    Sales Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    A very attentive hiring team, with a clear understandable culture. Amazing work space and energy. Sat in the lobby met by a recruiter I had been emailing. Went through the office space and saw how everyone worked. One employee hollered at me during the walkthrough and received a stern look from the hiring manager. Met with another person I had met before to prep for the actual interview, this was confusing as I was ready to go for an interview, but it turned into a marathon, or at least a 5k.

    Account Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (Chicago, IL) in May 2018.

    Interview

    This is a three part interview, the first stage is a phone interview which just about anyone with a sales background & is coherent should pass. The second interview is a group interview, immediately followed by a one on one interview. I was not offered a job because I do not fit into the Yelp's image/box, that's the sole reason. I have a successful track record of phone sales, yet couldn't get an entry level position where the average employee doesn't last 12 weeks, what a joke. I had a feeling this company would completely waste my time. If you are Queer,Trans, PoC...DO NOT BOTHER, IT'S A JOKE.
