    Mobile/E-mail Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Ticketmaster.

    Interview Details

    4 interviews with departmental VP, 2 senior managers (1 via phone) and manager. Each took about an hour although VP was 45 minutes late and cost me a half day of work. One of the senior managers had such a large ego and had that "dog eat dog" vibe, she winced when I asked her questions about herself demanding I should have done research and should know who I'm talking to. Brutal. Super unfriendly and on a personal level, found it appalling she wouldn't be supportive of women in leadership roles as I had done research about her working with women in business organizations . I felt like I was wasting their time, but really, they wasted mine.

    Senior Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hollywood, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Hollywood, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Ticketmaster.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed with multiple managers not knowing which one would eventually be my boss. Started with a phone interview by a recruiter, then a second followup recruiter interview to ask deeper questions. Total time was about 30 minutes each. Third meeting was in person, in a conference room where several managers came in and out. Lasted about an hour. Fourth meeting with was VP level management in person. Lasted about 45 minutes. Interviews were very casual, non-threatening, and evenly balanced between interviewer and interviewee.

    First impression of the office was: Casual environment, jeans, button down shirts and tennis shoes. Management dressed the same, maybe slightly nicer. This was encouraging. Everyone seemed very relaxed and the office had a medium level of noise. Basically, not as quiet as a library and not as loud as a broker bull pen.

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Hollywood, CA
    Anonymous Employee in Hollywood, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Ticketmaster in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    First I was contacted by a recruiter, who put me in touch with 2 marketing specialists who asked in depth questions. They were both extremely nice. From there I spoke with the director of marketing, who rescheduled twice, and asked me the dumbest questions as if she couldn't care less and couldn't be bothered.

    I had thought that I wanted to work for TicketMaster / LiveNation, but after reading the company reviews on Glassdoor then speaking with this miserable lady who encompassed all of the negative reviews in a 25 minute phone call, I lost all interest in the position and it showed in my responses.

    Interview Questions
    • I was asked why I wanted to work for Ticketmaster/Livenation, which is expected. The two marketing specialists loved the response, the director of marketing didn't comment and moved past it.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Ticketmaster in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted shortly after submitting an application. Interviewed with 2 recruiters by phone and then 3 more in person interviews at the Hollywood office. Everyone at the office had business casual attire on, but I wore a suit and tie. I was complimented on the suit and tie, but was told of their relaxed dress code.
    I was asked a lot of industry specific questions and some general questions on product management and "my style for developing specs."
    Was contacted by the recruiters again for salary and benefits negotiation. No drug test, but they do require a basic background check.
