    Field Marketing Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at SanDisk in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I networked through one of the recruiters and received a call on my voicemail asking about my interest in the Field Marketing internship. Returning the call to the individual at HR, the interview began immediately, and lasted about 20 minutes with purely behavioral questions (i.e. What's one of the biggest challenges you've faced? Do you have any experience with marketing or retail? Describe your resume). The recruiter, after finishing the battery of questions, informed me that I passed the first round, and scheduled a second interview with a Marketing Director. The company and the recruiter were extremely accommodating, and despite the fact I was abroad, agreed to Skype interviews. This interview was much more situationally-based and technical, and lasted thirty minutes. Questions consisted of: How would you market SanDisk products at a general retail franchise? What are the four "p's" of marketing? How would you go about increasing sales for SanDisk? Etc. After a few days, I was contacted saying I made it to the final round, and asked for a convenient time to schedule a final interview. After a week, the final interview transpired on Skype and lasted about twenty minutes with another Channel Director of Marketing. The interviewer asked behavioral questions and went over in more depth my resume than the recruiter did. At the end of the interview, the Director said she would send an exemplary recommendation to the recruiter, which (I think) was a good indicator that I was hired. A few days later, I was informed that I received the job.

    The Interview was very relaxed and wasn't at all stressful. My first interview the recruiter looked at my resume and said she really didn't need to ask any more questions and was happy to move me on to the next round. The second interview took a little bit more convincing and more analytic questions, but overall just being yourself and being excited and not nervous were the top things that helped my interview. They were also both first and second round Skype interviews.
