    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Explorica Inc (Boston, MA).

    • Are you sure you want this job? (I was asked this multiple times as sales can be quite difficult-they don't want people to be surprised about what it's like)   Answer Question

    Sales Consultant Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Explorica Inc (Boston, MA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was a phone interview. I was called at the time the interviewer said they were going to, and they were very friendly. I am not interested in working sales, so I was using this interview as a practice one. I am fresh out of college, so I have not had too much experience with the interview process, but it was a great first experience. The interviewer was straightforward, and able to answer all of my questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Explorica Inc (Boston, MA) in May 2013.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen and then was brought in for 2 separate in person interviews. The in person interviews were a combination of 1 on 1 interviews and group panels. They are very relaxed while interviewing and make you feel at ease. If you have a lot of promise, you will be able to tell that they are interested in hiring you. Its important to be confident and personable. They want to know that you are great with people.

    Negotiation

    I didn't need to negotiate much for this job. I did push them into making an offer quicker since I was waiting to accept another position.

    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Explorica Inc in October 2009.

    Interview

    I had two phone interviews- one with the hiring manager and one with a department manager. Pretty standard questions- about my background, why I'm interested in the role, etc etc.

    Then I had in person interviews- with three different individuals all on the same day- first the same department manager that I had the phone interview with, then another department manager, and then the VP of marketing and sales. The interviews were relaxed, it was for a sales role so of course a lot of the questions focused on pipeline building, past experiences, being comfortable on the phone, etc. Then I shadowed a Senior Sales Executive for about 30 minutes.

    I was contacted within maybe 2-3 days after that with an official offer.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your strengths and weaknesses?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Unfortunately I was a bit too green to negotiate salary so I got the short end of the stick initially. I would definitely recommend that anyone who is offered a position does a little negotiating because more likely than not your offer for a starting base salary is going to be pretty weak.
