    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cary, NC

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at SAS Institute (Cary, NC).


    Initial call with recruiter, call with hiring manager and his Director, then a presentation to both hiring manager and Sr. Director of Sales. I had to create a territory plan to showcase how I would attack my new territory. Flew down to Cary, NC where they are HQ at and did the presentation. It was a smooth process and enjoyable. I received the position.
