    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at New Balance (Boston, MA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    In-person interview, very conversational, took about an hour. First met with HR recruiter and explained why I was interested in position/ why I was a good fit. Then met with 3 members of the marketing team for about 20-30 each. Discussed my general knowledge of the industry and brand, relevant experience from my resume and personal questions to see if I was a good match culturally for the team.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at New Balance in October 2016.

    Interview

    Had about 4 interviews within a two week span. Hiring team was really sweet and did not lead me on in anyway of actually getting a position. They actually called me to tell me I did not get the position which I fully respect out of a company. Most people just don't answer you back. They hired internally.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at New Balance (Cortland, NY) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online, got an email about an video conference interview the next day. Scheduled the interview for the following day and took about 20 minutes to complete. It was for a 10 month program that would have required for me to relocate and only took place on the weekends. Not exactly the easiest schedule to work around, and they were strict about hour flexibility.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at New Balance.

    Interview

    Phone interview with recruiter than in person interview with two district managers. Took a while between the initial phone interview with no correspondence. The recruiter called about 2 weeks after the initial phone interview hoping I could do the in person interview that day otherwise there would not be another opportunity. Obviously this was a bit strange, did not have much time to prepare for the interview. Interview overall seemed like they were searching for competitor information.
