Interview

The interview process was quick and Forbes reached out immediately to speak. The hiring manager was very nice and provided a clear understanding of the role/interview process ahead. After the first interview I met with the head of east coast sales who was very professional and asked great questions/listened well. I was passed through to the final interview with the CMO who was also very professional and gave about 8 minutes of her time. I never heard back from Forbes after the 3rd interview which is not something you would expect from a company like Forbes. After sending several follow up emails to the hiring manager and sales managers, still no word. Whilst the process was overall good, I believe it is common decency to follow up after an interview, especially a 3rd round interview, regardless of the outcome. It would have made my experience positive with just that simple follow up.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Forbes

Interview

Weirdest company ever. Don't give an interview here. Recruiter reached out to me for a company called forbes advisor- tech part of forbes and asked basic details with expected package. First they conducted a 1 hour tech interview which ended in 12 mins. Not even one tech qn was asked. Looked like the interviewer was expecting someone else. They call me one week later to say they're conducting a hr round. They get all my details. This round was three times longer than the first round. They got all my documents and even my references and ghosted me. 1 week later I call them they say they're not going ahead and they don't know why. May be it is because of the package expectations. Not sure if this was a scam. But all the interviewers have a profile in LinkedIn. Anyway stay away from this company.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week. I interviewed at Forbes in Feb 2022

Interview

The interview process was similar to most for an SEO Manager position -- a phone screen to test basic knowledge and aptitude, a case study presenting how you'd grow the vertical you would potentially be hired for, and finally a conversation with the GM over that vertical. The interview went well and they had nothing but positive things to say. Without feedback, it's hard to judge if they lacked candor or it's their policy to lead candidates on.

Difficult Interview
Application

I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Forbes (New Delhi)

Interview

1st step: a 30 minutes interview with the line manager which went well. No mention about contract type, salary of anything related to the job, just a general char about me and my experiences. Very informal. 2nd step: an almost impossible assignment to be completed in a very short amount of time. At this point I felt I had been scammed and that they just wanted me to do some work for them for free. I might be completely wrong about this, and I will never know, but for some reason I felt there was something not right about this interview and specifically about the presentation they asked me to do.
