    Sales Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at marcus evans (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    This was my first in-person interview, so it was more of an information session, where the interviewer explained in detail the project cycle and what his daily duties entail. Occasionally the interviewer asked me to basically regurgitate what he just said to assess my understanding of his description. Ended with a very detailed explanation of the pay and advancement process in the company.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at marcus evans (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    quite old fashioned questions were obviously prepared without a flow just for the sake to be asked .No clear description of a job title itself as well as day to day responsibilities.No clear explanation of salry and renumeration package.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at marcus evans (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Rather difficult interview process. Very challenging, forward questions. However, reasonable questions considering this role would be for a sales position. They certainly want to see how tenacious you are. Personally, the atmosphere was not for me. I know many people who work in sales, but this seemed to be of a different caliber. I read some bad reviews on Glassdoor before finalizing my offer, so I was a bit biased and ended up turning down the offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at marcus evans (Chicago, IL) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Professional interview setting asking about prior experience. Was also asked what I am looking for in a career and what I wouldn't like in a career. Interviewer was aware of all internet reviews, especially on this site. Was able to effectively challenge each negative statement and made it seem as if the ones who are not good at selling or have bad work ethic do not make it. Just received call back for second interview with a different manager.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at marcus evans (New York, NY) in April 2015.

    Interview

    The interview is really a sales job selling you on the company and opportunity disguised as an interview. I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter what you say, as long as you seem somewhat competent, you will get the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Didn't really ask tough questions. Mostly about past experience and if I think I can do this job and why/   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    didn't negotiate base pay, but heard someone else was able to double it through negotiating

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at marcus evans (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Two interviews on separate days with different members of the management team. Interviews take place in the conference room, which is sleek and nice -- a contrast to the poor sales floor aesthetic.

    Interview Questions

    • None...everything was very mediocre. There was a role-playing exercise where I pretended to sell Marcus Evans "product" (which is a very ambiguous and shady thing to begin with).   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Don't take the offer. You will never make the money they tell you that you will unless you are a sociopath.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at marcus evans (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Found job posting online for account executive position in the Chicago area. Talked on the phone with HR and then had an in person interview with sales manager. First half of the in person interview was behavioral based interview questions and the second part was understanding position. They handed me a packet of the job position, company culture, etc... and went into great detail so I had absolutely no questions at the end. I heard back from them a couple days later to do my second in person interview. The homework for this interview was to find 10 people to sell their product too (seats for a conference).
