    Content Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Vertive.

    Interview Details

    They hiring process is pretty rigorous. Interviews with every top level employee you'd ever report to, VPs and the CEO. Your final interview - before you even get an offer - will include meeting with the CFO or HR manager to discuss benefits and salary. If you get to that point, chances are you can expect an offer.

    Negotiation Details
    No negotiation. Ask for the higher side of what you want, because they'll lowball you. And if you come back and try to negotiate, they may not accept your offer.

    Product/Biz Dev Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at Vertive in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very long interview process, talked to almost everyone in the reporting chain for the department I would have been working in. Managers I talked to were smart and knowledgeable about their market niche. On the downside the process seemed very disjointed - especially learning at the last stage of interviewing that they didn't know exactly what role they wanted to hire first - or if one person could do both jobs. No response from email with HR about that discussion.

    Interview Questions
    • Going through your entire resume multiple times. While some see is as good practice a little better scheduling could save candidates and their interviewers time by consolidating the interviews.   Answer Question

    Online Marketing Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Vertive in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    The CEO and a manager came to my class and gave a presentation about Vertive and how they use Performance Marketing. I talked to them afterwards and said I was interested in an internship. I was then emailed by HR asking if I wanted to submit an application. I did and then was scheduled for a phone screen. The phone screen went well and then I scheduled an interview at the office which also went well. I got the internship the same day and happily accepted.

    Product Team Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at Vertive in July 2011.

    Interview Details

    This was the most intense interview process I've ever experienced. Not so much because of the interviewing itself, but because of the amount of time it took. I was told to expect to be in the office for about 3 hours and I ended up being there for almost the entire day. I was required to give a presentation in the morning prior to having individual breakout interviews with senior people for almost every department.

    The interview process is taken very seriously here and really smart, talented people are hired as a result. The only real complaint is how inefficient and lengthy the entire process is.

    Interview Questions
    • There weren't really any difficult questions. Most questions are situational, real world, problem solving type questions. If you're good at what you do, you'll adapt to anything that gets thrown at you.

      Pro tip: Be confident in your position and willing to have a conversation about why you gave specific answers. Even better if you can back it up with data. Learn a bit about how the coupons & deals space works and do some quick comparisons to the main competitors.

    Negotiation Details
    This went very quickly for me. I was contact by the recruiter for a phone interview and was scheduled for an in-person interview about 3 days later. I was given an offer the following day and accepted about 2 days after that.

    I applied online - interviewed at Vertive.

    Interview Details

    The initial phone interview and communications (phone and email) with the internal recruiter went well. I then went in for an in-person interview, which was rushed and I got the feeling they didn't have time for me. I sent thank you notes and followed up with them afterwards. I never received a response after the in-person interview.
