    Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Harte Hanks (Los Angeles, CA) in January 2015.

    Interview

    Grueling writing tests all conducted via email overtook any formal interview process. Providing massive amounts of "free" copy with curt, illogical feedback that makes one wonder why big financial institutions are utilizing these so called skilled "marketing professionals." Found the entire process dehumanizing, manipulative, and a massive waste of time. The writing tests are poorly thought out and terribly communicated. Also, very disturbing how very little they know about mobile marketing. Also, begs the question is this a writing test or way to get free labor.

    Tech Support Representative Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Harte Hanks (Austin, TX) in July 2013.

    Interview

    The recruiter first reached me by email through job boarding site (monster.com). I applied online through the link on the email (Just for note, their system kindly remind you to finish application if you leave in middle of applying), I finished my online application involving technical supporting examples, IQ test, typing test, and voice audition. Then, they called me to verify my relevant experience on my resume, and let me know they decided to do in-person interview next day. I got to the place and told the front desk lady that I was for the interview, and she gave me technical questions to solve. It was testing for basic computer and networking knowledge. It had 10 questions about IP address, email client, how-tos, Active Directory, etc. Then a manager came out and interviewed me asking, what do I know about the company. Be sure to research the company beforehand, and prepare about two questions about the company because he will ask you if you have any question. Also, he asked me technical questions about Exchange and Outlook which I didn't really expected. After the interview, the manager guided me to the front door. Manager and front office lady were nice, but atmosphere was not so much of energetic. I was kind of intimidated as I was entering the building because there's only little space in between the building entrance and office that you need ID to get in, and the security is always watching in the front.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harte Hanks (Yardley, PA) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I had interviewed with this company three times previously. I sent my materials to HR for Freelance, but she hadn't forwarded them to the hiring manager (Chief Creative). SNAFU. I didn't get a call/email back. About a month previously, another hiring manager tasked me with a "simple" test. It was complex and it took hours to complete.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harte Hanks (Austin, TX) in April 2011.

    Interview

    General line of questioning on areas pertaining to the role. All interviews went well, then..............silence. Appears like they do not have the cultural capacity to let you know when they decide not to progress further.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Harte Hanks (Yardley, PA) in October 2010.

    Interview

    I was in a conference room and one by one, I sat down with various people (whom I assumed were part of the decision making process) and talked about my resume and portfolio. I didn't feel interrogated, but it was a bit daunting since I've never had anything beyond a 1:1 interview at this point. The whole session took two hours, and thankfully I had gotten adequate rest and ate a good-sized breakfast beforehand. The people I spoke with were friendly and they didn't seem out to get me or trip me up.
