    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maidenhead, England
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Maidenhead, England
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Informatica in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Initial HR process was good with multiple conversations with internal HR resource.
    Interviewer was inexperienced (They were director level so this shouldn't have been the case) and constantly talked throughout the process about their career and how they had got to Director status very unprofessional. It was difficult to answer any question as they always interrupted.
    However the follow up by the internal recruiter was none existent, calling and email didn't provoke any response - its as if the internal recruiter couldn't face the job of telling you that you were not successfully. For me negative feedback is one of the best ways to improve and it was disappointing that such a large organisation had such inexperienced people.
    The office itself is in a strange location in the middle of what seems to be old Army type barrack buildings and is very old fashioned in style. However one of the comments at the interview was that Informatica was trying to update itself and transition into a more modern organisation.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Informatica.

    Interview Details

    It was a fair interview process back in 2009. Back then managers treated you with respect during interviews. Today the new managers show some aggressivity during the interview to see if you will crack. They will lure you into the job by being on their best behavior and once you start working for them you will see their true colours and realize how hostile they are.

    • Back in 2009 it was a fair interview process...not that difficult. Today is about the same. They want top performers so if you have that on your resume, then they will want you.   Answer Question

    Interview Details

    Applied through school career center website and also talked to recruiters during career fair. Got an on campus interview within 10 days. The interview is pretty short, only 60 minutes. The guy who conducted the interview was from the head quarter and has been a software engineer for 20 years. The question he asked was about is pretty easy. It was about Binary Search Tree Traverse. How to do it recursively and iteratively.

    Interview Details

    The process was very straightforward. Their recruiter maintained constant communication throughout and was very candid with feedback. It took approximately two weeks and included a pair of phone conversations and on site interview with the hiring manager. Everything was organized efficiently and everyone was forthright. Their passion for the company was apparent putting any hesitation to rest and assuring that this was the right decision.

    Interview Details

    Very easy interview but the interviewer was unprepared! The interviewer didn't greet me and had no idea about the status of my application. He also just hung up after we were done without saying anything but 'Bye'. I solved the questions really fast and when I was done it seemed like he was googling random questions and asking me. Was shocked when I didn't get an offer because I thought I did really well.
