    Global Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at YKK (New York, NY) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The interviewing process lasted about 1 month, due to scheduling conflicts. The first interview was in the NYC office with the 2 managers of the office and the HR manager via phone conference. The interview was very pleasant and the company has a nice feel to it. The questions seemed to be coming from a list that the HR person had in front of him, but other than that the interview didn't feel staged, overly stressful and was an occasion to get to know me and for me to get to know them.

    The second interview was purely tests. Approximately 2 weeks after the first round, they asked for me to come in and fill out a timed test for math and logic skills and then an un-timed personality test. This was somewhat confusing but I gave it my best shot. The company was very understanding of the time it took to complete the un-timed test.

    A few weeks later, the company offered me the position and I accepted. The company's hiring process seems to be filled exclusively through headhunters, so if there is a desire by a candidate to work for YKK, it is best to reach out to headhunters to see if they can arrange something.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at YKK in December 2016.

    Interview

    The company only goes through 3rd party recruiters, so one of them will call you about the position. There are many things they are misled about (company car perk, vacation/sick time, amount of actual travel, and sometimes the bonus structure). First there is a personality test. Next is a resume screen by the HR manager over the phone, takes about 20-30 minutes. Then there was an in person interview with the office manager. All the questions focused on my background and about how I accomplished certain things, very standard.
