    Global Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Incisive Media (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    I went through a recruiter, but my first interview was over the phone with the Director of U.S. Sales. It was a basic interview, describe your work experience. Asked me if I knew about the IT Channel, which I did, but not fully. Before ending the first interview, he told me he would like me to have another conversation. However, after my first interview, I heard nothing for over 2 weeks. Finally, I heard back to schedule another call and found out the first guy I spoke with is no longer with the company. So, for my second call, I spoke with the Group Publishing Director. Pretty much same interview as I had with the first call. Lastly, I had a presentation over Skype and final questions and thoughts on my part. The next day I received an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Incisive Media (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I had two or three interviews with the HR and the manager. They were just casual conversations. They took place a while ago so the company's interview process may have changed.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Incisive Media.

    Interview

    Interviewed with the positions direct supervisor overseas in London via phone and then made it to the second interview process in their New York office face to face with their H.R. person. The appointment was requested on a certain day and time via email from their H.R. rep and I confirmed the date and time. When I showed up for the interview he said he was not expecting me and said he was to busy to speak with me and that we would have to reschedule. The drive was 1 hour and 45 minutes plus tolls and parking as i explained to him. He still was not going to meet with me and again stated he was too busy to talk. His actions and attitude show a complete lack of professionalism and is the best window or "glassdoor" into the mentality of the company and how it is run. Needless to say I wished him a nice day and walked out without rescheduling.

    Initial phone call whereby they ask things to get a better feel about you, they asked:

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Incisive Media (London, England (UK)) in May 2012.

    Interview

    The process was two hour long face to face interviews talking through CV and experience. And then completing a marketing timeline task.

    Not too challenging and was actually quite enjoyable.

    Good to talk about relevant experience to the role in question as this is something they look for.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Incisive Media.

    Interview

    Disjointed interview process. The initial interview was held as an informal chat with the hiring manager. It became clear that there was no role available at the time, as they were about to offer another candidate. I was approached 6 weeks later, for a formal final interview and sales roleplay with the hiring manager, alongside another director. An offer was made over 2 weeks later, after yet another candidate had turned down the position. I felt like I was a second best candidate, and that the employer was desperate to make a hire. I was concerned that other candidates had already turned down the role. After two brief disjointed interviews and long delays, I never fully understood the role. I felt that I didn't connect with or understand the product, and wasn't inspired by the offer or the work culture. The contracts were all cloud-based, and I was unable to review the paperwork again once it had been signed. I decided that, while committed to the job, that I wanted to take a short sabbatical between jobs, that would add 4 weeks to my start date. Incisive Media refused to consider a delayed start date and the offer was withdrawn at this point. I feel like I had a lucky escape!
