    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 through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Informatica.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is a fast one, but fairly hard. Informatica reviews the candidates personality, sales methodology, and energy. Normally it is a three step process where you meet with the team, do a role play, and then meet with the director. it is very well organized, and not a tough process in the sense that the interview panel tries to stump you. The interview panel wants to simply understand what the candidate knows, and their selling technique.
