    Client Success Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Ascend Learning (Detroit, MI) in August 2016.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume online I received an email from a corporate recruiter based out of Kansas City. A few back and forth emails lead to a 30 minute pre-screening/phone interview. About 3-4 days later I received a follow up email informing me that I had been selected to move forward to an in person interview and was informed that the process would take roughly 2 hours and would be broken down into multiple group interviews.
    I had a great experience meeting everyone in the office and felt that the process was needed and warranted for this type of position as it was a nice mix of open discussion and in depth experience related questioning.
    Sadly since the interview there has been very little communication in terms of rejection or an offer being made.

    Neutral Experience

    Application

    I interviewed at Ascend Learning in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was interviewed briefly by a recruiter. The meeting was effective, but the lack of follow-up was disappointing. I understand if you moved on to other candidates, however the lack of communication was one that leaves me less likely to consider or recommend employment.

    Interview Questions

    • I don't recall the specific questions, they generally asked for a summary of my experience and skills   Answer Question

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ascend Learning (Leawood, KS).

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted within a week for a phone interview with a recruiter. After the phone interview, the recruiter called back and asked me to schedule a phone interview with a manager. Then, I visited the office for about 2.5 hours and interviewed with 4 more people, 3 as a group. I was invited to come in to meet with yet another person 2 weeks later. I was told everything went well in my previous 4 interviews and I just needed to meet with one more person. After meeting with that person, the recruiter just fell of the face of the earth. I went into the office twice and had five interviews over the course of a month with absolutely no response from the company. How rude!
