Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
Declined Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

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

Interview

Had a brief phone interview just asking about background information. Came in a few days later for an hour long interview. It consisted of a group tour, watching a few videos on the account executive role, and then a one-on-one interview to finish up. This included more questions about my background, a few quick role plays, and a chance for me to ask questions. I received the job offer but did not accept after finding a better fit at a different company. (Also, the reviews for this position were veeery consistently bad, and I didn't want to be a part of that)

Interview Questions

  • Role play where I had to tell someone who has never heard of Yelp about what they do and how ads on yelp could help their business. Not bad at all... interviewer gave me feedback, I had a chance to do it again.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Horrible. Interviewer was unprofessional did not listen to my answers and constantly felt rushed. Also they make you
    Start out in a group interview and then it breaks away into individual interviews with people that would potentially be your boss.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Yelp (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    The interview wasn't bad, the only thing that caught me off guard was "What can you tell me about yourself that isn't on your resume?" but other than that, the interviewer was very kind and explained the position very well then asked me quesitons about what she just said

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online on the careers page after being told by a friend that they were looking to take on college grads. I immediately received an email telling me how interested they were in interviewing with me and to select a time to speak on the phone. I selected my time slot only to have been given the wrong date and have the interviewer "call" (I didn't receive a call or voicemail) at the wrong time. After rescheduling I spoke on the phone with someone for 15 minutes or so which seemed very rushed but was told through another email afterwards that I was able to schedule an in person interview. The application to phone interview process took about two weeks. I then had to wait an entire month to have my in person interview. I met with the person who initially emailed me back about the role and was given a tour. We went on to watch videos and have a discussion about the role and product. I was initially supposed to have a group interview but it ended up just being me. I had a positive experience with the person from the tour but that was quickly diminished when I had my "real" interview with one of the account managers. Before even getting to the interview he knew he was not interested in hiring me based on reading my resume. After making a big deal about my name pronunciation for two minutes we began the interview. He started off the interview in a very condescending tone going through my resume. When he began asking the official questions he questioned every answer I gave to him as if I had stupid answers even though I gave explanations to every answer I gave prior to him asking "Really, is that what you think will be the most challenging?" "So you would do this?" "Idk, if you think that's ... Blah blah" . However, towards the end of the interview and role-playing I felt like we had gotten back on track because he had lightened up and became less offensive. Overall he was very unprofessional and I have no idea why he is responsible for doing interviews. I get that Yelp has a casual vibe but trying to have a debate about everything and nitpicking at answers because it's not the answer that you would have gone with is just weird. If you're not interested simply take the answer and get over with the interview. The process with him was supposed to take 30 minutes but it took 45.

    Interview Questions

    • A plethora of questions that I'm sure he had not asked others. +Role-playing about meeting a friend on the train who has launched a business and needs advertising.   Answer Question

    Application

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

    Interview

    First was a phone interview, then a face to face, then another follow up phone interview.

    The process was smooth and up until the final follow up phone call. I was told I received the position and was scheduled for a background check and given all of the information to accept the job. On the phone, the recruiter was basically telling me this position isn't for everyone, almost like she was telling me not to accept it. I became uncertain, considering it is a cold calling only position, so I took a week to decide. After another phone call I accepted the position, but then later was declined in an email. What a joke.
