic questions about what I looked for in a job and then some experiential questions, but it was more similar to a conversation than an interview.

Interview Question – Describe a situation where you were able to pull out a sale after feeling you had no chance.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – The package was established and I did not negotiate it. It was a a generous package for an entry level sales position. I have been offered over five positions and none have been quite as high as this.
