    Campaign Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Cardlytics (Atlanta, GA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I was referred to Cardlytics by a previous employee. During the interview process, I had an initial phone interview and then a week later, I had an in-person interview with three separate groups: two one-on-ones and one group of three. The in-person interview was actually fun and the group of three asked out-of-the-box questions in addition to normal questions. The one-on-ones were more business-oriented and asked more stereotypical interview questions. I also had to take a skills test at the end where I had to give my opinion on an advertising campaign proposal and do some math to calculate percentage increases. I was told it would take up to two weeks to hear back about whether I got the job or not. I emailed one day before the two-week mark asking about the status of my application and for any updates regarding the process. I received back what seemed to be a form letter saying I didn’t get the job and it was worded in a way that made me wonder if I would have gotten that information had I not emailed inquiring about it. I was excited about the job and the culture of the company and the employees were very nice during my interview, but I was turned off by the detached and impersonal nature of the follow-up email.

    Interview Questions

    • The one-on-ones asked standard interview questions like "Tell me about your background," "What was a mistake you've made in your job and how did you handle it," and "What do you like and not like about your former or current employers." The group interviewers had a mix of more atypical questions like "What's your spirit animal," What's your favorite movie," and "What's the last book you read," in addition to normal questions like "Where do you see yourself in five years."   Answer Question

    Interview

    After applying online I was contacted by HR to set up a phone interview. I would meet with a panel of the team I would be working with. HR seemed enthusiastic and eager to establish several days that would work best for me as well as the panel I would interview with.

    ETL Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Declined Offer

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Cardlytics.

    Interview

    That place is a sweat shop. The developers look like they are miserable and packed into 2 rooms like sardines -no cubicles- and no space between the desks. There's no way I'd ever work there. THey said - no work from home and they believe in "working hard and playing hard." "Playing hard" is going to 6-flags on a company trip as a bonus for working so hard. I'm a well seasoned Senior developer and have worked in several environments over the past 10 years. This is the most unhealthy sad work environment I've seen to date. They have an extra ridiculous interview process by shutting you into this small dingy dirty room with poor lighting and request that you complete 50 questions in 50 mins. :)) starting from your interview, you will work to be miserable there.

    Interview Questions

    • This is a written exam with no multiple-choice or true/false questions. there were very basic-advanced T-SQL development questions - like text-book questions - dmvs, indexing, keys, define a relational db… Nothing to do with the job requirements- 0 ETL or BI questions. They asked 2-3 questions where you will need to revise and create code.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Cardlytics (Atlanta, GA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    This process was more than 6 weeks. I interviewed with the recruiter extensively. He set up a phone interview with one of the partners at Cardlytics. Spoke with him, he loved me. Said next step would be to talk with his partner. More than 6 weeks went by while I was waiting to hear back. Finally spoke with the partner. He was kind of a jerk. I was offered another position and shared that with the recruiter. He said the company was interested in me and would be offering me the job. I held off for a week before accepting the other position. They drag their feet. Very wishy washy.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at Cardlytics (Atlanta, GA) in May 2010.

First person I spoke with was a manager and he invited me to a coffee shop to chat. Really informal besides one light case question. 2nd round was 3 30-minute interviews with employees at the company. Went very smooth as well.

    You need to fit the culture and be an independent thinker who can work within a small growing business and is more about getting things done rather then waiting for the system to provide you a promotion.
