    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Irvine, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Houzz (Irvine, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    First you get a phone interview, then two in person interviews. The first two interviews are basic and easy. The last interview they have you do a mock phone call where you try to sell the company program to a business.
    I don't know exactly what they are looking for because I have 3 years of sales experience and I know other people they hired there that had zero sales experience and got the job. I'm assuming maybe they want fresh people right out of school that they can mold easily because I was pretty much overqualified for the position and didn't get an offer.

    Analyst Interview

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Telphone interview followed by an interview with a Sales Manager. The third interview was with another Sales Manager who looked like she really didn't want to be there. Plus, she was dressed really casually. I understand the dress code is laid back, but maybe if you're conducting interviews, you can dress up a little bit Third interview and she asked me to go over my resume. Thought it was going to be a little bit more in-depth than that.

    Customer Service Coordinator Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Houzz (Irvine, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I was approached by Kirstyn Sullivan on LinkedIn asking if I would be interested in a position at Houzz. I agreed and we scheduled a call to introduce ourselves and see if it would be a good fit. After she told me more about the company and position and I gave my past work experience, we both felt like it would be a good idea to move along. I then had my first in person interview which went well and lead to the role play interview. We weren't able to do the role play interview in person, however, we later did it over the phone the following week.

    Phone interview. First thing she asked me was about my education and then my previous work experience. I thought they were going to ask me a lot more details about my school background or to tell them a little bit about myself but it was cut pretty short.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Houzz (Irvine, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had a total of three interviews (phone screen, Skype interview with a hiring manager, then final Skype interview + role play with a different hiring manager). The first two interviews were extremely positive and I was very affirmed and encouraged by both interviewers. During the final interview, they ask more difficult questions about why you're a good fit for sales, if you want to do sales long term, and how comfortable you are being measured up against a monthly quota. I then did a mock sales pitch where I had to convince the hiring manager to create a profile on Houzz (as if he were a kitchen & bath remodeling business). The hiring manager was difficult to read, and ultimately they didn't offer me the position because they "chose to move forward with another candidate."

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Houzz (Irvine, CA).

    Interview

    I applied through LinkedIn and got a response a week later for a phone interview. The phone interview was about 45 minutes long and was very pleasant. I received an email the next day requesting an face to face interview. I missed the first face to face and they were nice enough to reschedule! Went to the face to face and the woman who interviewed me was very pleasant as well! The interview lasted about an hour and a half. I was then requested to come in for a role play and another interview. The role play was a little daunting since I've never done one but in the end it went pretty ok! A few days later they requested to do a last and final phone interview and received an offer two days later!
