Marketing Administrator Interview

Marketing Administrator

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Simon Property Group.

Interview Details – Was contacted for my availability and had an interview set up that week. I met with one person (Marketing Director), who was very pleasant and passionate about her job. All of the questions were pretty run of the mill (What do you know about Simon?, why do you think you would be a good fit for this position?). Found out a lot of information about the job through the interview that made it seem more administrative than marketing-based.

Interview Question – No curve-ball questions in my interview!   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Seemed more administrative than marketing-based, would have to work guest relations booth in the mall if it was under-staffed, didn't seem like it fit with my career goals.

Senior Staff Accountant Interview

Senior Staff Accountant
Indianapolis, IN

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Simon Property Group.

Interview Details – I was initially contacted for a phone interview and was told the information would be passed along to the hiring manager. I was then contacted to come in for a face to face interview and given the itenerary. It was going to be 3 hours (ended up more like 2.5) where I met once with one pair of managers, and for the next hour I met with another set. Before and after these sessions, I met with HR for any questions that I had.

Interview Question – "Can you tell us about your resume"-- This is difficult because it is hard to spit out the same thing over and over and over again, especially when I'm saying nothing much different than what is written.   Answer Question

A couple days later I had a phone interview with HR lasting approximately 30 minutes. About a week later I was asked to come in for an in-person interview with 2 managers in this position's department. Each interview lasted about 30 minutes.
