    Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Taycor Financial in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    I found the job posting for the internship on my university’s online career resource center. After reading the description, I emailed my resume and cover letter to the contact listed at the bottom of the page. The very next morning I received an email back from the same contact asking to set up a phone interview. He said he was very impressed by my cover letter and resume, and would love to further discuss my qualifications. We established a time for the conversation early the following week.

    The phone interview went very well. It was not intimidating and felt more like a natural conversation instead of a strict, formal interview. The interviewer began by asking me about my previous position and the types of tasks I was used to completing. He also asked me what I ultimately wanted to do with my marketing major. After I described my experiences and goals, he proceeded to tell me about Taycor and what exactly it does. He used analogies to break down the definition, which bettered my understanding of the company and its mission. The interviewer was very friendly and willingly answered any questions I had about the position and the firm. After our conversation, he invited me to come into the office for an in-person interview the following Thursday. Immediately after hanging up the phone, I received an email containing directions to the office and where to park. This was extremely helpful because parking in L.A. can sometimes be a nightmare!

    On the morning of the interview, I found the office and parked without any trouble. Upon entering Taycor’s suite, I was greeted by five or six people, including the person whom I had previously spoken with over the phone. Before we got in to talking about the job,the interviewer brought in my resume and offered me some helpful tips and constructive criticism. No company has ever done this for me before and I found it really cool that he wanted to better my resume, even if I did not end up getting the position. It was beneficial because he caught some structural errors that I never would have noticed on my own.

    The interviewer then went on to discuss what my job would consist of at Taycor. He was very honest and explained to me that I would be doing operations management—SEO and credit transactions. Afterwards, he went on to explain the company’s business model and broke it down into multiple, comprehensive steps. I really appreciated him taking the time to explain things so slowly because it gave me an understanding of the company as well as what exactly I would be doing each day. Again, the interview felt more like a casual conversation and I felt like I really fit in with the modern company culture. Apart from discussing the job, the interviewer also noted that my hours would be flexible. He told me he needed someone for Tuesdays and Thursdays and that I could pick any other day of the week to come in. He completely understood that I had a busy schedule and reassured me that if I needed to take a day off, it would be no problem. As a busy college student, I really appreciated this flexibility because I would be balancing 5 courses and an internship!

    He concluded the interview by offering me the position and I readily accepted. The interview experience with Taycor Financial was highly positive, and I would recommend anyone to pursue a career there.

    Summer Job Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Taycor Financial in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I first learned about Taycor Financial on LionJobs, my university's career website. The job title was simply "Flexible hours, easy work," and I was able to apply online directly through LionJobs by submitting my resume. The very next morning I received a phone call from the supervisor, who was extremely friendly. He wished to schedule an interview as soon as possible but was understanding about the fact that I had final exams coming up. We arranged an interview for the next week, about one week after I had initially submitted the resume.

    The interview itself went great. I was nervous because I hadn't been interviewed for a job since high school, but the supervisor was just as friendly in person as he was on the phone. He first complimented me on my resume and even pointed out the one slight technical flaw it had so I could make it even better. He then asked me to tell him a bit about myself. Next, he explained the basics of the company to me - what they do, why they do it, and how they do it. I had researched the company beforehand to get a sense of it but even a candidate who knew nothing about Taycor would have gained a perfect understanding of it after listening to his explanation.

    He went on to describe, in a very honest manner, what my particular job would entail. He used the metaphor of building a spaceship: if you instruct one person to build a spaceship, they will have to learn an impossible number of skills and perform an equally impossible number of tasks to complete the ship. But, if you instruct hundreds of different people to learn just one skill and perform that specific task, the process has now become much more efficient and realistic. He also compared it to an assembly line. He made it clear that my job would be comparable to "tightening a bolt over and over" on the "spaceship", and that if I was not interested in performing the same relatively mundane task over and over for days on end, then I should not take this job. I really appreciated his honesty. When I asked what kind of task I might have to do, he gave me two straightforward examples: collecting the logos of vendors off of their websites, or evaluating vendors' websites to see if they are a company that would be profitable for Taycor to work with.

