    Marketing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience

    Interview

    They interview anyone who turns in a resume. They market many different positions and make them sound glamorous, but it's all for the same position. It's to work a booth at Sam's making minimum wage to try and sell products for commission. The interview will only ask a few questions about yourself. They will then try to make the job sound fancy with ridiculously higher numbers than you will really make and suggesting travel.

    The pay is too low for the work it requires. I really do not appreciate skirting around the truth of the job and what it entails. They need to tell people what the job really is. It is not a marketing job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cornerstone Events.

    Interview

    I was initially contacted by the HR department/receptionist at corner stone events to come in for an interview. While I waited for the interview the receptionist called several other candidates and repeated the same to all of them. The interview was sketchy. He did not really answer questions asked or provide information about the duties of the job. Each time the question was asked about the detailed of the job he started talking about other things. I was real weary about that place. It did not seem to have everything together. Also, the real job is to sell things inside Sams and Costco

    Marketing Interview

    Interview

    The interview was like a movie. I felt like I stepped into the office across the hall from the office in Being John Malcovich. As I walked in, the "boss" was sexually harassing the secretary. Then he realized I was in the room and straightened up to shake my hand. I was asked to fill out a form, during which I heard the secretary/ "H/R" person have the exact same conversation she had with me on the phone. When I was called in, the best way I can describe the interview was: clammy and scammy. The guy nervously tried to explain what the job would be by using absolutely no specifics or nouns. I tried to get a straight answer from the guy, asking hardball questions like: What would my daily duties entail? Or what would I actually be doing everyday? Questions I would never have to ask if he had been somewhat clear. He stepped around those simple questions. "Well like I said, you'd be training to become a marketing manager".....for 6 months. He also kept saying things like "wouldn't you like to make $75,000 a year like me?" Which I found grossly unprofessional. The whole thing, down to the cheesy art on the walls reeked of SCAM. Apparently running a kiosk in Sam's Club in the evenings and on the weekends is some how a derivation of "Marketing". Save your gas money, there is nothing here for you.

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Interview

    Interviewed in some cramped little room in a shared office. Asked about Marketing, and I gave him answers. Turns out the job is NOT at all what you'd expect. You'd be the person giving out samples. Terribly disingenuous to advertise these positions as marketing positions instead of what they are. Major turn-off. Check their website for spelling and grammar--you're sure to find plenty of mistakes. He tries to fool people with stock photography of corporate environments. What a joke.

    Job seems very scammy. Disingenuous job postings. No marketing grad wants to give out samples at Sam's Club.

    Assistant Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New Orleans, LA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cornerstone Events (New Orleans, LA) in December 2013.

    Interview

    The initial call is from a fast talking receptionist. She will talk in circles about the position. Then you go in for an in person interview. They try to make it seem like the process is very selective. It's not. This interview is with the owner of the company. You still don't really know what the position is. He will send you on a third interview. It is in the "field". You will arrive a costco or a sams club. The interviewer will meet you at the door or the food court. You'll take a seat and they will tell you somethings about what you will see and give you a task. On the walk to the event, they will ask you a question. Answer carefully, it's a trick. You will watch them work for about 15 mins and then ask you to do what they did.. After this you go back to the food court where you will answer the task they gave you. They will tell you are wrong no matter how right you are. Then you get a sales pitch on the pay and the hours. Trust me, if it sounds too good to be true than it is.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cornerstone Events (New Orleans, LA) in June 2012.

    Interview

    Interview process was easy. They asked some basic marketing questions and showed up around what we would be doing in Sam's Club. The guy spent the rest of the time trying to sell us on the job, which was a major turn off. If the job is that great, you wouldn't need to sell me on it.

    Reasons for Declining

    The job was not what I though it was. The job description sounds like a great job in Marketing, but the reality is that you are standing at a kiosk annoying people in Sam's club to try a product at your booth. I felt like the interview was a waste of time. I should have known that when they said to meet at Sam's club but I was desperate and wanted to keep my options open, but I didn't go to school to be that annoying person at the mall.
