Sales and Marketing Associate Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Richmond, VA

Neutral Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Richmond, VA) in June 2017.

Interview

It was a short, 15 minute interview. She was very nice. Role is described as cold and warm calling mostly. You are there to generate revenue and have monthly sales goals. Said I would hear back next week. Appreciated how forthcoming she was about what the role entailed. It's not so glamorous cold calling, but the salary is decent for entry level.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    After I applied online through the company's career page, I was contacted two days later by a company representative. She asked for my availability for a 1st round phone interview within the next two weeks. After, we set a date about 1 week and a half after initial contact. The reviews of the phone interviews, here on glassdoor, prepared me for the interview style which is quick and straightforward. We spent about 25-30 minutes on the phone and the interviewer said that I would be contacted 5-10 business days after the recruiting team deliberated to be informed whether I move on to second round interviews. The interviewer was polite and did not spend a lot of time giving me feedback on my answers and moved on to the next answers which I think is the style of the interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    First round phone interview was fairly basic. The interviewer called me about an hour early. We talked about my background and the company. She seemed impressed with my back ground, but also gave off the vibe that it did not align with their company.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I had an on campus interview first, and met with an awesome recruiter who asked mainly behavioural questions, as well as a few fit questions.
    Next, I went into the DC office for a preview day, relatively short compared to other super days I have attended. We had a nice introduction, lunch with a current MA, and then two interviews- one 1:1, and another 2:1. Be prepared with questions for managers, as well as examples of experience communicating with executives

    Interview

    The process was quick because I was an extern. I got an automatic entry level interview. There were two people who interviewed me in 30-45 minute increments, and all the externs had an opportunity to shadow a sales and marketing associate already working in the company.

    I applied online. I interviewed at The Advisory Board Company (Washington, DC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    My first interview was rescheduled at the last minute which was a bit frustrating. The second went well but it felt like the interviewer was simply reading from a list of questions and not really listening to my responses.
