Application Details

I applied through college or university. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at The Campus Special.

Interview Details

The interview process was quick. I submitted my resume and got a call to do a phone interview with one manager. They just ask you why you want to be an account executive and what your strengths/weaknesses are. After that, you have to do a video interview when they ask you basic behavioral questions. If you pass that section, you get to do another phone interview with a different manager and if they like you, they'll offer the position.

Interview Questions
  • They don't ask difficult questions, but they do want to hear that you have drive and can handle rejection so always say that.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
The job was very hard. You work long days and just going in and out of businesses to find owners and try to sell them things. You only get 10% commission too, which I think it really low.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at The Campus Special.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consists of one over the phone. An online video essay. then a third interview. They will call a fourth time to confirm your interest before giving an offer. Overall very easy and by the book. A great opportunity that will provide plenty to talk about for the next interview in your life.

    Interview Questions
    • They ask what are the most important aspects in sales. I said persistence, presence, and then product knowledge in that order.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    I was hired in like a couple days, so not that hard. you do a phone interview and some other pointless question exercises. It's easy to know what they want to hear. Easiest job I've ever gotten. Then you go to this conference which is paid for, only pro btw, and sit through 4 of the most boring days of your life.

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at The Campus Special in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    First met campus recruiter at a job fair, and gave her my resume. She said we would be in contact, and I later received an email/call promptly. We had a talk/interview, in which case I was given a web interview. After the web interview, I had a phone interview with someone in the headquarter office. Everything was set up well, which is part of the quasi-scam internship they provide.

    This should not be considered an internship, but rather a sales job with no base-pay and horrible perks. I was told after the third interview that I would be contacted later that day for the official word on the job offer. I was contacted months later, saying I didn't get the position (which is good because I was offered a better one).

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at The Campus Special.

    Interview Details

    There is a screening interview and then a phone interview. The screening interview ask basic questions such as: where do you go to school, what is your major, are you active in an clubs/societies/activies. The phone interview has some of those same questions and also asks you to role play a situation for them (gives you a taste of what the internship will really be like and they can get a feel of how your personality and skills will be).

    Interview Details

    Online application. You get a phone call within a week or two. Then you have a phone interview, which is simple easy questions and they talk to you about the internship program. After that they set you up with a skype like interview. You answer 7 questions while being recorded through your webcam. The questions pop up on your screen and you have anywhere from 5-10 seconds to prepare. Last question you have to give a basic sales pitch. Mine was to convince someone to create a facebook that never had one before and has relocated to a new city. After this you have a final phone interview. More interview questions and they go over your video interview as well.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call about 3 days after submitting an application. The phone interview basically went over your resume. The next step is a video interview through a website then another interview. Everything is commissioned based and you'll be successful if you live in a place that isn't small like mines since you are required to at least go to 30 different businesses a day without any gas reimbursement.

    Interview Questions
    • The answer to everything is hardwork, success, and dedication   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    I need money to be able to pay bills and gas during the summertime. Also I felt like my town was too small to meet the requirement of 30 business visits a day.
