    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Hammacher Schlemmer & Co..

    Interview

    I was called by HR within a couple days of applying and I set up an interview for the following week. The interview was about an hour and a half long, with two separate employees. It was very laid back and I did not feel intimidated. I was offered the job the next day, and accepted.

    Easy Interview

    Interview

    It felt rushed and the recruiter painted a picture that the team was cutting edge. Needed to fill quick. Interviewed with everyone in one day because I was with another company at the time. Sr. Manager, director, vice president.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Did not budge, but paid be in the top 75% of the salary range. Benefits such and you do not get them until 90 days...most people don't get that far. New ESOP is a tax inventive, not a benefit. Cannot use dental until 15 months after hire.

    ECommerce Merchandising Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Niles, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Hammacher Schlemmer & Co. (Niles, IL) in March 2012.

    Interview

    A little weird in that I only did a quick screening with a recruiter and an onsite with one person (who wasn't my direct manager). Interviewed in the indoor "jungle" which was different from any interview I'd had before. Questions for this role were largely use case based, but the role was so broad in it's responsibilities that there was a bit of discussion about what in my background would fit the various day-to-day tasks.

    Interview Questions

    • Questions revolved around the business and how I would analyze certain things. Many use case type questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Negotiate extra PTO time. Negotiate any technology you want because otherwise you'll never get it after the fact (ie. laptop, extra monitor).

    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Hammacher Schlemmer & Co. (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed at Hammacher Schlemmer at their office, just NE of Ohare. The office is very impressive with a lot of plants and even an area with a small water garden area.

    However, it was clear that this place has high turnover because no one I met with had been there for more than 2 years. The HR person was very reluctant to discuss this.

    Interview Questions

    • They asked standard questions about my background and what other skills I may have to offer.   Answer Question
    • They asked how I would adapt to a rapidly changing position with little to no leadership/training.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    People seemed unsure about their own jobs and what my tasks would be.

    The money was a little less than I was expecting for this position.
