Account Executive Interview

Easy Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at NetSuite.

Interview

Had a 20-30 minute conversation with recruiter. She was unusually harsh on my background/experience to the point where I wondered why they had reached out to me at all. When I let her know that I was actually just hoping to learn more about NetSuite and how I could be successful there, she transitioned into full sales-pitch mode, throwing out all kinds of random sales growth numbers. It was an odd conversation that left me disinterested - I declined next steps almost immediately.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at NetSuite (Dallas, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    There were two phone interviews with HR staff, then on-site with hiring manager, then phone interview with VP. Maybe 4 weeks from start of process to hire. It went fast.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NetSuite.

    Interview

    The interview process was a little choppy in that one of the initial recruiters I worked with was not terribly helpful but after that it was great. People were proactive, helpful, and courteous.

    Negotiation

    The initial offer was well below what I expected or could take to join Netsuite but in the end I found the company generous and accommodating. I wanted to work here and I think the final outcome was more to my benefit. Grateful for this.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NetSuite in November 2013.

    Interview

    I initially inverviewed with NetSuite earlier this year, but the timing did not work out. In my most recent interview I had a 1.5 hour lunch with the hiring manager, in which we reconnected from our previous discussion. I had already been interviewing with a number of other companies so the hiring manager just cut right to the chase and said they would like to make me an offer, based on the previous interviews and conversations that we had.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at NetSuite (Boston, MA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Completely disorganized! Calls from inept recruiters with no follow up and ZERO information about the potential role. They could not answer basic questions. 2 months pass and get another call from the recruiter claiming they were still trying to schedule a call with the hiring manager. Really?

    The interview call is finally scheduled with the hiring manager(who had the personality of a doorknob) and was asked how the territory would be approached. How do you answer that without knowing about 1.The role 2.Territory 3.Vertical 4.Company size target 5.ANYTHING. The hiring manager also had a very condescending attitude about the position I currently hold....which by the way is at a much larger company!

    Terrible prep from recruiting team. Thanks.

Was told there was an allowance for cell phone, nope. company issued blackberry, was told 80% of reps hit goal, closer to 50% or less. Was told by manager about cold calling for lead generation then asked a rep about it and they said they never cold called

    Straightforward and standard initial process, firstly application then contact , discussions with the Recruiter followed by a phone Interview- this Interview conducted with HR. That's about it really. The process was relatively simple.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NetSuite.

    Interview

    3 phone interviews - hr, hiring manager, director. HR was pretty generic and asked qualifying questions to see if I had the capacity/experience for the job. Had a great conversation with the hiring manager, who was impressed with my background. The director didn't go so well. Lot of objections - which I handled well (and on the spot) but never fully connected. Director has final say, of course, and no offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing unexpected. Talked about my background and lots of questions on my entrepreneurial experience.   Answer Question

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NetSuite in May 2010.

    Interview

    I had an initial interview with a recruiter which quickly progressed to an internal HR recruiter for a detailed 2 hour phone interview. From there I was asked to have a 1-1 interview with the Regional Sales Manager as I was "the perfect candidate". The interview was very disorganized and unprofessional and I was asked to interview with his #1 AE who would be my peer. He reviewed my resume and was clearly intimidated. He spent the next 45 minutes telling me how much I would not be happy working there because I was used to landing much bigger deals and they generally don't hire people with previous sales experience. I returned to complete my interview with the RSM who wanted me to start immediately and would have a job offer to me by the end of the next business day. After 2 days of silence I contacted the HR Recruiter and was told an offer was in the making, however the RSM was on vacation for the week and it would be next week before I would receive anything. The next week came and I never heard back.
    Face to face interview was unprofessional from start to finish. The RSM had never been in a Sales or management position prior to being hired as RSM. If you are a seasoned/successful professional Sales Executive you will not find yourself welcome here.
