    Marketing Associate Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Avaya (Santa Clara, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email from a Talent Acquisition person to arrange a time to set up a phone interview. It took a couple of days and some prompting to get a response. I first spoke with the Talent Acquisition person about my background, experience, etc. Then, a second phone interview was set up to speak with a team member a couple of days later. I spoke with a manager in the Marketing team, who asked me questions about my background, experience, skills, what I would bring to the role, etc. I asked her about the team structure, where my role would lie in the overall team, and the main challenges that they were looking for the Marketing Associate to address. Overall, it went very well.

    I prompted the Talent Acquisition person a couple of days later for feedback and next steps since I hadn't heard anything back yet. They said they would follow up with the interviewer. No timeline was given. A week later, I had received no feedback, so I sent another email and was told that the interview went well and they would get back to me asap. Nearly 2 weeks later I emailed again to ask if there was any progress and was provided with the exact same answer 2 days later. I asked if there was any idea of a timeline for next steps at all since I was going to receive offers from other companies soon. I received the exact same answer (copy pasted) again, so I decided not to write back anymore.

    Over a week later, I finally received an email saying the position was put on hold for this quarter. All in all, a complete waste of time with poor communication throughout the process. It would not encourage me to apply for a position again.
