    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Tommy Bahama in November 2016.

    Interview

    Two interviews. They both lasted about five minutes. Basic questions but I'm sure it was more of a personality interview than your normal interview. I researched TB before arriving to the first interview and it helped fill in some of the questions.

    Email Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Tommy Bahama (Seattle, WA) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Longer process, but professional. All in-person interviews were handled at their corporate headquarters in Seattle, WA. The building where their corporate headquarters is located is easy to find and parking wasn’t a problem in the parking garage there. There were two in-person rounds on top of the phone screen: The first with the immediate team members, then I was brought back for interviews with auxiliary members who work with the Email Marketing Specialist but aren’t directly tied to that role. Everyone I met was great and I never felt uncomfortable there at all. Overall the process from initial contact from the recruiter to the offer took a month.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions asked were typical of any mid to upper level interview for an email marketing specialist role. One key one that stands out was about the biggest challenge I'd had when it came to building or working with an email.   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    In the end I took another offer that I felt was a better fit for me based on office culture, interests, and growth opportunities.
