    Market Research Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at GMR Marketing in November 2019.

    Interview

    Similar to other reviews, I’m very disappointed on how the level of professionalism was not maintained by GMR in following up with me regarding the position after I sent an email two weeks after I had a phone interview with them. This happened to me before about 5 years ago with GMR for a different position. Please do not leave candidates hanging like that. Also, when posting the position, please keep the same name of the position intact rather than change it back and forth, potentially confusing candidates.

    This was the first stage and I went through a very basic screening interview. The interviewer was nice and polite. The questions were basic and the whole interview lasted no more than 20 mins.

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GMR Marketing in April 2019.

    Interview

    This was one of the least professional interview experiences I've ever had. An HR rep emailed me twice asking for availability for a phone interview and neither time ever responded to my email. Finally, after a 3rd email and a week later, I received an email response and an interview confirmed. The interview began and the rep never once mentioned or apologized for their lack of email communication. It was like it never happened! The final response that was promised to me the week prior to my receiving it was never followed through with either. I had to email HR, again, and wait an additional 4 days for a no thank you email response.

    The lack of respect for the time I took to set time aside from my current career with hopes of response was incredibly discouraging. The lack of pure professionalism while requesting time and then not responding leaves me wondering how well organized HR at GMR really are. Maybe it's time for them to re-evaluate the way their HR handles interviewing candidates.

    Strategic Sourcing Manager Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GMR Marketing (New Berlin, WI) in January 2019.

    Interview

    Everyone that I spoke to from start to finish was very nice and pleasant. The recruiter that I spoke to keep me informed during the whole process and checked in to make sure I was still interested in the role and to let me know I was still being considered. The team was very informational and direct about the role and their expectations. I could tell they care about their team and seemed to be great leaders. This would be a team I would like to be a part of.

    Although I did not get the role, this is a company that I am keeping on my radar for future opportunities. Seems like a great and fun place to work with great leadership.

    Account Coordinator, Trainee Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GMR Marketing (New Berlin, WI) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Usually GMR recruits at career fairs on campus, however, if GMR does not come to your school you have to be asked to apply, as the application does not get posted online. So do job shadows, or ask for an informational interview to get your foot in the door your Junior year. Right away Senior year the application will be due. I had two phone interviews throughout September, then was asked to come in for "GMR Days" with 14 others at the end of October. This is a half-day interview/question panel/speaker event. Offers are made a few weeks later to 2-5 people usually for HQ
