    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Red Ventures (Fort Mill, SC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    You start out with a 10-15 minute phone pre screening interview, then on to a face to face 90 minute interview, where you will go though a moc call (script provided after phone interview), and watch a video based on a previous real call to give you an idea of what the job is like. Its hard selling, if you don't get the sale they don't like it!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Red Ventures (Fort Mill, SC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    From first applying online to having the onsite interview, the whole process took about 4 weeks.

    They started me off with a phone screen, asking about my background, projects, and interest in the company. I was then assigned a programming assignment - to be completed within the week or two. If you finish this early, make sure to spruce and clean it up a bit before submitting.

    About 2 weeks after submitting the assignment, I received a request for an onsite interview.

    The whole onsite interview process took 4 hours. The casual nature of the interview itself immediately put me at ease. It started with a tour of HQ and several meetings thereafter. I spoke with several different interviewers in 30 minute intervals on topics spanning behavioral to technical.

    It only took 2 days for HR to get back to me.

    Cultural fit is vital to getting hired, parallel to technical ability and aptitude for learning. Communication and passion for technology is also key.

    The interview process is quite thorough, but was not necessarily difficult.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Red Ventures (Fort Mill, SC) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through my college and had an on campus interview that was half behavioral and half a case study. I then was invited onsite. I had a TERRIBLE experience. The culture is very fratty and drinking oriented--they have a beer garden, happy hours to bond with members of your team, and the trip to Cancun was described by employees as akin to a college spring break trip. I was left with the impression by employees that if you do not drink, you will not fit in.

    There is a dinner with Red Ventures employees before the actual on-site interview, and I was frequently talked over or completely ignored while the employees talked to interview candidates they knew from their college. I felt very uncomfortable and silenced.

    The office is all full of a similar demographic, and when I asked about how Red Ventures defined diversity, my interviewer told me that it was complicated. Apparently, Red Ventures is working on it and open to change and having diversity as a 'project' if a new hire wanted to take it on, but it wasn't a prioritized concern. Most employees are from the same colleges in NC, so diversity in terms of thought process or geography was also not taken into consideration. The only diversity to speak of was the range of majors employees came from, which was compelling, but not enough to balance out the other lackings.

    Also, a word of caution to future interviewees--there is NO time between interviews. The day of, you will have back to back interviews. Literally back to back. If you need to use the bathroom, you will be taking away time from your next interview. There is also no lunch or breakfast or transportation provided; Red Ventures employees at the dinner admitted that the company was working to save costs.

    Interview Questions

What would you do if you had one employee who was slowing down the work and not meeting the vision of your company? How would you get the word out about your new company and how would it be different from other similar companies? (Essentially, they want to see how you think in this context).   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Red Ventures (Fort Mill, SC).

    Interview

    The interview process was very well organized.
    Step 1) Typical resume run through with HR rep - getting to know you, laid back
    Step 2) Case Interview with manager. Really cannot prepare for it, just testing your ability to think through concepts that you will see on a daily basis at the company
    Step 3) Was flown out to Charlotte, put up in a nice hotel and taken out the night before for dinner with the other candidates interviewing, and a few Red Ventures employees. The next morning, the interviewing process on site began and lasted about 5 hours. Started off with a tour of the facilities. Then, there were roughly 4-5 case studies with different RV employees testing different things. Again, cannot prepare for this.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Red Ventures (Fort Mill, SC) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I saw the job posting on my college job board and decided to apply after reading the summary provided, which was focused very heavily on the unique culture of the company. First, was a behavioral interview over the phone, which was pretty standard. After that, they had a more analytical interview over the phone in which they emailed you a sheet beforehand to be printed out and provided info during the interview. As they provided certain info, you had to compute the missing values and tell them to the interview. After that, you're called in to tour the "campus" and do a few more analytical exercises like in the previous phone interview. Overall, a very pleasant interview process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Red Ventures (Fort Mill, SC).

    Interview

    You will have 1 or 2 phone interviews and will been emailed a paper script if you've made it that far. Practice with someone as if they are a customer. Don't point out flaws in the script like grammar, morality etc. Be as aggressive and relentless as possible. Control the call, it "the customer" asks a question, answer it and then get control back again by asking your own question. They love saying, "it is easier to reign you back in than it is to toughen you up." Basically and sadly, if you feel like a jerk, you are doing it right.

    Interview Questions

    No negotiation. You are a cog in the wheel of a machine.
