Community Manager Interview

Community Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Knowland Group.

Interview Details – Management was very thoughtful, transparent and thorough in the interview process, which I appreciated; the role I was applying for was brand new so obviously having the wrinkles ironed out was critical. I had four interviews over the course of three months -- all went great -- and had follow up conversations with the recruiter which were all great -- then I heard NOTHING. No calls to my references. No courtesy note to say they went with other candidate. No response to my follow up emails. Ultimately a super disappointing and unprofessional ending that was just in bad taste. Speaks volumes of a company, if you ask me.

Interview Question – No difficult questions, per se, but I was given two test assignments with little direction or insight into their platforms.   Answer Question

Sales Interview

Sales
Washington, DC

I applied online and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Knowland Group in November 2013.

Interview Details – Very thorough screening and interview process. The company has several interview steps including phone screen, web demo, sales coaching sessions.

Interview Question – The company asks you to conduct a web based sales demo. After I completed the demo I was invited to meet the sales director. He gave me a coaching session on how I conducted the demo. He really knew what he was looking for. He gave me some solid suggestions and asked me to redo the demo for him while at the office. The company is very selective, you quickly find out that the company will go through dozens of candidates before extending an offer.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I like the offer process. The company made me a very solid offer and also outlined what to expect during my first year.

Implementation Specialist Interview

Implementation Specialist
Washington, DC

I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Knowland Group in March 2012.

Interview Details – Underwent 3 separate phone interviews, the final one being with the CEO. The first two interviews were with HR, and covered your basic personality, and past experience questions. The last interview consisted of having to call Mike McKean on the weekend, in which he peppered me with questions about my technical prowess, industry knowledge and was essentially gauging my comfort with being on such a high pressure call, with little to no possible preparation. The call lasted about 10 - 15 minutes and I was offered the job.

The entire process lasted approximately 2 weeks.

Interview Question – I was asked about my current knowledge of the specific details hoteliers in a Sales & Catering role need, and care about, when prospecting, selling to, and providing service for a group.   View Answer
