    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at PCM in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter was extremely nice, warm, and extroverted. However, it was a complete misrepresentation of the actual company and office-work culture. Expectations from recruiter were rarely if ever met, and the potential growth statisitcs were absolutely inflated.

    Business Development Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at PCM.

    Interview Details

    Initial interview was easy and straight forward. They give out the job detail, scope of responsibilities and benefits. Its the subsequent phone interviews thats a bit hard as they pitch with 2 managers from across the states. And you can barely hear them probably because of their telecom facility so you really have to pay close attention.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult question is how you intend to go about a case on hand and the question is rather vogue so you have to try and read between the lines.   Answer Question

    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in El Segundo, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at PCM in May 2012.

    Interview Details

    Its not to bad but you really don't do any marketing. Don't expect to have any real input on marketing either. The VP's only care about collecting and keeping money for the bottom line.
    If you talk to Mr Brothers, he is a very good and down to earth man. One VP in particular is a real piece of work. Horrible

    Interview Questions
    • No real difficult questions. This goes to show that they really just need warm bodies   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at PCM.

    Interview Details

    PCM seemed like one of your typical corporate settings. Upon arrival, you check in with the receptionist and you will be given a sticker badge. The interview process was conducted by the hiring manager. It was informal but was very informative. It provides you a great feel for the company culture and what the job entails.
