Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager
Sydney (Australia)

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Samsung Group in July 2012.

Interview Details – Recruiter first, then HR, then line Manager. Presentation was required. Process was very quick and efficient. Samsung moves quickly through things. Presentation was taken seriously so invest adequate time here. Line Manager is key but HR still influential and are the gate keeper. HR more interested in motivations and examples of results.

Interview Question – How would you launch and position a new Samsung tablet.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiation possible on package.

Interview Question – I was asked to prepare a powerpoint presentation with my proposal of a marketing plan for the company.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – First, a HR person called me with the job offering. After I accepted the conditions, they sent me an e-mail formalizing the offering.