    Of course I was not thrilled at the prospect of doing something so menial for days on end but Taycor seemed promising. I felt Taycor was definitely about to experience a lot of growth and that being a part of it would be a great experience. The pay is also quite good for such a simple job. Additionally, the supervisor mentioned that he really did mean it when he said "flexible hours" - if summer school got stressful and I needed a long weekend or needed to call it a day in order to study, he would gladly accommodate me. This is almost unheard of in a job and is obviously very appealing to a college student. So despite the relative unattractiveness of the job description itself, I found myself wanting to accept the offer.

    There was one added benefit for me in particular - the supervisor noticed I had put down writing as one of my skills on my resume and wondered if perhaps I could contribute to some of the marketing that Taycor was starting to focus on. Being involved in press releases etc. really excited me. He even said that it could possibly provide me with a chance to climb up a step from the "bolt-tightening" position (though this wasn't for certain at all). Walking into the interview, I didn't think I would be given an opportunity to be involved in marketing or even use my writing skills at all, so this was the highest point of the interview for me. I enjoyed that the supervisor was open-minded and noticed a skill perhaps irrelevant for the actual job he was offering and instead thought of a place in the company where I could apply that skill.

    He left me with an open offer and the option to take a week to think about it. I told him I had a couple more job interviews coming up and he urged me to take a better job if it came along. He also encouraged me to send him writing samples and even said that I may still be able to contribute some writing to Taycor despite committing to another job as my main job. I did not actually have many relevant writing samples on my current computer (i.e., news releases, reviews, how-to articles) so he said this wasn't a problem and that I could simply write a review here on glassdoor.com. I could tell he genuinely wanted me to excel, which was refreshing coming from someone who I had just met and who could have easily tricked me into accepting a job that would not utilize my skill set at all. I hope I can accept the offer to work at Taycor, even if it is just contributing to the writing and marketing.

    Overall, I appreciated the kindness, flexibility, clarity, and most importantly honesty that I encountered during this interview process with Taycor Financial. I would recommend any interested candidate to pursue a job at this company.

    Vendor Relations Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Taycor Financial in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I learned of the job opportunity through a friend at my school. I then sent over an email, with my resume attached, to the contact she had referred me to. I promptly received a return email asking if I would like to come in for an interview. We established a time, and the interviewer told me their exact office location and where I should park, which was very helpful.

    The interview went very well. The interviewer was extremely friendly, and easy-going. He began by giving me a background and insight into the company. Describing the company as a whole, and the type of work that they do in the office. I had previously researched the company before the interview to get some background information, but I was able to better understand the company through the interview. He discussed the process of business that happens in the office, and how they we're looking for someone to help them with gathering information for their vendor database, whether it be gathering vendor contact information, or simply collecting logos from a vendor's website.

    We then discussed my resume. We went over some of the past jobs I have worked at, what I liked about them, etc. He complimented me on the format of my resume, and kindly gave me some tips to help improve it slightly, which I very much appreciated.

    The interviewer then went on to discuss the expectations of the job and what I would be doing. I had been given a brief idea of what the job would entail from my friend, and that it was not going to be a very "glamorous" job, as it consists mainly of repetitive computer tasks. However, the interviewer was very clear and honest in managing my expectations, letting me know that if I was not interested in performing the same tasks day to day, that this wouldn't be the right job for me. I really appreciated his straightforwardness and honesty in this situation, not giving me a false impression of what I would be doing.

    He discussed the hours and pay of the job, and spoke of how it is a very flexible job in that if you have a lot going on and simply need an extra day off that it would be no problem. As a busy college student knowing I would be taking a summer course simultaneously, this was very appealing to me.

    Overall, the interview was very professional and easy-going, and the interviewer was very kind and straightforward. I would highly recommend interested candidates to pursue a job with Taycor Financial.
