    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online. Was contacted for a 15 minute phone interview and asked to come in for an in-person interview. I went to the New York office and was given a tour and a small presentation with a group of other applicants. Then, we split into individual interviews where they asked to role play scenario where I had to sell Yelp advertising to a neighbor with a small business at a barbecue.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in July 2017.

    Interview

    Submitted resume (end of June 2017)
    Emailed back and forth with recruiting team (July 2nd 2017)
    Brief phone interview (July 11th 2017)
    In-office interview (July 25th 2017)
    Decision (July 27th 2017)

    The reason I rated my interview with Yelp as a negative experience is detailed above. I spent an entire month going back and fourth with recruitment. The process took a very long time, and granted it was for the NYC office which I'm sure is in high demand for talent. It was a disappointing ending when after all the effort I had put into my interview process, I didn't get an offer. I left the in-office interview feeling very confident, the manager had even said "You'll definitely be hearing back from us!"
    I felt like things had gone over so well! But I digress. I don't believe this is any type of entry level position, even though they offer training. Have experience in cold-calling sales and you'll probably get the job. Although I don't have cold-calling experience, I have a lot of leadership experience and years of sales exposure. I guess I wasn't the right fit. In conclusion, be prepared to invest a lot of time in the interview experience and don't assume an outcome.

    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.

    Average Interview

    Application

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

    Interview

    Applied for the position and received an email about a week later to schedule a phone interview for the following week. The initial email from the recruiter included information about the job to discuss during the phone interview. Phone interview was basic questions about my resume/work history, what i understand about the position, and questions about past successes/failure and how i handled them.

    At the end of the phone interview, a second in-person interview was scheduled. This involved an interview with management including sales role-play. About two weeks after the interview, i received an offer.
