Account Manager Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Athens, GA

I applied through college or university and the process took 6 days - interviewed at TransPerfect.

Interview Details – I originally spoke with TransPerfect at a college career fair where they then encouraged me to go and apply through the school's application system. After looking at my resume I was invited to a social "information session" where applicants could speak to current employees about their experiences and ask any questions. An interview was then scheduled electronically.

Interview Question – All the questions were pretty direct behavioral questions. "What would you do if,,,?"   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at TransPerfect in November 2013.

Interview Details – I applied through my university's career center webpage, and then was contacted. I had a face to face interview on campus, then a required writing test, followed by an interview in their office, then a phone interview, followed by a happy hour mixer, and now am currently waiting on the final phone interview and a test. The people I've met are young, in their early-mid 20s.

Account Manager
New York, NY

I applied through college or university and the process took 1 week - interviewed at TransPerfect in September 2012.

Interview Details – Applied via school website. Recruiter called me by phone a few minutes after I had submitted my application. I interviewed with two people individually. They told me their recruitment process was on a rolling basis, and didn't know when they would be able to give me an answer. I ended up accepting a job offer at another company.

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at TransPerfect in July 2010.

Interview Details – The first step was a phone interview which was fairly quick but it was easy to tell if the call had gone good or bad. I was contacted right away for an in person interview.
The in person interview as at the office downtown and was about an hour, I spoke to my previous experience, heard a bit about the position and toured the office.
I meet with my two potential bosses as well as the director for the office.

Interview Question – The director asks some questions that can catch you a bit off guard but they do a great job of seeing how you react to pressure   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Looking back I think I should have pushed for a bit more, knowing the hiring market in the location I interviewed. I ended up taking a pay cut to be in a better location.

Account Manager Interview

Account Manager

I applied through college or university - interviewed at TransPerfect in April 2013.

Interview Details – I applied to the company via my University's career services and within a week I got an email from them to set up a phone interview. They called me right on time and the interview began right away. It was really straightforward, very common questions and nothing too personal. I was really nervous before the call, but the person calling me was very easygoing and made me feel very comfortable, despite being very professional. This was my first interview with the company, so I still don't know if I'll get an offer.
