    Marketing Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Zumiez (Lynnwood, WA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Was called for phone screening by hiring manager, then in person interview scheduled for following week. Separately interviewed with 4 different people, 2 from marketing department, 2 from higher organizational level. One interviewer stopped in the middle of the interview to tell me that they "did not like" a person who was walking by the window of the interview room.

    Took a skills test on Excel, left the interview feeling good, but was not given a time-frame for when to expect an answer.

    NEVER HEARD BACK ONE WAY OR ANOTHER. This I found to be very UNPROFESSIONAL, a simple email is common courtesy. I even reached out twice to the hiring manager who contacted me and got no response. Very displeased with the overall experience.

    Overall environment seemed chill, everyone was dressed casually and it seemed like a fun place to work.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Zumiez.

    Interview

    Long interview process, lunch followed by two or three rounds of more standard interviews. Interviews were one on one or with 2-3 interviewers. The role was way more based on events than I anticipated. Even though I have worked a bunch in action sports, in skiing, it was not at all a cultural fit.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zumiez (Emeryville, CA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Outdoor interview near the actual store location. Approximately 10 people (including myself) in the group interview I participated in. The interview is split into three parts, I only participated in the first part. Included a "relay race" where we had to ask the interviewee 5 open-ended questions and keep a conversation going therein. Then we had to write down open-ended questions that we would ask customers to help drive a sale. Then we were asked to describe something (one item) we were wearing in accordance with Zumiez' "6 Cs" (Cost, Color, Cut, Content, Care, Coordinate) product knowledge pointers. Then we were given an opportunity to ask any questions we had.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Zumiez (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process was very laidback and honestly a great experience. The 2 assistant managers wanted all of us to be as loud and fun and authentic as possible which I appreciated and found really cool. A lot of reviews on here mention stuff like relay races, coming up with a song, or other weird things but we weren't asked to do any of that. I really wanted this job more than anything, but unfortunately wasn't chosen to fill a position. However I have nothing negative to say about them!

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Zumiez.

    Interview

    First a 30 minute phone interview, followed by an onsite interview of approximately 2 hours. I felt really good about the phone interview and three individual/group onsite interviews, but probably fell short interviewing with the controller. Knew I was more than qualified for the position, but didn't sell myself well enough..They gave my references a very rigorous set of questions to answer and some of my references were a bit annoyed with some of the questioning. As a side note, they contacted EVERY reference I had listed.
