Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Application Details
I applied in-person. The process took a week – interviewed at YP in September 2014.Interview Details
Applied online via yp.com, indeed.com, or glassdoor.com. I was applying through corporate website as well as indeed and glassdoor. Both are proficient and helpful as I find my career in sales and marketing. Anyways, I got contacted by HR with 2 different area codes. HR works remotely and contact candidates via email and phone. You will have to go through a telephone screen process, online placement test, and face to face interview. However, I was interviewed with another person at YP's telephone sales training station. BEWARE: Positions are posted as an Account Executive when the position is NOT handling accounts. The candidate will have to do COLD CALLING to sell YP's Advertisment. 2nd BEWARE: Make sure the Interviewer remembers your NAME or else you'll be a number just like everyone's email at the office. For example FIRST NAME INITIAL,LAST NAME INITIAL WITH EMPLOYEE NUMBER: YP2014@yp.com that will be your email while with the company. Notice that their just using you to make sales and bring NEW accounts?Reasons for Declining
Hiring managers did not remember my name. My interview was conducted with another candidate. They called me by another name when my resume was in their hands. I did not feel comfortable working for a company that will not take the time to give me an independent interview. Although I was given a job offer, if wish all the candidates and YP the best. There is a high turnover rate with layoffs. Keep this in mind. If you are working in sales, do not lose your job for YP. YP will find a way to squeeze your skills and turnover in 3 months. I got called in June 2014 and September 2014. September 2014 I got an offer after initial screening and face to face interview. June to Septemeber is exactly enough time to drop you: 3 months!Declined OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
