    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Fuel Cycle (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    My only interview was with the VP of Sales, by phone. I came in through a recruiter. The interviewer seemed frustrated -- a bit snarky, although not toward me specifically. We concluded that we were not a match due to my inability to work in their office. (I have always worked from a home-based office.)

    Interview Questions

    • He asked about my sales style and was pleased to know that I am open to feedback -- coachable -- to constantly improve. However, this line of discussion led me to perceive that he would be a micromanager, which is different than a coach.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Fuel Cycle (Los Angeles, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Four phone screens, a half day in person interview with 3-4 team members. After this, a data analysis and presentation were required. The people were pleasant, but I never heard back on a decision until I followed up four times with the lead person I interviewed with. Overall my experience was very unprofessional.

    Market Research Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Fuel Cycle (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2013.

    Interview

    Well, I thought I was interviewing for a market research position but apparently they wanted someone to manage community engagement...which quite frankly is well beneath my credentials and experience, and I would not have accepted an interview for such a job. Additionally, I made my salary expectations very clear before the in person interview and they tried to suggest half the salary. It was absurd. They want people with masters degrees and extensive experience for entry level salaries and positions, to be subordinate to persons with fluff degrees in "social media" who don't even know what SPSS is. They really need to understand how little their company can offer actually qualified professionals, and either scale up their offers or target persons coming out of associate degrees or maybe 4 year programs in fluff degrees. They should stop wasting the time of professionals when they make clear what their conditions are and the company is in no way able to come even close to such an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • What's SPSS?? Tip to management: don't call yourself a market research professional if you don't know what this is.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Job way below credentials, experience, salary. Management seemed highly unqualified and unserious, a bunch of "twitter experts" trying to pretend to be researchers

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Fuel Cycle in May 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online, had short phone interview. In person interview was strained, came off as a cliquish culture, positions self as market research company but associates seem to lack basic knowledge/credentials. It seems like it might be an interesting company for someone just coming out of school, but the low level nature of the work does not correspond with the experience they are asking for, and more so they seemed off-put by any demonstration of real experience. I could see a lot of what people say in the reviews working there through the interview. Knew after meeting the people the job and company wasn't for me, left it at that, never heard back. Like I said, could be a good starter job, not all bad. Seemed like there was possibility for client exposure that could be leveraged into a better job.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions, just awkward ones about personal life, proficiency with social media, how to go about gathering research.   Answer Question

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fuel Cycle (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted just before the new year by one of the Vice Presidents of Think Passenger. She explained to me that she did not generally do the interviewing but wanted to get the ball rolling. We had an absolutely lovely conversation. I confronted her about the negative reviews I have seen on GlassDoor and she responded openly and honestly about the company. She had me convinced. She invited me to come to an in-person interview at the local office the next week. I arrived and met with my contact, an office assistant, at this time I waited for the people who were supposed to interview with me. Though I was 15 minutes early they were 45 minutes late! Then I interviews with three people. The first was a gentle who said he didn't have the time to interview asked me one question and passed me off to the next. The woman who followed was absolutely pleasant, we had a great conversation and made me feel really good about the company and the interview. The third person to interview me was extremely rude, but the interview still went alright. At this point they guaranteed me I would hear from the company within a week and a half if there would be a offer. Once a week and a half past I e-mailed the Vice President who I had originally spoken with (she was the only email I had)... NO RESPONSE. A couple days later I called the office and spoke with the Office Assistant, she simply stated that they don't keep her in the loop on those decisions and could e-mail me later that day with an update. NO RESPONSE. Another week went by and I e-mailed the Vice President again. NO RESPONSE. It has now been well over a month since I have interviewed. I should have listened to the reviews I read on glassdoor and not wasted my time.
