    Technical Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Sinch (Atlanta, GA) in January 2019.

    Interview

    In late December 2018, I was contacted by a staffing agency recruiter for this position. He mentioned it was for a Technical Account Manager. The recruiter stressed the need to have skills with Linux. I answered the majority of the screening questions he had correctly.
    In January 2019, I received feedback from the recruiter that a phone interview was requested with the hiring manager.
    Due to the location of this person, the call was done via Skype.
    The conversation went well, the usual position overview and discussion of my experience.
    The recruiter contacted me following the phone interview to schedule an on-site interview.

    Prior to my on-site interview, I was given a tentative schedule of people with whom I was to meet. Although there was some modifications, I met with a total of eight people, including one out of state via phone.
    I met with people in HR, operations and sales, including some at the executive level.
    The entire on-site was about 2.5 hours.
    Two of the manager in operations interviewed me regarding my technical ability. Across the interview, emphasis was put on customer contact. I asked about databases and SQL and it was mentioned that at the Technical Account Manager level, queries were executed using an interface. One of the persons who interviewed me was a support engineer, working at the level of support where I am used to working.
    The managers that interviewed me in operations. Emphasis was also put on customer contact and sense of urgency. Which although I have customer-facing experience, I sense they believe I did not have enough.
    Regarding Linux, my advice is that it would be helpful to know how to use awk and sed.

    Although I desired the position, in retrospect, I probably would have become bored with the position or in some areas felt like I was technically overqualified.
    I do at least appreciate receiving feedback that I was not selected for the position on the same day of the interview.

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Sinch.

    Interview

    I should have known there was an issue when the departmental Manager could not take the time to fly in to interview me. The HR Manager, provided a basic intetview. He was more concerned about how I handled stress and multi-tasking situations. If the hiring Manager cannot make a trip into the office to meet with you, decline any offers.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sinch (Sandy Springs, Fulton, GA).

    Interview

    Phone screening then Skype interview to see if you're a good fit. If you pass you get called to a face to face interview. Recruiter informed me I passed to the next phase and at the end they chose a referral after postponing the face to face interview by a week. For future purposes please tell the candidates earlier if they did or didn't make it instead of getting their hopes up.

    Easy Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at Sinch.

    Interview

    The first step of the process was an interview, where the interviewer asked general questions, as well as questions related to SEO. After a week, I was sent a project description which I had 5 days to complete. The project included 2 tasks: writing an article, improving an online campaign . After completing and sending the project, it took 2 weeks for them to respond that they wouldn't proceed with me to the following step. I asked for more information without success.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Sinch (Lund, Skåne (Sweden)).

    Interview

    There is no process actually sadly. For some they follow a set of steps, for some others they do some other steps.

    Like they takes a very hard Aptitude tests intending for a candidate to fail.
    They did not verify the technical ability, nor any HR or Personality aspect. If you fail to do the hard Aptitude tests, you are rejected straight away .

    Moreover , I had to wait 15 min for first interview as the hiring Manager was in another meeting.

    My question is Are those 20 set of questions which you might not be familiar the main factor ? The role was as a web developer and I have 12 years and I got 2 offers later on in companies as big as Sinch. Very poor process !! They actually did not want to hire me!!
