    Marketing Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Digital Alchemy in June 2018.

    Interview

    I was contacted by Digital Alchemy who liked my profile. They asked I send a resume and several writing samples. After multiple e-mails, they requested I join them for a 2-hour in-person interview at their office.

    I completed 2 online tests (logic and personality), took about 1-1.5 hours total.

    Then two video/phone interviews with Australia-based staff and an executive, total about 2 hours.

    In total 6 hours to complete the last stage of the interview process. This was also the last time I heard from them for the next month, although they said they would get back to me soon (the start date was less than 1 month away.)

    Over the next 2-3 weeks, I sent HR 2 more e-mails inquiring about the time frame (as a freelancer, I try hard to honor any old and new commitments to clients.)

    Finally, I sent 1 more e-mail HR, this time CC-ing someone else. The CC-d person promised HR would get back to me by EOD.

    Two days after this e-mail, I telephoned HR. HR told me the position had changed weeks ago. Someone else had been hired. They had not received or read any of my previous e-mails, which they said was unusual given that we had previously communicated with no issue through e-mail.

    They apologized and promised to get to the bottom of why they did not receive my e-mails. I haven't received a reply on this yet.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Digital Alchemy (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Face to face interview , the online tests, panel interview.
    The management and the HR definitely need improvement, slightly unprofessional process and response to candidates, quit disappointed. Saw many negative employee reviews from other platforms such as seek. I suggest people to do some research especially on staff reviews consider before applying for their roles

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Digital Alchemy (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    Clearly no process around this. Random people jumping in and asking questions that clearly show they do not know what the role entails. This was a very odd interview but they made a lot of promises about the company unfortunately they were fruitless.

    Negotiation

    No negotiations. Take it or leave it.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Digital Alchemy (Sydney (Australia)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Applied online
    Did general online assessment tests
    Got asked to come to an Assessment Center
    The assessment center was really great. It was very relaxed and just had 10 of us doing 2 group activities. I feel like it was a little biased, the HR reps running the AC picked the groups and the group leaders for every activity, so if you weren't picked as a leader, you didn't really get a chance to show your skills.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Digital Alchemy.

    Interview

    Applied for business analyst position for product management team, but during the interview, they said the business analyst position is actually no longer available and asked me if I'd be interested in a support role. I said no in a polite way and got out of the interview.

    I think this sort of information should be given BEFORE the interview, so that candidates can avoid wasting a day-off if they are not interested.

    Interview Questions

    • We actually don't have that position available anymore, would you be interested in a support role instead?   2 Answers
