    Marketing - Campaign Operations Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tacoma, WA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Infoblox (Tacoma, WA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to this position with a cold start, meaning I didn't have any networking contacts. However, I applied because I thought the opportunity to learn the more technical side of digital marketing was interesting and a skill that I would like to have in my pedigree. After applying online, I got an email from Jobvite to sign up for an account. After setting up an account, I was asked to fill out some background paperwork online. After a few days, I used the Jobvite email function to ask for status of my application. I noticed a name (Katie Colito) my email message was sent to. I asked Katie to connect with me over LinkedIn and also emailed her at her Infoblox email account. I ended up calling Katie late on a Friday and she said she would get back to me on Monday. Katie called me and asked me one question and described the recruitment process. She stated she would send me a link to a CCAT (cognitive test) with a precursor personality test. The personality test was not graded, but the CCAT test was. I had to score at least 31 correct answers. There were 50 questions and was timed at 15 minutes (approx. 18 sec per question). She warned me that no one ever finishes all 50 questions, but to answer as many as I can. If I didn't know the answer, to guess at an answer and move on because wrong answers did not count against my score. I took the test and failed. Katie informed me that I could take the test again, but it was Infoblox policy to only allow candidates to take the test twice within a 3 month period. I asked to take the test again. Although my score increased, I didn't pass the test. The questions were easy in the beginning, but got progressively harder as you went on. The test was difficult. If you want to do well on the test, I recommend brushing up on math skills and be able to do %, fraction, and logic questions very fast (like in about 15 seconds). Although it was a pleasure to talk with Katie (she was very professional and had a delightful demeanor about her on the phone), the test was not necessary to get the best candidate for the job. I would of preferred an in-person interview, so they can gauge my intelligence and likeability. I come with over 20 years of career professional experience in one of the most respected industries. The last time I was in a school environment was in 2008 to earn my graduate degree. I believe I could have figured out the right answers to most of the questions if I had time to figure it out. Having the cognitive test made me feel like I was voted off the survivor island.

    Corporate Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tacoma, WA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Infoblox (Tacoma, WA) in January 2017.

    Interview

    A Sr. Recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn based on my profile. We set up a time for a phone screen, which lasted about 30 minutes. It was a general overview of my experience, specifically recruiting for networking and security engineers. At the end of the conversation, the recruiter asked me to apply online (which I did) and told me I needed to fill out a personality/aptitude assessment. She also wanted to set me up to speak with one of the hiring managers that would be in town later in the week. I gave her a few time slots I was available. She messaged me that he would not be available any of the times I was, but that he would be in town in two more weeks; I gave additional times. I completed the assessment. Five days later I received an automated decline from the Applicant Tracking system. I tried reaching the recruiter to confirm that it was intentional and not a mistake. I never received a response. It was a horrible candidate experience.

    Channel Sales Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Infoblox in December 2016.

    Interview

    I had a initial phone interview with a recruiter to determine initial fit. I then had a 1 hour phone interview with the hiring manager and two follow up phone interviews with other executives. I was selected for final in person interviews and I flew out to HW for many in person interviews and presentations. Overall the process was fairly similar to other processes Ive facilitated as a hiring manager and participated in as a candidate. There was standard delays due to year end and new year kick off meetings but nothing out of the ordinary.

    Interview Questions

    • Very conversational interview process, not pre determined canned questions. It was very refreshing as I feel interviews are a two way street so to speak.   1 Answer

    Pricing Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Clara, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Infoblox (Santa Clara, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Extremely fast interviewing process. I applied online and heard back within a couple business days, having had the initial HR phone screen later that week. Two phone interviews occurred in the two consecutive following days, along with a video chat with the head pricing analyst to assess my aptitude and thought process for a case analysis. I was offered the role the very next day, so the entire interview to hiring process took exactly one week. Not bad at all.

    Due to being a long-distant candidate, I was unable to accept the summer internship position, which was an incredibly difficult decision to make given the conveniently rapid process, location, and personalities of the people I interviewed with. Ultimately, I gracefully declined the offer via e-mail, and while I didn't expect a response, acknowledgement of my desire to maintain contact so we can revisit this next year (when I graduate) would have been nice. I guess it's just business as usual, as they say.

    Reasons for Declining

    I do not live in the San Francisco Bay Area and could not justify, as an intern, spending 30%+ of my monthly take-home pay on renting an overpriced bedroom in a shared living space. Without logistical headaches, I would have accepted the offer immediately.

    Pre-Sales Systems Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Infoblox (Dallas, TX) in July 2015.

    Interview

    interview process went quite smooth and rather quick. They wanted the position filled quickly since they had a deadline to get someone hired and registered for sales kickoff. I interviewed with 4 different guys, including the VP of system engineers. The discussions focused on sales methods, how I handle meetings and certain types of folks in the room. There was very little technical questions since I know the product pretty well.

    Negotiation

    Very easy. Basically told him what I was making at my last job and he said he couldn't go any higher but could match it (which was what I was wanting anyway)

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Infoblox in July 2015.

    Interview

    3rd party recruiter got me an interview with hiring manager. 1st phone screen with the hiring manager called me 10 minutes late so I didn't answer. That sets the tone and shows the type of manager this person is.

    Call got rescheduled with a different hiring person. Went very well so they called me in for a panel interview. The original hiring manager was again 10-15 minutes late.

    The other IT fill in guy was on time, courteous and had some solid scenario questions as well as have me a good idea of the layout.

    Hiring manager shows up and has a few scenario based canned questions that I answered in generality terms as well as specifics. He cuts it short and sends in the techs for more in depth technical questions.

    The two techs, one older gentlemen and a younger kid. The kid seemed peeved from the start or maybe he just had 0 personality. They go through the round robin of technical questions and I answer almost all of them correctly with a huge smile on my face.

    Entire Interview is over after about an hour and I fee confident I nailed it. I mean I've been doing the desktop thing for about 9'years now so I know what I'm doing.

    CAMPUS IS AWESOME!!

    Recruiter feedback from the client was that "I wouldn't be happy working there"
