    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Karmaloop.

    Interview Details

    Was called in for an interview by HR about a week after applying. Came in to two girls behind the desk with their beats by dre headphones on, which is fine. That's the vibe they want. Was taken into an interview room with two girls who were both nice enough. However, they were both clearly doing work while simultaneously interviewing me, and one seemed like she was going to pass out from exhaustion. They told me I would hear from them by the end of the week. The next day I wrote them both a thank you email, but never received a reply. Again, that's fine, sure they're busy. However, 4 weeks later I have never heard anything else from the company. It would have been both professional and courteous to acknowledge me either way, and simply say thanks but no thanks. The whole experience was a little unimpressive, and I had to take a day off of work for it.

    Received a call after applying through my school. The phone interview was pretty easy. I spoke to the Marketing Mgr about my passion for fashion, past experiences, and how I keep up with fashion. About a week later I was asked to come to the Boston headquarters for an in person behavioral interview and I was asked about past experiences, what i would do to make the company better.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Karmaloop.

    Interview Details

    There's no interview process for temps. You find a listing on twitter, send your resume, and then they ask you to come in for your first day. Easy but not good if you aren't the right person. They will hire anyone

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Karmaloop in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Office Culture seems great, everyone smiled or says hello when walking by, there's a Casual dress code, & everyone seemed to be hard at work.

    I met with the head of the department for 35 minutes, which went smoothly. The interviewer was thorough with their questioning and super helpful in answering my iinqueries. I was a bit surprised I was not offered the position but I did lack some experience, in the apparel industry, though my skill set aligned great with the position and I went to school for this. However, I do realize the current job market is tough, tougher for those seeking to work in fashion in a city that has minimal companies in this industry.

      How do your past skills translate to the current open position?

    Writing Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a dayinterviewed at Karmaloop in August 2012.

    Interview Details

    My resume was passed on through a friend and I was brought in for an interview with an HR rep. I was given very little information about the job description as it seemed I was interviewing for a position that had not even been established or even really thought about yet. The interview consisted mostly of going over my resume and experience, and getting information about the company and culture of the workplace.
    I was given a cursory tour of the workplace and picked up a bit on an unprofessional vibe. The space was a bit messy and unkempt (some unused broken furniture) once you left the main floor.

    Interview Questions
    • No particularly difficult questions. Most were standard "get to know you" interview fare.   Answer Question
