Business Development Representative Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at NetSuite (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

Interview

3 rounds of interviews. 1st round was a brief phone call screening and a few simple behavioral questions. 2nd round was over the phone again but was a lot more in-depth. It involved role-playing a cold-call and why netsuite/oracle questions. The interviewer really wanted to know the true reasons of your intent. 3rd round was an on-site interview. Honestly, probably the most fun part of the interview as the office is filled with amazing people and the interviews were very conversational.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at NetSuite (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    The first round was just a screening call from an HR person, next was supposed to be Skype but ended up being phone. There was a role play scenario where I sold a coffee shop to a new customer. Then they flew me up for an in person interview. I had to give a pitch about myself to a room full of people, then talked to 4 other people and shadowed a current BDR. The people were nice and responsive, but I was a little annoyed because 3 of the people that interviewed me had never even looked at my resume. One of them also said the F word in the interview which I thought was very unprofessional.

    They put me up in a really nice hotel and paid for my Ubers. Seemed like a fun place to work and everyone there talked about how great their culture was. The position doesn't seem like the greatest but it's entry level and it seems like you can move laterally pretty easily after a few years.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at NetSuite.

    Interview

    I was emailed to set up an initial phone interview within a week of applying. I was told that the position I'd applied for was already filled but that I could apply for a different position that already had a few people ahead of me. I went ahead with the interview anyway. It was very laid back. The interview was really easy and it felt like more of a conversation than an interview. He explained that it would be important to ask 4-5 questions about the position for my next interview.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at NetSuite (Austin, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    When I received the first call, the woman I spoke too was very hard to understand making the interview much harder to get through due to the fact that I was constantly asking for the recruiter to repeat herself for me.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at NetSuite in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process consisted of three straight forward rounds of interviews. The overall process was efficient and pleasant with no surprises.

    First was a brief phone screening with a recruiter to see if you were a good fit for the position. This round consisted of questions about your resume, why you want to be in sales, and very general questions.

    The second round was a thirty minute Skype interview with a manager. During this interview you are asked to give a sales pitch about a fake coffee shop. You also answer more behavioral questions and focus on your potential for a sales position. Know who you are as a person and why you want to be in sales and that you know what it takes to be in sales.

    Third interview is an on site interview. During this interview you meet with current BDR's, account executive, other managers, and shadow a BDR. More behavioral questions are asked, questions about your qualifications for the position and why you want to work for NetSuite. Be prepared to do a short presentation about why you want to work for NetSuite.

    Everyone was extremely helpful and nice during the interview process. The people are genuine and truly interested in who you are and getting to know you. Confidence is key during the interviews!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at NetSuite.

    Interview

    Took two weeks. For me, the first interviewer was out of Denver. She was very polite and friendly. My second interview, however, was a totally different story.

    The second interview is a video interview over Hirevue. My interviewer was late and very short, he was out of Chicago. Immediately after the mock sales pitch section of the video interview, the fire alarm went off. Obviously this wasn't his fault and he told me they'd email me about setting up a new time. No problem. However, about 10 minutes later he called me and asked to continue the interview via phone. Again, no problem. In this section, however, he only asked me three questions. It seemed clear he felt as though I was wasting his time as he was again very short. Then it was my turn to ask the questions. Each one I asked, he gave me an answer in as few words as possible. For instance, I asked what the culture was like. He responded "It's typical for the industry". That's it. The entire interview, including the hirevue part and the phone part totaled about 15 to 20 minutes. I prepared for about 6 hours the night before. Biggest joke and waste of time I've ever participated in. In the end, he was so short and quick to get off the phone that I couldn't even ask for an email to follow up. Even if I did get an offer, I would NEVER take it. What an absolute joke. I knew that they have people review the hirevue tapes before they move people forward, so it was immediately clear when he called me that he was never serious about hiring me. Good thing I have other offers.
