    I applied online – interviewed at Rise Interactive.

    Interview Details

    After submitting my applications, I received a online test with a email. It was not very hard that there were 30 questions, including calculation questions and sentence correction questions. You grade had to be at least an 80% on it. I passed and received a phone interview in three days. The questions of the phone interview are regular ones.

    Internet Marketing Consultant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rise Interactive.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was prompted to take the pre-screening exam. The exam was 30 questions with an hour time limit - consisted mainly of basic algebra disguised as Internet Marketing word problems. I passed and was told they'd be in contact within three days. Two days later they wanted to schedule a phone interview. The first half of the phone interview was about my back ground and interests. The second half was made up of questions I was not anticipating so I was caught off guard. One very specific question about excel really bummed me out because I knew how to do what she was asking but I couldn't describe how to do it without having excel in front of me. The HR rep was very professional and even though I got rejected they provided me with quite a few resources to check out.

    Senior Internet Marketing Apprentice Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Rise Interactive.

    Interview Details

    Rise tends to hire in spurts so you may apply & get a phone call soon after. From there you take an online exam and if you pass you then go through a more thorough interview process.

    Since the hiring is in spurts, if you apply at a time between those spurts your process might take quite awhile and the communication isn't always the best.

    However, once you have one or a few live, in-office, interviews then the process should be fairly swift.

    Interviews for me weren't high pressure, they were fairly casual. The test you take online is generally for a skills fit & the interviews are more of culture fit.

    Negotiation Details
    They will try to stonewall you with stuff about policy and standard offers with this position. You can try to push those boundaries a bit if you want.

    Internet Marketing Apprentice Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Rise Interactive in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied online at the Rise Interactive website and recieved an email shortly thereafter asking me to take a skills test at my leisure. I took the test- pretty easy, just basic algebra disguised as marketing and a couple verbal questions. After that, I waited a few days and received another email asking to set up a phone interview. I set up the interview, but when the day came, did not receive a phone call at the expected time! (9:00am) Finally, around 9:45, I called the HR person I set up the interview with, thinking I had done something wrong or made some mistake with scheduling. However, I was informed that the person's, "boss had stepped in," and she had, "totally forgetten to call me." I was a little annoyed, but she promised to call at 10:00. At around 10:15, she called and we had the interview.

    It was very basic, just basic questions and information about the position, including salary information. They told me the position is salaried at $20k until you are moved into a consulting position after 4 months, which then moves you to about $35k. I was ok with that, even though it's a big pay cut for me for the first few months. I was told to keep in touch with the HR person as they only hire a few people every month. She told me to contact her around the middle of the next month.

    When that date rolled around, I emailed her asking about the position. I waited, and waited, and waited some more. After about a week, I called and left her a voicemail. I then waited, and waited, and waited. Finally, I received an email from a DIFFERENT HR person, saying that they had noticed I had taken the skills test and would like to set up a phone interview. I emailed back saying I had already been through that process, but would be happy to do another interview. The new person acted kind of confused and annoyed. (I would be too, if my co-worker had not notified me of what was going on.) She told me that that would not be necessary, and we set up an in-person interview after about another week of waiting for a response on my end.

    The in-person interview was very basic; she didn't even ask me much about my experience. She used basic get-to-know-you questions, which I thought I answered very well. She told me that she had to talk things over with the marketing teams as they are the ones that pick the final candidates and, if I was chosen, we would do another interview. After about a week, I had not heard anything, so I sent an email asking if any decisions had been made. Two weeks later, I still had not heard anything, so I called and left a voicemail. About a week after that, she left me a voicemail saying she still had to go over my application with the teams. A few days later, she called me with a rejection. I also received an email rejection with some resources for job-hunters in Chicago.

    In all, the process was extremely disorganized, and I felt I had to do most of the work for the HR people. After two months of chasing them around, I was disappointed with a rejection, but I feel I may not have wanted to work for such a disorganized place. If you are applying and waiting for a response, don't hold your breath.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Rise Interactive in July 2012.

    Interview Details

    Was referred to by a friend of a friend, took an online test that was just algebra disguised as online advertising, went down to the office and met with HR and head of Paid search. Was then called back to the office two days later and met with head of search. Took them a week to get back to me with a rejection, however it was the nicest rejection i've ever received it included a list of resources to learn more about SEO, organizations I should join, references to two headhunters, and the HR woman referred me to their sister company where I am currently working.

    The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Rise Interactive in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    I took a test on excel & wrote a letter to the clients. It was fairly easy but was a little weird with the format to use formulas. I would suggest using formulas though, its a lot faster.

    I passed that and had a phone interview.

    They asked basic questions about my background and were interested in which of their products I was most interested in working with. I followed up a few days after the interview by asking another question. They answered as if I was a new applicant so I guess I didn't make the best impression and I also noticed they barely read my email, haha.

    Internet Marketing Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Rise Interactive in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I initially took an aptitude test as my first screening round which they give you an hour to complete. I was expecting a personality test or something basic, but it was basically a whole bunch of advertising and math equations. If you're good at algebra, you're fine, but it took me way too long to figure out how simple it actually was, so I took the entire hour to the minute.

    It took them about 10 days to offer me a phone interview, which I was really excited for and extremely prepared. Once talking to the recruiter, it was as if she was reading off of a script. She flushed through the "company description" in a really bored and unenthusiastic tone. Didn't she know she had to sell the company to me? Then, she asked me the same question twice, just rephrasing it. It was as if she couldn't remember if she had already asked it, so she just asked it again.

    Overall, the interview was awkward and uncomfortable. Because of this, I ultimately decided to withdrawal from the application process.

    Be prepared for UNDERprepared recruiters, and don't be afraid to ask questions, because if you think they are being confusing, THEY ARE!

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Rise Interactive in September 2011.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume online at the Rise Interactive website. Almost immediately, I received and email from Human Resources telling me that I was an eligable candidate and that they would like me to take a skills test. I set up a time to take the skills test and took it a week later. The test consisted of two excel spreadsheets and a written test. The next day I received and email from HR stating that I passed the test and that they would like to move forward. I scheduled an interview for the next week. I interviewed with a girl from HR. It was a half hour interview and pretty basic. When it comes to the interview, it is important to know a lot about the company and why you would like to work there. A week later I received a phone call and email extending me an offer for the position. The whole interview process was smooth, timely, and professional.

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Rise Interactive in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume to Rise via Doostang and was emailed back asking to schedule a time to take a skills test that consisted of solving problems on an Excel spreadsheet and writing a letter with certain guidelines. It was a fairly straight forward exam, and they give you an hour to complete it. After that, HR emailed me and we scheduled an interview in their Chicago office.

    I showed up a bit early, and the general atmosphere of the place was fairly busy. Most of the people working here seem to be in their 20's or early 30's, and it definitely has a youthful feel to the place. I ended up interviewing with five different people, and most of the questions were just common get-to-know-you questions to determine whether or not I was a good fit for the company. There was one process detail question thrown in, and after the interview they said I'd hear from them in a week or so.

    It took about 10 days for them to get back to me, and we scheduled a phone interview that took place about three weeks after my in-person interview. About two weeks after that, I got an offer.
