    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.

    Inside Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Tacoma, WA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Infoblox (Tacoma, WA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    The reviews on the company were mixed but they seemed very reputable so I wanted move forward. They are very thorough with their interviewing process to weed out unqualified people which I could see how some candidates may not appreciate. They don't even talk to you until you pass 2 tough tests which gets them the best candidates possible it seems. Passed the tests and moved on to interview first with the recruiter, next interview with Sales Manager, then final interview with Global Sales Director. Through the whole process I could feel that they wanted to build the best team possible. Everyone was really informative, and seemed to be excited for the future of the company which made me excited to be there as well. The interviews went great and I felt like it was a great fit as did they because they sent an offer which I accepted.

    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

    Network Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Omaha, NE
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Infoblox (Omaha, NE) in July 2017.

    Interview

    There were 4 total phone interviews, one by the recruiter which was a sales pitch, one by the program manager, and two by other network engineers. It was odd that they reached out to me as I'm not a network engineer but I do have the required security clearance. Overall it was a huge waste of my time. The last person who interviewed me was insulting and not very personable. It seems his opinion of me prevailed.
