    Senior Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Katten (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with the recruiter. Was brought in for a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager. I thought the interview went well, but never heard back from the company despite following up with the recruiter who never returned my calls/emails. If someone takes time out to come to your company to interview in person, they should be given the courtesy of a response either way.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Katten (Washington, DC).

    Interview

    The interview process was fairly quick. It began with me sending my resume into the hiring manager. I was then called by a member of HR for a phone screen. The phone screen lasted about 30min and was somewhat casual; the in-person interview lasted about an hour and was relaxed and comfortable. After meeting with the hiring manger, I was introduced to one other person with whom I would be working and we chatted for about 10 minutes.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview was standard for a law firm and was more of a conversation. Typical questions like goals and past experiences, what brought you to this point, how do you handle certain situations, etc. were asked.   1 Answer

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Katten.

    Interview

    Interviewed first by HR, then by several different higher-ups in the department. Most of the questions were basically the same and ended up repeating the same things to a bunch of different people. They were very forthcoming with the nature of the work and did give a good idea of what it would be like working for the firm.
