    Marketing Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at ALM.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very easy. HR was very timely, never left me waiting. Questions were as expected (what's your greatest strength, weakness, name a time you faced a work challenge and how did you work through it etc.). I heard back right away after my interview via a phone call from the hiring manager which I thought added a nice personal touch.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked a few metric-related questions when I spoke of my success at my previous job. I would say as a marketer, to come prepared to an interview with a few key metrics in the back of your head.   Answer Question

    Editorial Interview

    Interview Details

    Interview was a long time ago, I don't remember it fully. But the company was under different management then, so it's not really relevant to the current situation. Back then, I had the impression that it wasn't a perfect place to work but it might be a good place to start. If I had to do it all over again, I wouldn't. I had no idea things would get this bad.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked why I left my previous job. Also what type of people I liked to work with. Nothing too crazy.   Answer Question

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at ALM in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was applying through the career center of our school and had an onsite interview with a senior director. The interview was about 20 minutes. First, I was asked to introduce myself. And then answer several questions about my resume. The interviewer also asked me why I would like to work at ALM.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at ALM.

    Interview Details

    Initial phone interview was easy, a few questions about your resume and qualifications. If you maintain that you are a closer and can back it up with some proof on your resume they will bring you in for an in person interview with an HR person and a manager for the group you would work in. The two round interview took about one hour and there were a lot of standard interview questions. There was also a personality/skills test to take online.

    Asking tough questions about employee turnover, average commissions earned and average sales statistics will give you an idea if this is the job for you pretty quickly.

    Interview Questions
    • There was a personality screening that had a bunch of odd questions. If you give off the vibe that you will make 100 cold calls a day to win business you will get a call back.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    There are better jobs out there with better outlook. Pay was OK. High turnover rate.

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at ALM in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    Meet with quite a few people. Most seemed to be too busy to really get into any kind of meaningful conversation - checking email / taking phone calls. Office seemed to be pretty well organized. Apart from the bad interview techniques most people seemed to be really nice.
