Marketing/Communications Manager Interview

Marketing/Communications Manager
Los Angeles, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oakwood Worldwide in January 2012.

Interview Details – I found the interview process at Oakwood to be a bit extensive. After having a few calls with the recruiter, I was finally granted a telephone interview with the Marketing Director--who seemed somewhat aloof about the position being offered. I was then contacted again by the recruiter. She set up an in-person interview wit h the hiring Director and another Director. Both seemed unprepared to ask questions regarding the position. I got the feeling that they were moreso looking for a "buddy" type person for the position and not necessarily skill sets related to the position. I also didn't think the Director in charge had a grasp on the position being hired for.

Another red flag for me was when they said the person hired into the position quite after 2 weeks due to "commute." hmmm.

Anyway, after meeting with the two Directors, I was contacted by the recruiter who--I must add was very nice. She let me know that I would now meet with the VP, Marketing. I arrived for yet another interview with the VP and she was skilled and knew a lot about the position and what it entailed. After meeting with her the recruiter contacted me to say that the VP enjoyed speaking with me and that the chances were "looking good" for me for the position.

To backtrack, I was asked to fill out 5 pages of documents--which included paperwork for the company to run a background check on me. So, after going through numerous interviews, I would still need to have a background check conducted. This whole process was extremely tedious.

At long last, I received a call from the recruiter who said that I didn't receive the job. The hiring manager--the one who didn't seem to have a firm grasp on the job--decided not to hire me.

Sigh, what a long, crazy process.
