    Field Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I was interviewing remotely, so the interview process consisted of 3 phone calls - a phone screen with the recruiter, phone interview with the hiring manager, and phone interview with two sales managers. The questions revolved around my experience working with sales teams, planning and coordinating sales events, and general marketing experience. Nothing out of the ordinary.

    I learned that the role itself is mainly sales support either coordinating sales events for the sales team or sending out prospect emails on behalf of the sales team. This is not a corporate marketing role (you will not be directly involved in social media, website, etc. but rather working closely with the sales team).

    The contact with the recruiter went well enough for the first few weeks, but dropped off after the third phone interview. Even though I was told that I was a "top candidate" and that they would be making a decision within a week or two after my last interview, I never heard back. I only learned that I didn't get the job by checking my Jobvite job candidate account. I would've at the very least appreciated a rejection email. The job is still posted on their website though, so it appears at though they are still interviewing other candidates. I would not recommend interviewing with this company - they clearly don't take their interview process seriously.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process started with an initial phone screen interview where I was asked about my experience and was given a description bout the next steps that included: another phone screen interview over the phone, a technical interview over the phone and a week project to finish. If all passed, an on-site interview would take place to discuss the project overall and how will I fit in the company.

    The second phone screen interview did not take place since the HR Manager forgot about it. After scheduling it for the second time, we talked for less then 3 minutes as all he wanted to know if I have any additional questions.

    The phone technical interview did not take place on time as the engineer was busy with another issue on hand. He called me back over an hour later. After a brief introduction and a detail description about the position, he asked me 3 technical questions which I have answered fully.

    After the phone technical interview , I have not received any further communication from the company. The whole process took 4 weeks and was handled very unprofessionally.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    I submitted my application on a Thursday & had a scheduled phone interview by Monday for later that week. I studied up on the company & knew it was somewhere I absolutely wanted to work. The HR rep who interviewed me on the phone was incredibly helpful, clarified that the job would be a good fit for me. He made himself available for me to reach out to if I had questions or wanted to follow up. I had an onsite interview with four managers a week after my phone interview. In total between the application & offer the total time it took was two & a half weeks. Everyone from Trustwave I spoke to was very friendly & open to answering questions.

    Recruiter Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I applied and quickly was contacted for a first round interview with the recruiting team manager. I did well, and then had a conversation with a recruiting program manager. That conversation was fantastic, and we were able to connect on past experiences. It was definitely challenging, and the questions asked were very thorough. I felt that I was able to really explain all faucets of my previous recruiting experience. I would highly recommend Trustwave. I had a final round interview onsite, but I ended up accepting an offer with a tight deadline. I would have been very happy to continue. The role sounded challenging (which is great), but with quite a lot of support.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL) in December 2016.

    Interview

    After I have submitted my resume, it took the company a month to call me back. The phone interview lasted an hour. The guy asked specific technical questions about architecture patterns, Java, etc. After that, they invited me to do a programming assignment. They sent me requirements in PDF format. It was three pages of text and output examples. The explanation of the task was not clear, but the task was relatively simple.

    After reviewing my code, the hiring manager sent me an email claiming that my code did not pass the test because the program does not satisfy the provided requirements. I have tested the program again, and I could not reproduce any of the issues mentioned in the email. I sent a note back and asked to explain the reason for failing my code. I never received any response.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Trustwave (Chicago, IL) in October 2016.

    Interview

    I applied directly on the Trustwave website and received an email from one of their internal recruiters within 48 hours about setting up the first phone screen with him. The call with him took about an hour where he was asking about my experience, why sales, and my career goals.

    After that we scheduled an onsite interview where I met with 2 of the Sales Managers for roughly 2 hours. In the beginning, they drilled on me on how much I knew about Trustwave's history and their products. After that they asked me what I did in my previous role and what I thought I could bring to the table.

    I wrote a Thank You letter that night and sent it to the recruiter to forward to the managers I had interviewed with. He contacted me the next day to extend a verbal offer.
