Analyst Interview

Analyst
Foothill Ranch, CA

I applied online and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Oakley.

Interview Details – I interviewed with two people back to back. The first person was very thorough in explaining duties, procedures, and team synergy. The second interviewer put up a wall from the get-go and rushed to get out of the interview. I wanted to ask more questions about the company and position, but was cut short. Both interviews combined took 1 hour.

Marketing Representative Interview

Marketing Representative
Dallas, TX

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oakley in March 2013.

Interview Details – The hiring process consisted of a skype interview, a phone interview with regional manager, and a face to face interview with regional manager, national manager, and talent acquisition manager. Very casual interview, t-shirts, jeans, flip flops were the attire. The final interview which was the face to face also included a presentation that the applicants had to prepare. We were all given a pair of sunglasses and were to make a presentation that we would give to any of our accounts.

Interview Question – Explain a time when a boss or fellow employee took advantage of your duties and how did you react to that. They were most worried about the sales reps taking advantage of the marketing reps and wanted to make sure that you could avoid that.   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Human Resources Interview

Human Resources

I applied online - interviewed at Oakley in May 2014.

Interview Details – This was an extensive interview process. Initially, I had about a 30 minute screening interview with the Recruiter. She was great! She told me she would share her feedback with the hiring manager and if they were interested, they would interview me. I got a call a few days later and was set up with a phone interview with the hiring manager. That was about an hour and it was pretty difficult. I was asked a lot of situation type questions and it was hard to hear her at times because it sounded like she was driving and doing things (doors opening & closing, etc). The phone interview was around 5:00pm after work.
After this, I got called in for an in person interview. I was set to meet with 5 people from 8am - 10am. Once I got in, I was initially interviewed by 2 people for 30 minutes. Again, they asked similar questions to the ones I answered over the phone. I was then interviewed by 2 other people for 30 minutes. After that, I was told I was done and rushed out of the building. I was done an hour early and didn't meet with the last person I was supposed to meet with. Seemed a little unprofessional to me. I figured they had decided I wasn't a fit but they should have addressed that I wouldn't be meeting with the last person instead of just rushing me out.
After that, I never got a call or anything from the recruiter.

Interview Question – All of the questions were "Tell me about a time when..." or "What would you do if...."   Answer Question

Manager Interview

Manager

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Oakley in October 2010.

Interview Details – Started with a recruiter calling me to set up an interview with the hiring manager. After that, multiple interviews with at least 2-4 people (panel interviews), stretching over 2 weeks. One panel interview included lunch in the company lunchroom with 6 additional employees.
Offer made the following week via telephone.

Interview Question – Tell us how you would you would react if your business plan was rejected   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – When I questioned the initial salary offer, I was told the process to go back and negotiate for more was cumbersome and lengthy. But that they could just add 10% on to the offer and then add a signing bonus

Organizational Development Coordinator Interview

Organizational Development Coordinator

Interviewed at Oakley

Interview Details – This process was especially intense and grueling. Also it was extremely long! I went through a telephone interview, in person interview, and then came back to do three 1/2 hour interviews with people in the department followed by a 20 minute presentation on a topic in the field. It was not enjoyable and I think it was a lot of resources wasted for the company.

Interview Question – Nothing-- just a tough presentation as they seemed pretty insistent that it matched their culture as well as being informative and showing you know your stuff   Answer Question
