    Field Marketing Manager Interview

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

    I applied 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 applied 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.

    First applied online, then about 10 days later had a short interview followed by a 3-hour test of skill. This included multiple choice questions followed by a somewhat exhausting exercise (but not difficult) using a mock up database. The training period is 10 weeks (rather long).

    I was offered a better job and was a bit put off by the screening process. The interview itself was fine but I thought the screening process was excessive.
