Account Manager Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Rocket Fuel in October 2012.
The interview process took place over a 3 month period. Was introduced by a staffing firm who had worked with the company before.
Interview consisted of 4-5 phone interviews, then a half day interview in office. They have you speak with Directors of departments that you will be interacting with. The in office interview was a mix, mostly of sales and other potential colleagues.
- I think the length of the interview process was the most difficult part. For the particular position that I was interviewing for, a heavy focus was put on my past experience and knowledge in the digital space. Answer Question

Account Manager InterviewAccepted OfferNeutral ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months – interviewed at Rocket Fuel (Redwood City, CA) in January 2012.
Went through several rounds of phone interviews and then several rounds of in-person interviews. Met with 4 different individuals during my in-person. The interview questions were pretty abstract - more about thought process then straight skill knowledge. They called all 4 of my references and asked a lot of probing questions.
I was finally offered the job and accepted. I filled out quite a bit of paper work for their HR manager. Including my initial application (which I did not fill out until after I was hired and signed my offer letter). Within, I clearly and honestly marked that I had previously been convicted of a crime. No problems, I started 3 weeks later and everything was fine and I worked there for more than 2 weeks before they even bothered to look at my paperwork or run a background check. At that point, I was fired. Incredibly bad business practice. I passed up other job offers to accept that position. Why wait until after a new hire has started their job to even bother looking at their paperwork? This could have been easily avoided if their hiring managers properly did their jobs.
