    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at WordStream.

    Interview

    Initially referred by an internal person to the team. Recruiter rescheduled the first call then was 5 minutes late on the phone screen. Generic interview questions were asked regarding my ability to handle
    Transactional sales cycle. No red flags came up and my
    Experience matches what they claim to be looking for. Recruiter seemed disengaged and I would have preferred to speak with someone on the Sales team. She claimed to be a part of the customer support recruitment team but helped out with sales sometimes. Just kept telling me how “fun” it is on the sales floor and how high the energy is. Quota was $3500 MRR only so not sure if i was deemed to be too expensive before we even spoke about salary ranges.... very disappointed with the recruiting process and Wordstream should have stronger first points of contact with candidates to maintain their high rating.

    Customer Success Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WordStream.

    Interview

    HR very disorganized and missed my call several times. Recruiter was very pretentious over the phone and has a fairytale of the ideal candidate in her head and doesn't care about what you say if it doesn't match up. I manage over a billion dollars in asset but if you don't manage 200 accounts for Bob and Sally, it doesn't matter. HR soloy dialed in on numbers alone and doesn't understand there are other ways to measure success. I make 10k more than the role I was applying for and still was told I should look into more entry level ones than the one I applied for.

    The interview process began with a phone call with an employee of the department. It then materialized into an in-person interview at their office. The process was simple and well defined.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at WordStream.

    Interview

    WordStream's behavior in this process was absolutely disgusting. I passed through a quick phone screen with a team member. Five days later, I was informed that I was moving on to the next round, which would be a Skype interview with the team. They requested availability, and I provided it. Six days later, they respond saying that I am no longer being considered for the position. This was an incredible waste of time.
    WordStream should be ashamed.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WordStream in April 2019.

    Interview

    I think is a horribly inconsiderate move for a company to conduct a phone interview, tell the interviewer that they've moved onto the next step of the process: a face to face group interview with the team, ask for the applicant's availability for the next week, not respond for almost a week, then turn the applicant down in a short email that barely explains anything. The email didn't even say that they had already filled the position and it doesn't make sense for a company to ask for availability then reject you.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at WordStream (Nashua, NH) in June 2018.

    Interview

    Lengthy in person interview that lasted four hours. Technical questions were simple scenario based and you could use UML. While they said they were open to flexibility in work schedule, in reality they were not.

    Customer Support Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WordStream (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    I should mention that I actually applied for a different position at WordStream, however due to their selection of someone else, I didn't get the job. That being said, they did say that they'd keep me in mind for the future if another position opens up - which turned out to be true!

    Two weeks later it was clear to me that I had made an impression when they reached out to me to see if I'd be interested in applying for a position that had just opened up. I said yes and asked for a call with the manager to talk about the position in more depth. After a call with them, a 2-hour interview, and an informal video chat "test" of my knowledge, I was asked for references and ultimately given an offer.

    Overall, I'm seriously impressed with the way everyone at WordStream carries and presents themselves. Between the flexibility of the recruiting staff, the friendliness of everyone I talked to (including a Senior VP!), and the professionalism of everyone I had the pleasure of interacting with I'm truly counting down the days until I start.
