    Pros

    Great benefits, positive work culture, great product

    Cons

    Base pay is low, As an Account Executive, they needed to do more account reviews and move accounts around based on performance, product knowledge and best "client fit" and not base it on AE seniority. Reps needed to use more creativity and consultative sales approach.

    Advice to Management

    Hire open-minded, fair, experienced, positive leaders.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at McClatchy Company (Raleigh, NC).

    Interview

    I only had two interviews before they hired me. Both had me interviewing with a panel of people. The first interview was 4 people, the second six - with higher level managers. It was very intense, but that was part of their tactic. Some left field questions too.

    Interview Questions

    • I was asked to sell them a a pen. This isn't a sales job.   Answer Question
