Average Interview

Senior Associate, Marketing Interview

Senior Associate, Marketing
Barcelona (Spain)

I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Vistaprint in June 2012.

Interview Details – At first, the screening process seemed to go quite smooth. 3 telephone interviews (HR and Marketing) on which I received a very positive feedback. Though, after these interviews I got a phone call from HR in which they informed me that they were ending the financial year (balance sheets), so after this I would receive the invitation to the ‘on-site interview day’ a few weeks later. No problem.

The HR manager called me a few weeks later and told me the job I was heading for, was changed (now, it included more responsibilities). Ok, no problem at all.
I was told that I would get an invitation for the on-site interview day in Barcelona later that week. I was actually surprised that I received an invitation for an online assessment first. Ok, no problem. I didn’t mention it and did the analytical test (feedback: scored very well). From here I finally received the on-site invitation. In the program of the on-site invitation was a presentation of an hour in which I had to present an assignment. The assignment was actually sent (after asking when I would receive the case!) 2 days before the on-site day. The assignment was 1 slide, very generic information.
Overall, the day on-site went quite well. They told me I was the only candidate. I did the presentation, which went quite well. Though, they asked me questions about something they forgot to put in the assignment. Failure of the marketing manager who had written the assignment. The 1-1 interviews (5 in total) were sometimes more formal than others, no questions kept me puzzled though and the tour through the building gave me the feeling that this company is young and vibrant. They told me I would hear the result of my interviews very soon.
When I still didn’t hear anything after 4 days I send an email to the HR manager. She told me that she still hasn’t spoken with all of the interviewers. Then, 3 days later I received the call in which they told me I was too theoretical and didn’t get the role. Duh.
Though I was disappointed about the result, I was then again shocked by all the reviews from candidates and employees working (or worked) in Barcelona for Vistaprint (Vistatrapped, management by fear, heads cut off, fired, continuous stress etc).

From sending my cv to the final (negative) feedback 3 months passed by. Travelling expenses were reimbursed within 2 weeks. Cheers to that.

Difficult Interview

Senior Associate, Marketing Interview

Senior Associate, Marketing

The process took 2 days - interviewed at Vistaprint in July 2011.

Interview Details – This was one of the worst interviewing experiences I have encountered. 4 hours of interviews stacked back to back. That is fine, been there done that but generally people take the time to ask you if you need water, a break or just a general pulse on how you are holding up.

Interview Question – You are asked to problem solve a scenario they describe to you in no or little details.   View Answer
