    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at WyzAnt (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    I'm going to chalk it up to growing pains, particularly post-major investment after years of impressive bootstrapping, but -- my oh my -- the SF-based satilite office was an utter mess. I understand the challenges of the office's infancy as a non-HQ hub, but, operationally, it was truly scary, almost laughable. No company with this amount of qualified milestones, proven sustainability, revenues, and funding behind it should be so sloppy in its execution. The concept of "best practices" certainly did not apply AT ALL; and if the leadership doesn't do something quickly, then I fear the company's failed attempt at a first impression in SF and Silicon Valley will haunt it for some time.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at WyzAnt in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for this position and was contacted within a week about planning a phone interview. The phone interview was casual and not too intimidating; I felt good about things by the end of the conversation. I was told they'd contact me again within the week, which they did, asking if I could come in for an in-person interview. I did, and I had a good time at their office and felt the interview went well. However, I did not receive an offer.

    Interview Questions

    • Since most of the work is from home, they asked me about a time when I'd had difficulty with a work-from-home situation and how I handled it.   Answer Question
