They were easy and typical questions. Nothing was difficult. Be prepared to discuss past, present, and future. Explain how your experience, strengths, and knowledge can translate into competitive advantages for their team, stations, & market. Preparation is key.
Be prepared to have all you business relationships already have other AE's assigned to them. They do compensate very well. But mostly want your level of contacts to keep them strong as a company and use your contacts for other sales and managerial status.
The person hired was going to be resposnible for redsigning all of their web sites. I was shown numerous examples of the current web look and feel and asked what I would do to improve each one, as well as what I would do to provide a familial feel to them as a family of web sites.
My answers for each site varied, however, they did get a fair amount of high-level design ideas for "free" during the process.
Consider yourself fortunate not to have received an offer. In my experience there, virtually no one in any management capacity appreciates design skills and this company will never offer pay that can’t be bettered elsewhere. Added to low pay is a work environment that regards employees as distasteful inconveniences needing close supervision. Micro-managing impeded work flow. All of the positive reviews I’ve observed here are by people who have not had that much time with the company. During my time there without fail the best people left primarily due to the work environment. The less said about middle and senior management the better. There aren’t words.
I made a reference to a particular person who would never give clear and concise answers to any of the rather challenging technical questions I would ask but would instead tell me to look-up information on the internet. I was informed by recruiter later on that it was this answer that they did not like as they felt that I lacked serious troubleshooting skills, which sounded very awkward to me as the question was not meant to evaluate my troubleshooting skills. It was very general and vague question and my answer was also lacked specifics in regards to how difficult was the information I needed and how easily could it be accessed on the internet (not that easily).
How and who informed you that you didnt get a job?
