Senior Account Executive Interview

Senior Account Executive
San Diego, CA

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at TelePacific Communications in February 2012.

Interview Details – Initial interview was conducted with HR over the phone. This was followed up by an online assessment. After clearing both these hurdles, I went in for an in face interview with the person who eventually became my manager. I earned a call back interview to meet with the other sales manager and the general manager of the branch. I heard little in the way of feedback, but I was called in for a final interview where I was offered the position.

Interview Question – I was asked how I dealt with interoffice conflict. It wasn't a difficult question, but it raised a flag that there would be potential squabbles in the office. There were.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is no negotiation. period. You get what you get. Either you approve and take it or you refuse and move on.

Senior Account Executive Interview

Senior Account Executive
Irvine, CA

I applied online and the process took 4 days - interviewed at TelePacific Communications in February 2011.

Interview Details – They need new people all the time - lots of churn. They hope you will bring all your business contacts into the sales process, but after that, watch out! Unless you are well connected with telecom equipment vendors who will refer business to you, you are faced with making at least 30 cold calls/day - on the phone or in person. And if your quota number sink below 50%, be prepared to get fired in 60 days.

Interview Question – Telecom services are a commodity, not a technical widget or service - be prepared for a vicious competitive sales environment inside and outside the company. Can you do it?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation of salary or benefits
