Quick and painless. Just ask you to show examples of consultative sales. They asked me to sell them a coffee machine. I continued to ask some open ended questions like how many people are you planning on providing coffee to? Etc. then I proceeded to state that I would recommend xuz machine based upon the answers that were provided. Very typical.

    Phone screening, in person 1 on 1 interview, then a panel interview. GOT HIT ON BY THE INTERVIEWER DURING THE PROCESS....DISGUSTING SEXUAL HARRASSMENT! The company are supposedly doing some type of investigation, I have provided tangible evidence this man continued to contact me for over a week after my 1 on 1 interview, he asked to see me before the panel interview, my communication with him was to get more information about the position and with hopes I would get the position. Two days after I reported the incident to TWC I GOT A REJECTION EMAIL, GO FIGURE!

    Interview

    Typical interview process for an account executive position. First interview goes into lots of detail about what the job is all about to see if you would be a fit. Second interview more information about the job and questions about your background,strengths and weaknesses. Overall fairly straight forward fairly relaxed process. They want to make sure you know it's not easy work.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Time Warner Cable (Milwaukee, WI) in November 2014.

    Interview

    Standard interview process. Meet with hiring manager. 2nd interview is with the hiring manager & director and/or multiple hiring managers. Lately, they have been doing group interviews.It was important to present myself as a professional & polished account executive. This interview requires a suit and tie. They did not do a phone interview to pre-screen. However, this is not the case for all interviewees.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Time Warner Cable (Columbus, OH) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty typical, I interviewed with the recruiter over the phone. She went over my resume and asked about my past work history. She asked the pretty standard behavioral questions.. Nothing too hard. At the end of the interview she stated that she would call or email me if I was going to move forward to the next interview. The next day I received an email telling me what date and time to meet (met within 2 days) had my face to face interview, and it went well. Got a call the same day asking if I would be willing to come in for a second interview. During that interview she went over the expectations of the job so that I knew what I was signing up for, as well as my background and how it could be successful in this position. I received a call the next day offering me the position.. Pending my background check and drug test

    The interview was broken up into 3 parts. First is with, the recruiter. Once, you get that accomplished, you interview with your manager. After that, you will interview with the director and he will drill you. If you are going to get hired, you will know right after the interview with the director. He will tell you if he would recommend you or not.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Time Warner Cable (Milwaukee, WI) in November 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process is quite lengthy. First, you must apply online, and if you do not receive an internal referral, good luck. If you apply online, your application will sit in the abyss of stagnant resumes, dead hopes, and wrecked dreams. Theatrics aside, I seriously recommend that you network with someone on Linkedin, and ask for a referral into the company.

    During the application process, there will be a VERY lengthy personality assessment. In order to pass this, you MUST make sure that all of your answers are consistent. You cant be decisive, analytical, direct, and passive all at the same time. Pick what your brand is going to be, and stick with it.

    Next, you have a phone interview with an HR recruiter, followed by a sit down 1:1 with the SMB manager, and a final leg with the Regional Director of Sales.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked for specific examples of real life situations that I have spent in B2B sales.   Answer Question
