PR Intern Interview (Negative Experience; Difficult Interview)
Interviewed at Roll Global
Interview Details – I first met up with the HR manager. She asked me to go over my resume and then asked some questions. I was then told that I would be meeting up with some other team members. One lady came and the same process happened. Two other PR members were supposed to interview me but was held up at meeting. Two other ladies became substitute but didn't really seem to know what to ask.
Interview Question – Asked pretty basic stuff. For example, what do you usually read? Answer Question
Public Relations Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 12 months - interviewed at Roll Global in March 2011.
Interview Details – I was asked to come in and interview for a marketing/PR advertised position for Paramount Farms, specifically the Wonderful Pistachios team. After making me wait 20 minutes, the HR woman finally showed up (I was on time.) She led me to a boardroom with a huge window facing a brick wall and adjacent rooftop. After a few general questions and glancing at my resume before tossing it aside, she left to go find the marketing manager for that team, the person who would be supervising this new hire.
Another woman walked in and seemed unprepared and like she didn't care at all. No eye contact and no personality. There was no detailed job description printed out and she honestly said to me, "I don't know how I ended up in PR. I'm a nutritionist." She said they had many applicants, but they weren't looking to hire until the next quarter. I had many questions about this position I was extremely interested in and when asked asking about specific duties, she said I would be "more of an assistant. Ya know, answering phones and preparing goodie bags for events." My college and professional experience were never questioned.
She got up to leave and I sat there. Forever. Waiting for the HR woman or anyone to come back. No one did. I walked out after 20 more minutes and found my own way downstairs. What a waste of time and energy. They never contacted me to say anything. I never heard a "yes," "no" "get lost" nothing. I wrote them off and decided I would never want to work there anyway since they obviously have no respect for people's time or talent. They just don't care.

Marketing/Brand Manager Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Roll Global in January 2010.
Interview Details – Not very impressed, felt as if the interview process was very unprofessional and disorgranized. Interviewed for a Marketing position where the job description said one thing and then went in and the interviewing manager said another.
