    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Rolling Meadows, IL
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rational (Rolling Meadows, IL).

    Interview

    I cannot stress how unprofessional their corporate interviewers are. (Except VP in HR who was really nice.) They were so desperate to hire; they just brought in people who have irrelevant experience and made them think it was possible.

    1. They were late for all three occasions, including phone interviews and in-person interviews. See, this is flexible. It's not horrible in all situations. But one of their interviewers had the audacity to say other people are unprofessional when she dressed unprofessionally and arrived late. Again, it wouldn't be horrible in each situation. But it is horrible if you are a double-standard hypocrite.

    2. Don't expect them to show you around as you would expect if they decide to bring you in for an onsite interview. In fact, there seemed like nothing was following a standard interviewing procedure at all. They weren't there when I arrived. They just sat down without self-introduction and started to ask questions.

    3. Gosh, wasn't one of the interviewer rude! I don't want to get into it. But she was the rudest and entitled person I have ever met in a professional capacity.

    4. I suggest you change your onsite test for writing. There is nothing to test if you are giving out a specific agenda. It would be much more efficient to give out a spreadsheet than writing it into an email. That doesn't test people skills nor writing skills.

    Question and answer with regional director. We talked about the description of the job ad from the online job board. The interview was from a very basic service background and my experience and skills was far above his knowledge.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rational.

    Interview

    Sehr offenes Gespräch, welches sehr informativ und dennoch "locker" war. Der Empfang war freundlich und das Gespräch wurde mit einer Person geführt. Alles in allem eine durchwegs positive Erfahrung v.a. durch Fragen über eigene Interessen, Vorstellungen und Fähigkeiten, welche ich im Nachhinein perfekt einbringen konnte.
