    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cogent Communications (Pasadena, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Terrible, Leadership needs to go back to College. They put themselves on a plateau where they think they are better than you. Questions are childish and do not focus on how to obtain goals, they look for a person that can be controlled and subdued, micro managemenet.

    Interview Questions

    • Too many to list but none were germane to sales only to commute and past experiences not what can and should be done to succeed.   Answer Question

    Regional Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Washington, DC
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cogent Communications (Washington, DC) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Very short and to the point. They are just looking for individuals who have strong telecom experience and who are hunters who can find leads and move them through the sales process.

    You typically have a phone screen with a recruiter, then meet with a sales manger and sales director after that. If they like you then they will each out and make an offer fairly quickly.

    Interview Questions

    • They like to ask why do you want to be in sales? What is driving you to wake up in the morning, drive to the office and sell our services?   Answer Question

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Cogent Communications (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Several phone interviews with their head recruiter in DC/Maryland and then met with a gentleman in their New York City branch office, located on Broadway in Bowling Green. Interview wasn't tough, actually WAY TOO easy. He mostly spoke about himself and his experience with the company. Worked their 5 years, recently became a manager (after 2 had left).
    They are in a nice area, right next to the 4,5 express lines which is great but as professional as they push, they were dressed pretty casual. The place was not kept up. Don't really know if it was really worth it.
    Got the interview from an internal referral. Unfortunately, I knew a job there was going to be short-lived. This isn't a career job.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me how you got here? (Meaning in-front of the manager)   Answer Question

    I received a phone call from a recruiter who let me know that they found my resume online, one that I posted over three years ago and explained that they felt that I would be a good fit for a Regional Account Manager based on my experience.
