    Creative Marketing Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Grandstream Networks (Boston, MA) in May 2014.

    Interview

    This was the most time consuming and infuriating interview process that I have ever had the displeasure of going through. My first interview in their Boston office entailed speaking with five different people, and it lasted an entire day. I had been led to believe that I would be meeting one or two people, so I had only taken the morning off from my full time job. I had to make an excuse to call out for the afternoon. After being grilled for an entire day by 5 different managers, it became clear that they had unrealistically high expectations for a non-manager. Then, one of them emailed me that night asking me to create an advertisement for one of their new products. This took several hours, and I did not receive any kind of communication from them for another three weeks after I had sent in the final product.

    When they finally did reach back out, they asked me to come in two more times (took another vacation day from my f/t job), once to interview with a sales manager and another time with the CEO. The CEO somehow expected me to have advanced Flash animation skills, which was not listed in the job description or on my resume. I left feeling even more confused and annoyed than I had been before at his impossibly high expectations. Shockingly, I was still offered the position. But, as it turned out, they neglected to mention that this job was commission based. The base salary was ridiculously low, especially considering the high cost of living in this area. I turned the down without thinking twice about. What a waste of time.

    Long story short, I would recommend avoiding this company at all costs.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Grandstream Networks (City of Industry, CA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Casual environment. Don't expect typical interview questions here. Expect to be spoken to like a casual acquaintance. But don't let their demeanor fool you, the job isn't as great as it sounds. The process was more like a get-to-know-you process and less like a formal interview. In this respect, the interview process is great, the job on the other hand is a whole 'nother story.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    No negotiation. Compensation was cut and dry, unfortunately, You may have better luck than me.
