Senior Account Manager/Director Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Sabre.
Interview Details – Interview process can be lengthy. Typically begins with a Sabre recruiter contacting the perspective employee. This person doesn't traditionally conduct an actual interview but mainly acts as a facilitator to set-up an interview with the appropriate hiring manager. Interview styles vary across teams and managers but they are typically looking for a skill set the organization doesn't already posses. So accentuating skills outside those standard and customary for the given position will go a long way.
Interview Question – Interview questions are fairly standard and vary depending on the hiring manager and department. However be wary of hidden meanings, such as are you free to travel 25% of the time which typically means 75% of the time. Are you free to work evening and weekends as necessary, i.e. on call 24/7 even during paid time off or hospitalizations. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – Negotiations are poor. They have a static offer and they remain fairly close to what is extended
