Interview

This interview was the most disturbing one I have ever had. The hiring manager was unprofessional with his questions. The other interviewers seem to have been as taken back by him as me.

Interview Questions
  • The interview questions were typically questions mostly. Tell me about a time, how do you manage, what are examples of, etc. The HM questions were abrasive and forceful. He wanted me to prove and state why I wanted the position more than other positions I had applied for and kept rephrasing the question because he was not satisfied with any answers.

Interview

The hiring process consisted of seven individual interviews with the team. Most people were polite and asked reasonable questions. I was then given an assignment to present a digital marketing strategy to them. I spent a considerable amount of time doing this free work and put together a thoughtful polished slide deck which they insisted I email in advance. After I delivered the presentation, they asked me multiple questions about how they could improve their marketing strategy. That afternoon I contacted HR to request the email addresses of the team members I presented to so I could thank them for their time. The HR rep refused to give me this information and told me to send any messages directly to her. The next day she contacted me to tell me the position had been eliminated. I found the whole experience to be bizarre and suspect they had multiple candidates come in just to get free work done.

First, you sign up through their website. Then they schedule a pre-screening call. For me, they decided that I would be referred to the hiring manager during the phone call. Although, they never got back to me.
