    Entry Level - Client Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dublin, OH

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Walker Marketing and Consultants (Dublin, OH).

    Interview

    Very Unprofessional! Very Misleading! I applied online and heard back from their recruiter within a couple hours. I agreed to go in for an initial interview the next day. When I walked in, there was music playing in the lobby and a girl at the front desk dressed VERY unprofessionally. While she was very nice and talked to me about my weekend plans, I was immediately suspicious. I was interviewed by the CEO and he was nice. Throughout the interview, it felt more like a conversation as he reviewed my resume and answered my questions. I was assured that it was not "sales" and it was potentially a cool opportunity with a great deal of growth. I left feeling a bit more optimistic and when they called me back that afternoon to request a follow up interview, I accepted as I was curious to learn more. The second interview consists of an all day shadow (9am-5pm). This would give me the opportunity to see first hand what I would be doing. When I arrived I was paired up with two team members. Again, I was surprised by the way women dressed (first impressions are important). This is when I found out that I would spend my entire day in Dayton, OH. I should have spoken up and declined the invitation, but I continued to go along with the day. Frustrated and stuck in Dayton, I felt very mislead and unprepared for the day ahead of me. We spent the day going door to door to different business. There is a great deal of independence in this position, meaning that you must have incredible self-motivation and time-management. While I was told otherwise, this job is sales, which means you are working off of commission. I was very underwhelmed by the professionalism of this company and my day of shadowing only reinforced this. I learned the hard way! Do your research, ask the right questions and trust your gut!

    Interview

    first round was hold by the CEO of the company, several usual questions like what is your gold, what's your experience. Then the second round would be like traveling around with a sales man in the company, knock the doors to sale the utility. I don't really like this process, so i ruined my interview in purpose.

    Client Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Walker Marketing and Consultants (Dublin, OH) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Made it into the 1st Interview where the office itself is very remote and small. In a series of mini buildings there is a small office on the second floor where the interviews took place. Some people might be intrigued to go apply for this position considering it is a marketing job but it is more a sales job where you have to travel alot without compensation for gas, only offered a starting position which is only minimum wage + commission. So if your looking to commute to a new living area to work here I would advise against it. I only submitted an application early in the morning Monday and was contacted within mere hours for an interview the following day. The first interview is a 10- 20 Minute sit down and go over the basics. If you get called in for a second interview you have to shadow for an entire day and then brought back to the office at the end of the day for a third (final) interview.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Walker Marketing and Consultants.

    Interview

    I should have gone with my instincts on this one and cancelled my interview. I visited the website to gather a little bit more information on this company. I also wanted to do a little bit more research as the interview confirmation email listed a position other than the one I had applied for. I feel like the website in itself should have been enough to keep me away but I figured it'd be better to not judge a book by it's cover (or a company by its website in this case) Upon first entering I was greeted by a receptionist wearing a ridiculously short miniskirt. I was a little bit confused because the confirmation email states that the interview is business formal. She hands you a form with several basic questions. Are you presently employed is one. While waiting to be interviewed the receptionist answered the phone, greeting as human resources. She was also making small chat with other candidates about what type of music they listen to and where they live. In between her chatty questions they candidates were discussing a lot of things that you just don't discuss in front of people that you're looking to get hired by. This made me question the caliber of employees this company brings in if these were the candidates up against me. They were running late on interviews, which is okay, but a candidate that was scheduled to interview before me showed up after me and was still taken back before me. I pretty much knew that I wanted nothing to do with this company but went through with the interview for the fun of it- just to see what they would say. They ask basic interview questions such as salary expectations. The one question that threw me off was when I was asked how I feel about travel. My interviewer went on a big tangent about how they took the receptionist on an all expense paid trip to Miami and they stayed a floor below where they shoot the Kardashian's show. You can tell just by being in the office that it's just NOT that kind of company and they'll say anything to lure desperate, potential employees in.

    Consultant Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Walker Marketing and Consultants (Dublin, OH) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Submitted my resume through Monster and was contacted by a HR Rep the next day. I was informed that the interview process would be in three stages, initial in person review, full day ride-along, and final interview. I was able to setup an appointment immediately. I attended the first interview in which I met with management. We went over the company's attributes and established a basis for the second stage. The first interview was brief, as if they were testing your abilities to be professional rather than taking a strong interest in your qualifications. I was invited to attend the second stage in which I would shadow an employee, however I respectfully declined because the position was not as described in the posting, and I had no interest.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Walker Marketing and Consultants (Dublin, OH) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for a position with Walker Marketing & Consulting about 6 months ago following a relocation and the very beginning of a new job search. I was contacted by phone to schedule an interview after submitting an online application. When I returned the phone call, the scheduling assistant was pleasant and made sure that I had the correct driving directions for the interview. When I arrived at the street address for the interview, it seemed to be some sort of budget hotel converted into an office park in a very corporate area of Dublin, Ohio. There were a steady stream of candidates with cheap suits milling around the parking lot going into and out of the interview office. The office itself was fairly unimpressive with the receptionist sitting behind a large desk which looked to have been acquired from an office auction and a small radio playing loudly at her side. I was asked to fill out some paperwork before the interview and handed the standard clipboard you would receive at a first time doctor's visit. As I sat in the waiting area, I had more of a feeling that I was waiting for my car at a quickservice oil change shop than an interview except that most oil change places have better decor. I knew something was wrong when the questionaire requested my D.O.B. and S.S. number and mentioned that part of the interview process involved a field interview day with a representative which required that I sign some sort of permission for. Needless to say, I left the personal, sensitive information section blank. When I was called for my interview, I was escorted back with the interview representative who seemed extremely young and nervous. It was almost as if O.S.U. was conducting some sort of psychology controlled experiment. The office where I was interviewed was sparsely furnished and as I glanced around, the interviewer must have noticed and was quick to mention that the office was in the process of being renovated. The interview itself consisted of some very basic questions such as, " What are some of your strengths and weaknesses?" and "Why are you interested in Walker M. & C.?" The young interviewer seemed as nervous as me (although I was really more entertained at what a joke this all was at this point and thinking about the gas I wasted coming here) and had very little to say when asked why the company had no review by the Better Business Bureau. I was told that the next step in the interview process would be the "field interview day" and I would be contacted later in the week if I seemed like a good candidate. I was never contacted so I guess that I did not make the cut, however, I honestly did not follow up either since I had such a bad feeling about this company and thought that this might be a scam of some nature.
