Studio Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Design Within Reach (New York, NY) in December 2013.

Interview

Went to the store directly and gave someone my resume. Followed up and came in for an in person interview within a week. Met with two individuals, mainly general career/why you want to work here/can you sell questions. Completed a digital sales ability questionnaire that you had to pass.

Finally there was a group interview with the studio team members I'd be working alongside.

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Design Within Reach (Austin, TX) in July 2010.

    Interview

    It's typically a two-step process where you interview with the Studio Proprietor and then, if the Proprietor gives the thumbs up, the Area Manager. Be prepared to discuss Design and Mid-Century furniture. Interview will also probe into how you deal under pressure and how you feel about engaging with customers. The key is to never ask, "can I help you find something today?" but instead start a conversation with the customer about the item they are currently looking at.
