    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.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp.

    Interview

    First was a phone interview, then an in person interview at the office with two different hiring managers, then another phone interview with the recruiter. All of these were extremely conversational and flowed easily, unlike other interviews I've been on. After this process I got the offer on another phone call. Overall, it was a Very good interview process they weren't trying to trick me.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp.

    Interview

    1.) Be very patient, this interview process is long - but doable
    2.) Be coachable, and have a passion for sales and a competitive environment

    1st interview was a quick phone screen with a sales representative, probably around 15 minutes - asked really basic questions about why you want to work for yelp

    Next, I got a phone call about a week later to set up a Skype interview - this was scheduled about a month later. During the Skype interview, the role plays were important - the first role-play was difficult, the sales manager was really negative, and was saying no to a lot of what I had to say. We did this twice, and the second time i made sure to ask more questions and make more of a conversation. She also asked several behavioral questions about experiences I faced in past jobs and in college. The second sales manager did a similar role play, and it was a lot smoother. I only had to do it once, and I got positive feedback. After this, I was told I would hear back in 2 weeks.

    In two weeks, I had another interview with the recruiter I had been emailing back and forth with since day 1. This is mainly a time to ask any questions about the role, and talk about your experience with the role plays. After this, she scheduled a phone call for a decision during the next week. Then an offer was made, and a week later - I got a tour of the office and got a e-mailed offer as well.
