    I worked at Softcat full-time

    Pros

    No better place to gain sales experience after leaving University.

    Cons

    The industry and being a VAR, doesn't bring much of a bigger mission than making great money and having fun.

    Advice to Management

    Greater professional development & learning that isn't role specific.

    Graduate Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Marlow, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Softcat (Marlow, England (UK)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Its was relatively chill, had to sell a holiday to a panel of sales managers and then had to pitch myself and why i'd be an asset to the company. I was called to an interview following this and this was a chill 'chit' chat on bean bags - I thought the interview went well and was buzzing after - but wasn't accepted for being over confident fsfs - ( check yo self b4 yo wreck yo self )

    Interview Questions

    • (ethics question) So your selling to charity who normally gets discount, you are un-aware of this and you have the green light on the sale. Do you let them know and take a massive slice out of your commission or let on you didn't know and take the bigger commission?   1 Answer
