    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Acxiom (Foster City, CA) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a Recruiter, who then arranged fora phone interview with another recruiter at Acxiom. After clearing this interview, i was scheduled for another phone interview with the Hiring Manager. On the day of the interview i got no call from the Manager! I was surprised and contacted the 2nd recruiter to understand if the position was still open or closed. This recruiter had no idea what had happenend, but was very honest and contacted me back again after couple of days and rescheduled the interview with Hiring Manager. Then i was called for an onsite interview with Hiring Manager. I was expecting to meet others on the team, but it was just this 1 person.Anyway, the interview went well, i was asked relevant questions around Software QA Management, process and Test Automation experience. After couple of days i got a call from recruiter saying i was very close, but they made an offer to another person for the job.

    Interview

    A recruiter found me on Monster and sent me a description of the role and a questionnaire. I filled it out and sent it to her, but no response! I would've appreciated some feedback, even if just to say that they weren't interested. A little strange that she reached out to me first but oh well.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Acxiom (Little Rock, AR) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Applied for a business analyst position through my university career website. Got a call at 9:30 pm on a Sunday that they were interested in interviewing me. I was invited to a meeting for technical recruits that went a lot like a shareholders meeting. A recruiter discussed the direction of the company, and alluded to a major expansion in the works. The next day I interviewed with someone from the department in which I would work. He was very much interested in my understanding of technical language and my ability to translate for business people. There were no "gotcha" questions to be had, and it genuinely felt like a conversation. He did press me a couple of times to be more detailed or to expand on a few ideas. The interview lasted about 30 minutes, then I was sent back to my original recruiter contact. She said she would be in touch, and now I'm waiting for a response.

    Technical Writer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Conway, AR
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Acxiom (Conway, AR) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Interviewed twice for separate positions. The technical writer interview consisted of multiple persons (nine?) on the "team" within a conference room. Aside from the awkward conferencing of 3 people via phone, the interview was quite uncomfortable due to the effort, or lack thereof, members engaging in the interview process, whether by body-language or physical appearance by participants on the team, All preparation went down the drain wanting to excuse non-participants from the interview. If this was considered a "test" to see how one performs under pressure, it was horribly, choreographed. Never had a follow-up, wasn't expected. Second interview, one year later for Team Leader, consisted of two individuals, the Manager of team leaders and the exiting team leader. Very laid back, very comfortable. Not in a conference room, more like a lounge. Offered the position but declined, transition was not financially lucrative.

    Interview Questions

    • Technical Writer- In referencing my resume, asked why I would hold a position in which I was overqualified (question posed by individual not wanting to be there)...Answer- "Just graduated college; needed experience, insurance,and to be a productive member of society." Team Leader- It was such a casual conversation with the two interviewers, I really didn't think I was going to be offered the position, so I was able to be myself and chalk it up to experience.   1 Answer

    Reasons for Declining

    Team Leader offer was for 55k, expected more.
