Mid Market Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at FinancialForce (San Francisco, CA) in July 2017.

Interview

Phone screen by recruiter, phone interview with hiring manager, phone interview with vp, 4-5 hour in person interview with multiple people. Flew to SFO in for in person interview. Travel Expenses covered 100% by candidate and then reimbursed - in my case 3 weeks after interview. It took a number of rounds of emails to finally get expenses paid.

Interview schedule allowed 30min for lunch which was barely enough time to run across the street to subway - was not offered to have lunch with hiring manager or any other member of organization. Thought that was a little odd given the role and expense of flying someone in.

Seemed as though they want sales candidates to follow their prescriptive process without thought. Have to do it their way even if your experience and style is successful. Felt like they were looking for sales robots. Got more of an "oracle type" sales culture feel overall but didn't get that impression until I was onsite.

Whole process took about 70 days from start to finish.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at FinancialForce in May 2016.

    Interview

    First Round was with HR and standard questions, very professional. No problem

    Second Round was with Manager and very frustrating. He answered my questions with a question. Example: Me: Which vertical is most successful in the mid-market? "Well, you did your research what do you think?" He asked me for value prop on their product and what was the last podcast I listened to. I don't listen to podcasts. When I called to follow up on next steps he told me that I did not make the cut.
    Reason: Value prop was a little shaky and I don't have enough contacts on my Linkedin. Got the definite impression that AGE was a factor. I always overachieved my quotas and had the W-2s to prove it. He was more concerned with window dressing and not what an older female sales executive could bring to the table. Interesting side note: we shared a connection, he couldn't tell me much about him and obviously did not know him. Oh, and he cut and pasted his summary from FFs website. Really impressive!
