    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ReachLocal (Austin, TX) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I was recruited by a fantastic local recruiter out of the dallas office. He found my profile on linkedin and the process started from there.
    The first step was a phone interview with the recruiter. The second step was a phone interview with the hiring manager. The third step was an in-person interview at a local coffee shop with the hiring manager. The 4th step was a phone interview with the Director of North America. The last step was an offer letter received a few days following the interview process.

    IMC (Internet Marketing Consultant) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at ReachLocal (Dallas, TX) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Ridiculous "personality profile" assessments and basic math and mind game tests followed by mandatory prerequisite interview prep that should be two weeks worth of training to learn their technology, the company, and how to present it. No support from the recruiters at all.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Interview process was detailed. Three phone interviews with recruiter who works for the company and a manager outside the area. Two face to face interviews, one with the area manager and regional manager. Also went through training for a week in Dallas...very thorough. Upper management used to be present for training but company has since gone through a big disconnect.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at ReachLocal in June 2013.

    I was contacted by a ReachLocal recruiter via LinkedIn. The recruiter was very upfront regarding the position.

I submitted a resume, completed an online application and took an online personality test. Although it may seem like a lot of steps it went very smoothly and I was never left to wonder where I stood.

    Internet Marketing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Plano, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at ReachLocal (Plano, TX) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and didn't receive a response until I contacted an employee to refer me into the recruiters. Phone interview w recruiter was very brief to verify relevance, and I was scheduled for an in-person with the Regional Sales Manager. They were flooded with interviewees at this time and it felt like a cattle call.

    Interview Questions

    • How many calls did you make per day at your last job? How many appointments did you set? How many appointments did you run? Why don't those numbers add up to your monthly number of meetings? Why didn't you make more sales?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No negotiation, and offer was through the recruiters instead of management.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at ReachLocal.

    Interview

    Interview and hiring process was extremely quick, as I'm sure the recruiter was ready to get his bonus. My recruiter was a very nice guy, but EXTREMELY dishonest in telling me what I could expect to earn.

    Applied online after a job in media fell through after a management change up and was called that same day for an interview. The second interview was in person with the Regional Sales Manager where he basically just talked to me (at me) for an hour. I barely got a word in. Mainly he wanted to see how many accounts you could bring in through personal connections. And he loved the sound of his voice, so he basically just took charge of the conversation. I had an interview with the North East Director of sales over the phone the next day and was hired the next. In all, it took less than a week for everything to happen.

    Interviews like this happen often in the regional offices because they are constantly firing people after only a few months or people are leaving on their own. There's an insane amount of employee turnover because it's really not all its cracked up to be.

    Interview Questions

    • They ask you if you understand the products. So do a lot of research if you want the job, and be ready to talk about any media sales experience you have.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    The negotiation phase wasn't very much. They asked me what I wanted in a salary and I told them, and they obliged. I might have been able to push for more, but to be honest, it was my first job in sales (and last) and I didn't have much presence to make demands.
