    I have been working at Parchem full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I’m earning more in my first couple years out of college than I expected, which has worked out great. There is a friendly work environment with good employee camaraderie. Management provides a lot of guidance and is focused on employee success.

    Cons

    Be prepared to put in long hours upfront. Also there can be some extended periods of high pressure assignments.

    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at Parchem.

    Interview Details

    I received a phone call from the manager requesting I come in for an interview. She gave me a brief phone interview to which I answered all the questions easily and well. Despite the fact that it is 1.5 hours away and I had to miss my last week of class, I still took the trip. When I got to the office I could not find it easily because they have no sign on their building, and the first floor is actually an art gallery. I called the manager and found the building and was lead upstairs to a meeting room where I filled out an application.
    Before I had completed the extensive application, two women walked in, neither of which were the manager I had been speaking to for the past week about the interview. They both sat down and one proceeded to ask me what position I was applying for. I replied that it was the Marketing position. She gave me a confused look, gave her colleague a confused look, stood up, went outside and asked. Right from the start it became clear that these women knew absolutely nothing about this job or what position this interview was about. This was reflected even further when I provided them each with my resume that they had clearly never looked at before, and were absolutely confused as to how Social Media Marketing had anything to do with Marketing at all. I tried to explain to them how it was hand in hand, but they couldn't grasp it. They excused themselves to talk to the CEO, came back in literally a minute and told me they would let me know either way. I never heard from them again.
    It was probably the shortest, and most pointless interview I've ever been on and hope to ever go on again. The two women had absolutely no idea who or what they were interviewing for and did not understand why I even applied for the job. What confused me is why I received an interview at all if they did not think my Social Media Marketing background was enough experience for a Marketing position.
