    Interview Questions

    • I was given an excel spreadsheet of datapoints. I was asked to make a number of calculations based on the data available on the spreadsheet. The other part of the exam was to write a welcome email. They gave you a few points to convey in your email, but they were looking for style, grammar etc.   Answer Question

    Junior Software Engineer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I applied online. The interview process consisted of an initial phone screen and a technical phone screen. The recruiter was quick with feedback throughout the process. I was then asked to come into the office, where I met with several people one-on-one, and two others in a group session. The technical interviews were more about my experience and what I was interested in doing. I was not asked to demonstrate any technical skills or delve deeply into technologies I had worked on, yet was not given an offer because my technical skills were not strong enough. I was given little information about the logistics of the in-person interview in general. Any questions about the logistics were answered vaguely.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in May 2016.

    Interview

    You have to take an online test, you get two chances. The level was not too difficult, and I think most people will get it right on the 2nd try. You need to get 80 or above. Phone interview was a classic one. Tell me about yourself Q's and was short.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Definitely asked a lot of questions that required previous knowledge and research before hand. Spoke with the hr representative a few times over the phone, then set up an onsite interview. Overall, the individuals I spoke with were friendly and enthusiastic.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a response asking me to take the test within a week. The test wasnt coming through, so the HR lady was kind enough to resend and change my timings for the test. it was an excel test and a RFP test.
    I got a response the next day saying that I didnt get it, though I know the excel test was right. If this had to do with the RFP, I recommend that it be a part of training, rather than testing people on it, without any idea of the job and the company. I asked for feedback, and received none.

    I would say that they are professional, but by the looks on glassdoor from all the interviews and no offers, I would say they are window shopping, rather than looking to make a serious hire.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    I was first introduced to the company through a friend who was employed there. He put me in touch with the HR manager, with whom I then had a couple of phone interviews with. After this, they invited me into the office for a round of 1:1 interviews where they asked me about my resume, my experience with digital marketing, and why I was interested in digital offering.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    Initial test with math/verbal questions given. 30 questions in one hour, kinda tricky. Need an 80% to advance to next round. Many of the questions are deliberately set up to induce wrong answers. Especially with the math, watch out for the fill in the blanks and the specific way the question asks you to enter your answer (ie whole number, dollar amount, to the nearest tenth) If you read quickly you will miss.

    Luckily you get two chances with the test.

    Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in July 2011.

    Interview

    This is probably one of the more unprofessional recruitment processes I have seen in a while. I applied online through LinkedIn. With in a day or so, I was contacted via email about taking a skills test. The skills test was scheduled. They email you the documents and give you an hour to complete it. Two things about this test. First, it is a joke and a waste of everyone's time. However, what was frustrating about it is the email clearly said to ask her any questions. I did have a question. I asked the person who sent me the documents...I never heard back from her. Great.

    Anyway, I did the calculations and wrote the client letter. I send it in...gee, an email confirmation would be nice. Nothing. OK, this place is starting to get annoying.

    A week later I received an email saying I passed the test, and they wanted to bring me in for an interview...in three weeks. OK, I guess I can wait three weeks. What's the big deal right? I figured at this point, even though I have yet to have a phone conversation or really any conversation other than scheduling tests and interviews with someone, that I would be meeting with non-HR people.

    Wrong again. I meant with this wholly unprepared and incompetent in-house HR person. She seemed very uninterested in finding out about me. She made me wait in their cramped, non-AC office for about 20 minutes doing God knows what. When she finally did meet with me it was a very brief interview and could barely be classified as a screening interview. It would have saved everyone a ton of time if she had just done it over the phone. More than once, I had to ask her questions in multiple times, finally breaking it down in the simplest terms possible (kind of like Dr. Hibbard to Homer Simpson) before she understood what I was asking her. She definitely does not have enough knowledge of the field to be recruiting people.

    Anyway, a week later I got an email that said they went with a more qualified candidate, which is a joke. I got the impression looking around the office, they went with the cheaper candidate--not to brag, but I have seven-years experience and a master's degree in the field.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rise Interactive (Chicago, IL) in August 2011.

    Interview

    I applied for the position online through craigslist. I received a prompt response and was asked to schedule a time to take a 1 hour skills test. The test had three parts: 1) filling out missing parts of conversion rate and acquisition rate formulas; 2) deciding how to allocate a budgeted amount of money to 6 search engines; and 3) writing an introduction email to a client.

    The test was straightforward and I was able to finish it within an hour. When I followed up a couple days after completing the test, the HR Assistant told me I did well on the test and would be contacting me soon for an interview.

    Later that day, I received a rejection email. I followed up with the HR Assistant, and she said that that was a mistake and she would be contacting me for an interview.

    The HR Assistant emailed me to schedule an interview for the Internet Marketing Consultant position--I had applied for the Account Executive position. When questioned about this, the HR Assistant told me I would have to discuss that with the internal recruiter.

    Because I also had an interest in the Internet Marketing Consultant position, I decided to prepare for the interview as if I was applying for that position instead of the Account Executive position. Halfway through my interview, I realized that I was being interviewed for the Account Executive position.

    The whole process was unorganized and unprofessional. On top of that, the interviewer kept cutting me off mid-sentence when I was asking questions and made the whole interview seemed rushed. The process did not make me feel confident in the company or its potential. If they are this unorganized with their recruits, how do they treat their clients?
