    Sr. Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Bolthouse Farms.

    Interview

    The interview process was two months in total, including a two week delay from an original email screening and another three week delay in between discussing the role with the HR Manager.

    The interview with the hiring manager, included her deep sighing in between responses and beginning to work and multitask during our discussion. She closed the interview with "we'll put you on an interview loop". What does that mean? How many interviews is that? What is the timing for these interviews? These questions were not answered until after three additional interviews. The three interviews included behavioral based interviews. None of the interview panelists seemed to know much of the role or said they "could not shared due to confidentiality", while all consistently offering neutral to negative commentary on the hiring manager.

    The only prompt part of this interview process was the HR Manager calling to let me know that they are "moving in another direction", but was able to no offer no feedback, as he said the hiring manager was "talking in circles".

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Bolthouse Farms (Bakersfield, CA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Had four interviews for the same position - two phone and two video. All interviews seemed to go really well but never heard back after the fourth interview and did not receive a response when I followed up. I invested time and energy into each interview so would have been nice to receive even a rejection. For how large this company is, it appears to be very disorganized. No one was ever aware of what the next steps In the interview process would be. May have dodged a bullet.

    Interview

    I applied at a job fair, it was my last stop, not by choice, everyone was just bunched up at their booth the majority of the time. mainly for the free drinks, I assume. So after a few minutes of waiting in a line I had walked up to the hiring manager and introduced myself , handed the hiring manager my resume. I explained my previous work history, the hiring manager then asked to speak with me in a less crowded area Gave me a quick interview. After two weeks the hiring manager called me in for a formal interview. I showed up about 30 min and was seen. I was asked basic interview questions then given a tour around the plant after the tour I was dropped off at the gate and told that they would call me with their decision in two weeks. Two weeks later exactly I was called and asked to fill out a background packet and go to a drug screen started working that following week
