Marketing Intern Interview

Marketing Intern
Eagan, MN

I applied online and interviewed at FindLaw.

Interview Details – I applied through the Thomson Reuters corporate website directly. It took a few months until I got a phone call to set up a phone interview. Then a couple days later, I got called back to have an in office interview.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. Phone interview was basic interview questions. In person interviews were actually less formal and it was more of a conversation. However, I think my case is different than most.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I wanted time to think about the offer so I was first emailed all the necessary documents i would have to look at and then I decided with what they offered.

Very Difficult Interview

Senior SEO Consultant Interview

Senior SEO Consultant
Mendota Heights, Dakota, MN

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at FindLaw in June 2009.

Interview Details – Found position on online job site. Was called for in person interview. Interviewed by two individuals at the same time. Both took turns firing off behavioral questions, then each spent a minute or two writing down my response and the other would ask the next question after they had written down everything. It was a very difficult interview because it did not allow me an opportunity to describe how I could help them.

Sales Interview

Sales

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at FindLaw in December 2009.

Interview Details – They're looking for winners. People who are disciplined to work on their own and drive new business in. I showed to be very competitive on the personality profile and he said that I scored very well.

Started with a phone interview - nothing tricky here, they're just weeding out obvious bad fits. If it goes well they move you on to a face to face. During the face to face, be prepared with stories of good wins and loses from past experience. The presentation was easy and although I was told and expecting to handle objections after my close - the manager just told me great job. It was casual, non intimidating and conversational.

Interview Question – Nothing took me by suprise here, very straight forward.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Nothing to negotiate - it's set.
