    Client Support Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alexandria, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Fishbowl Marketing (Alexandria, VA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    It started off simply enough with a recruiter interview, a phone interview, and a 1:1 with the team leader. Everything seemed to be running smoothly, they made me an offer the next day, and I accepted.

    Fast forward to a week later. The head of HR calls me to inform me that they've rescinded my offer due to the fact that I attempted to negotiate a salary. Keep in mind that their offer was below the industry standard for the area, I had another, much higher offer, and was just ensuring that I did my best in advocating for myself.

    Fishbowl did not appreciate this. After misrepresenting my education and experience to me (they told me I had a college degree and one year experience when, in fact, I have 2 masters from major public universities and had, at the time, 3 years support experience), they told me I should be grateful for my unliveably low offer and that I'd "disappointed them and couldn't be trusted."

    Needless to say, I put them in contact with my lawyer.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Fishbowl Marketing.

    Interview

    It was a great hiring process, the recruiters were passionate about the company and explained the position very well. As usual headhunter would make the initial contact, followed up by HR manager until finally with hiring manager/s.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Fishbowl Marketing.

    Interview

    They were super nice and helpful! I actually dropped off my resume at a career fair and they emailed me asking for an interview time that worked. It seems like their process is based completely on their perception of your resume.
    Unfortunately I was late to the interview. They tried their best to accommodate my changing circumstances. This company seems like they really care about who they keep in their organization.
    Don't be late and take it seriously! I truly regret missing this opportunity.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fishbowl Marketing (Alexandria, VA) in March 2014.

    Interview

    Pretty Standard - Focus was on culture fit, trust & accountability more than ability. Management really wanted to understand how you deal and interact with clients and Senior Management - can you control and lead a conversation with multiple actors.

    Sales Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Fishbowl Marketing (Alexandria, VA) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Scheduled a phone interview with an HR girl, didn't hear from her the day of the call or a few days after. Called me back on a Monday and said that she was in a meeting or something, and then took about 2 weeks to schedule the final interview. I ended up not even scheduling the interview because I was just really put off by the whole process.

    Enterprise Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Alexandria, VA
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fishbowl Marketing (Alexandria, VA) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Once we (recruiter and I) identified Fishbowl as an opportunity, it went really quickly. I had a couple of interviews on the phone and then did a couple of in person interviews where I met the teams that I'd work alongside. A week after that, they sent an offer letter and its been a good time ever since.One thing I did not appreciate is that I was told there was not a lot of room for salary negotiation late in the process. If I knew that, I would have thought twice about the opportunity in all honesty. It tells a lot of about a company that says its our way or the highway in salary negotiations.

    Email Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Fishbowl Marketing.

    Interview

    Was contacted in October 2013. Had one phone interview and two in person interviews, but was not offered the position. Very difficult to get in contact with the people I was meant to e-mail. Although they offered me to e-mail with any questions, when I did send the e-mail I never received a response from anyone until three and a half weeks later when I was told I did not get the job.

    Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Fishbowl Marketing.

    Interview

    Got an email from a recruiter within a week of applying online and we set up a phone interview a few days later. The day of the interview, the recruiter had something "come up" and asked me what times I was available in the following weeks. I immediately responded with lots of options for her but never heard back either by phone or email. Three weeks later I emailed for the third time asking if I could please speak to someone because I was still interested in the position. All I got back was "sorry we haven't been able to connect!" We did eventually have the phone interview (an hour later than scheduled, I might add) and it was very pleasant but I never heard anything back after that.
