    Assistant Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Vancouver, WA
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Northwest Natural Products (Vancouver, WA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    My interview process felt a little strange and rushed. A headhunter submitted my resume on my behalf, and I was called that day to schedule an interview for the very next day. I was interviewing for a lower level marketing position. After 10 minutes with the HR representative, I was put in a tiny room to fill out an application. The CEO of the company walked in, was very nice but only asked me 4 questions, then walked me over to the President's office in another building. She asked me much more specific questions, and we had a good connection. I left feeling good, and I was pretty sure I'd get a second interview. To my surprise, they called an hour later to offer me the job. They wanted me to start two weeks from that day, and were not very understanding that I wouldn't be able to put in my 2 weeks notice at my current position until the next day(!). I was pleased at the offer, but a little concerned that I hadn't gotten to meet anyone on the marketing team.

    Reasons for Declining

    I did some research on their company, and found on LinkedIn that only a handful of their marketing team had been there longer than a year. Then, I looked up their Facebook page, only to find that there was a fairly prominent Facebook page just devoted to disgruntled employees of NWNP. I called the HR representative to get clarification on their benefits (their offer letter was very vague), and also asked questions about expectations of employees and working hours. I was told that right now they are growing and that it was expected that their marketing team would be working late fairly often, and would often work weekends. That was just one too many red flags for me. I declined their offer.

    Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Portland, OR
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Northwest Natural Products (Portland, OR) in March 2011.

    Interview

    First interview was with a hiring manager and was pretty straight forward and standard. I was invited back for a second round of interviews with a person from marketing and another HR manager. On the day of the second round neither interviewer asked me more than two questions. It was odd.
