    Revenue Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at GuideSpark.

    Interview

    Applied online with just my resume and I got emailed with a request for a 30 min phone interview. We scheduled the phone interview and a sales manager asked me behavioral questions, mostly to gauge whether I'd be good at sales. They said they'd recommend me for the next steps, but I got an email the next day saying they were going in a different direction. The email communication was overall impersonal and blunt, not a lot of effort to make applicants feel comfortable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GuideSpark.

    Interview

    The interview process took several months with long periods of not hearing back from anyone. There were several phone interviews, 2 skype interviews with 2 people each, and so on. Some interviewers were inexperienced and tried to be intimidating while others clearly wanted the best person for the job. The pro to this process is that the people hired are a good cultural fit, although the turn over is high for this company.

    Interview Questions

    • During the skills test, there was a 24 hour turn around which was difficult because it was quite long. Unfortunately, there were so many interviews and it was so long ago that I don't remember specific questions.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application
