Average Interview

Application

I applied online. I interviewed at Clear Channel.

Interview

Process took around four weeks. I received an email for an interview a month after applying online. After interviewing for the first round with one of the professional recruiting managers, I received an email a couple of days after for a second interview with another. After interviewing with her the following week, she told me that she was going to follow up with an email for an interview in the office, where I would have to do a mock sales situation. This recruiter never had the common courtesy to email or call me back, with me thinking that I would be coming in for an interview that same week.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview, Recruiter asked a few questions about me and it I was familiar with the company. Simply just asked me about what I want to do long term. She never explained what the position or any details. Recruiter was difficult to talk to, she made facilitating a conversation difficult.

    Interview

    I applied back in December and they said they weren't hiring, but contacted me in late April for a phone interview. First phone interview included some standard questions as well as information about the company. Next was a second phone interview later that week which was only 15 minutes and easier than the first one. In this interview they tell you about a case study assgnment that you have to present in front of the sales managers. The guidelines for the assignment were brief and straightforward, but be prepared to be able to come up with a very detailed marketing campagin for whichever client they choose for you (mine was forever 21). They asked a lot of questions throughout the presentation and expected me to know exactly how to do the job given I am a recent graduate and have only a summer's worth of sales experience.

    Long interview process... took place over 5-6 weeks. Application submission. Phone interview. 1st face-to-face interview with manager. 2nd face-to-face interview with two managers and AE's. Senior Management interview. 4th face-to-face interview with two separate managers (two interviews back-to-back), 5th interview with a mock-presentation.

    Interview Questions

    • They were easy and typical questions. Nothing was difficult. Be prepared to discuss past, present, and future. Explain how your experience, strengths, and knowledge can translate into competitive advantages for their team, stations, & market. Preparation is key.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiation was not possible. It was take it or leave it. Was led to believe that accounts would be placed under me to increase my total compensation above the "standard" draw that every AE receives. Once I started, it took two months for management to transfer those accounts. When it was not consistent with their previous assurances, there was no explanation or discussion allowed for their lack of follow-through.
