    Software Sales Specialist Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at PFM (Philadelphia, PA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out to me asking if I would be interested in a Software Sales Specialist position, we then schedule an initial phone screen. At the end of the phone screen a phone call with the president was scheduled. After the phone screen with the president, two phone interviews were scheduled with two other members of the team, both called me extremely late, which was an inconvenience as I was taking the calls in between meetings with clients. After these two interviews, I was then asked to have another phone call with the president, it was at this point he decided to mention that they were changing the duties of the position as they felt the gear up time for the role would take a little longer than expected (six months). I was fine with this, as long as the end result was being a Software Sales Specialist, but I'm not sure why this wasn't mentioned until the fifth interview.

    Finally, a four hour long in person interview was scheduled. I was asked to prepare a 20 minute sales pitch for the interview. I met with the recruiter, president, founder, partner, and four different team members. Throughout the interview, the president continually called me the wrong name and did not have me present my sales pitch I had worked on. There was also another change to the position's duties, and they now claimed it would take a year and a half to get up to speed in the role. At the end of it, he asked me to "think long and hard" to come up with four reasons why PFM was the right place for me, and then email him a week later to schedule another interview. At this point it was time to cut the cord, six interviews with eight different people is enough to decide if you want to hire someone. I did not follow up as I felt this was turning into a waste of time. I understand it is a new division and they want to find the right fit, but there is a point when it becomes disrespectful to the interviewee.

    Interview

    4 interviews with multiple different project managers. They wanted references along with my transcripts and a writing sample. Great environment and you can tell everyone really works hard. Each interview was about 45 minutes long and they asked about typical interview questions and why you were interested in the position and what aspects made you qualify for the position.
