    Regional Vice President, Enterprise Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Yext (San Francisco, CA) in February 2020.

    Interview

    From beginning to end the interview process was thorough, well executed, and considerate. The initial screening and subsequent interview with the hiring manager was completed quickly allowing us to establish whether there was mutual interest. They were mindful of my own process, existing commitments, and need to select them as well as the other way around. I left feeling sought after and not just a candidate in the process. The recruiters were very engaged to ensure that you were properly prepared for meetings and expectations were set. I thought it very professional and represented the organization well.

    Had a scheduled interview with a recruiter but was never contacted. Tried to reschedule but was ghosted. This was a waste of time and was overall a very unprofessional and poor experience. Please hire better recruiters!

    The first part was doing a coding challenge individually.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Yext.

    It was fairly straightforward: I had two technical interviews (one in person, one on the phone) then one behavioral, and the questions were on standard CS concepts. The interviewers were very friendly and the recruiter was very helpful and quick to respond via email.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yext.

    Interview

    The first round of interviewing was a one on one interview that was conducted on my university's campus. It was a very conversational and casual interview that seemed very comfortable. It was not very long, maybe 30 to 45 minutes, and it consisted of a miniature case at the end. The second and final interview was a Zoom interview conducted by a panel of a variety of people. Interviews ranged from conversational and personal to a case style interview that ended with a presentation made to a few different groups of people. Overall, everyone was incredibly nice and supportive and I enjoyed the process very much.
