    Marketing Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Pace University (New York, NY) in August 2018.

    Interview

    My caveat for my review is that I do not work in academia and perhaps do not understand the hiring process for that industry.

    I was referred in to a position and also applied online. Approximately 3 months after I completed the online application I received an email from an interview coordinator who turned out to be a part time assistant for the hiring manager (a VP level). I was asked for my availability to come in for a committee interview and was given a list of 8-10 names who would be at that interview. When I asked if I needed to prepare anything, I was told no. Even though only 4 people from the list actually attended, this committee interview was somewhat stressful because I am not used to this interview format. At least everyone was professional, polite, and asked informed questions. I had no idea how I 'did' at the interview and did not hear any feedback nor receive any responses from my thank you emails.

    I did not hear anything for about 2 more months when I got another email from the interview coordinator congratulating me for being a finalist for the role and asking my availability for another committee interview. This time I was sent a list of about 8 very high level people who would attend. Again, I was told that I did not need to prepare anything. All 8 people on this list attended this interview -- and it was extremely stressful as there was one person on the committee who outranked all of the others. I felt that this individual guided most of the questioning and tone of the meeting and perhaps the other people in the room did not feel free to speak. Again, after the meeting I had no idea how it 'went' and never received any feedback.

    One high level person claimed to not be available at the time of that second group meeting and requested a 1:1 interview. From the moment this person greeted me in his office I could tell there was a 'problem.' First, he seemed quite angry to see me -- I'm not sure why, as I had never met this person before--and he was extremely hostile the entire time we met (30 minutes). He proceeded to badger me with a negative and skeptical tone about my credentials and was quite demeaning--even picking up my resume at one point and dismissively throwing it back down on his desk. At one point he flat out said 'I have no idea why I am meeting you as a finalist for this role' then asked me 'how I got to be a finalist.'

    I'm not sure what this person's issue was, but I found it completely unprofessional, regardless of the industry. After all, if he had such a problem with my candidacy, he could have just provided that feedback without torturing me with a 30 minute in person meeting. The interaction with him felt sadistic and I felt bullied.

    There were people I interacted with in the process who were lovely to deal with, but overall I now find myself turned off by my first interview experience in academia and question the culture at this particular institution. I believe that if you aren't treated well in the interview process, when everyone should be trying to put their best foot forward, it might be a sign of a toxic environment.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Pace University.

    Interview

    I had both a phone interview, and an on site interview. Both were average interviews, but unfortunately they do not give you an answer. After my second interview I received no phone call, no e-mail, no nothing. I did not even get a response to my thank you e-mail. Both lasted no longer than 20 minutes and both were also a 2-on-1 interview. Altogether they weren't completely unorganized, but could have been run a bit smoother. There is nothing worse than getting into an interview and feeling like they did not even look at your resume, and unfortunately that is how it felt here.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Pace University.

    Interview

    Heard back within a couple of days applying. First phone interview, then followed up with 2nd panel interview the following week. Had to give a presentation. Did not hear back for a month, then received email about going with another candidate. During the interview, everyone was friendly, and the questions were interesting. At first everyone seemed uninterested, but picked up after 15 or so minutes. Typical questions about work experience, situational questions, then personal questions. Although I was not offered a position, and it took what felt like forever to hear back, it was positive and it went well.
