Very Difficult Interview

Financial Editor/Analyst Interview

Financial Editor/Analyst
Alexandria, VA

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Motley Fool.

Interview Details – They emailed a few days after applying to say that I've made it to the next step which is to write an article on my favorite stock. That same day after sending in my article, they set up a phone interview for later that week. The phone interview only lasted several minutes and it was basic questions as well as asking what another favorite stock is.

Interview Question – What is another favorite stock of yours and why?   View Answer

Copywriter Interview

Copywriter
Alexandria, VA

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Motley Fool in August 2011.

Interview Details – The interview for this job took an excrutiating amount of time (3 months) and consisted of email requests for multiple writing samples. The request for writing samples is not uncommon but when examples already exist on the Web, why disregard a candidate's professional background by asking for more samples and then asking for them to be done for FREE?

I don't quite understand companies that can't take the time to at least talk to a potential candidate over the phone. I also know that if the economy weren't so bad, no one would even consider providing free work let alone ask for it.

Interview Question – There were none.   View Answer

Easy Interview

Office Dynamo Aka Office Manager Interview

Office Dynamo Aka Office Manager
Alexandria, VA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Motley Fool in November 2011.

Interview Details – I received an email response to an online application requesting an initial phone interview that would last no longer than 15 minutes. The interviewer called on time, discussed the company structure and the job hours and salary of the position. The discussion was short and the interview felt ill-prepared and a little too informal.
