    Sponsorship Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Live Nation Entertainment.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in for an in person interview immediately after talking briefly with a recruiter. The interview was standard fare, and I ended up interviewing with three people total. The only negative I can say, was that after several times trying to contact the hiring manager after the interview, I was ignored.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Live Nation Entertainment in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was very straight-forward. Applicants would send their Resume/Cover Letter and wait for a contact, then set up an interview. The interview would be 1-on-1 with the director of Live Nation New York (quite a disconcerting fact I wasn't prepared for, to interview with somebody so high-up in the company)

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult question was regarding their flagship venues in NYC, things such as capacity, location and type of acts that usually perform on each of them. They also, rightfully, expected you to have knowledge of a myriad of upcoming concerts.   Answer Question

    Human Resources Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Live Nation Entertainment.

    Interview Details

    Quick phone interview w/ Recruiter who then passed my application over to a scheduling coordinator. Phone interview w/ direct manager, then skype interview with divisional head. All very nice.

    Then I had a face-to-face w/ the regional president, VP of finance, and VP of Operations. The final of the three asked me every single illegal interview question I could imagine.... all about my personal life - zero questions that were actually related to the job.

    He must not have liked my answers, as I didn't hear back after that interview. I'm okay with it since I clearly would have had my hands full of EEOC and DOJ lawsuits if I did. The pay discussed was also not competitive.

    Interview Questions
    • What year did you graduate college? (aka How old are you?)
      Do you have kids?
      Are you married?

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chantilly, VA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Live Nation Entertainment in May 2014.

    Interview Details

    Found them online. Applied online. Next day recruiter from CA called and emailed. Because of scheduling I couldn't connect with her until a week later. We connected via phone and she said she had already sent the hiring manager my resume. She said he wanted to speak with me immediately. The next day I spoke with him on the telephone. He was very nice. Easy to talk to. Never asked a technical question though. He wanted to bring me in for a "round of technical interviews". I said OK. He said the HR lady in CA would set it up. She did. Then another HR lady in CA sent me an email with 3 documents to completed "before" the interview. She stressed that. The second HR lady even emailed me the morning of the in person interview to tell me the interview had been pushed back 30 minutes. She followed up her phone call with an email. I responded that I got the message. I arrived. The hiring manager from the telephone greeted me at the door. He told me that there would be 3 men interviewing me. He brought them in one at at a time and came and got them after their time was up. The first guy looked familiar. Like someone I "knew" personally. from a long time ago. He refused to look at me. Just sat there and talked at me as to what they did. I had to interrupt him (he made me feel like I was) 3 times to ask questions. He did answer them though. Never asked me a technical question nor gave a skills assessment type test. Just talked to me about what they did. He left. Next guy was brought in. He was very engaging. Talked to me about what they did. He asked if the first guy gave a skills technical assessment. I said no. Not at all. He asked me more questions like . . . here is what he had to one one time . . . how would you handle it. I responded by giving him examples of what I had done in similar situations. He responded, (quoting here), "Your solution sounds more eloquent than what they did here to be frank." He laughed. Very nice person. Hiring manager came and got him and brought next guy in. It was a young guy who was introduced as the "geek". He sat there and talked for what seemed like forever on what they did technically day-to-day. It was somewhat repetitive of what I had already been told. He asked if either of the other two people gave me a technical skills assessment. I said no. He just had a list of technologies that he wanted to ask me if I had experience. And that is literally what he did. No technical question or anything. So the hiring manager came back, even though this 3rd guy asked him for 5 more minutes. The hiring manager asked me what I thought. I responded. He asked me if I had any concerns about coming to work there. I asked about benefits. He got his secretary in there and let me ask her. She went and dug up the answer and came back. He asked me about where I was in the hiring process. I mentioned a second interview with another local company. He was shocked there was one in that town. He asked who they were. I told him. He asked what they did. I told him. then he asked if was going to take that job. I said I was waiting for the process. He said he wanted to know what I wanted in terms of salary for his job. The said that job had a "specific salary". I told him I only knew how to quote him what I earned as on a 1099. He explained how that didn't figure in benefits etc. I said I know and agreed. He said he would get back to the two HR people in CA (asked me if their names were xyz which was correct). He asked me to give him a couple of days. Said he also wanted to gather feedback from those 3 who interviewed me. That was over a week ago. Never heard a word from the HR ladies or the 4 interviewers. Guess someone didn't like me very much.
