    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Darmstadt (Germany)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pitney Bowes (Darmstadt (Germany)).

    Interview

    The intro to the sales organization how it is and where they wanna go was from the beginning very buzzy described and spongy, especially when talking about the business apart of key accounts.
    When trying to understand how exactly the internal sales teams' territories and goals are interwoven with each other in order to understand the success factor and product scope might lead to compensation accorded to the to be assigned role, the sales area leader pictured a non-explaining structure- but this was exactly the point, the compensation wasn't for the whole portfolio and the territory (??). The only component which was clearly excluded was Location Intelligence.
    When asked for key sucess drivers with Customer Engagement (bunch of single tools) at existing local customers or new wins, there was no clear answer on the pitch, but existing "historic" key accounts where repeated mainly. Finally, I wanted to know the relevance of the flagship tool "Interactive Video" (which is nice, no question) as I still didn"t understand the proven entry point for a prospect to purchase neccessarely any product mix then to realize a type of Customer Engagement suite (which overlaps regularly somehow with components of existing core systems from other vendors) - again no answer explains a strategy. Btw, selling such suites is neccessary to hit quota.
    The guy left the room for approx. 15min in order to let me watch the marketing video (!?) at youtube. When he came back, we've been finished soon with the interview...

    Summary: Employer, it would be great if you appreciate concrete questions from candidates and their motivation to qualify the job very well as they have to carry a quota and need to be experts in qualification of prospects in daily business as well. If you want a CO-WORK, please be prepared to answer basic questions concretely as well and don't expect dumb jerks as interview partner. If you cant explain the USP within three sentences and how often you've been able to position sweet spots of your shop to install any CE suite...

    Interview Questions

    • Experiences with complex sales and wins at big enterprises, verticals, go to market in details, motivation for the job. Nothing unusual. The meeting partner didn't have lots of questions as the dialogue started to struggle when I wanted to know their concrete structure, proven sales pitch, compensation rules.   1 Answer

    As someone who did the hiring and interviews, or someone who was interviewed? Hiring would be digging into the past troubles and how they were handled. Trouble shooting for any thing is as important as knowing your product.

    Interview

    3 month process, several phone interviews, video submission, company underbid salary cap for location role is held, met with several executives and hiring manager and other employee.

    Sales Support Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Sydney (Australia)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Pitney Bowes (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Interview process was quite good, HR asked the proper questions, the interview was a bit difficult for the position probably HR was being extra careful. Again minus thing was HR did not discuss pay until the very last minute. It's a bit weird, that the HR did not give me a bit of time to negotiate. The HR did not ask what my pay expectation was, pay seems to be quite an issue in this company.
