  • Last month, RealSelf members traveled to India with ReSurge International to see the transformative impact of reconstructive surgery. This month we launch Beyond Beauty—a series that explores why, for many plastic surgeons and their patients, reconstructive surgery is about so much more than appearance.

    Senior Strategic Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RealSelf (Seattle, WA) in May 2020.


    THEY DID A GREAT JOB OVERALL!!! Very straightforward process and interview questions. Initial interview with recruiter Amy Shook a couple months prior for a role that wasn't a fit. She reached out again for this role. Amy was amazing throughout the process (and I used to do recruiting, so I'm picky)! The entire team was friendly, engaging, professional. No crazy surprise questions. It was clear the hiring manager had strong emotional intelligence, was realistic and transparent about the role and the company's current situation.

    -Amy interview
    -Interview with hiring manager
    -Loop with 5 on Zoom (COVID-19 shutdown). Always tough to be on Zoom four hours straight yet overall it was a really positive experience.
    -Amy followed-up as promised w/in a few days, gave me feedback I requested and I was actually happy to hear they found an internal candidate that could ramp up quickly, because they just had to lay off 60 employees.
