Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Jersey City, NJ
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at First Data (Jersey City, NJ) in July 2016.

Interview

I was referred by a friend. HR called within days and scheduled some face to face interviews within a couple of weeks. I thought the interviews went well, but I wasn't offered the position, however, I was referred to another department for another position. I was also passed over to another HR rep. This process dragged on for MONTHS, to the point where I finally stopped following up with HR.

In the end I had a total of 9 interviews over the span of 4 months. I did a final check-in and the HR person finally said they decided to go with another candidate. A couple of the interviews felt like an interrogation and others like they were just going thru the motions. They also had me take some financial acumen/cognitive tests online which were very cumbersome.

Overall I felt like they wasted a whole lot of my time (and money, it takes money to interview face to face!). The interview process needs a lot of refinement!

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at First Data (Marietta, GA) in December 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was really, really simple and easy. The recruiter called me from Linkend. There was a phone interview and one in person interview. The amount of money that you earn is not typical. Base pay is $10 an hour. The training team was great! They really knew how to prepare you to get ready to speak to clients.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at First Data (Atlanta, GA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Three interviews.

    The first two interviews were very basic. I met with the sales director and we chatted about a variety of things. Interview went very well.

    Second interview was a 20 min phone interview with another sales director which went well and was very easy.

    Third interview was a little more intense. VP along with the sales director. Some questions about why you chose sales.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not able to negotiate ; unless you speak another language and then you may get a base salary bump.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at First Data (Aurora, CO) in April 2012.

    Interview

    When entering into office, there was no receptionist, only log-in book with scarce instructions. I arrived 15 minutes early, and wandered if I am at the right place, since the office seemed abandoned. Later on I found out that the rest of people- account executives were in the other part of the office, but it seemed too quiet for a call center atmosphere.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at First Data (San Antonio, TX) in February 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process was calm with only one person: a regional manager as the interviewer. The manager asked basic questions and wanted to get to know me as a person and then as a potential employee. After I was offered the job I had to take an online psychological quiz/personality test and drug screening.

    Interview Questions

    • Why would you be good at this job? Why do you want this job? How would you help our company. Why should we give you a chance since you have very little sales experience? Write up a sales pitch about why you should get the job and submit it to the manager on Monday.   1 Answer
