    Vender Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc (Boston, MA) in April 2010.

    Interview

    The interview came from a recruitment firm. Meeting the IT Manager and one of the key workers, they seemed friendly yet they were honest about the culture there. There is definitely a struggle within ranks. It's that visable. The problem was what they were looking for ultimately different than interpreted.

    Marketing Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Iron Mountain Inc (Boston, MA) in June 2010.

    Interview

    Nascent marketing organization. Interview process took a very long time and was far too exhaustive for a mid-level marketing position I was invited to apply for but never really had a chance of getting. 3 telephone interviews, 9 1:1 interviews, 2 strategy/planning presentations, a personality test & very hard-to-get references (had to track 1 person down from 12 years ago) over ~9 weeks. There were several strange delays in the process -- the longest was between my last interview and the decision. As it turns out, I was just fodder until they lined up another "friend". Humiliating. If you have significant history with the hiring manager, go for it. Otherwise, be very careful with your dignity, your time investment and the favors you request from others. One other thing ... some of the junior people seemed to be overqualified and pigeon-holed while external people are being hired above them. That may not bode well for internal advancement potential or the working environment.

You must be prepared to wait for at least 2 weeks before they make a decision on the right candidate
