    Instructional Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Bisk Education in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    A few days after I submitted my resume, I received a call about the position. HR sent me a 3-part assessment. Two parts had to do with writing objectives and one part consisted of formatting a lecture/notes according to their style guide. The assessment was very fair not not particularly difficult. I had an interview the following week, negotiated a salary the next week and started working the next. It was all very quick and very rewarding.

    The interview itself was relaxed, but straightforward. They asked a lot of questions about project management and processes. They seemed genuinely interested in my past experiences and skills. They were more concerned with what I would term "personality" issues than skill level. To loosely quote the interviewer, "I can teach a person instructional design; I can't teach them how to not be a jerk." Now that I've worked here for about 8 months, I can see that they've cultivated a group of IDs who are soft-spoken, somewhat introverted, self-motivated, love to learn, and are open to asking for and receiving help from others.

    HR was very attentive during the whole process and returned calls and email quickly. It was a fairly painless process that made me feel valued. I was treated like a person and not just another "applicant."

    Quick and easy. Within just a few days they called with an offer. I shared that I was expecting a little more and the HR rep talked to the VP and called me back within an hour. We met half-way. The offer was fair and I was very satisfied.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Bisk Education in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process is pretty standard. I met a hiring manager at a career fair, submitted a resume, and was contacted in about two weeks. The first interview was with the manager I met at the career fair. This focused on experience, skills, and how I'd fit within the corporate culture. Just after getting home I was contacted by the HR rep for a second round interview. This interview was one on one with a higher level manager. This interview was difficult as it focused more on thought process and how I handled strange questions rather than on specific skills or experience.

    Online Advertising Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Bisk Education.

    Interview Details

    The process was very, very long and drawn out. I was contacted by Bisk HR just a few days after sending my resume, then scheduled for a phone interview about a week later which went very well.

    From there it was about 6 weeks of nothing but playing email tag with HR who insisted that I stay in contact. I was finally scheduled for an in-person interview about 8 weeks after the process began, which was canceled once, then rescheduled. After the interview I had to wait another 2 months before hearing their final decision. The entire process from first contact to final decision; about 5 months.

    To the interview itself:

    I first met with my HR rep who was nice enough, and we discussed salary & benefits. But I just could not believe it when she told me that new employees are given No Vacation days their first year, then only 5 their second year. That was a complete deal breaker for me, and I went into the actual interview knowing I did not want to work here. I value work/life balance far to much to work for a company that doesn't share these values, and I don't understand how a company like this can expect to attract any sort of talent while offering a deal like that to anybody.

    The interview itself was a lot more intense than I expected. It felt much more like an interrogation than an interview. I wasn't made to feel particularly welcome, than I was led to conference room where three managers at once would interview me in a very direct, non-conversational manner. My interview performance was sub-par because my heart just wasn't in it at this point. I answered their questions, but all I wanted to do was leave. It probably showed. At one point, one of the hiring managers actually seemed to get slightly angry. All I had asked him was "What is the day to day routine like? And I asked about corporate culture". It was quite telling that this person was a hot head who I would not enjoy working with

    I was finally contacted about 2 months after the interview and told I wasn't being offered the job. That was fine. I didn't do any sort of follow up, and I had no desire to work for Bisk at this point anyway. I would not have accepted even if offered the position or would have at least asked for a minimum of 2 weeks PTO time as part of my package.

    Judging the job listings, this place has a LOT of turnover. I'm not surprised by that, but I am surprised they can get anybody to work here at all. The process took forever for a company that I felt just wasn't offering anything to anybody with any skills.

    From the moment I walked in, I did not get a very positive vibe about this company and walking out I was convinced I didn't want to work here. The office felt very cold and uninviting. It just felt unhappy, and the type of place people "end up" instead of actively pursue.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked to work out a lot of hypothetical scenarios. "What would I do in X case?", "How would I handle it if X happened to Y, but Y was Z?"

      A lot of them seem almost impossible to answer without knowing anything about how the company operates.
