    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spencer Gifts (Fort Worth, TX).

    Interview

    Received a phone call a couple weeks after applying online to set up an interview the next day. The interview, itself, was only about 15-20 minutes long. I was asked pretty standard questions, such as my availability and related work experience. They called my references, so make sure you have good ones. Pretty simple stuff.

    Marketing Assistant Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spencer Gifts.

    Interview

    I did not even choose to interview with this company. I applied to different positions and have a master's degree with experience. Even though I applied for a marketing position, they were pushing me to come in for a temporary position starting in a week paying $12 an hour. $12 isn't even minimum wage. The woman on the phone was arrogant and started asking about my personal life. And these are the people you hire?? Sorry. I'm not taking a crappy position for pennies when I graduated with my master's degree. They obviously did not want to hire through a temp agency. When I asked why I am not interviewing for the full-time position she told me I did not have the credentials for it... yet I have them for a temporary marketing one?? And yes, I did have the credentials for it. I have a large amount of experience along with my master's degree.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Spencer Gifts.

    Interview

    As with any interview, it helps to know the history of the company. Know your trade and come ready with questions. One thing that I would recommend to the company however, is have a better explanation of the jobs posted and that when a candidate interviews, that job posted matches the job discussed. There seems to be a bit of displacement on what they’re looking for versus whom they’re attracting.
