Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Anonymous Interview Candidate
Application Details

I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UPS in March 2012.

Interview Details

You will first take a personality test to determine if you will move on to the actual interviews. You will then interview with 3 or 4 managers in a panel where they will ask you detailed questions about your work history and interactions with customers and how it would relate to sales at UPS. After that interview if you are recommended for hire, you will meet with HR and an offer will be made.

Interview Questions
  • This was tough because I interviewed so long ago, but it would probably have to do with teamwork that lead to problem solving. No two interviews will be the same because of the panel style.   Answer Question
Negotiation Details
I would suggest not taking the very first offer, however, someone off the street will make more than an internal candidate.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at UPS in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    This is a somewhat lengthy interview process. Starts with online application, followed by an intelligance test and a general "interview" over the phone, which is more just confirming all of the information you submitted. Then brought in for a group/panel interview, which includes a role play/presentation along with several in-depth questions. Overall not bad.

    Interview Details

    I found the process to be challenging and engaging. One of the most difficult interviews I have ever had and I think that UPS is a great place to work. If I could do it all over again I would have spent more time reviewing the materials prior to the interview.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at UPS in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    If you are coming in from the outside there are a lot of tests and background checks that take place before you can be hired. If you are interviewing for a position internally you still have the process of taking some test and multiple interviews. You must have a great work ethic to work in this industry.

    Interview Questions
    • Give an example of how you were able to sell value over price to win business.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at UPS in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Business Development always interviews through a panel interview process. Usually, HR, training manager, and another manager are in the panel interviews. Keep your answers short and concise. Take your time during interview to write down question and think about specific answer. UPS is very much by the book, and if you do apply for a position, it won't hurt to look at specific company policies to use during interview.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Not able to negotiate. It is understood internally that negotiations for pay don't look good on the employee.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at UPS in January 2008.

    Interview Details

    The (Business Development) hiring process takes way too long! They bait you with a computer-based assessment and phone interview. Later a face-to-face interview. Without warning, you walk in and find out it is going to be a panel interview along with an impromptu role play!
