    Anonymous Employee in Austin, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at Yodle (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    The interview itself easy interview. First they will call you and do a short phone interview and will then schedule you to come in face to face. First you will be asked to shadow another rep on the phones for about 20 min. They will then take you to an interview room describe the job to you, ask you a few standard interview questions then ask you to read a script. They will hire anyone with any background. They just want to know if you are willing to make dials all day, talk to people all day and get hung up on.

    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Yodle.

    Interview

    It started would with getting a tour of the facility. After that, I shadowed a team member to get an idea of what the day-to-day looks like. You just listen in on the headset and pretty much just observe the cold calling and following the script. Then you meet with a senior recruiter who asks you normal questions you're asked for entry-level sales interviews. Nothing too surprising, it's a really straightforward process.

    Interview Questions

    • Why sales? How do you keep a good attitude when dealing with rejection? Do you feel comfortable following our script?   Answer Question

    Software Engineering - NYC Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Yodle (New York, NY) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I applied through their website. After sending my resume, the HR contacted me after 3 weeks. She asked me about what I am doing now? Why am I looking for another position while I am already working. She explained about what Yodle does and their tech stack. The recruiter told me the different stages of the interview process. No technical questions from the HR. I liked the recruiter's attitude and liked the fact that the recruiter didn't ask me questions like what I experienced couple of years ago.

    Interview Questions

    • Coding test was through codepad. The tech lead of the software engineering team in Austin and another developer called me and gave me the link for coding test (coderpad.com).

      The goal was to fix code so that when it is run, it shows result as true.

      Read a long string and find the count of words and then sort the words in descending order based on its frequency.

      Collections. sort(), comparable interface, Collections.reverse() - some of the functions used for this.

      Finally got the code to run and got the expected result.

      Then asked me to explain Big O notation for my algorithm.   1 Answer

    Customer Success Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Yodle.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and received a call the next day for a phone interview. This went really well and I had a fantastic conversation with the HR rep. Then I got a call the next day to set up an in person interview with the 2 Hiring Mgrs. This was a 30 minute scheduled, but went an hour. It went really well so I was not surprised that I got a call that same day for a third interview with their manager. This was via phone as she is in Austin. Of course no one told me this and I thought I had another in person interview. I showed up at the Charlotte office and no one knew what I was talking about. Also they do not give you the last names of who you will speak to and the manager had a fairly common name.

    I called the HR rep who then tells me the interview is by phone with a manager in Austin. Oops. However, she did not even have me on her schedule. I was told she would call me in an hour. It took me 45 minutes to get there and I rushed home. There were no apologies from anyone about the mix up

    Despite everything, the conversation during the third interview went well. The manager said I would hear back either way by the middle of the following week. Of course I had been hearing this all along. Since they got back to me so quickly before and I was confident in my ability and the vibe of the interview that I would receive an offer. When I told the manager how interested I was in the position she said "Well you made it this far, so that's a great sign!" Again I totally thought I would get an offer.

    The middle of the following week comes and I hear nothing so I sent an email inquiry. No reply. I waited until the start of the following week and sent a second email. This time the HR rep replied saying they decided to go with someone else. They acted like they were in a hurry to fill the role and I am more qualified for the role. Note: The job is still posted as a new posting.

    So my experience was negative. You should never get to the third round in an interview process and then receive no word after promising a status update. I had to email them twice to get a reply. I doubt they would have sent me anything if I did not follow-up. I also did not like the mix up in the scheduling of the third interview. I bought a new outfit for it, which I did not need since it was via phone. Perhaps if they gave me a last name, the people in the Charlotte office would know the manager was in Austin. I felt they did not respect my time and the lack of follow-up for third round candidate was unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Yodle (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Very unorganized review process with 6 different people asking the same questions, don't know how a bunch of unintelligent people run that site but they do. Didn't offer me water until an hour+ into the interview. Place was a dirty and unorganized mass of 600+ Austinites trying to all fish in the same hole. Very unprofessional atmosphere.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Yodle (Austin, TX) in October 2016.

    Interview

    Starts with a 15 minute phone interview, but can be much longer. For me, the interviewer did not even call at the scheduled time and it was not until I reached out via email that we rescheduled for the next day... which the recruiter was to as well. Questions were basic at first, but quickly transitioned to typical behavioral interview questions.
    Afterwards, it you are invited to an onsite interview to shadow another sales rep for 30 minutes, and to be interviewed by another hiring manager. The reps try their best to show how much fun they are having, but this is a smile and dial call center at its worst; a relic of the sales techniques of a time long past. The interview with the hiring manager mostly just covers your resume and a few more behavioral interview questions. Over all, very easy, but not worth accepting the position for the laughably low pay rate they offer.

    Sales Scottsdale Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Yodle.

    Interview

    Basic interviews and background checks. The job pays minimum wage, but has a decent commission structure if you are assigned "the right" segment, Real Estate Agent, - over 90% of sales are made to Real Estate Agents. If you are not assigned Real Estate Agents you will make 30k/year at most. May as well quit and find a real job with a real company that understands a decent base salary equates to decent sales people. After being offered the job there is a new hiree mixer where you learn the company culture of drinking alcohol. Drinking is not required, but it is encouraged. Just like a frat house. Have fun burning business owners and having a negative impact in the business world.

    Interview Questions

    • Can you operate a computer?
      Can you read scripts without deviating?
      Are you familiar with SEO and online marketing?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. You get paid 20k/year and commission for each sale that does not cancel. I worked there for 2 years and was successful. But it was only because I was assigned Real Estate Agents. And they cancel a lot. If they cancel with 4 months you need to pay back commission you received. At one point I was paying the company back 800$ each paycheck. I saw a lot of talent leave after being frustrated for the last time.

    Interview

    The interview process was an excellent one. There was an initial meet and greet to introduce prospective employees to management. The interview was lengthy but involved several rounds with numerous managers. The questions were insightful and real without being the typical generic interview questions you get.

    I was interviewed for numerous teams at one time and two of the three were people I had met prior at the meet and greet.
