    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Market America (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    I interviewed back they were just starting their big hiring phase. Back then, they had a couple great people in management and were focused on getting in people they could shape. Now, they try to give hard interviews because they think there's a lot of worthless developers they are stuck with, completely unrealizing that all of their problems with some developers is their own fault caused by extremely low morale and extreme limitation of everyone's potential, in some cases awesome potential and ability... Do not take a job here. They are completely underserving of awesome talent they seek. They are underserving of even mediocre talent. Take the developer's reviews to heart. They are not lying.

    Interview

    When I interviewed with Market America, I was placed into a meeting room with the architecture team and the potential manager that I would be working for. I was asked a series of logical/IT questions; and a series of questions about my previous work experience and employers. After leaving the interview, I was unsure of where i stood with the position. But later (after they had interviewed other candidates) I received an offer.

    Interview

    HR asked my project management experience at the beginning before I was able to introduce myself. She told me she will have manager to decide if to contect me further. However, there is no feedback at all.......... I think feedback is just a simple mail you can sent out to show respect...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Market America.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR, phone screen with manager, in person with manager, job offer by phone from HR. The people in the office that I met during/after the interview didn't say anything negative about the company, but they gave hints about the difficult work environment. Everyone looked depressed, worn down, and not at all happy to be there. I quickly found out why.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't really ask many questions, just told me about the job and that it would be a "challenging" environment with a "high noise level." They weren't joking.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They gave me the $$ I requested, but beware, when you start they try to give you just ONE week of PTO, including sick, vacation, and personal days. That's five days for sick, vacation, AND personal days for an entire year.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Market America.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty easy. There was only one interview and it was in person with the eventual intern manager/supervisor, who was a pretty cool guy. The interview itself was very informal. They asked the normal questions and went over my resume just asking me to expound on each item. They were especially interested in writing skills pertaining to social media.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Market America (Greensboro, NC) in October 2011.

    Interview

    LuckiIy, had a friend who worked at my company, and I sent her my resume. She sent it to my now-boss and the HR manager. Within a week, I had a very general phone interview discussing my skill set, that went well. They called me in for a 1:1 interview to assess my personality and gave me a marketing project. Our department always sends a project home with interview candidates to test their skill, innovation, how much research they've done on Market America, and to see in real time what kind of work ethic you have. The more urgently you send in your project, the better. I submitted that to my interviewer, and they called me back for a second interview with the Director. The HR manager called the next day to negotiate salary.

    Interview Questions

    • With exceptions to the stability and growth opportunities, why do you want a job at Market America?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    We agreed on a salary, and they sent the offer letter. A second HR representative sent me my paperwork, background check information, and drug test instructions. I submitted those, and started work the following Monday. My advice would be to aim high- Market America does not give raises during the year until your annual review, and this only amounts to 3%. Force them to accept your request or make a competitive counter-offer. You will not get another chance.
