    I have been working at MicroAge full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    *They give you freedom to work your book of business.
    *You get treated like an adult, so no managers over your shoulder asking you about your call count, or if you show up 1 minute late.
    *The executive team generally seems to care about my success. I came from a company in which the C-Level execs really separated themselves from the sales team. Not much interaction. At MicroAge it's hard to see a line of where the C-Level ends and sales begins, because everyone talks to everyone.
    *There aren't any barriers blocking you from talking to anyone in the company - a true open-door policy.
    *The sales team is very well trained, has loads of experience and is very professional.

    Cons

    Sometimes the time change is tough to deal with since MicroAge is on MST - you learn how to work around it.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing because there are a lot of happy sales people here.

    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tempe, AZ
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MicroAge (Tempe, AZ) in April 2010.

    Interview

    I was contacted at my current employer from MicroAge. They were searching for sales executives for IT. I met with the company Sales Vp and a few of the current employees and was shown what some of the earning potential was there. They offer a completely commissioned position at 50% of your profit but give a draw from that for a monthly salary. When I started, there was a small amount of training involved for the first 2 weeks but the expectations were not completely clear, so there was a bit of confusion on my part with how to start at this new company. The training diminished over time for the next couple of months, but every once and awhile there was an hour class to attend.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your experiences with IT products?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation for the draw of commissions. I had at one point asked for a larger draw than 3000 a month, but was denied.
