Very Easy Interview

Editor Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Allrecipes.com.

Interview Details – It's a bright, cool-looking office with a nice view of Westlake Park. Really nice receptionist. The interview was extremely casual and frankly, not very professional. Just "tell me about yourself," then proceeding to talk about budgetary problems at the company (as explanation for why it was a now a contract role). Commented on what I was wearing in a weird way.

Interview Question – The interviewer did not ask any difficult questions. Didn't seem to astute as to what would be really challenging and necessary questions.   Answer Question

Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Seattle, WA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Allrecipes.com in February 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process was very typical. I spoke briefly with a recruiter who set up a further call (via email) with the hiring manager. I spoke with the hiring manager for about an hour and was asked to come in for an interview. I interviewed with 5 different people. The hiring manager didn't get as much time with me as she wanted so asked me to come back for a brief chat over coffee. I was then scheduled to meet with the President (who interviews EVERYONE to ensure they are a culture fit...that is impressive). I was sent an offer a couple of days following my interview with the President.

Interview Question – Tell me about a time when you had a conflict with a fellow employee. What was the nature of the conflict and how did you resolve it?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Yes, I was able to negotiate. Consider the full compensation page and make your counter offer. Also, this company isn't known for paying top scale but the culture/environment/work-life balance make up for a few extra dollars.
