    Copywriter Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Spartan Race in June 2017.

    Interview

    Was recruited via LinkedIn, did a screening call with HR, and then a 30-minute phone interview with the VP of Brand Marketing. From there, they scheduled me for 2.5 hours of in-person interviews at the office. Then the day before the interviews, recruiter said he had to reschedule for next week, and could I please do a written assignment? The in-person interview ended up being blown off completely, and they asked me to do a lot of free work for them before they would consider an in-person meeting, because of a "change in process." So I did the assignment, which took me 6+ hours, and then sent it in. Never heard back from anyone at Spartan Race, even after a few weeks of silence and me following up via email and LinkedIn. Super rude.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Spartan Race (Boston, MA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I was informed that they were considering me for this position after retaining my resume the last time I applied for this position. Initial contact was made via email. We made plans for a phone interview for the following day.

    The phone interview was fairly basic. No "gotcha!" questions, nothing unfair.

    Was ultimately rejected via email.

    Race Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Spartan Race in October 2015.

    Interview

    Sat with the Head of Production and some other Production personnel. It was a very comfortable conversation, thoughtful questions and a good balance between me learning about the company and them learning about me.

    Interview Questions

    • Most important questions for them were around my previous experience. They clearly know what responsibilities the role has, and what qualities/qualifications make for a successful Race Director. All questions were geared towards assessing my fit for this role.   Answer Question

    Director of Email Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Spartan Race (Boston, MA) in July 2018.

    Interview

    Stay away. Believe Glassdoor, I wish I had.

    Bottom line: No screening call + no challenge during interviews = it was a beauty contest.

    In my case, I failed because I'm 58 and probably 20 lbs overweight.

    Is this the company you want to work for?

    Associate Creative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Spartan Race.

    Interview

    I was contracted by their recruiter and had two phone interviews. After the second, they asked me to do a massive test assignment of almost 100 pieces. To say the least, the request was far outside industry norms (if not strange and suspicious) and I declined to participate.

    International Procurement Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spartan Race.

    Interview

    It was very quick interview process. Position with 5+ years experience the salary being offered was only slightly higher than what is offered to new grads in this area. Was frustrated with how the process was handled and multiple people involved with incorrect information being communicated between them. I had some concerns going into the interview having read some negative employee reviews, which were confirmed through my experience.
