    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Medifast.

    The HR person emailed they were not interested, and then 4 hours later asked me for an interview? When I spoke to her she was "catty" and aggressive, disparaging about my work experience and looking for things in everything I was saying.

    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Medifast in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    Very long. Applied on-line. Recieved an email with questions. Then a phone interview. Then was scheduled to meet with district manager for a 1:1 interview in Aventura (I live in Miami), that lasted 2 hours and she was late. That was on a Saturday, recruiter called me on Momday am to let me know I had been given an offer. She told me to give my 2 weeks notice to my current employer (which I did) and I would start my training (2 weeks, out of town) in 3 weeks. I had to get drug tested, and fax documents and take an online skill/personality test. Then I was called about a week later to let me know that I wont be starting for at least another month! (should have told me that BEFORE I quit my job!!)

    Overall, VERY long process and don't be afraid to question the recruiter and ask for higher pay!

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Medifast in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I had posted my resume up on Monster jobs and about a week later, a recruiter from Medifast had contacted me. She asked me some basic questions about my previous work experience and education. Based of that, she asked if I could come in for a 1 on 1 interview with the manager at the center. I went in for the interview and she asked me about how I could relate my previous work experience to the new job. Just very basic questions. At that point, it was down to me and one more interviewee, so she asked me to return the next day to interview with the operations manager. During this 1 to 1 interview, the manager asked me to read over their "phone script" and had me pretend as though I was speaking to a customer through the phone. It was not anything hard, kind of awkward and weird.

    I received a call back later that afternoon from the original recruiter offering me the job.

    Marketing Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Medifast in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    Position was for a Director of Marketing for their retail outlets. Spoke to HR, than head of brand marketing. Flew in for face-to-face interviews w/ heads of Marketing and a retail sales development head for the group. Marketing folks asked typical marketing questions - examples of work done, what is strategic, etc.

    The head sales guy who'd been handling most of the retail marketing didn't seem to want the position to be with the marketing group, or that he even wanted it particularly filled. Mostly asked questions and said things that led me to believe he just wanted to be left alone to do his own thing - and that things were going fine w/ him that way. Just didn't seem like a good position - more like he wanted an admin, but marketing wanted to give him a more strategic marketer. to bring him into the fold w/ the rest of the company. Didn't follow up with them, And, they never followed up w/ me.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing all that unusual. Can you give an example of something that didn't work out all that well.   View Answer
