    Current Employee - Regional Account Executive in Indianapolis, IN (US)

    I have been working at Beyond.com full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The culture is great. Very laid back and easy going. You set your own schedule. The sales team genuinely cares about each other. The kitchen is always stocked with food & snacks. Benefits are great. Rewards employees with gift cards. Holds internal contests. They strive to have a fun work-life balance. I love the people I work with. Extremely flexible. Positive environment. Time-off is easy to take. With Beyond being a small company, it is simple to contact higher management with concerns/questions.

    Cons

    Goals are unattainable. Products do not work on the back end. Little training on how the "back end" system works. Huge disconnect between Indy office and KOP. No automation. Micro-managing the employees. Dials are difficult to make when you have to do all of the vetting. Management is broken. No brand recognition. Majority of the employees have less than a year experience. Many are looking for other jobs. Product conviction is not present. No structure. No stability. No room for career advancement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees at the Indy office. Invest into marketing and branding the company. Hire a Customer Service Team for this office. Automate the system. Realize that the goals are not attainable. Fix them. The base pay is not cutting it when we are all here for commission but cannot exceed let alone hit our monthly goals. We do not want to be micro-managed. Create a better structure.

    Digital Recruitment Specialist - SMB Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Indianapolis, IN (US)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Indianapolis, IN (US)
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days - interviewed at Beyond.com in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter had reached out to me via LinkedIn. She was very tenacious, genuine, and persistent. We had a few conversations while I was at my former job. I was not actively looking for a job. I had been at my former job for nearly 2 years. I was feeling burnt out and this opportunity came at the perfect time. She wanted me to come in for an interview ASAP. I came in a few days later on my lunch break. It went extremely well. I felt confident after the interview. However, I had another job opportunity I had considered. After leaving my interview at Beyond, I decided that I wasn't ready to make a move just yet. Needless to say, after a higher base pay, promised culture improvement, and the opportunity for career growth, I accepted the position and quickly put my two weeks in at my current job.

    Interview Questions
    • I had been asked if I was okay with taking a step back. This process would entail me starting my book of business over and not making the amount of money I had been making.   View Answer
