    Summer Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at American Greetings (Cleveland, OH) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The whole process took me about 2 months but the company messed up with their recruitment policy. I applied online, went through the phone interview with the manager, got offered the internship, and waited for another 2 weeks for HR's background check. Until April did the HR person withdraw their offer and disqualify me for needing a work sponsorship in the future, but not during this summer internship. The worst part was that they didn't bother checking this ahead before offering me the job, and wait until it's too late for me to find another summer job to give me the update. It was very difficult contacting them through email and the manager who interviewed me didn't bother to reply to me in the end.

    recorded questions and then my answers were recorded. It was very award not being able to ask to clarify the question so I had to answer as I understood the question. Then I had to meet one on one at a fast food restaurant for a final interview. Things do move slowly just because everything has to go through corporate.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    Contacted for a phone interview more than 6 months after applying for the position. The interview started off with the typical question "Why are you looking for a new job?". I was asked for my duties at my current job, my Excel and Access levels of expertise and if there was an opportunity for advancement at my current job. As others have pointed out they do ask about your strengths. I was quite surprised to hear that the recruiter who has been with the company for a very long time learnt about the private takeover offer from the Internet. I felt like the recruiter was annoyed by the questions I asked. Logically that was the end of the process.
