Brand Marketing Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Treyarch in April 2011.
Interview Details – About a week after submitting online via website, got a call from local recruiter to set up phone interview. Details regarding interview were emailed and I was asked to call HR rep at set time/day. Overall, interview went well. Interviewer was polite, engaged, professional and we had good rapport. However, it's now been nearly a month and I've yet to receive any feedback whatsoever. I did send a written thank-you note and followed up with a direct email two weeks later but still nothing. Disappointing...
Interview was positive, follow-up thus far is negative.
Interview Question – What is the difference between tactical and strategic planning and how have you used both? Answer Question
Associate Brand Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took a day - interviewed at Treyarch in December 2009.
Interview Details – Interview process was pleasant - met with great people. Conversation style mixed with case questions directed at how you would approach certain problems with regards to launching a game title, industry trends, etc.
- Talk about your background. Why Activision, etc.? View Answer
- Case questions on how you would manage a P&L, how you would expand the market for your game, etc. View Answer
Negotiation Details – I was not able to negotiate much. They usually hire a few people at a time for the same role and make the same offer to everyone. They do not consider your individual work experience much relative to others in terms of compensation.
