    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Providence, RI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cityside Distribution (Providence, RI) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Went into Providence and paid $10 for parking for a 15 minute 1st interview. They made the company seem like it was marketing for companies and you make decent money. Went back for a 2nd interview and paid $11 to park. In the office for 20 minutes with other people being interviewed then was sent out to meet up with an employee so they could show you what they do. It was walking around random plaza's and stores trying to get people to buy makeup bags of crappy makeup. Not really a marketing job. Don't waste your time.

    Event Coordinator Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Cityside Distribution.

    Interview

    When I arrived at the Providence office, everyone was very welcoming and the building was very nice. During my actual interview, the manager didn't really ask me standard interview questions - he more so asked about my current job and why I want to pursue event planning. After chatting for 15 minutes, I was offered a second interview. During my initial interview, he mentioned events but spoke more about marketing which concerned me. Later on in the day, I emailed asking for more information regarding the position, and was told I would begin in a position handling B2B marketing and would have the option to move to events once I hit managerial status. The ad said Event Coordinator - I wouldn't have applied had I known I would begin in marketing. The ad wasn't entirely truthful.

    Interview

    I applied, got an email the day later along with a phone call and had an interview scheduled quickly. After the 1st interview I declined as it was not what I was expecting. This job is for Marketing... as in you're selling products to customers. One of the examples I was given was selling cosmetics. These are the people you see in malls or Walmart's trying to sell you products. The ad I applied for said Customer service rep....

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cityside Distribution in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very deceitful job title aimed at bringing in naive, early in career individuals. They called me back within 30 minutes of applying and seemed frazzled when I asked specifically what the job consisted of. It seemed they did not know how to speak off of the script they are force fed, Be very wary of catchy titles.

    Brand Associate? Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Cityside Distribution (Providence, RI) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was the most misleading experience I have ever had. The first day was meeting with the office leader and hearing about the company and all of its advancement opportunities. Which sounded very fabricated. Everything about it was so vague. The second day was a "job shadow" which consisted of me driving 45 minutes out of my way and wasting my own gas and mileage to follow around an employee while she went into random businesses trying to spread the word about their product. I was so aggravated with the experience that I didn't even go back to the office to finish the interview. If any recent college grad is trying to gain professional experience in the work force, I personally do not think this is the business for it.

    Business Development Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Cityside Distribution (Providence, RI) in November 2015.

    Interview

    The whole process is a script, email from assistant contained typo's and was a standard template. Met with owner who said the company made $60 million last year. After I asked what the companies clients consisted of I was told local businesses which doesn't add up. He told me they have over 40+ locations but the only location online is in Providence. The position I applied for was a development and they offered me a 2nd interview in what is a door to door salesmen which is not how a marketing company functions. He then said they have a new cosmetic line... why would a marketing company have a line? Because they buy cheap cosmetics from China. After quick online research it appears other candidates were told of this cosmetics line a while ago. I was told the company was around for several years, but the company is less than a year old under this name. Phone line was listed under another marketing companies name. List goes on and on, after reading other reports on here it seems my experience is consistent. Funny how the company responds to these with similar responses and doesn't change their cheap scam strategy. Company needs to be shut down, they were interviewing several other candidates the same day as myself seems like they do this gig several days a week.
