Getting an Interview
Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Roll Global.

PR Intern Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
Interviewed at Roll Global
Interview Details – I first met up with the HR manager. She asked me to go over my resume and then asked some questions. I was then told that I would be meeting up with some other team members. One lady came and the same process happened. Two other PR members were supposed to interview me but was held up at meeting. Two other ladies became substitute but didn't really seem to know what to ask.
Interview Question – Asked pretty basic stuff. For example, what do you usually read? Answer Question
Public Relations Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 12 months - interviewed at Roll Global in March 2011.
Interview Details – I was asked to come in and interview for a marketing/PR advertised position for Paramount Farms, specifically the Wonderful Pistachios team. After making me wait 20 minutes, the HR woman finally showed up (I was on time.) She led me to a boardroom with a huge window facing a brick wall and adjacent rooftop. After a few general questions and glancing at my resume before tossing it aside, she left to go find the marketing manager for that team, the person who would be supervising this new hire.
Another woman walked in and seemed unprepared and like she didn't care at all. No eye contact and no personality. There was no detailed job description printed out and she honestly said to me, "I don't know how I ended up in PR. I'm a nutritionist." She said they had many applicants, but they weren't looking to hire until the next quarter. I had many questions about this position I was extremely interested in and when asked asking about specific duties, she said I would be "more of an assistant. Ya know, answering phones and preparing goodie bags for events." My college and professional experience were never questioned.
She got up to leave and I sat there. Forever. Waiting for the HR woman or anyone to come back. No one did. I walked out after 20 more minutes and found my own way downstairs. What a waste of time and energy. They never contacted me to say anything. I never heard a "yes," "no" "get lost" nothing. I wrote them off and decided I would never want to work there anyway since they obviously have no respect for people's time or talent. They just don't care.
Interview Question – What do you know about this company? Answer Question
Retail Sales Merchandiser Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Roll Global in February 2010.
Interview Details – Two of the top regional marketing execs interviewed me. They greeted me and commented on how young all of the applicants were. They were very condescending. They ignored my college degree and asked several questions about my high school experience. I was very disappointed in the overall nature of the interview but Ive noticed that many employees at Roll seem very happy.
Interview Question – Tell us about your highschool experience. Answer Question
Marketing/Brand Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Roll Global in January 2010.
Interview Details – Not very impressed, felt as if the interview process was very unprofessional and disorgranized. Interviewed for a Marketing position where the job description said one thing and then went in and the interviewing manager said another. Also qualifications they had listed were not exact to what the hiring manager really wanted.
People were nice but didn't get a good vibe. Hiring manager said that if this is a place where you are looking to stay long term and bulid a career than it is best to look somewhere else.
Commercial Finance Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Roll Global in September 2011.
Interview Details – The initial communication started with an e-mail from an HR personnel. Once the phone screening process was done, I was invited to the office for face-to-face interview. The interview went pretty smooth with bunch of behavioral questions. Later the interviewer opened up the conversation for questions. It seemed like the office environment was pretty relaxed.
Interview Question – If you were to get an offer and accept the job, do you want to stay at this company for next 5, 10 years? If so, why? or why not? Answer Question
Marketing Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Roll Global in April 2011.
Interview Details – The interview process was very long-winded and not very organized. It was also clear that there was some confusion about the position they were hiring for within the group. There had recently been a lot of lay-offs which made the ambience a bit tense and uncomfortable.
Interview Question – What makes you the right candidate for this position over anyone else? After asking, the interviewer continued to dig. Answer Question
