    Human Resources Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Columbia, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Vivid Marketing (Columbia, MD) in January 2013.

    Interview

    After I submitted my resume via CareerBuilder, the recruiter called me within 24 hours. I answered a few qualifying questions over the phone, and we set up an in-person interview. The recruiter was extremely polite, informative, and transparent. She answered all of my questions honestly. I came in for my scheduled interview, and I enjoyed the upbeat music playing in the lobby. I met with the hiring manager for about 20-30 minutes. She discussed the position in detail and reviewed my qualifications. After the interview was completed, I received a phone call that afternoon stating that the hiring manager was impressed with my preliminary interview performance and they would like to invite me back for a second interview so that I could shadow the current HR manager for a portion of the afternoon to make sure the position was a mutual fit. I loved what I saw! The hiring manager offered me the position on the spot, and I started the following week. Overall, it was a comprehensive, informative interview process that left me feeling informed and excited about beginning my new position with Vivid Marketing, Inc.!

    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Towson, MD
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Vivid Marketing (Towson, MD) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I applied online and was called in for a face-to-face interview. I was excited because I thought that this would be a real marketing position that was similar to an internship that I previously had. Unfortunately, they lie on their job description and I did not stay for the full interview. The position was a sales position in which you stand at a table in a big wholesale store such as Sam's Club and Costco and flag people down to sell them a product (e.g. skin care products).

    Account Representative Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Baltimore, MD
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Vivid Marketing (Baltimore, MD) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Company was very thorough with the interview process. I met with a hiring manager for roughly 30 min on the first day. They explained the clients they work with and what the rest of the interview process would look like. The questions were standard, but that's what I would expect for a entry level position.

    Entry Level Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MD
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Vivid Marketing (Columbia, MD) in May 2011.

    Interview

    There was a 3 step interview process. The first step was an initial interview with an attractive young woman named Chrysanthi. She was the president of the company; she gave information about the position and the company. The next step was an all day interview where I shadowed a sales rep named Lauren to see what it was like to work there. Finally, the 3rd step was a face to face interview with a manager named Brandon. Everyone treated me with the utmost respect. This company does excellent work because they help businesses reduce their energy costs.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer because of excessive traveling.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Vivid Marketing.

    Interview

    It was a positive experience. Standard formal interview, focuses allot on personal questions and some on past experience. The company structure will then be explained and you will have the opportunity to ask questions. Just go in with allot of confidence, be polite to the receptionist (they pay attention to this), and demonstrate general people/social skills as this is a very key facet of the position. Make eye contact and speak as clearly as possible.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Vivid Marketing (Columbia, MD) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It was a two part interview. The first they asked you the basic interview questions. The second interview was supposedly an "infield skills assessment". In actuality it was just a lunch with an employee and all I did was talk about my life with her. It was nothing too strenuous or rigorous and I doubt the screening process is that intense.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    The company just felt like a scam. It was a very weird set up and there are no real benefits that go with the job.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Vivid Marketing (Columbia, MD).

    Interview

    Shortest interview ever. Quick phone screen then set up 1:1 interview with hiring manager. The hiring manager looked extremely puzzled when I said I was applying in response to the job listing for the DC position. Can't blame him for the confusion as I found out there was no such thing. Next step would be to shadow a sales representative out in the field, which means standing in Walmart and selling Verizon Fios to the people.

    Marketing - Entry Level Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbia, MD
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Vivid Marketing (Columbia, MD) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Initially applied through a recruiter and was brought in a few days later for an in person interview. Interviewer was a higher up and fairly personable. He proceeded to tell me the ins and outs of the job. The job title seemed fairly misleading considering its more of an in store sales job, where you stand in big chain retailers (i.e. walmart, sams club, etc.) and sell customers walking in whatever product the client is requesting. At the time of my interview it was Verizon Fios.
    After the initial interview they then bring you in for a second in field interview where you get to go to said retailer and watch some of the team on the floor, they as well will ask you to sell to a customer as well in order to gauge your potential. Finally there's one last phone interview to answer any remaining questions you may have and gauge your interest in the job.
    Overall it was a very straight forward process and the team there really does seem like a nice bunch. However because I felt mislead about what the position really was for, as well as the unique work hours (10am-7pm, Wednesday-Sunday), I turned down the offer
