    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yext.

    Interview

    First I had an HR interview, then an over the phone technical interview of two questions, then an onsite interview consisting of three technical interviews and a behavior interview. The questions were not overly difficult and they help you through if you get stuck. I felt great after the interviews but was not offered a position.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yext.

    Interview

    Began with a simple phone conversation with one of the recruiters. It took another 2-3 weeks to set up an official interview with the hiring person/tech lead. I had a brief conversation with the recruiter who set up the interview, and he was more than helpful. During the actual interview, I had a mixed feeling because the guy practically didn't sound like he was interested in interviewing me. Usual questions: Why Yext? Why this position? Your career goal? and so on. The overall interview was a bit unorganized. I had a better conversation/interaction with the recruiter. I followed up immediately and received no responses from both recruiter and the interviewer. Two weeks later I found out that the interviewer decided not to move forward with my application process.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yext.

    Interview

    I applied online and the recruiter emailed me a few hours later to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was pretty basic with the typical type questions (tell me about yourself, etc). The next day the sent an in person interview request. I met with five people for about 15 minutes each. Basic questions were: tell me about yourself, why sales?, etc. Thinking I had a great interview process and was determined I got the job, they sent a automated decline the next day.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The overall process was very pleasant. Started off with a typical background phone screening. I found this to be the hardest part just due to the nature of the conversation. The interviewer was very friendly and asked questions rapidly in order for you to react quickly and formulate proper responses. After the phone interview, I was asked to come into the company's office in NY for a 1:1 interview with multiple members of a team. Each interview was very pleasant, the employees there want to see you succeed and are not looking to stump you. They just want to know if you are the right fit for the position and that if you talk the talk, you can walk the walk. The office is unbelievable, the sales floor looks like something out of the Wolf of Wall Street, very competitive atmosphere. Super casual and lots of employee perks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yext in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process were rounds of different phone and Skype interviews with the Recruiting Team and then follow-up conversation with different members of the Sales team. Most of the initial conversations discussed previous experiences and interests, and as the process continued they got more in depth about the different product offerings as well as personal interests in sales.

    Client Service Role Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    The hiring process was quite perturbing as the recruiter contacted me for an interview opportunity then wrote to me stating that they had cancelled the role.This type of recruitment practice displays a serious management flaw since the HR department is on a different page from the hiring department in terms of procuring new employees.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Yext.

    Interview

    Very straight forward. They want to see that you are quick on your feet and a person they will enjoy working with. There were no tricky questions. The phone interview was the hardest part the recruiter asked questions very quickly trying to throw you off. After that I was brought in to meet with 6 managers. This was straight forward just getting to know you type questions.
