    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Octagon.

    Interview

    I applied online and within 2 weeks I was invited to phone interview. The interviewer was nice and friendly. Most questions were based on resume, nothing difficult. The interview went smoothly and I even shared the research report I conducted before for the clients they're currently work with. But after one week, I was rejected. They went with candidate with more experience on sport and sponsorship. So do show your passion and understanding about sports industry during interview!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Octagon.

    Interview

    The hiring process consisted of two interviews. I first had a phone interview with one of the Account Executives. It was your average interview. We went through my resume, and then I was asked more job-specific questions, such as "How would you handle a disgruntled guest?" The second interview was with the Account Manager. It was supposed to be a video interview, but due to technical difficulties, we ended up just speaking over the phone. This interview was very similar to first in regards to the questions asked.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Octagon.

    Interview

    Interview included an HR phone screener, several phone interviews and a day full of multiple one-on-one in-person interviews. Earlier in the process, technical skill and candidate’s professional background is a larger concern. By the in-person interview, the company is most concerned with cultural fit with candidates. HR was responsive and moved relatively quickly in my case.

    Interview Questions

    • Primarily questions about professional background, industry knowledge and career aspirations.   Answer Question

    Interview

    Went to their Charlotte, NC offices and met with the manager of the Sprint account. He showed me around the office and briefed me on what a typical workday looks like. Went into an open office and talked for about an hour, just getting to know one another. Gave me more details on what the expectations were for the position. Was very informal, but very informative and helpful.
