    Advertising Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Milwaukee, WI
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Roundy's Supermarkets (Milwaukee, WI) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Three interview process. First interview is phone interview with HR, second with a direct supervisor, third interview with department head. I only did the first two interviews. Phone interview was very traditional ("tell me about XYZ job," etc.) The first In-person interview was scheduled for two weeks after the phone interview. Two days before the in-person interview, HR called and gave me some specific questions to prepare for and other talking points. I really appreciated this as it helped me prepare efficiently. The in-person interview lasted over an hour and was very formulaic. The interviewer explained that every candidate is asked the same questions so that they have fair evaluations. They asked about high and low points of high school, high and low points of college, and strengths and weaknesses for every job listed on my resume. They also asked about study habits during school, who my role models were, and other questions in that same vein. Was notified that I was not moving to the final interview three weeks after the in-person interview. Whole process took two months.

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Roundy's Supermarkets (Milwaukee, WI) in November 2011.

    Interview

    Recruiter called me about possible job opportunity and application. After an initial phone screen a group/panel interview date was set. Interview lasted around 90 minutes, until one of the interviewers received an emergency email/phone call.
    Interview focused more on my college and high school lifestyle, GPA and former teachers/managers than my previous position.
    I often got the feeling by body movements that I was wasting their time with my answers, yet they kept asking the same questions. What does my high school life have to do with how I work on a daily basis, especially if I have been out of high school for over 15 years?
    They suggested carpools to save money, since parking seems to be at a minimum. And asked if I wanted to meet those I could possibly carpool with...
    A second interview was set up and cancelled the evening before due to a last minute meeting.
    3 days later I received an email stating that they were no longer going to be interviewing me and would be going another direction with other candidates.
