After that it was simply a matter of going through the standard rigmarole of calls and interviews with management and ensuring that the process was followed. From there, I was hired on.

Senior Marketing Manager Role Interview

Senior Marketing Manager Role

I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at Equinix.

Interview Details – Incredibly unprofessional interview process. I had my interview rescheduled 5 times. I interviewed with the hiring manager and 3 others. They emphasized how hard they work and wanted to be sure I could handle a high stress environment. I followed up with the hiring manager and HR for updates and/or feedback and never heard back. Since then, I have had several more recruiters contact me for different roles at the same company. If the interview process is indicative of the company's culture and professionalism, I would not want to work there.

Interview Question – Interviews were fairly straightforward, no difficult or unexpected questions.   Answer Question
