    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BDS Marketing (Cerritos, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    They mostly asked about seller to customer conduct and selling strategies. Straight forward and fast interview process. There are two interviews and it seems like they decided to hire you if you get the second interview.

    Human Resources Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at BDS Marketing (Irvine, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Recruiting process was fine, the recruiter that reached out to me was fantastic, was great to talk to, gave me tons of advice and suggestions, and responded to emails.

    The interview itself would have been fine and not a negative experience, but the interviewer was reviewing the information of someone else the whole time, introduced me by the wrong name to another team member despite me giving them my resume and introducing myself.

    Then the follow up was just as confusing, recruiter contacted me to tell me I was no longer in the running for the position, but the interviewer replied to my thank you email saying there was slow-down in interviews and hadn't made a decision yet. So lack of communication on all fronts. Regardless of the truth I wouldn't continue with them.

    Not a terrible experience, but definitely needs some tightening up by the department. Experiences like this can drive away great talent.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BDS Marketing in October 2016.

    Interview

    Two step phone interview process, both really informal and laid back. I submitted an application and got a call from their recruiter about a week later. She asked the basic questions and gave me details in the hours and days for the position. At the end, she said she would put me through to the next phase of the process and scheduled me for another phone interview with the hiring manager for the next day.

    Negotiation

    I didn't bother to try to negotiate. The offer was fair for a part time seasonal position.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BDS Marketing in October 2016.

    Interview

    Had three interviews, went extremely well. I knew the last interview was with a person with less experience than I but the person had a big title. Having been in the industry for awhile I realized the background of the last person that interviewed. Nonetheless, extremely unprofessional impression from last person. Company did not even respond to say no you did not get the job, we are moving with another candidate etc.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at BDS Marketing in December 2015.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with the recruiter followed by a phone interview with the regional manager. I was promised a in person interview, but they never contacted me after that. I called, left voicemails, also email and I never got a response. I was told I had the experience they were looking for and would make a great fit. At least let me know if you have selected other candidates. This was a very negative experience and super unprofessional!!!!

    ARS Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at BDS Marketing (Denver, CO) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Called from recruiter. Then hiring manager called talked for five minutes. They need warm bodies like queen bee's need workers. It's fairly pathetic. The on-boarding was an even bigger joke. Even after I was hired all paperwork in place, the HR dept. kept sending messages that I needed to take my drug test which was done and approved a week earlier.
