    Associate Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lorton, VA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Danone (Lorton, VA).

    Interview

    The interview process was simple and straightforward. Employees and managers seem very nice but the job descriptions are a big problem. I went in for two interviews not knowing which is which and discovering that both are for the same position but for different brands and working for two teams. These details were not written in the JD nor communicated to me beforehand, however, the hiring managers made me feel comfortable and explained the discrepancies to me.
    Another major issue was that there were tasks and roles required for the position that were absolutely not mentioned in both job descriptions, and it was a bit disappointing as I have spent an adequate amount of time studying and preparing for this interview opportunity with full commitment and passion but was caught a little bit off guard.

    All in all, aside from the job description issue, it was a very nice experience and has given me a boost to move forward, and I would love to interview again in the future for this company.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Danone.

    Interview

    External recruiter reached out and organized with internal Dannon HR. Some of the worst experiences I've dealt with in HR. Talk about setting a poor reflection on the company but should have seen this as a sign of what was to come. Went onsite in White Plains to meet with HM. The culture seemed non-existent, way too quiet for the morning, I even asked if there was a meeting going on but no. The few lost souls I saw on the way to conference room looked like poor shells. Simply put they looked miserable. The whole vibe seemed way off. Think Stephen King's the langoliers. Looks like a corporate office but no one around and eerily too quiet. The HM also seemed somewhat unqualified for the role they were in, and many questions being asked of me were basic entry level marketing, which also seemed off since the role was not entry level. I left feeling underwhelmed and never heard back which turned out to be a good thing. Insiders in the industry say it is one of the worst places to work, and apparently they know this and lure you in with higher vaca days and salary. Buyer be ware!

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Danone.

    Interview

    I interviewed in the US and the process took months. I had to keep going back to meet with various members of the leadership team. I was made a lot of promises that weren't kept, and now see that I was lied to thru the whole process. Some of the people I interviewed with were down right rude. I wish I had taken that as a sign and never accepted, it only got worse as time went on.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Danone in January 2012.

    Interview

    The hiring process was rather simple. First, HR interview, then an interview with who became my boss. The whole process took about a month. I got hired as an outsourced employee and I was supposed to be on trial for one year. After that, I got "promoted" into an internal employee.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing really. Just specific but very basic questions about market research and motivation to work in market research   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    There was no much negotiation. Danone is not known for being able to negotiate.
