    ECommerce Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Loveland, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Loveland, CO
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at F+W Publications in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I was hired as an intern, so there were two phases of hiring. I was asked basic behavioral questions such as "what are greatest strengths and weaknesses?" Be prepared to back up all of your answers with evidence. I had several rounds of interviews - all the way up to the CDO. Most interviews were more of a conversation than a "test". It was a good experience! I would go in relaxed and confident.

    Managing Editor Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at F+W Publications in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online. About a week later, I received an email from a HR partner asking to set up an initial screening interview. The call lasted about 45 minutes and the HR woman was very nice. She told me that a particular individual would be handling the hiring for the position and said that I would hear back from that individual by the middle of the next week. That individual never contacted me, however, the HR woman did that Friday and scheduled another interview.

    Second interview was much shorter, but I thought it went well. Less than 30 minutes after we hung up, I got an email saying that the position had been filled.

    Graphic Designer/Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Blue Ash, OH
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Blue Ash, OH
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at F+W Publications in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process overall was pretty smooth. The interviewers asked great questions and were able to accurately provide information about the position. The only real complaint I have is that the actual interview lasted for nearly 2.5 hours or more! I met with 4 people total, but all individually and I had to give a run through of my portfolio 4 separate times. I feel like this is something that could be easily avoided by the interviewers pairing up or interviewing the candidate all at the same time.

    Interview Questions
    • For me, the most difficult question to answer was "Where do you see your career in the next 5/10 years?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The negotiation phase was a bit disappointing. I wasn't offered near the amount of salary I felt I was qualified for. It was, however, a quick process overall...and to the point.
