Marketing Specialist Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at mBlox in August 2013.
Interview Details – I was contacted through e-mail by the Office Manager two weeks after I applied online to set-up a phone interview with the VP of Marketing. The phone interview lasted about 30 minutes, and I was asked to submit two writing samples.
A few days later I heard back from the Office Manager to set-up an on-site interview to meet with three contacts (the VP of Marketing, Product Manager, and consultant). The interview took place about a week later. I met with each for 30 minutes. I was asked questions pertaining to my professional background and scenario questions for this position. During the last interview I was told that I would hear back regarding the decision.
A week passed and I e-mailed an HR contact (whom I was told was my point of contact) to follow-up on the status of the position. A week passed...two weeks passed, and I heard nothing back. I double-checked my e-mail, and it was the correct e-mail address indeed. I obviously interpreted the non-response as a lack of interest. I was disappointed with the lack of follow-through in keeping a candidate informed on the decision made, whether favorable or not. After all, I had invested time and I was clearly left in limbo on the status of the decision made.
