    I have been working at Kotis Design full-time

    Pros

    I can't say enough good things about this company. The work is fun and exciting. Every day is a new adventure and each day offers the opportunity to control your own destiny. Sales reps get to pitch companies and verticals they're interested in and pitch product they like and believe in. The environment is dynamic and collaborative. Everyone is extremely nice. Training is ongoing and there's always something new to learn. Pay and benefits are great and having the ability to work from home is a huge plus. Clients are generally extremely happy with Kotis' work and capabilities which makes everything that much better.

    Cons

    If I have to list a few cons, there are some growing pains (only natural for a fast-moving company that focuses on innovation), the coffee pot is always empty (this is kind of a joke and kind of not...Kotisians/Seattleites drink a lot of coffee), and there's a lack of free snacks (I'm all for healthy options).

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Results come when work is intriguing, fun, and dynamic so continue to encourage innovation and collaboration.

    Account Executive and Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Remote, OR
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Kotis Design (Remote, OR) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Multiple interviews. Phone screen first then a two hour video interview. Did not get an offer for the first position but was recommended to interview for another position. The Account Manager lead who interviewed me seemed like she already had her mind make up before the interview even started. Very formally planned questions like "what items would you suggest as giveaways for x customer" then would move on to next question without informal conversation on the position. She did not ask if I had any questions at the end and hung up on me after the interview. I waited 20 minutes for the next interviewer to call me back but they did not. The recruiter then emailed me and said the 2nd interview was in a meeting even though they scheduled to have me interview with these people a week or so in advance. My guess is the first girl did not like me right off the bat and told the recruiter that it was a waste of time to have the second person interview me after she hung up on me. The recruiter was nice to work with but the Account Manager lead was very unprofessional.

    Interview Questions

    • Very scripted questions as you can imagine. If you are interviewing for a sales position the interview is more informal and professional.   Answer Question
