Sounds like you are over qualified, if anything! I would ask about the company culture, product/service and its features, ideal customer profile, compensation structure...just a few ideas. Gl!

Thank you!

Just be yourself! I am sure that you will nail the interview. I would also do some research on the company and have some questions ready to ask at the end of the interview. They love when you ask them questions lol.

Thanks!

Hope it goes well OP! I think the biggest thing is to ask about impact, opportunities and where you fit into that. The more you understand the broader business context, the better impression you'll maek

One of the most disarming things you can do in sales is bringing up objections before your prospect does.

Curious for all the VP Sales types - what is a healthy average attainment for your team? Ours is hovering around 55% to plan for Q1 and as a rep, I'm feeling discouraged since our comp plan has decelerators built in (ie. 55% to plan only gets you ~25% of your OTE commission).

What are some good ways to get it through to management that raising quotas and carving out territories to add AE headcount (while reducing SDR coverage) may not solve the turnover problem they're starting to have?

I'm considering throwing my hat in the ring for consideration, at the same time I've got a sales motion going on - any tips?

Hey Fish,
I have a question for a friend of mine.
He is currently under a hiring process for a tech saas firm for a enterprise sales executive role.
He was contacted first by a headhunter, then had interview with HR, then a local managing director and then a Head of Sales (all on a 3 weeks timeframe) which went all very well. (Headhunter feedback).
He will have a last itw with a VP Sales and was wondering what to think about a final decision to be noticed two weeks after last itw?
Thank you

Thoughts on leaving a commercial AE role from Salesforce to a smaller company (Snowflake/MongoDB/Databricks etc). I have consistently been 150%+ of OTE at SFDC but know for a fact my comp is way under the market. Would be moving into an EAE role and almost doubling base and OTE. Seems like a no brainer but at the same time too good to be true? Has anyone out there made the move and can provide feedback?
