    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at QuinStreet (Foster City, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    There was an initial screening over the phone then a longer interview. After I had an Excel test I was brought in for a 5 hour interview with 5 people. It was apparent after the 2nd interview that what they advertised on their job posting was not the same position they interviewed for. In the job description it never said it was a client facing role, that it was based on analyzing metrics from campaigns. But all through the interview process they described the role as under the deposits vertical and that id be managing 3-4 clients directly. It baffles me how these two dramatically different positions are somehow the same. Anyways I received a short email 5 days after the intended response date, and after I had to send a follow up email that I was not selected for the position. I just wish that they were actually on time for when they said they'd respond to me on the results of my Excel test and last interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at QuinStreet (Foster City, CA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The first part of the interview was a phone call which was a very straight forward screening process. She asked questions regarding my resume, experience, and what my current job search looked like. Afterwards, she clearly stated the responsibilities and tasks of the position and made sure that it would be a right fit for me. The role involves a lot of excel and data analytics so brushing up on your excel skills is essential. Next, after I expressed my continue interest in the position, she gave me an excel assignment that must be completed within 24 hours and sent back to her.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at QuinStreet (Foster City, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    I went through 2 phone screens for 2 different departments. I completed an excel exercise and after 2 weeks was asked to come in for an onsite 3 hour interview with 4 people. The director walked me through a whiteboard exercise. The whole process was fairly nice but after that I sent my thank yous in and did not hear back from them. After calling in, it took a week and a half to say they made internal moves and filled another position with a better candidate.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at QuinStreet (Foster City, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It was just a brief phone screening to figure out what role was a right fit. She was asking me on a role I was interested in which I did not have much experience in. The initial role that I was looking forward to did not have an opening so I screened for the Market Analyst position. It was very informative.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at QuinStreet (San Mateo, CA) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out via email to set up an initial phone interview. I completed the phone interview successfully, very basic questions about my qualifications. A couple days later, the recruiter notifies me that the upper hiring powers have already filled the position, and they wanted me to apply for other roles instead. Other reviews here on Glassdoor have mentioned this same occurrence before, which makes me feel that the recruiter was unprofessional in this case. If they had checked in with hiring managers more frequently, candidates would not have to waste their time talking to them even when the role they want is not available. The fact that this has happened to other candidates, as indicated on Glassdoor, shows that the recruiter is lazy and being unprofessional.
