Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in January 2018.

Interview

Phone interview, in person interview, final phone interview. Initial phone interview was very simple and quick, asked a few general questions and told me about the position. Made it very clear that this was a cold calling job. Scheduled in person interview at the end of the phone call. In person interview was in a group setting at first, where we took a tour of the office and watched a video showing the day in the life of an account executive at Yelp. The second part was a one on one interview with an account manager which lasted about 30 minutes. A week later I received an email scheduling a final phone interview with offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Yelp (San Francisco, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Phone interview then onsite. They definitely test your EQ with their style of interviewing. Good cop bad cop, tough, uncomfortable questions. Role play of how you would open call a business/pitch. Situational/behavioral questions. Questions about my previous work experience and how it ties into this role. What my goals are etc. Overall good experience, left with a good feeling and got the job. Been here for 2+ years and still here and still growing w/in company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yelp (San Francisco, CA) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Was referred through a friend and a week later I did a phone interview. Received great feedback after the interview. The following day, they scheduled me for an in-person interview.
    First 30 mins of the interview was in a group setting where you watched a video of one of the associates making cold-calls. The next part was a 1 on 1 interview with a sales manager. You role play and try to convince them to use Yelp for their business. I didn't get an offer, however, the recruiter offered to give me a call and provide some more feedback. A+ for the interviewing experience all around!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yelp in February 2018.

    Interview

    The first interview was over the phone. It was easy and only about 20 minutes long. It was mores informational about what the job entails and what you should expect from it. Some questions were asked, but they were simple. The next interview was a Skype interview. The first part was in a group setting where you learned more about the account executive position at Yelp. You were able to give feedback during this time or ask questions if need be. Afterwards, there was a 30-45 minute one-on-one Skype interview with a sales manager. I was asked a handful of questions, but they were not very difficult. The hardest part was the role playing part. My question was, "Pretend you're an account executive at Yelp and you meet a business owner on the streets of New York. Tell them about Yelp and how it could benefit his/her business." I did this role play three times, receiving feedback on each one. My interviewer was so friendly and definitely wanted to see me succeed at this. It's important to take the feedback you get and implement it ASAP to show you can learn from your mistakes. After this, I got an email saying they enjoyed my Skype interview and that someone from HR would call to discuss my interview. After this phone call, I was told that I would find out if I was hired in about 2 weeks. I'm still in the waiting process.
