    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Rubio's Restaurants (San Diego, CA) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Expect to meet with a lot of people -- pretty much the entire marketing team -- over the course of the interview process. Everyone seemed very nice and dedicated to their jobs. Most of the questions were very straightforward. Asking about my current position and how it related to the position I was applying for. I liked what I learned about the company, definitely familiarize yourself with their existing campaigns as much as possible and just their product line in general. The only thing that concerned me about them was that I got the impression the company wasn't doing so hot. I think money was a concern and one of the employees told me that they hadn't given raises in 5 years. Kind or strange and unprofessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Rubio's Restaurants (Rancho Cordova, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I came dressed in more casual clothing, only a long-sleeve collared shirt and black slacks (no tie or belt). The manager came out a couple minutes after I arrived and started the interview. There were about 10-15 medium to hard questions (more in-depth ones that require thought), and I was offered a job immediately after.

    Technical Support Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Carlsbad, CA

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Rubio's Restaurants (Carlsbad, CA) in April 2013.

    Interview

    The process was fairly long. I initially applied for the position two to four weeks before I received a call from HR about the position. The process started with a phone screen from HR that asked basic questions about my resume. Afterwards, I was moved onto the first interview with two IT staff members; one of which would be the IT manager and my main contact for the rest of the hiring process. During the first interview, we went over my resume and it was their opportunity to find out a little of my education background and delved into details of my resume and work history. After the first interview, I was asked to take a personality test at the end of the week and was subsequently asked, after completion of the test, to come back the following week for a set of interviews.

    The second set of interviews was the most interesting process I've had to date. I was set up with three sequential meetings with members of the IT department. The first was with the VP of IT, the second was with a group that consisted of a Tier 2 Tech, an IT Developer, and a Jr Systems Admin, and the last round was with a Systems Admin and a Tech Support Analyst. Within the second set of interviews, each group asked for more details about my resume and I had the opportunity to ask questions about the job position and their perspective of the workplace. In addition, they had the chance to feel out if I would be a fit for their culture and workplace.

    Overall, I felt the interview process was pleasant and fairly simple to deal with. My only issue was the lack of communication after the group interviews. I was personally told that I would receive word back from them the next week and I never heard from them again. Of course, I attempted to contact them twice; the first attempt was at the end of the following week of my second visit, and the second was at the end of the second week. I didn't bother to follow up after that since the answer was apparent. This wasn't a unique experience in my job search, but I was expecting at least a rejection letter for the amount of time put in between myself and the people I interviewed with.
