    Marketing Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Arbitron (Columbia, MD) in August 2010.

    Interview

    I found the interview process to be typical and professional. I met with a 3 people in the marketing department: one person who interacts directly with the position, and two management. Questions presented were typical interview question: tell me about your background, what makes you a good candidate for this position, what could you bring to the position. It went very smoothly, nothing unexpected.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your suggestions to make the department better?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    They were inflexible on negotiations. They had a number and presented it. I came back with my own number. Despite my being exceedingly qualified for the position, they only offered a slight increase up from their initial offer, the reasoning being 'this is our budget for the position.' My advice is to cover the topic of salary - even just a range -in the beginning stages of the interview process. This way, you don't go so far down the line and end up disappointed at the end.
