Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Employee in Mill Valley, CA (US)

Positive Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in December-2018.

Interview

I was initially contacted via Linkedin by an internal Glassdoor recruiter. He helped me at every stage of the process and was very prompt in answering any questions I had. First, there was a casual 30 min phone screen with one of the sales managers. Then I did a mock call which went better than I expected. Last, I came into the office for three 30 min interviews with two managers and a director. After each step in the process, the recruiter immediately contacted me to go over feedback and ask about the experience.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Chicago, IL (US)) in March-2018.

    Interview

    Applied online. My background is a bit non-traditional, so I was sure to include a cover letter, which the recruiter said really helped to connect the dots for him and allowed me to move forward in the interview process. There was a phone screen, which was professional, but warm and extremely transparent (in a good way).

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in December-2017.

    Interview

    A Glassdoor recruiter contacted me after I had applied for an AE role online (LinkedIn) to schedule a phone screening. Following the phone screen I was asked to have a second call with Director of Sales. Next round of the interview process was a "role play" presentation/pitch over video conference. You are asked to set up a PPT to present. I presented to two managers. Next round was to meet Sales Managers and Sales Director at office. Received an offer less than one week following the on-site meeting. Each person I met and spoke with through the interview process was extremely friendly and overall very enjoyable to work with.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in May-2018.

    Interview

    After applying to several roles at Glassdoor, I was contacted by a recruiter in Chicago who was very upfront about the AE role and overall compensation package. She asked a few basic questions and then scheduled another interview with the hiring manager. This next interview included a variety of behavioral questions. The third interview is an actual sales pitch, for the Glassdoor offerings. The fourth interview is in person and you can expect to meet with all the sales managers, in addition to the director.

    Interview

    Recently finished the interview process at Glassdoor and had a great experience. The process was quick, consisting of a initial phone screen, phone interview with Director of Sales, an on-site interview with three different people, and then capped off with a sales pitch/ demo. Overall it lasted about two weeks so I was appreciative of their promptness. James was my recruiting adviser and was very helpful throughout the process — very transparent and communicative.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Glassdoor (Mill Valley, CA (US)) in August-2018.

    Interview

    I went through 4 rounds of interviews for this role. The first was a phone screening with a recruiter followed by a phone interview with a sales manager. Both conversations were very low stress and engaging phone calls. The next step in the process was a mock sales pitch with 2 sales managers over a video conference call. Although this was the most stressful part of the interviewing process, Glassdoor does an amazing job of getting you the information you need well before hand to study and prepare. My recruiter also was extremely helpful and coached me up on what to highlight in the mock call. The last step was an onsite for 2 hours meeting with a director of sales, and two sales managers. Again, low stress environment and more of just evaluating culture fit. All in all this process was very enjoyable and led to me getting an offer and accepting.
