    I have been working at Reed Business Information full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Candid, straight-forward manager, open to new ideas and willing to help! Supportive teammates, phenomenal benefits with very generous time off starting at day one of employment.

    Cons

    New goals are often introduced without end to end report testing and without considering an appropriate benchmark period to ensure goals are attainable by more than 1/8th of the team.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Understanding the Customer must be the driver behind our business, upper management must be more inclusive when goal setting to avoid managing to a number over the best interest of our products,.

    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sutton, London, England (UK)

    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Reed Business Information in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Went through an agency, group interview with approximately 20 people was whittled down to a shortlisted 8 with 4 jobs to spare. The hiring managers it seemed went mostly of personality and their gut rather than any particular competence. Did a mock sales call and initially had a 1 to 1 interview which lasted approximately 5 minutes before being offered the job the next day, through the agency.
    Sounds like a hard process as described however most hired colleagues had much smaller groups with less rigorous selection pressures.
