    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Aberdeen in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had a very positive experience with the entire recruitment process. The sales executive extremely professional, positive, and you can tell that it is a very welcoming environment for new employees. I excepted the offer is soon as I received it. I look forward to starting in a few days.

    Sales Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Aberdeen (Boston, MA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    After applying, I heard from the HR manager to set up a phone screen with the hiring manager. He was obviously new at being a sales manager and interviewing. It was fairly obvious from the conversation that it wouldn't be a good fit, which is absolutely fine. However, this company fails when it comes to professionalism and process. I followed up with a thank you note and received no response. That is unprofessional when you have had an hour long conversation and the person - who is in sales mind you - can't be bothered to reply/acknowledge the note; regardless if they or not they want to continue the interview process. Add to that when the interviewer says the HR representative will get back to you about possible next steps and that HR person doesn't provide a "thank you but we won't be pursuing your candidacy" email, that is simply lame. This absolutely reinforces my instinct that the company is living up to the negative reviews you see on Glassdoor. As a side note, if you are considering a sales position, I would be very wary of working for an inexperienced, stereotypical sales manager who talks big, but has very little substance.

    Very quick. Met with 6 people back to back, one on the phone. I also had one phone interview. 3 senior leaders, a coworker, the current CEO, and salesperson.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Aberdeen (Waltham, MA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of a phone interview with HR and a second phone interview with the Hiring Manager, plus in-person interviews with the Hiring Manager and the rest of team. They also requested a writing assignment about a technology topic. The HR person didn't act professionally, and I discovered along the process that it wasn't a good fit for me. However, it was nice to meet some of the team members who seem committed to their jobs.
