Social Media Manager Interview

Social Media Manager

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Coupons.com.

Interview Details – After 4 different interviews I found it very bureaucratic and kind of sad environment, people didn't look happy to be there and I didn't feel like they want a person with creative ideas for a creative job -Social media isn't 9-5.

Interview Question – If you have a great idea and your manager didn't go for it, what do you do?   View Answer

IT Interview

IT
Mason, OH

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Coupons.com in April 2014.

Interview Details – The interview process consisted of two calls, one of which was near two hours in length also several setup emails were customary. First an acknowledgement then a pre interview to match skills, not tailored to the job specifically but a general fit so to speak. You do seem to loose something online and over the phone but that is the world we now live in.

Interview Question – The questions were pretty standard questions, just trying to find a good fit for my skill set.   Answer Question

Campaign Manager Interview

Campaign Manager
Mountain View, CA

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Coupons.com in November 2011.

Interview Details – I was contacted via phone by an HR recruiter for a 30 minute interview. Apparently she was satisfied with my responses and asked me to come in to meet with the hiring team I'd be working with. Upon arrival, I was offered water and was shown around the common areas, then escorted into a conference room.

For the next few hours, I met with six different individuals. Some of them were a bit confused on their scheduled times to interview me and there was a bit of a last minute scramble for some of them to make it on time. All went well during the interviews. At the end of the process, I was told they would follow up with me if they were going to give me an offer. I didn't hear from them for several months. Luckily I wasn't desperate for a job, so this time lapse didn't phase me. The upside to waiting was that the offer was reasonable and I was able to give my current company two weeks notice.

Interview Question – The questions weren't too difficult. Mainly they asked about past experience, negotiating skills, culture and growth expectations.   Answer Question

Affiliate Marketing Associate Interview

Affiliate Marketing Associate
Mountain View, CA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 days - interviewed at Coupons.com in February 2013.

Interview Details – Got an email from the recruiter that they had received my resume and they wanted to do phone interviews. Had 3 phone interviews, first with the recruiter, then with the manager, and then third with a team member who I would be working with and reporting to. After phone calls, I scheduled an in person interview where I met with the people I talked on the phone to and a senior manager and another manager. Interviews were great, very friendly people made me feel comfortable.

Interview Question – How would you go about contacting someone if they never answered your emails or returned your phone calls?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Budget was still being approved so hadn't gotten salary offer yet. Solution to bring me on as a contractor to start and then give me the full time offer.

IT Support Interview

IT Support

Interviewed at Coupons.com

Interview Details – Friendly company, well-organized interview process, made me feel right at home. The HR folks had a lot of real-world experience in the tech sector, along with great communication skills, and this positive experience set the tone for the entire interview process.

Had one phone interview with a director, then a site interview with a manager and several engineers. Interviewer skills were consistently typical of most foreign-born tech folks educated in a system that prizes rote learning and the technical version of a "spelling bee" as their criteria for measuring a student's intelligence.

IOW, their interviewing style was more focused on the candidate's ability to regurgitate memorized reference material (some obscure and not likely to be encountered on the job) as opposed to a real-world big picture focus that synthesizes a variety of hard and soft skills. The latter is the style of interview with which I am most accustomed and prefer.

Unfortunately, this style of interviewing is all too common these days and is certainly not limited to this company. All in all, I liked the company culture and the people I met (especially Steve) and would consider working there in the future if the stars align well for both of us.

Interview Question – I was asked one question that focused on a mathematical formula that I haven't used since college. Not sure what the interviewer was hoping to achieve with that. Seems that another question might have been more meaningful.   Answer Question
