Application

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yext in September 2016.

Interview

Had a Phone Interview. Scheduled a time and date. Hiring Manager called me at the right time. Said would tell me in a week if I'm invited to an in person interview. Ultimately I wasn't invited for an in person interview. Gave me 4 questions before explaining the role I would play at Yext. Very polite and even said I could call her back if I had any questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Met with 3 different sales managers, who all asked fairly general questions about my background, future goals, and why I wanted to do sales. It was pretty straightforward, but upon reflection you need to be pretty gung-ho on the position and sales in general to have a successful interview, not sure if I was...

    Interview

    Great experience, but must be comfortable talking on the phone all day. The provide a break down of you day to day. Everyone is pretty nice and friendly. You are interviewed by 4 managers that you will work with. The also give you a tour of the office, which is beautiful. The 4 interviews are pretty repetitive but it provides a good foundation for the role and responsibilities.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY) in December 2015.

    Interview

    Met with three sales Managers. Brought into a room and they came to ask me questions one by one. Took about two hours total. Overall, they were very nice, friendly, and there were not any particularly difficult questions. Afterwards, went on a tour. I was not offered the job and was not told why, but then they offered me the opportunity to interview for a different job at Yext.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Yext (New York, NY) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Phone interview - Who are you in your group of friends? What is Yext? Why sales? Then the next day I went in for a hour and a half long interview in their office which was nothing short of ridiculous. I got "lucky," and one of the managers who was supposed to interview me was unavailable, so it didn't last the regular 2 hours. All the managers asked me the same questions, and none asked anything creative (to no surprise). These people asked me questions like I was going into some really important job. Save yourself and don't work for this place, the walls are white, the desks are white, all the people are white wearing sweatpants and say "totally" and "awesome" for every other word. They're just looking for hamsters to run the wheel and churn out money. I was given a tour of the office by a salesperson who mistakenly told me that "the most exciting part of working here is the free snacks." I couldn't run faster out of that interview. If you are creative, have a soul, or a vocabulary that spans beyond frat slang, save yourself and leave the money mongering to these fools. I just went for the practice, and am on to better pastures. SAVE YOURSELF!
