Marketing Specialist Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at 1100 Architect in May 2010.
Interview Details – I met with a key member of the marketing team who was very relaxed and pleasant. The interview was going well enough that she brought in one of the principals to meet with me and she left the room. He never greeted me, just asked me to move from the chair I was sitting in. He never smiled or expressed any happiness or excitement. He just sat and stared at me and hammered out questions without any feeling or reaction. I was not upset when they did not call me back because this is not the type of employer I am looking to work with. I have several years of experience in the AEC industry and acquired a position with a successful design based firm shortly after interviewing with 1100.
Interview Question – Would you move to another chair. View Answer
