    Visual Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Austin, TX) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Received a call from a hiring manager that was asked about my experience and made me questions about their website.
    Interviewer was aggressive; I would even say rude.
    I have done many interviews (face to face and over the phone) and this was the shortest and most harsh. In the end I felt like she called me just because she had to (maybe she needed to reach a number).
    Before almost hanging up on me, she said that they were not looking for somone with <my experience>, although by email she had said "what a great resume".
    Huh. Why calling me, then?

    Marketing Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process at RetailMeNot was amazing! I applied online after seeing a job posting on the corporate site. I was contacted by a recruiter a couple days later to set up a phone interview. We discussed my background and the basic responsibilities of the position. The recruiter was very well-versed in everything RetailMeNot and made me feel very comfortable about moving forward. After this call, I was asked to speak directly with the hiring manager via phone. The call lasted approximately 30 minutes and was very conversational. I dove a little deeper into my background and experience. The hiring manager seemed generally interested in what I had to say. Following this call, I was asked to come in for a half-day of 1-on-1 interviews with members of the RetailMeNot team. While this may seem daunting, the time actually went by very quick. I met with about 5 people, including the hiring manager whom I had spoken to a couple days prior. Each employee was deeply passionate for RetailMeNot and what I had to offer the company. I can't say enough about how nice everyone was. Following the half day of interviews, I was given a tour of the office (the campus is super cool btw). I was told they would be following up with me regarding next steps. And they actually did! They called a couple days later with an offer. After a little negotiation, I signed on the dotted line. When you combine the top-notch perks/benefits with people that are truly passionate about what they do, it's a win-win. Thank you RetailMeNot for a great recruiting experience and best of luck to those interested in applying!

    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RetailMeNot (Austin, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    The in-person interview was very long as you interview with everyone on the team. However, everyone is so great that the time flew by quickly and it was pretty fun. It just got a bit repetitive talking to everyone about the same things over and over since each person interviews individually.

    Interview Questions

    • There are questions about your personality and about your experience. If you don't like the people you interview with, don't join the team. But I really liked everyone and I've enjoyed working here ever since.   Answer Question
