Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in June 2015.

Interview

Went into the office in NYC. Was interviewed by 2 people (one after the other). Included a role play with both interviewers in which you are asked to be a Yelp Account Executive and try to sell Yelp to a local business. They refuse Yelp services and you have to try to convince them to buy.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Yelp.

    Interview

    It starts with a short phone screening and a role play. This is followed by a few other interviews, ( mine were Skype) . There are more role plays each round, but the rest of the questions are pretty basic and are just about your background and interest in Yelp.

    Interview Questions

    • Role plays, but they coach you through them and really are just seeing if you are competent enough to hold the conversation.   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    They bring you in a room and three different interviewers come in one at a time. They do a role play as well as ask behavioral questions. The role play they want you to first try to just make an appointment with a business owner- they want you to ask questions then be assertive with setting a date and time. The second role play they want you to convince a business owner to use yelp even though they say they don't have money. Again, ask open ended questions. Third role play they ask you to sell them anything you're passionate about.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Yelp (Phoenix, AZ).

    Interview

    I applied to the job online, submitting a cover letter and resume online. The next day I received an email requesting a short, 15 minute phone interview. The phone interview felt like a refreshingly genuine interaction with a person--it mitigated all the typical interview questions. Next, I was asked to conduct an hour Skype interview with three managers at the location I was being considered. In this interview, I was asked, among other questions, to practice sales pitches as a future account executive. The exercise is really great in putting you in the shoes of what you will be doing in the day-to-day activities of the job. Each interviewer provides feedback, which you are asked to implement in the next pitch.

    Interview Questions

    • If you do not have a background in sales, they will notice and really push you to convince them why you want to enter the field.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    I realized I wanted to pursue another field of interest outside of sales.

    Interview

    Applied online, had a phone interview that lasted about 10 min with just basic background questions then came in for a face-to-face interview with three hiring managers. I met with each manager individually and answered a few more background questions but the majority of the interview was sales role playing.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yelp.

    Interview

    The first interview was done over the phone and last only about 15 minutes. Basically they ask you why sales, why you are right for sales, and why you want to work for Yelp. They are looking for you to be direct, assertive, and well-spoken. Second interview is either on site or via Skype if you are from out of town. You meet with three sales managers and have to do sales call role playing. They want you to implement feedback from each of the managers and steadily improve as you go along. They dont expect you to be perfect but they expect you to take their advice and apply it.
