Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
Declined Offer
Negative Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Johnson Controls (Chicago, IL).

Interview

Spoke with recruiter. Next, an in person interview with the district sales manager. The interview was very casual and consisted mostly of him selling me Johnson Controls. A few behavioral questions which are easily answered using the STAR method. After the interview I was told I would be contacted within a month. Pleasantries were exchanged a few times during that month. However, when it came to the one month mark I was already offered other jobs and they could not give me an answer. I accepted another job based on the fact they seemed unorganized. This proved true when 3 weeks after the one month mark they called me back to offer me the job with an acceptance period for only 2 days. Had to decline. Unprofessional process and the position appears to be high turnover.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Johnson Controls in March 2012.

    Interview

    Had one interview with regional sales manager, basically him selling me on the job.

    Negotiation

    I asked for more they said take it or leave it. They did give me a 3k/month guarantee but that turned out to be useless because it was a draw against commissions earned and I earned more than the guarantee.
