    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carmel, IN
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at CNO Financial Group (Carmel, IN) in June 2017.

    Interview

    Contacted by their recruiter and met for an in-person interview a few days later. Pretty straightforward. I met separately with two people in the department. They asked very detailed questions about my experience and were very detailed about the demands of the job and the work environment.

    National Training Consultant Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at CNO Financial Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Interviewed specifically for "PMAU"...Vetted by a recruiter, phone Interview with future Manager, F2F interview with future Manager. Come back for F2F with Director, receive phone offer. I should have run. Fast. In a phone interview, the Manager described the work as "We are an Agent Manufacturing Machine"... I thought she was being cheeky; she really meant that. I started looking for another job within 6 weeks of hire. I spent all day on the phone "training" people, which consisted of calling them to verify their address. Preparing sales kits and sending them via FedEx, Calling them to check on their progress and go over the answers to any quiz questions missed (which they also received via email). Mostly, I spent all day doing Data Entry / Training Coordination. I'm a Trainer and Instructional Design Professional. I'm not a Training Coordinator. They do have a GREAT Training Coordinator - but she also does a lot of the same tasks as a National Training Consultant. VERY High turnover.

    Interview Questions

    • Conversational interview. "walk me through your resume". Very untraditional for today's top companies. No Behavioral questions, or discussion with HR prior to Hire.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CNO Financial Group.

    Interview

    There was an initial phone interview which I did well on and was supposed to move onto an onsite interview. We were planning an onsite interview and coordinating through email but then the contact person told me that they were "going to pass on scheduling an on-site interview" suddenly. Out of nowhere. It was extremely unprofessional. Goes to show the type of company it is. Full of debt and poor management anyways. Don't waste your time here.

    Interview

    Overall negative experience !
    30 mins interview back to back with 4 people. One of them came 10 min late. Two of them didnt show full attention to the interviewing process and were looking at their laptop. Dont know why they accepted the interview meeting in the first place. The Talent Acquisition did not respond to emails or voicemails. Overall, tells me how I will be treated if I accept their offer.

    Manager Level Position Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at CNO Financial Group (Carmel, IN) in September 2015.

    Interview

    This HR department really needs to get their act together with their HR processes. I interviewed for a job and never heard back. I called the recruiter I was working with, Jonathan, and left several messages and my call was never returned. Several times since then, I have received a voicemail message from a different recruiter there saying they would like to speak to me about an opportunity. I called the recruiter back and left a message. They never return your call either. If this is an indication of how the organization is run, I would not want to work there.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at CNO Financial Group (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Initially, an in-house recruiter got in touch with me via LinkedIn. After a brief phone screening/interview, I was invited to an in-person interview session on site where I interviewed with the recruiter again as well as with the two team members I was going to work with. Finally, I was invited to another interview with the VP of marketing. The whole interviewing experience was very fair and cannot necessarily be described as a "grilling" process.

    Interview Questions

    • I forget the questions in detail (it's been over a year), but I remember that it was more informal and targeted at work experiences.   Answer Question
