I applied through a recruiter and interviewed at J&L Marketing.
Interview Details – I met a recruiter at my university's career fair and she called me the next day. She was extremely prompt and professional. The interview was via Skype and with two J&L employees. I thought having two separate interviewers was a great way for an employer to gain multiple perspectives of a potential employee and it kept me on my toes and making an impression.

The interview process was quick, but had more steps than I have had in other interviews. I had to submit my resume, answer questions via email, do a phone screen, and then an in person interview.
I did all that within 2 and a half weeks.

Interview Details –
I first heard about the position through my university's career center. I applied through email and was contacted a few weeks later by email from a national recruiter. She said she was impressed by my experience. First she sent some information about the position and said to contact her if it still seemed like something I wanted to do. It did, so once I got back to her we scheduled a phone conversation in which she basically answered all of my questions about the position and really went into detail about what I would have to do. There weren't really any surprises except for the fact that they fly you to Louisville for training if you get the job, which I thought was cool.
So then I had to schedule a final phone interview in which I had to call an 800 number at the set time. She told me the interview would be 2 parts and that she would conduct one part and her co worker would do the other part. When I called, however, her co worker told me that the recruiter I had already been communicating with was held up at lunch and that she would do the entire interview.
I thought it would be fine but then the interview was EXTREMELY dry. It sounded like she was reading from a paper the whole time and not even listening to my answers because she just went right to the next question afterwards and didn't follow up on any of the things I said. I felt like I was filling out a form instead of doing an interview, which was very strange because all of the interactions I had had with the company up until that point were very personable and friendly. The questions were not that difficult but they weren't typical interview questions so it took some time to think. I felt like a lot of the questions forced you to admit your faults which is always uncomfortable in an interview.
At the end, she told me they were really busy with recruiting and that I probably wouldn't hear back from them until about a week or two later. However, about 2 days later I got an email saying I didn't get the offer. I felt like it was unfair because I didn't get the interview with the same person I had been in contact with the whole time. Like I said, it was an uncomfortable interview and the lady didn't comment or follow up on anything I said.
The reason I think I didn't get the job is because I had very honest answers. I didn't say anything stupid like "I hate people" (I don't btw haha)but I said stuff like I won't lie to make a sale and I think one of my best qualities is being able to get my point across successfully while still being myself. Also, I thought I possibly didn't get it because I didn't have a lot of questions but I asked all of my questions to the original recruiter on the first phone conversation, and she didn't give me any more info about the company to spark new questions. (Side note: she asks if you have questions in the beginning of the interview.)
The whole thing really threw me off because when I was talking to the original recruiter she made it seem like the final phone interview was just a formality and then I would get the job. Then the second interviewer said I wouldn't even hear back for a week, so it made me feel bad that they decided so fast they didn't want me.
Oh well, I guess.
