    Strategic Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Anonymous Employee in Charlotte, NC
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    1st round: College recruiting. 30 min behavioral and 30 min case interview. Case was easy.

    2nd round interviews: Started with a tour. Then had four 30-45 min interviews where they asked a few behavioral questions then discussed the case. These cases were much harder than the initial one. Lunch then final group case where you had 30 min to read and analyze the case yourself. You came together as a group (4 other people) to discuss but not necessarily agree on conclusions. Higher management came in and took note of who talked about what.

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult part were the cases (2nd round). They're not your typical consulting cases, but they still require strategy and a conceptual view of the data. That was definitely the hardest, but the actual calculation/math part was easy.   Answer Question

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied to the position, and was emailed about a phone interview. The interview was 10-15 minutes long. It was the most uncomfortable interview possible, it was awkward and the girl that I spoke with sounded like she didn't know what she was doing.

    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Red Ventures in October 2013.

    Interview Details

    First interview was good, 30 minutes or so just going over my resume with the interviewer. Second interview with a younger man was horrible. Being interviewed for a digital marketing position, I'd assume that the interviewer would be familiar with the field. For the record, I've worked in the digital marketing field for many, many years (likely more than most at Red Ventures considering this is a field that is slightly more new). The interviewer was unfamiliar with terms that I used, and I'm fairly certain this played against me in the interview. Point being, interview was crummy. I've interviewed with difficult firms, and even if not offered the position, didn't have a negative experience. The interview questions were ridiculous and pointless. Actually have a friend who used to work there, and after my interview process, he told me about his experience at the company. Shortly put, I'll say I'm glad I was not offered the position.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Mill, SC
    Anonymous Employee in Fort Mill, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Red Ventures in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    I had a phone interview which was brief, the representative didn't seem overly focused which was frusterating. I've heard of good experiences, it just seems to depend on who you are in contact with. Everyone was nice, but it seemed to be only surface deep.The person who conducted the interview was different than the person it was scheduled with, which was never really explained.

    IT Infrastructure Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Fort Mill, SC
    Anonymous Employee in Fort Mill, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Red Ventures.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and received a call within 2 days. The recruiter was very nice and it was a simple screening process, mostly about what I was looking for. I was passed on to the IT manager for a phone interview the following day.

    The IT manager called late and basically went through my resume. Very nice guy. Described the position thoroughly. Said the next interview was going to be a little more technical with one of their staff. Scheduled it 2 days later.

    The administrator interview was similar to the IT managers interview. Very nice guy again, covered the job description thoroughly and my resume.

    I received a call that they wanted to have me in for an onsite interview next. They flew me out and put me in a very nice hotel with a rental car.

    Came in the next day around 10AM for the interview. The recruiter showed me the 2 buildings of theirs and spoke about the next building they are putting up. Very nice campus.

    Started off in a room with the IT manager. Very similar to the phone call with him, nice guy, showed me around, got a look at the data rooms and networking equipment, etc.

    After that, the IT administrator came in and interviewed me. It wasn't very technical but did cover my resume in a bit more detail than before. He didn't ask any pointed technical questions, but did cover my resume and tried to get a feel for whether I knew what I was talking about or not.

    Then, the Network Engineer came in with the technical interview. Asked a plethora of Cisco CCNP level questions.

    Had lunch after, which they paid for. During lunch, they peppered me with questions about my resume. They were looking for more detail on each bullet point.

    After lunch, I had 2 more interviews with a Vice President and his boss. Both very friendly guys. These were clearly cultural interviews, and the best fit for their culture is an outgoing, ambitious and motivated person. I thought they were pretty easy, personally, but I guess if you aren't that type of person it might be more difficult.

    I received the job offer the following day.

    Reasons for Declining

    Long drive from where I was. Had another offer that was very comparable (less perks, more pay), but was 30 minutes closer. Was very difficult to turn it down, they have amazing perks, culture, and business model. I would reccommend this position if you live in South Charlotte or nearby in SC. Cool, cool place and good people.
