Marketing Communications Executive Interview

Marketing Communications Executive
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Pocket Kings in December 2010.

Interview Details – After an initial phone interview, i attended their headquarters in South Dublin for 5 consecutive interviews, these were conducted by other members of the team i'd be working on. The first interviews were relaxed and friendly. The latter interviews were with more senior people who would make the key decisions. I thought this process was designed to wear the interview enthusiasn/BS out of you.

BI Analyst Interview

BI Analyst
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Pocket Kings in January 2009.

Interview Details – All recruitment is through agencies and referral. First contact is a phone interview with potential boss. If you get to face to face stage usually you will be interviewed by 4/5 people of peers and management followed by HR chat. I was asked personality test questions but this is not typical. You will be asked questions about poker. The culture of the company is as you would expect of an online poker company. Full of testosterone cut throat environment, if you are not good at your job you will be fired very quickly, if you are good you will get the best wages and bonus of any company in Ireland. If you are well able to handle yourself in a macho environment then you will be fine. Great perks such as free food and gym.

Web Development Interview

Web Development
Dublin, Dublin (Ireland)

The process took a day - interviewed at Pocket Kings in April 2011.

Interview Details – The interview took about 5 hours, with 5 different people.
At the beginning there was a small presentation of the company and then we got the the actual talk.
Everybody asked his own questions, starting from very technical details to career history, etc.
Overall everybody was very nice, highly skilled and knowledgeable. Very good behaviour, very nice feedback. All the people I saw had a copy of my CV in front of them and were constantly taking notes on it.
All underlined that the company has high demands from its employees, but the rewards are high.

Interview Question – I was asked what's the difference between one function and another.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – During the interview I was asked what's my target salary range. Because I was offered lower than I've asked, I was able to negotiate through the recruitment agency to get the minimum I've required.
I'd tell anyone that gets an offer from them to ask for what they really think you're worth, because PK can afford it, and if they think you're worth it - then you'll get you number.
