    Branch Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Orkin (Tampa, FL) in March 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the Branch Manager for an interview, the statement on the phone by the manager was that exceptional sales people make over 100K. I went to the interview and all the questions were standard and I was offered a job. I reveiwed the compensation plan, the business expense policy, and the ramp plan. The Ramp plan is very poor, 60 days to get upto speed to make good commissions is very short, the expense policy is substandard. I do believe you can make 100K annually selling however it will take 6 months to build up the pipeline. I turned down the offer.

    Interview Questions

    • How would I attack/plan the territory to maximize results   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    The Ramp up policy was too short for success and the expense policy is too small for what they expect

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Orkin.

    Interview

    Horribly long process and full of steps like a meeting with the company shrink (Yes, a contracted psychologist). The company justifies the long process but for the position it seems unreasonable and exceeds the expectation for what is reasonable.

    Reasons for Declining

    All in all, it was not a good fit.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Orkin in November 2016.

    Interview

    Terribly long process in my case over four months. Pay for your own travel! I traveled many miles, bought a lot of gas and used two vacation days. Met with Psychologist told a great fit for the company after three interviews comes to final interview. Interview scheduled three weeks in advance and the Regional manager never calls to nail down the time after I have already used a day of vacation to drive another two hours out of my way. Then lies to me that he thought I called to schedule and never showed up. How is that possible, someone by the same name called you to schedule an interview? Unbelievable that at that level he was incapable of scheduling an interview and unable to discern two candidates? Very unprofessional to say the least and not someone I would ever want to work for. Lesson learned if you have to pay your way to interview it’s not worth your time. Steer clear of management with Orkin!

    Account Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Orkin.

    Interview

    So this position was in Chicago. We met at Starbucks with the branch manager. From there they called me and told me I had the job and that’s when you officially fill out the application. They run your background check and from there you go on a ride along which is cool! I met with the district manager who was a total bad guy. They told me I had the job and the next day to me they went with another candidate. The sad part is I put in my two weeks at my current job. This company has no class for that and you don’t play with people like this. They look you in the eye and lie to you. No remorse and the gm knew I quit my job because he called and told me I had the job. Old school company! You cannot have a beard but it seems there is a good chance to make money if you know how to build a good pipeline. thanks Krugman

    Interview

    It was a short and nice interview, I was hired on the spot and started a couple weeks later because I was waiting on the background check and drug screen to come back. Most of the people were easy to work with. It was a overall nice experience.

    Tim was very kind, easy to talk to and not full of cheese like some of the other places I've interviewed recently. He asked if the phones bothered me and told me the company didn't have much of a turnover rate, which is important.
