    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Meraki (San Francisco, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Phone call with recruiter (Amy Brown is awesome and the best recruiter I've ever worked with) followed by another phone call with a sales director. Next, an onsite interview with 4 different interviews each with a focus on a particular topic. This was a seamless process because Amy provided guidance in order to do well and she was very transparent. Some feedback for folks looking to join - really know the products, the value prop, and be able to tell a story on your previous successful deals.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Meraki (San Francisco, CA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The whole experience was amazing! The Meraki recruiting team is as professional and responsive as it gets. Shout-out to my Recruiter Katy and my Coordinator Amanda, they are the kind of people that set candidates up for success.

    The process for me was as follows:

    - Recruiting Event (happy hour): you meet with recruiters, hiring managers and team members. Bring your A game. People are very approachable, be ready to answer: why sales and why Meraki?

    - Final 2hr On-Site interview with 4 segments divided by topic: Sales Aptitude, Relationship Building, Culture Fit and Technical Aptitude. Close every single interview, you are in sales after all.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Meraki (San Francisco, CA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Received an email via a Meraki Recruiter because my information was sent via a recruiting agency. We talked for 15-20 minutes and she let me know about a happy hour event Meraki was hosting the next day. The neworking event is at a bar and both Merkai along with Webex employees are there. Make sure to speak with the employees, hiring managers and get their insights. Speak about the products along with why you would be a great fit.
    100% deals are closed via partner and 70-80% are hitting their quota, which is great. It is an easy sell once in, since the products are amazing.
    After that step, you are notified within a few days whether an in-person meeting will follow. Interview 1 for Coachability /Adaptability /Culture Fit, Interview #2: Relationship building, Interview #3: Sales, and Interview #4: Technical Aptitude. Both Meraki's and agency recruiter will help you prepare. Make sure to prepare fully. Know competitors for each individual product that Merkai has and make sure to know each of them.
    Speak about your numbers, sales process.
    At the end they will check past 2 years of W2, recent paycheck, have you fill out a huge form and get references.
    Overall great communication and best of luck!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Meraki (San Francisco, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with recruiter to determine you meet minimum requirements then call with sales manager. Know your #s, process and be able to give a spiel on your product knowledge. Based on that he decides whether to move you forward or not. The onsite was with 4 managers 30 mins each. The recruiter is super concise and helpful in prepping you. Literally prepare for what she tells you bec that will be covered. This was the hardest interview I've had among the 4 interviews I've done in sales. I was drained and exhausted by the end. But it was worth it bec I ended up getting the job.
