Marketing Analyst Interview

Marketing Analyst
Houston, TX

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in January 2014.

Interview Details – Was called in for pre-employment screening exams. When I arrived there were several other people taking screening exams in the exam room. After the exam was over, I was asked to stay to meet with a recruiter. The recruiter promptly informed me that the position I had originally applied for (Software Education Course Designer) had already been filled but I was recommended to the Marketing Analyst position on the spot. I didn't expect this but it was definitely something I was interested in. From there I was asked to complete a personality assessment to see if "my opinions were in line with that of the company", and a long form employment. After that was done I was asked to stay and speak with a supervisor. The supervisor was very friendly and informative. After the interview I was given a short tour of the facilities and was given an opportunity to sit in with a current employee for about ten minutes. All in all the interview process took about three and a half hours.

I had read previous posts about the organization and went in expecting to take the exam and hear back from them at a later date but was surprised to have gone through such a process almost immediately. I needed to schedule a phone interview as "a lot of the position requires phone calls" so they'd like to verify how you do which I thought was a bit strange. The salary isn't great, but there are opportunities for commission and advancement.

I applied through college or university and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in December 2012.

Interview Details – It began by taking tests in the Reynolds and Reynolds office followed by 3 phone interviews. When at the final in person interview I was keep very secluded as if to keep something hidden from me. They offered me the job but didn't show me to the office or let me meet anyone. Kinda sketchy.

Interview Question – What are your 5 goals you have for your future career.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The pay was too low and the way the interview process was held was just a little sketchy.

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in May 2012.

Interview Details – The interview process took approximately two months and included Skype interviews as well as personal interviews. Overall it was your basic questions, why are you interested in this position, how would you describe yourself etc. I would recommend you know the company well and the position you are applying for and be honest about who you are. The position I applied for initially was not the one I was offered but I do feel like they placed me in the section of the company that best suited my personality. You interview many times and they are in depth interviews but well worth it.

Interview Question – You will be asked how much the position you are applying for will make as far as salary and very detailed questions. If you prepare you will be able to answer them.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – The move to Houston was something that I was unsure about as well as all the negative reviews about working entry-level for Reynolds and Reynolds were discouraging. After talking to my family and friends they all suggested I look into other options.

The process took 5 days - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in February 2012.

Interview Details – I received a phone from a recruiter. I was then sent an invitation to complete an application and an personality assessment prior to my appointment. I was then scheduled five days later to take an aptitude test inside of their office. When I arrived, the receptionist told me that I could potentially meet face to face after testing if the recruiter had time. It consisted of math problems, word choice and vocabulary. It was fairly difficult considering I haven't done algebraic expressions since college. The office was pretty nice. I saw plenty of people in the testing room. No one advanced to a face to face interview. The receptionist looked over my paperwork and told me they would be in touch. A few weeks later, I was notified that they wanted to pursue other candidates. I think it was a total waste of time. This is my second try with this company and I never got any real feedback. The position I was interested in had little to do with math itself so I think the aptitude test is pointless.

Interview Question – Tell me about yourself.   Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in October 2011.

Interview Details – The process is very long. They try to weed out people by their never ending tests. I personally don't think that those tests can determine your personality or your opinions. People will feel obligated to put certain responses to ensure the job. However, the people were nice and comforting. Just know, if you're applying to this job, you will be spending hours in front of a computer that will try to determine if your personality and opinions are suited for the company.

The process took 5 months - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in June 2011.

Interview Details – I applied for a job at Reynolds in Reynolds in about December of 2010. About a month later I was sent an email asking to contact a representative from Reynolds and Reynolds. They asked me some basic questions (Name, Do you use tobacco?, etc). I also took a personality test, IQ/Intelligence test online. I didn't hear from them until June where they sent me another email asking me to call a Reynolds and Reynolds representative where they asked me the same questions. I then schedule a 1:1 interview with a general hiring manager (I believe). After that, I was asked to come in and retake the IQ/Intelligence test because "they require everyone to take it at their company" (I guess so no one has an unfair advantage...if that was the case they should have just made me take it there in the first place.) After that I had a second 1:1 interview, which I thought went very well. A couple of days after this interview, I needed to do a phone interview with another manager (I guess to see how my phone skills were). He asked me some more questions, and the whole time I was talking to him I felt like he already made a decision not to hire me because he sounded so aloof on the interview. About a week later, they sent me a very impersonal standardized email that basically said they would not be extending an offer to me. After all that I would have appreciated personal letter telling me why I didn't get the job at the very least.

The process took 3 days - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in April 2011.

Interview Details – I called in after receiving an email requesting I contact the recruiting department. I did so, and they conducted a short phone interview to make sure I met all the baseline criteria. I appreciated this as it would have potentially saved me a wasted day dressing up and driving in for an interview if I wasn't a potential match. I then scheduled my first interview - this consisted of an IQ test, a personality test, and a skills test. They did provide me with sample practice material via email, so I was able to brush up on some math skills I hadn't used in a long while. My interview process was conducted on two different days over the period of a week and I interviewed with four different people. Although the interview process is VERY thorough the amount of time my interview took and the number of people I interviewed with was more than likely higher than usual as I didn't have time to stay for the subsequent interviews and had to reschedule; I also was looking into a few different positions, therefore interviewed with a couple different department heads.

Lastly I was asked to schedule a drug test, and shortly after received an offer. In the interview I was asked what I needed to make as far as salary, and how I arrived at that figure, where I saw myself in 5 years, my personal strengths and weaknesses, etc. I went in and was very upfront and honest about what I needed in an employer and they were equally honest with me.

The fact that they are particularly choosy about who they hire has turned out to be a plus, as everyone there is of above average intelligence. The office is extremely clean, no dirty microwave, science projects in the refrigerator, etc. In my department I have witnessed first hand rapid promotion from within to people who deserve it.

Interview Question – There wasn't a particular questions that caught me off guard, but the length of time required for all the testing plus the multiple interviews was much longer than I anticipated, therefore I had to break it into two days   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There wasn't much to negotiate, but then again I came in at an entry level to be trained from the ground up.

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in April 2011.

Interview Details – The first interview was with an HR representative and it lasted from 1-1.5 hours. She asked some questions that I wasn't particularly ready for such as what my personal goals are within the next 5 years, how I came up with my desired salary, and why I want to live in Houston. The next two interviews were with a Marketing Supervisor and Marketing Director. Both of them basically just went down my resume and asked me about my college and extracaricular activities. The questions from these interviews were almost exactly the same (a lot of overlap) and they were very straight forward and easy. I didn't get the job offer though and am not sure why because all I got was an automated email basically saying "thanks for your time, but we will not be extending an offer."

I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Reynolds and Reynolds in June 2010.

Interview Details – I arrived at the building and there were about 7 other people waiting also. We all went into a testing room to take a series of seemingly irrelevant tests about such things as spatial relationships. Then I believe I was one of few to get asked back to interview in one of their interview rooms. The interview actually went very well and she said she liked me alot but I got an email almost 2 weeks later telling me that they would not extend an offer to me.
