Marketing Coordinator Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at Taubman Centers in April 2012.
Interview Details – The interviewer was very professional. She corresponded with me via email several times before the interview. She had received over 400 resumes for the position. I probably got an interview because my provious boss knew her personally and gave her a call after I applied online. Didnt get an offer presumably because they were looking for someone without the desire for upward mobility as it was basically a dead-end job. When asked where I would like to be in 5 years, I think they wanted me to say "right here still doing this job". That way she wouldn't have to weed through another 400 resumes to find a replacement for me in a few years.
Interview Question – Where do you see yourself in five years? View Answer
Marketing Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 6 months - interviewed at Taubman Centers.
Interview Details – I had two seperate interview dates with five total interviews. I met with the director twice, and then the general manager and my two future coworkers. The interview with the director and my teammates was very laid back and easy. The interview process took a lot longer than expected due to extenuating circumstances within the department.
Negotiation Details – starting salary was not negotiated.
