    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at IKON in July 2007.

    Interview

    IKON uses a three interview process. Your first interview is with a recruiter, second with the sales manager,
    and third is with the area sales manager. The first interview is more of a background interview, but your second really is more of a selling skills and you need ot make sure you are on your game. If you get to third just make sure you are confident in your skills and you should receive an offer.

    Account Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took a week. I interviewed at IKON (Providence, RI) in June 2007.

    Interview

    It took a little longer than I expected. I had my phone interview and because I had experience in the field they made a sales manager interview the next day. From there I met with a Director of Sales two days later. From there they made it known I was going to be hired. However it took the recruiter 30 days from there to schedule the drug test and get an offer letter. DOS was informitive and the boss I interviewed was great.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked me to be a customer to give a elevator pitch for IKON. He expected I did my homework on IKON   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I was able to negotiate. I had 3 years sales experience 2 in the same vertical market. Consider what you need to make year one with no experience and ask to see your territory. See what your first 18 months would bring in for lease expirations

    AE Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at IKON in October 2011.

    Interview

    Laid back initial interview that went suprisingly well. Was scared from the start when the regional manager said that he had been with the company for three years. I think that it was a great opportunity to move up quickly, but it seems as if the turnover rate is high.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at IKON in December 2010.

    Interview

    The process was fairly simple and consisted of writing out answers to a series of questions, a phone interview with an IKON recruiter, and then a 1 on 1 interview with the Sales Manager. There were not a lot of questions asked, more of a conversational type interview process. Just remember to close for the job if interview is for a sales position.
