    Field Merchandiser Interview

    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Brother Industries (Bridgewater, NJ) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I went through at least 4 phone interviews, which were very basic and getting to know one and other but were completely unnecessary considering they were 30 minutes each. The phone interviews that took almost 2 months because they were constantly changing the date and time. After completing the 4 interviews you go in and have to make a presentation on any brother product. This was harder than you think considering how much could you say about a printer without being repetitive and boring. After the presentation you go and meat the VP of sales and if all goes well they offer you the job.

    They also claim its a sales position yet youre actually a field merchandiser for at least a year. This is basically doing tradeshows and presenting the product. You also get no commision. It is 35k salary with driving up to 100 miles a day.

    In my opinion it would save everyone in the process time and money if there were not as many phone interviews. One or two phone interviews is enough before having to go in for a face to face.

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Brother Industries (Bridgewater, NJ) in September 2012.

    Interview

    I was first given a three-part copywriting test. I was asked to edit a poorly written release, and write marketing material based on given specifications. I passed these tests and then was invited to interview with a marketing executive, followed by an interview with the HR manager. I thought the interview with the executive went very well, and was then introduced to the rest of the marcomm team before being handed over to the HR manager.
