Marketing Assistant Interview

Marketing Assistant
Bronx, NY

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at The New York Botanical Garden in August 2013.

Interview Details – There was a phone interview, they requested a writing sample, an interview with HR, a skills test, an interview with someone in the marketing department, a writing assignment, an interview with the head of the marketing department. This took roughly two months but resulted in no job offer. Seemed like a pretty elaborate process for a low paying entry level position.

Interview Question – Was surprised by a request for a 3rd writing assignment despite submitting a writing sample and completing writing assignment during the interview process.   Answer Question
