    I worked at Meltwater Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great place to cut your teeth in sales if you're a higher performer and like a challenge. You will be pushed in a good way past your comfort zone (especially if you have a great manager). Re the ratings below on comp and benefits: Like any sales position, they're only SPECTACULAR if you're a CLOSER. If you like going through the motions and making calls to hit your production metrics, this is NOT the place for you. Sales is about closing deals and you will have the opportunity here.

    Cons

    Lack of residual commissions makes eat-what-you-kill (now) all the more important, but earning potential is solid (e.g. you can make $160k+ if you're good; some people undoubtedly made $200k+ being <25 years old). Cold calling only was the primary focus. Greater open-mindedness to other, more comprehensive, sales strategies and tactics may have proved useful. That said, the company is wildly successful, so what they're doing must be working.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Meltwater Group.

    Interview

    brief 10 minute phone screening asking about interest in role, if you're comfortable speaking on the phone, hypothetical situation. Brought in for group interview of about nine interviewees with three interviewers where we received a company presentation, told them about ourselves, and took a "skills test". handful of us brought back the next day for 1:1 consisting of one interviewee and three interviewers.

    Interview Questions

    • Why are you interested in this role? What about your past experience would make you successful here? Why don't you have a job yet if you've been graduated for three months? Are you good at research and data entry? Do you want this job? How would you describe yourself, beyond what your resume tells us?   Answer Question
