Marketing Manager Interview

Marketing Manager

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at WellPoint.

Interview Details – I applied online via their website. A few months passes and I didn't hear anything, so I assumed they weren't interested. Then a recruiter emailed me and said my would-be boss wanted to do a phone interview. I had pretty much forgotten I even applied, so I was thrilled.

First I had a 30 minute phone interview. Basic and typical, but really good. Then they asked me to come in for a full day of interviews -- they just gave me a day the next week and told me I needed to be there from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. I was sort of taken aback, since this is short notice, and I had a full-time job that I couldn't just leave whenever. But, I wanted this job a lot, so I made it work.

I guess I made it to the next round, because then they had be do phone interviews with even MORE people over the phone. It was annoying though because they once again just gave me a date and set up three interviews back to back. Even though they were on the phone, I still had to leave my office for a total of three hours to take them.

Then I was called into a final round of interviews with the same group of people I met the first time. It seemed silly because most of the people just flat out said to me, "Well, I feel like I know everything I need to about you..." and we just tried to make small talk to fill the time.

I had a final phone call with my would-be supervisor after that, and she told me they would decide by the end of the week. Three weeks passed -- and then I got a form email saying I wasn't selected. I felt that with as much time I put into the process, I should have at least gotten a feedback email from the hiring manager saying why I wasn't a fit or how I could have improved.

Interview Question – Several people asked me how I would handle dealing with their archaic technology, and why "someone so fun" would want to work for "a company like this."   Answer Question
