    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at AARP.

    Interview Details

    Applied via LinkedIn with a resume and cover letter. Phone interview with talent manager went really well. Brought in for an interview with VP and team manager, extremely revenue driven. The building was huge, walking through the various floors, departments, and hallways, I just got a disconnected vibe—no smiles, no nods, no acknowledgement for another human being in an elevator with you, nothing. That didn't read super promising for a welcoming work environment.

    IT Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at AARP.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview with the recruiter that went very well and then I had one with the hiring manager that also went well. I then advanced to an in person interview with the hiring manager and a panel interview in DC. The panel interview was challenging but not because the questions were difficult, it was because for one hour you have 4 different people asking you totally unrelated questions. The only process the interview seemed to follow was that the questions were asked in a counter clockwise order. I never received any communication from anyone after I left the building. No one returned my phone call or email. I was really excited about this opportunity and company but now after being treated so poorly after the interview my only regret is going in the first place and trusting that a recruiter would be respectful. Everyone should be treated with common courtesy, even candidates. It has always been my policy to give feedback within three days whenever possible.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no difficult questions but I did find that the panel members had a hard time relating to industries outside of their own professional experience and you have only a minute or two per question to try to help them understand or relate. I believe individual interviews would work better for the position I was being interviewed for.   Answer Question

    AARP knew my expectations and matched it. I negotiated on few aspects. In hindsight I would have negotiated the title and the vacation time.
