    Social Media Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in White Sulphur Springs, WV
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Greenbrier (White Sulphur Springs, WV) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The position was for a SEO Speicalist and social media specialist. I was interviewed by two members from the marketing team and the Greenbrier Resort.....for a programming SEO position?? when I asked what hardware I would be using they replied with "what do you mean by hardware" LOL. When I asked about message design they replied with incoherent babbling about how they are looking to turn the hotel around. I have 6+ years of SEO experience and they couldent even tell me about the architecture of their site! What a waste of time. The laughable part is they took about three weeks to get back to me and did it through an email that went to my junk mail, to a position I would have turned down anyway. This position was founded in the misconceptions provided by gifted speakers in some conferences that presents social media as a bandaid for internal disorganization, overwhelmed underpaid workers, lack of bottom line objectives and seemingly third grade educated inexperienced marketers. Youd think that a billionair investing in a hotel would at bare minimum have a website that is opitmized! This just shows why the hotel has gone bankrupt and is on the verge of a repeat. My advice, dont worry about the interview questions, save your time and enjoy your day rather than spending the day talking to a bunch of idiots.

    Oh yeah, the only question asked in the interview, yes the only one was "do you know photoshop" LOL for a SEO position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 7+ months. I interviewed at The Greenbrier (White Sulphur Springs, WV) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Long and slow. A recuiter sold me on the property to begin with, I then had a phone screening with HR. Form there I had an interview with the hiring manager for the department. This process took about 2 months. After the phone interviews I was asked to visit the property for a few days and interview, all expenses paid including my travel expenses (contingent on being hired). Onsite interview was a gauntlet format with each department head 1st, then the team I would be working directly with, and finally the property General Manager. After the onsite I recieved an offer 3 months later.
