    Sales Development Representative Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Bloom Energy (Sunnyvale, CA).

    Interview

    I was contacted through LinkedIn by a recruiter, I responded and was emailed later by a different recruiter. It took over a week for her to reply and she rescheduled my phone interview about an hour before it was scheduled. Another week went by and I had a second phone interview with the hiring manager.

    The second phone interview was easy enough but when I asked him to follow-up questions about the role he described it differently than both the recruiters had. I took his description more seriously since he was the manager for the team. He explained the next step was to do a research project which combined my knowledge of the company and to show that I can do the job. I was given the weekend to complete the task.

    Later that day I received the research project, it was quite in-depth for an application. I was given a real company and told i had to identify and find 7 VP level or higher people within that company and find their contact information. I then had to write 7 unique email or phone scripts specialized for each person explaining the value of Bloom and how their products can benefit the company. This was suppose to act as an introduction to set up an appointment with the account exec. I then had to detail my process and explain why I choose those individuals, how I found their info, why I thought they would be a decision maker, and explain how I found out what was important to them or their company. This was a very labor intensive process for what was an associate level position

    I choose to bow out of the interview process at this point because I felt this was an unrealistic task and showed how the company is not willing to offer training or any other support and rather just assume that any candidates can already complete the tasks for the job.
