    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Red Ventures in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    First interview was good, 30 minutes or so just going over my resume with the interviewer. Second interview with a younger man was horrible. Being interviewed for a digital marketing position, I'd assume that the interviewer would be familiar with the field. For the record, I've worked in the digital marketing field for many, many years (likely more than most at Red Ventures considering this is a field that is slightly more new). The interviewer was unfamiliar with terms that I used, and I'm fairly certain this played against me in the interview. Point being, interview was crummy. I've interviewed with difficult firms, and even if not offered the position, didn't have a negative experience. The interview questions were ridiculous and pointless. Actually have a friend who used to work there, and after my interview process, he told me about his experience at the company. Shortly put, I'll say I'm glad I was not offered the position.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Red Ventures.

    Interview Details

    The first interview was a talk with one of the recruiters. I could tell that this was an experienced interviewer. It was a total of about 45 minutes. They went through my entire resume asking about each work experience in a fairly thorough manner. Then they asked about what I knew about the their process. Then they opened it up to questions from me and at the end asked about compensation. Next steps would have been a case study in person, but I did not receive a follow up.

    • They asked about compensation on a first interview which surprized me, but I guess that was due to the fact that I worked in a different industry.   Answer Question

    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    A very thorough and time consuming process. Began with a basic HR interview followed up by a timed analytical assessment. Then another phone interview with someone that manages one of the marketing channels. The next step was an on-site interview which consisted of 7, that's right, 7 total interviews throughout the day. Oh and just about every one included a case interview situation. As part of one of those 7 interviews, plan on presenting one of your case studies to the CMO, who will try to confuse the heck out of you. Finally, a week later, I was brought back in for 5 more interviews (one case interview) and to learn more about the potential position. Needless to say, interviewing at Red Ventures is a very exhausting and in-depth process.

    Online Marketing Interview

    Application Details

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    This seemed like a good place for online marketing and I found it interesting on paper. When I went for the interview I met several people who didn't looked like good talent and had hardly any experience but somehow held some glorified director, VP etc positions. Everybody seemed a director or vice president of something. But I didn't let that bother me and gave them benefit of doubt. But after I was made an offer I understood why. They will give you fancy titles but the compensation is way behind industry. I like to be compensated fairly. If all a company can offer me is 60% of my current salary then I won't work for them. I don't care how you package your company and how many fancy videos you put on your website (they are nice though!) and how exciting you try to make it look, if a company is looking for great talent then pay good salary.

    The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Applied for the job through a posting on my college's career website. Received an email asking me to fill out a Candidate Profile Questionnaire that asked basic questions about my GPA, why I chose my college/major, what I considered my most significant accomplishment, my interest in the company, etc. Next I was contacted for a phone interview, which consisted primarily of behavioral questions. After that I was asked to take a skills assessment test. Finally, I was brought in for an on-site interview, where I met with six different individuals for about 30 minutes each. Red Ventures really emphasizes fit with the company, so most of the questions were behavioral with one back-of-the-envelope case-style question.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    There were several rounds of interviews. It started with 2 45 min interviews at their offices in Charlotte. These interviews were very general and consisted of questions like Why Red Ventures, Why do you want to move away from current company and such. I was called the next day to schedule the next round of interviews. I came in and had 5 interviews scheduled along with an excel based case study which I was given 45 mins to work on and had to discuss it with a panel. Again the interviews were mostly trying to judge the fit with the firm and the team. I was called again the next day to schedule 4 more interviews.

    Pay offer was much lower than expected. I had no inclination of the amount that would be offered until I got that call from HR. I was surprised at how low the offer was.

    Internet Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    This one stung...alot. They seem like a great company and everyone that I interviewed with was nice, intelligent, and well-educated. The process itself wasn't so grueling until I got to the end interview with one of the co-founders.

    He asked the typical tough questions but the one that apparently sunk me was, "What would you do if you don't get this job?"

    I replied that I would probably go back into public education and maintain my exposure to the Internet Marketing industry via consulting clients and teaching night classes on the subject at the local university. Apparently, when talking about teaching, my face lit up. This was later reinforced by the group that interviewed me: they all agreed with the owner (during a group meeting on my potential hire) that I had a real passion for teaching...and apparently having a passion so deep for education was the principle reason.

    They still want to partner with me (my night class on Internet Marketing could produce interns for them and they could help swell my class rolls) so they left the door open for the future. I was told all of this by the co-founder himself. That speaks volumes about this company; the co-founder himself called me...to let me know I wasn't getting hired.

    This was easily the most difficult interview I've ever had to go through. I'm left questioning everything I've done. I had always prided myself on clear career goals (teach for 5-10 years, get back into tech for 5-10 years, then late-in-life graduate degree in educational technology or language acquisition/ use).

    I even thought my passions lined up well with theirs. To be told that my internal compass isn't as well calibrated as I thought leaves me in a state of self-doubt.

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    There were several rounds of interviews, and by the time I made it through the process I met with 10-12 people at the company. They made the interviews unnecessarily difficult by asking various theoretical/technical questions. Be advised that you will be asked to do case questions, math problems, ec. both verbally and on paper pertaining directly to their business. I think they like it if you ask a lot of questions during the process because the questions are rarely phrased in a way in which you will have all of the information you need to solve the problem. Overall, just be positive/energetic, and don't lose your cool because they make the interviews stressful on purpose, and no one feels like they do well in the process.
