    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in December 2012.

    Interview

    I received an email from Yelp the day after I applied, informing me that I had passed the first stages of their interview process. The email gave me a few phone interview times and I was to pick two and respond back with my choices. However the times were:
    Wednesday, December 5th from 9:30 AM - 12:00 PM
    Thursday, December 6th from 9:30 - 10:30 AM
    Thursday, December 6th from 1:00 - 4:00 PM
    I had just read my email on December 5th so that time was impossible and so was the first time on December 6th because I had work. So I emailed back with the last time option, hoping it wouldn't be a problem as it was a 4 hr block. I waited and did not receive any call, so I tried to call Yelp and set up another interview. BIG MISTAKE. Yelp doesn't want people to call them so they make it impossible they only want you to email them with questions, which I did and still received no response. I realized that I didn't want to try to sell advertising for a company that makes it impossible for their customers to reach them. Its very dirty of the company and speaks volumes about their level of organization. Thanks but no thanks Yelp........

At times, I got nervous but they made me feel comfortable and put me at ease. BE RECEPTIVE TO COACHING!

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Process took about a month
    - phone screen with account manager
    - in person interview with 3 account managers/ background check request
    - phone interview with hiring manager
    - webinar
    - phone call with hiring manager asking you if you want the job!!!!!
    The process was long, but it really gives you the chance to show how resilient you can be and present yourself in a way that makes you a desirable candidate for this position. I am so happy and excited to begin my job at Yelp in November!!!! The process was definitely worth it and made me a stronger interviewer and communicator in general.

    Interview

    It was poor. They use telephone interview to screen applicants. Then if you are successful you do a face to face interview. The issue is they hire anyone.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Yelp (New York, NY) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Phone interview does not allow much room to show character and impress. The interviewer expects you to repeat the 10 facts about yelp, and the daily blog of an account executive.
    In my opinion, it does not properly screen potential workers, as it does not allow any room for creativity or self expression. Not sure on what basis the interviewer grades the phone interviews.

    Interview Questions

    • The question are as follows "
      1. Tell me what you know about yelp (10 facts)
      2. What can you tell about the product
      3. What do you know about the position
      4. Why do you fit the job (examples can be found in the provided blog)

      Hardest question? When the interviewer asked what i want to ask him.
      After this mutually scripted phone interview i wasnt sure i am talking to a real person at that point.
