Media Consultant Interview

Media Consultant
Oakton, VA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 5 days - interviewed at YP.

Interview Details – Very abrupt and rude interviewer. Keyan Wongus made certain I knew she was the boss and I was her subordinate. The fact that while she could not insist I work overtime if I did not I would not be at the company long.

Interview Question – Do I feel it necessary to spend the weekends at home with my family when there are clubs with men in them to go explore?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – No negotiation. Here is the offer. I desperately needed an income and accepted the position. I went through 4 years of unbelievable pain but since Ms. Wongus was terminated it has been rather pleasant at our office. After 6 months of no supervisor we now have one who must have been hired by an agency.

Sales Interview

Sales

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at YP.

Interview Details – Be prepared for an interview that can-and very well might-last over an hour. You will be expected to role play a selling experience with two managers at the same time. You will also be asked all about your past positions in great detail. If you get through that experience, you will then have 6 weeks of training that is split between the sales floor and classroom. They definitely don't go everything you need to know-in fact, they leave out a lot of ver crucial detail, so make sure that when you get on the sales floor you have someone experienced working right with for every single account for the first couple months so you can avoid senseless charge backs.

Interview Question – The most difficult thing is to role play in front of two managers at once during the interview -that's pretty harrowing because it can feel like they are double-teaming you.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There is absolutely no negotiating whatsoever

Product Manager Interview

Product Manager
Glendale, CA

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6+ weeks - interviewed at YP.

Interview Details – I was referred by an internal employee. The response was pretty swift and I had first 2 interviews within a week. After that there was a lull for 4 weeks, post which they called me for onsite.
I had 5 interviews and lunch with my hiring manager. Overall the interview process was not very difficult and focused on testing understanding of the industry and work style.

Interview Question – Had a brain teaser, and few sql questions. Most questions were about my past experiences.   Answer Question

Accounting Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

The process took a day - interviewed at YP in August 2013.

Interview Details – Communicated via email; Lack of follow thru by the company. Staff did not seem engaged with the hiring process as if they really did not care. I felt that the interviewer really did not understand what they really were looking for. Therefore others were on the line for backup.

Interview Question – Willingness to commit to working one year   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Company appears to lack focus on future growth; When contract employees are told not to talk to employees who work in the same building sent a message of distrust. No an environment I want to be in for 8 hours a day.
