    Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Ottawa, ON (Canada)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at Halogen Software (Ottawa, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    Long ... about 8 weeks in total. At first, things seemed to move efficiently and then there would be long periods of silence. At one point in the process, I was asked to create some work samples as part of the interview process, presumably to review my skills but I received no feedback on the samples at all -- irritating, since I was asked to turn them around quickly while I was out of town on a family holiday. I was also asked to complete a personality assessment type thing, which I never heard the results on. All in all, it was fine, but could have been more professionally handled. I needed the job and I was very happy to accept the offer when it finally came.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Halogen Software (Ottawa, ON (Canada)).

    Interview

    It was all by phone. Spent a lot of time on the phone with the lead of the department. He was friendly spoke well of the company. When it came to following up, he never did it. He let me know I was selected for the next round of interviews, but then completely disappeared never returned calls. Then 3 months later called me back, and explained that he was on a whirlwind trip with the company, he booked a phone interview - never called at the time he said he would. I followed up, and he didn't return my calls. A few other people I know have had the same experience with him. This was a total turn off of ever wanting to work at Halogen.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Halogen Software (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    I was referred by my friend to apply this job. The HR sent email to me in a very short time after submitting the application. He told me that he would arrange a time for me with a team. After two weeks, I still didn't get any response from them, even that they had recruited some one. I asked the HR that when I was able to get the interview because I was really interested in that position. The response was positive that he said we were in a busy progress and he was trying to arrange a time for me. After exact one month, I got an email from him says that we have already hired someone else. I didn't reply any more.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Halogen Software (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Went through several interviews and meetings - everything was positive and was told they were excited - gave me a date that they would confirm everything - went silent - no calls on date given. I had to call and it took several calls to get an answer. Told they did not get back to me because they were traveling (as if there's no internet in the UK). Disappointing hiring process and HR group.

    Sales Researcher Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Halogen Software (Ottawa, ON (Canada)) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Following a phone interview was a second interview that was actually an unstructured conversation where we delved into the sales process, markets, future plans for growth, etc. The sales manager was very knowledgeable and the interview itself was very enjoyable. I was surprised at both the lack of technical questions and how I was not asked at all about my educational background and experience. I did try, however, to insert the information about my own background that I thought was the most relevant into the 'conversation.'
