    Email Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spiceworks.

    Interview

    The entire interview process took about six weeks. I had two phone interviews before being asked to complete a marketing assignment for a mock e-mail, which consisted of multiple parts.

    After that, I was invited for an interview at the office. I met with four different people one-on-one and was asked pretty standard questions, but nothing very specific about actual e-mail marketing. The in-person interview was two hours long. Everyone was really nice, though, and I was pretty sure I aced it due to the positive feedback I got.

    The hiring manager told me she would contact me by the end of the week with a final decision. I waited anxiously all week and heard nothing. I e-mailed her Friday afternoon and didn't hear back until Monday morning, when I was told I didn't get the job due to lack of experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Spiceworks (Austin, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process was very short for me. I must say that the email that I received to let me know that I was not selected was very polite, and of course said that they would keep me in mind.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Spiceworks (Austin, TX).

    Interview

    They were basically not hiring data scientists, but recruiting them and having them be a regular developer, which is what they really needed. I wish they had been upfront about that. I spent most of the time talking to a data scientist, but then realizing they really just needed someone to write javascript.

    Senior Digital Designer Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Spiceworks (Austin, TX) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Spiceworks recruiter reached out to me via LinkedIn - told me I looked like the ideal candidate and set up a phone interview. Had a great 30-minute conversation with her where she again affirmed me and my qualifications for the job and asked me to email her with my availabilities to speak with the Design Manager for the next round. We set up that conversation for the next day at 4pm. I prepared all day for this phone interview. He never called. I got stood up. I then emailed the recruiter for an explanation - where she responded with surprised concern. She then e-mailed me the next day saying that the Manager was OOO that day (?) and that they were going to fill the position with someone internally, and that that was news to her. I then saw that same exact position still being posted on LinkedIn, so I was stood up AND lied to by Spiceworks. Honesty goes a long way with me and I think others should be aware that this company has no problem with lying.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5+ months. I interviewed at Spiceworks (Austin, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    They left me hanging on an interview for 4 weeks. I checked in and they left me hanging for another 2 weeks (as they were considering multiple candidates?). It's been 4 months and I still haven't received a 1:1 interview.

    The one and only reason I care enough to mention something here is that I turned down 2 great offers for a chance to work with some old colleagues. Jokes on me.

    After a pre-screen with a recruiter I was set up to talk with the manager of the group that I applied to. The interview was about an hour and it consisted of the interviewer talking about the product, company culture, the location and more stuff of that nature for about 40 minutes. After that I was asked about me and my resume. The recruiter went through my resume asking about each position I had and what I learned from them.
