PR Manager Interview

PR Manager
Wheeling, IL

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Accuquote in December 2011.

Interview Details – The process was manageable and solid. I was first contacted by someone in HR, and then moved through the process and exposed to different departments and different employees, some of who I would be working with and for (which helped). All involved were professional and responsive. Onboarding process was also smooth and comprehensive.

Interview Question – The interview process with the CEO was overwhelming.   Answer Question

Marketing Interview

Marketing
Wheeling, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Accuquote in February 2011.

Interview Details – There seems to be confusion between HR and the hiring department. Questions about relocation, remote work, salary, etc were always answered with "it depends." I had 2 rounds of phone interviews with the recruiter, and was asked the same basic questions about my background, salary requirements, and career goals both calls. For my writing test, there were no specific details provided about the assignment... and questions weren't answered with anything other than "we want to give you a blank slate to write whatever you want." However, I was later critiqued for not writing for the correct target audience... even though that information or requirement wasn't provided even though I specifically requested it.

During the phone panel interview, 3 people were on the call... but only one asked questions. While the questions were relevant to the position, it wasn't an open or comfortable dialog. It felt a little more like an interroragation with people watching behind a two-way mirror.

Interview Question – What is your favorite advertising medium to write in?   Answer Question

Software Internship Interview

Software Internship
Chicago, IL

The process took a day - interviewed at Accuquote in March 2009.

Interview Details – It was a phone interview. Someone from HR called me (20 minutes before the scheduled time, don't know whether it's a trick or what). She started asking about things academic records (past & current), work experiences, projects (they were interested in ColdFusion) and some simple HR qs like what ur goal in coming 5 yrs etc. It lasted about 15 minutes. After the interview she told me that she will contact me within 2 weeks whatever the result is. But 8 months passed, she did never contact me, didn't even send a rejection email. I think that's the basic courtesy we expect from our interviewer [:(]

Interview Question – What are the benefits of using ColdFusion over VS.Net?   Answer Question
