I applied in-person and interviewed at Reachlocal.

They have let go or had so many peole resign in the office that I would not be anonymous answering anymore.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Reachlocal in March 2014.
Interview Details – I was asked the most important parts of the sales process. Why I leaving my old job, do I prefer selling new

Interview Question – Most important part of the sales process View Answer
Product Manager Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Reachlocal.
Interview Details – The interview started about 10 minutes late.
The hiring manager didn't introduce himself/herself, nor did (s)he introduce the company and give an introduction to the position.
It went straight to a "Tell me about yourself" type-of interview, and the manager was clearly not routinized on how to perform a proper interview. Arbitrary interviews are rarely impactful...
The lack of introduction to the company lead me to question and "turn" the interview toward the hiring manager, which is unfavorable in an interview, but was clearly needed so I could understand the position, since the posted job description and details were generic and thrown together on a whim.
The hiring manager asked irrelevant questions, and it was hard to get a feeling of where the interview was heading.
Questions such as "What do you think are the most important things a Product Manager does?" and "...but what are the most important characteristics of a Product Manager?" are extremely inappropriate to ask, when there is no context to the question.
There were absolutely no technical questions which lead me to think that the hiring manager had very little, or no in-depth knowledge about the technical side of things other than throwing around words such as "QA", "software development" and "legacy code".
The position went from a Product Manager, to the hiring manager's assistant, to "someone that will take on several projects in the near future".
The inconsistency and lack of enthusiasm shown by the hiring manager was a clear indicator that the company merely needed a pair of hands to complement the hiring manager's work and projects.
Interview Question – Tell me about yourself......... View Answer
IMC (Internet Marketing Consultant) Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Reachlocal in April 2014.
Interview Details – Ridiculous "personality profile" assessments and basic math and mind game tests followed by mandatory prerequisite interview prep that should be two weeks worth of training to learn their technology, the company, and how to present it. No support from the recruiters at all.
Account Executive Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Reachlocal.
Interview Details – Recruiters reach out via LinkedIn
Interview Question – Describe the SERP View Answer
Negotiation Details – Very little opportunity for negotiation.
Internet Marketing Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Reachlocal

IMC (Internet Marketing Consultant) Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Reachlocal.
Interview Details – Phone calls and one personal face to face meeting
Interview Question – Can I be a team player Answer Question
Client Services Consultant Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Reachlocal.
Interview Details – 3 total steps. Phone interview, in person interview and final phone interview. Phone interview is a screening, in person interview is where they really try to discover who you are. Questions are pretty basic but you are expected to complete a questionaire beforehand which has the company automatically predict if you are a good fit for the company or not.
Interview Question – Be prepared to show how much you know about the SEM industry. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – No negotiation
Business Intelligence Interview (Neutral Experience)
Interviewed at Reachlocal
Interview Details – The hiring manager reached out to me. I was asked if I would like to apply, and then given a phone interview a week later. It was mostly behavioral questions that related to my resume. I was then given a timed online test filled with brain teasers. Another phone interview followed this test.
Interview Question – A mutli-step logic problem that involves thinking in a way that resembles the output from queries run using SQL. It contained sub-questions that built off of each other and slowly ramped-up in difficulty. Answer Question
