Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Bloomspot (San Francisco, CA).

Interview

Entire process took about 2.5 weeks from beginning to end. They used an outsourced hiring company where you have to go through a Skype screening interview with the hiring company. If they like you, they send the video to Bloomspot and schedule 1 face-to-face interview. You meet with about 4 people (Recruiter, 2 Managers, and the VP of Sales). The interview questions are STAR format and behavioral questions.

Interview Questions

  • How you prioritize the following tasks: You come into work on Monday morning and see a voice mail from you client, an email from your team member asking you to help out on a proposal, and a note from your manager to come see them.   1 Answer

Negotiation

they have a set base for either their Account Exec or Sr. Account Exec, you can negotiate depending on experience for the title and appropriate compensation.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Bloomspot (San Francisco, CA) in October 2011.

    Interview

    I sat with and account exec. and a sales manager. The questions were mba type questions to see how I would approach a problem. Nothing to complicated. The people seem really nice and laid back.

    I accepted the job and was notified 1 week before my start date that all of the job offers had been rescinded because the company was "changing directions". I had my doubts that maybe the company was teetering a bit figured I would chance it. Reneging on job offers 1 week before a start dates is completely unacceptable. Most jobs wont take a person back. Overall this dealing was incredibly stressful and up to now A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME.

    Negotiation

    I was called in for a FT job and then told that the offer was a contract role...I already have a full time job that pays more than this one (I was trying to make a career change). We settled on full time status but it could have been a huge waste of my time if they stuck to the contract status.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomspot in December 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online for the position. They contacted me to set up an interview in their offices in downtown San Francisco. It was a video interview, so I was nervous about it more than a phone interview. The lady who interviewed me was very professional. She asked me several questions about my sales techniques.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Bloomspot in October 2011.

    Interview

    Referred by a staffing agency. Had a phone call with the recruiter. Was contacted by Bloomspot after they received my resume. Had a 1:1 interview with 2 different people. The first interview was a typical interview... Tell me about yourself, why are you looking for this job? Why sales, etc. The next interview was a mock negotiation where I was given a few minutes to read over the scenario and figure out what I was going to offer the customer and how I would convince them to go with bloomspot.

    Interview Questions

    • Mock negotiation based on criteria given by the interviewer, convince a spa to use bloomspot and also convince the spa to split sale profits with bloomspot   1 Answer
    • How do you handle rejection?   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Bloomspot in June 2011.

    Interview

    I am still in the process of this - I am reporting on the first step and will share what I learn next. Bloomspot used a company called Readyforce to do the initial interview. I had to apply through Readyforce and answer questions to determine your compatibility where it wasn't 100% sure what the "right" responses were, but for the most part it was fairly easy to decipher what they wanted. I.e. rating how much you like change/not having a routine etc. Apparently my resume/answers meant I was a good enough fit. The next step was a video interview with a Readyforce worker. At the end I remember being asked to pretend I was talking to the founder and having to "sell myself." The interview was super preliminary - they asked me if I had reliable transportation, why I wanted to work for Bloomspot, fairly standard questions. The one weird part was when the interviewer picked out a past position of mine (that was the least sales-y and similar to bloomspot) and said your work at xx seems the most relevant to the position, no? This made me think the Readyforce interviewers aren't very serious/seem to be winging it. The whole thing lasted 10-15 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • "Pretend I am the founder of bloomspot, tell me why I should hire you (or maybe it was why you would be a great addition to the team)   Answer Question
    • I can't remember the exact way the questions was phrased, but they want to hear about your past sales experience and if you were ranked against other employees.   Answer Question
