    Field Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Sacramento, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Sacramento, CA
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Qwest.

    Interview Details

    Introduced by a friend leaving the position. Started with a phone interview. Followed by several email communications. Company was in the process of a reverse merger, so my particular situation was drawn out over a 3 month period, ugh. This was a unique case because I was introduced by a friend, and due to the merger they were in a hiring freeze so my application was in suspension. When the ok to hire came, we picked up where we left off and it moved more rapidly.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing too difficult. Behavioral questions, asked for examples of skill sets. One on one scenario and it was informal.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    My situation was over a 90 day period. When we finally met for the in-person final interview, I was asked about salary and I had to remind interviewer of the range specified early on. I hit at the high end and they agreed. Also brought up stock options as this was in the dot com era, got em.

    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Qwest.

    Interview Details

    I knew a manager of one of the stores. He personally passed my name and information on to the Regional Manager. I received an interview the following week and the job offer the next day. I am pretty sure that the process would not have been as quick if I had not known somebody on the inside.

    The best way to get in is to know someone. That way you can be sure your resume is reviewed and possibly accepted, AFterthatyou will need to pass a phone interview, then an HR interview, then meet withthe hiring manager. It takes time but can be worth it.
