Coworker tend to monopolize conversations, dismiss input from others and make decisions without first considering all the facts. The inexperienced college graduates are happy to work here. The learning curve is capped, and the workload is light
Dealing with a know-it-all can be exhausting and there are times when your best response is to ignore their ‘helpful’ hints as much as possible. They can often be close-minded as well–which means they can become a severe impediment to the creative process by blocking any idea other than their own. They simply know an idea either will or won’t work. Some know-it-alls can come across as opinionated, aggressive, brusque and even loud–all traits that won’t win over a lot of people at the office–and in fact can be easily construed as bullying behavior. Upper management moved on to bigger and better things.

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- No OfferNegative ExperienceDifficult Interview
I applied online – interviewed at Convertro (Santa Monica, CA).
Several phone interviews ~ with HR, someone on the team and a team leader of a different dept that I would have been working with. Everyone on the phone was very pleasant and HR was very helpful.
- In person I was interviewed by a couple of people on the team and some that were in charge of the tech side. Overall the questions were not relevant to my experience or the business, but more into the type of questions to see how your mind works. I understand the usefulness of this, they were just to the extreme. For example; "if you had a tub of blue and red balls and could only pull out one ball at a time, how could you make sure you only pull out blue balls"?? Other questions that reminded me of the typically..."two trains are traveling, one from the east and one for the west...the east train was going 75 miles an hour and the west was going.....when did the two trains meet"? Another question about a clock and the amount of time you had left if you used a certain amount of time... They also showed me a screen of their reporting page and asked me to explain it to them and what my recommendations would be to a client...after seeing it for two minutes for the first time. Also other internal information that they would show me and then quiz me. 1 Answer
