    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and was contacted via email to set up a time for a phone interview. The phone interview lasted between 10-15 minutes and it was very basic questions. I then got an email to interview in the office. The on site interview is divided into 2 parts. The first you go around and look at the sales floor with the recruiter and you watch a couple of videos. You then go into a one on one interview with a sales manager who ask’s you some basic questions and then to role play situation. Then a couple of days after the recruiter gets back to you and does a 2nd touch base on how you feel about the role and the company and if you think that Yelp I the right fit for you. A couple of weeks later they offered me the position. It is a long proceeds from the initial emailing back and forth to actually getting an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    I submitted my application through career fair. They contacted me to complete a short coding challenge (15 min). I passed that and took a 45 minute Skype interview with an engineer. The questions were fairly doable. The interviewer was super nice and provided hints when I needed help with the coding question he gave me.

    Account Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in September 2017.

    Interview

    There are three parts. Phone screen, On-site Interview, Phone Screen then a job offer.

    I applied online and received an email about a week later asking if I was available for a quick phone call. The phone call was relatively easy. It was more of an conversation . I spoke with a manager and he just wanted to know a little more about my background.
    I was offered an on-site interview on the phone.

    If you are offered an on- site interview please get there at least 15 minutes early. They will give you a tour and then you will be shown an video of the day in the life of a Yelper.

    After you are shown the video they ask if you have any questions or comments. After that you have an interview with a manager.

    I was only interviewed by one manager in person. She was really nice and pleasant and she asked me to pitch. After the pitch she will give you feedback about the pitch and ask you to pitch again to see if you are able to take feedback and implement it, I thought that was really cool and I did appreciate that.

    After the interview. If you passed they will send you an email within a week or two. I think it took a week for me. The email basically said they would like to move on to the next step in the interview process and there will be videos in the email that you need to watch. WATCH THOSE VIDEOS AND MAKE SURE YOU HAVE QUESTIONS. That is really important You will set up a call with a recruiter.

    The last part of the interview is that the recruiter will call you and it will be conversation but you still need to be on your A game. The recruiter really just wants you to show enthusiasm, why you are interested in sales, Why Yelp, etc. It is a sales position, so make sure you are selling yourself and be chipper on the phone. And again make sure you watch those videos and have questions.

    After the last and final phone interview, I got a call the next week saying that I got the job. I was super happy.

    Overall a pretty easy process.

    Overall it is a pretty easy interview. Just make sure you are enthusiastic, ask a lot of questions, and just be yourself.

    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.
