    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Market America in February 2016.

    Interview

    I had a phone screening with the HR Recruiter (she was a very pleasant woman), followed by a phone interview with the hiring manager and one of his direct reports. The interview seemed to go well and I was advised by the Recruiter that in order to move forward to the next phase of the interview process, they would need a list of my references. I provided several professional references, a personal reference and pointed them to the 18 recommendations I have listed on my LinkedIn. One of my references advised me they were contacted and provided a reference for me and was advised by a Recruiter, "We are in the processes of moving forward with her." I'm sure all of my other there reference were positive, as I have a stellar professional track record. However, I never heard back from the Recruiter or hiring manager, even after a couple of follow attempts.

    I found this very unprofessional and I'm inclined to believe this is a reflection of how the organization operates. Nonetheless, the process was fruitful as I was offered an awesome employment opportunity by one of my references they contacted, as a result of them finding out from them that I was available and seeking new employment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Market America (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    Only got a phone interview with the company after talking with a recruiter. I talked with four(?) people at the same time. The interview started with me discussing my interests, then developed into discussing my education. I then had to elaborate on projects I had worked on during my education and given an opportunity to ask any questions. Once the interview was over, I was contacted by my recruiter and given a coding assignment to work on and submit. The assignment was vague and after my first submission I was contacted about additional things I could do with the assignment. After submitting a second version, I was told by my recruiter that they weren't going to hire me.

    Application

    The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Market America (Greensboro, NC).

    Interview

    I interviewed back they were just starting their big hiring phase. Back then, they had a couple great people in management and were focused on getting in people they could shape. Now, they try to give hard interviews because they think there's a lot of worthless developers they are stuck with, completely unrealizing that all of their problems with some developers is their own fault caused by extremely low morale and extreme limitation of everyone's potential, in some cases awesome potential and ability... Do not take a job here. They are completely underserving of awesome talent they seek. They are underserving of even mediocre talent. Take the developer's reviews to heart. They are not lying.

    When I interviewed with Market America, I was placed into a meeting room with the architecture team and the potential manager that I would be working for. I was asked a series of logical/IT questions; and a series of questions about my previous work experience and employers. After leaving the interview, I was unsure of where i stood with the position. But later (after they had interviewed other candidates) I received an offer.

    Interview

    HR asked my project management experience at the beginning before I was able to introduce myself. She told me she will have manager to decide if to contect me further. However, there is no feedback at all.......... I think feedback is just a simple mail you can sent out to show respect...

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Market America.

    Interview

    Phone screen with HR, phone screen with manager, in person with manager, job offer by phone from HR. The people in the office that I met during/after the interview didn't say anything negative about the company, but they gave hints about the difficult work environment. Everyone looked depressed, worn down, and not at all happy to be there. I quickly found out why.

    Interview Questions

    • They didn't really ask many questions, just told me about the job and that it would be a "challenging" environment with a "high noise level." They weren't joking.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    They gave me the $$ I requested, but beware, when you start they try to give you just ONE week of PTO, including sick, vacation, and personal days. That's five days for sick, vacation, AND personal days for an entire year.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Market America.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty easy. There was only one interview and it was in person with the eventual intern manager/supervisor, who was a pretty cool guy. The interview itself was very informal. They asked the normal questions and went over my resume just asking me to expound on each item. They were especially interested in writing skills pertaining to social media.
