Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager

I applied online and the process took 2+ months - interviewed at AOL.

Interview Details – Interviewed for a Marketing Manager position. Process took 11 weeks, speaking with over 10 different people throughout. Was told after 5th interview that it was the final round, and then 5 additional people were added on over the course of another 5 weeks. Extreme lack of transparency through entire process.

Interview Question – The final interview is with a "cultural ambassador" who asks questions to ensure that your values align with AOL's mission and values. Completely unnecessary....   Answer Question

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
New York, NY

I interviewed at AOL in February 2013.

Interview Details – I was recruited through my school's job board. They were actually very friendly and sent me an e-mail asking me to interview with them and I gladly accepted.

There was three interview stages, and they ran for a total of about 1.5 hours. Many of the questions were behavioural, and they wasn't anything too out of the ordinary.

Interview Question – The cultural ambassador wants to assess your attitudes about dyanamic work environments... asks many behavioural questions that must be tied back to AOL's values   Answer Question

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Dulles, VA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at AOL in November 2012.

Interview Details – First, there is the phone interview to filter through the real candidates.

Then, you will have to come in for an in-person interview that will typically take 2 - 3 hours. The talent acquisition team has a comprehensive interview process the focuses on behavioral questioning. You need to be consistent with your answers with every interviewer you have. There is an entire booklet of questions that hiring managers can choose from to have his or her team ask you.

The cultural ambassador interview is probably the most unpredictable. You will be presented with scenarios and your response will be judged on how well they align with AOL's values. SO, LEARN AOL's values (www.corp.aol.com) prior to your interview. The cultural ambassador actually gives you a grade and it can affect your compensation. They take this stuff seriously.

Interview Question – How have you exhibited AOL's values in your previous position(s)?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – There isn't much negotiation. So be prepared to play hard ball.

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Reston, VA

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at AOL in November 2011.

Interview Details – Interviewed for a marketing manager role at Reston. Initial phone interview with corporate recruiter followed by second phone interview with hiring manager the following week. A few days later was invited in for a morning of 5 interviews and a tour of the AOL campus at Dulles with various team members. Interview style was relaxed, most questions were based on the resume/my experience. AOL is very focussed on ensuring a good corporate fit rather than just looking to see if you have the required skills. They expected me to ask quite a lot of questions. Final interview was with a cultural ambassador which was the most structured part of the process - a list of specific behavioural questions to gauge your attitudes and cultural fit for the organization.

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at AOL in August 2010.

Interview Details – Was called by a (contract) recruiter who asked me a few questions to determine fit at AOL. Then went into meet with the Director. The interview went THREE hours.

Later, I met with 3 other people (including group VP). Never received a call-back in regards to the position. It's been over a month and I'm not happy with how I was never notified, even if it was "no."

Interview Question – Please tell me how you fit in with the values of AOL?   Answer Question
