    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Market America.

    Interview Details

    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 Details
    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 Details

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

    Interview Details

    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.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Market America in October 2011.

    Interview Details

    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?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    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.

    Back End Programmer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Greensboro, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through other source – interviewed at Market America in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    Most unusual interview, I've ever had. The interview was interrupted many times while the interviewing manager handled phone calls and employees who just walked in the open door. I was asked very few questions, and most of them about personal interests and hobbies. Hardly any questions about work experience or eduction. I was surprised when I got the job offered to me, as the manager had hardly seemed to care. Found out later the manager was far more astute that what they appeared.
