    Marketing Associate Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at TripAdvisor in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I first spoke to a recruiter at a university career fair. He was recruiting only for technical positions, but he offered to take my resume anyway and pass it on. I was contacted a few weeks later by HR to set up a phone interview. The phone interview consisted of a few basic background questions about my experience and relevant skills. I then received an analytical skills test via email, dealing with website data points such as clicks and impressions for various accounts. It was somewhat complex, but I completed it within a week. I was then contacted again and invited to a 2.5 hours panel interview. I met with 4 mid to senior level employees, each in a different marketing areas (e.g. SEO, site content, product management, partnerships). Each had previously worked with new hires in the position I was interviewing for, so they were able to answer any questions I had. Finally, I was invited one final time, and met with one senior employee. This was a short interview, about 30 minutes, during which I asked the majority of the questions. I was contacted about a week later with an offer, and given 5 days to make a decision. During that time, I spoke with two HR people about the specifics of the offer before I accepted.

    Overall, it was a pleasant experience. Everyone who I met/spoke with was extremely nice and seemed to genuinely like working at TripAdvisor. I had no difficulty getting prompt responses via phone or email. Although the process in total was long (3+ months), there was little lag time between each individual portion of the interview process.

    The only thing missing was maybe a quick tour of the office, which may be a selling point for potential hires. I did not see the whole complex, which I have heard is quite nice and has many unique amenities.

    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at TripAdvisor in February 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process is fairly standard. After the initial phone screening, you are required to do a written exercise which tests your analytical skills. If you pass that, you will be required to meet with several directors and analysts for a 1:1 interview.

    The questions range from analytical questions that pertain to real business problems, to questions about the business itself. Do your research... go online and check out the website. The worst thing you could probably say is, I haven't really looked at the website.

    Other than that, it's a fairly straightforward interview. They don't try to trick you... they genuinely want you to do well. So relax and be professional, but definitely let your personality come through!
