Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY).

Interview

First, a phone call for 15 minutes. I was asked to role play on my phone call, which normally doesn't occur. However, I got asked to the second round. The second round was a Skype interview where I spoke to two sales managers for 30 minutes about role playing, the company, the atmosphere, etc. Then, I had a third phone call.

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Yelp (Phoenix, AZ) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Started with a phone call screening. I turned down the second interview when I realized this is almost completely a sales position. The base pay is 32k and you do not have the opportunity to earn commission for several months (because you're training). If you can go that long with that low of a base salary and risk the commission life, I can see this being a great place to grow. They provide great training and there seemed to be lots of perks.

    Reasons for Declining

    The base pay is really low for a degree required job and I could not go (potentially) five months with that pay before I qualified for commission.

    Interview

    I applied online and interviewed over the phone. Nothing stood out as unusual. Most of the interview involves making sure you understand that the position includes 80-90 cold calls per day. I was moved to the second round of interviews but declined.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and received and email the next day to schedule a phone interview two weeks later. After the call (where I was asked about my interest in yelp and knowledge about the position), I was told that I would be contacted by a recruiter to set up an on site interview that would happen about a week later. At the office, I interviewed with two nice managers who made the process very comfortable. They were mainly making sure I understood the difficulties of the position my sling questions relating to how I would handle the high volume of calls and rejection. Two days after the interview O received an email informing me that I was being moved forward and scheduled another phone call with a recruiter two days later. During this call the recruiter basically did the same things in a shortened version (making sure I understood the position and was up for the challenge. At the end of the call she extended an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by the recruiter a day or two after applying on the website. We had a 15-20 minute phone call and then she scheduled me to come in for an in person interview the next week. I arrived and there were three other interviewees there. We all took a tour of the facilities (very nice with a large kitchen, pool table, and a coffee bar), then we watched a video on "The Day in the Life of an Account Executive" and answered some questions form the recruiter. She stated this portion was not an evaluation but I think it was. Then, we all split up and spoke to a manager individually. My interviewer was a young woman who was pretty friendly and personable and asked me some questions. Then we did a role play twice. Then, she walked me to the door.
