    Digital Marketing Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at arvato AG.

    Interview

    Applied online and the recruiter got back to me pretty quickly. Had a good first interview and she said she wanted me to meet with the hiring manager. It took 4 emails and 2.5 weeks to get a response saying, "I'll try to find an update." I followed up again 2-3 more times before hearing that the Technical Account Manager position was filled. That isn't what I interviewed for or applied for. I tried emailing twice to get a response to make sure she didn't have the wrong job. Never heard back.

    Answer your emails. That was just terrible service and leaves me not waiting to work for a company like that.

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at arvato AG (Sacramento, CA) in December 2008.

    Interview

    I initially submitted my resume through careerbuilder online. I was contacted for an interview within a couple of days. During the interview, which was with the manager of the location, I felt that I answered all the questions honestly. Communication between us was good. We agreed that I was fully qualified for the position and she would contact me by the end of the week. I did not hear from her by Monday so I called and left at least three voicemail messages over a period of four days. She finally called me back to let me know she had chosen someone else.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at arvato AG (Lisbon (Portugal)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I only had the Excel test. I will try to describe the test. I would have loved to have an interview as I could truly shine there I think. I really think just blocking people from interviewing just because of a small Excel test is a big glassdoor.

    Interview Questions

    • The test was about Pivot Tables (2 questions), then one question about doing SUMIFS, then one about grouping data wit MATCH INDEX or VLOOKUP   1 Answer

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at arvato AG (Slough, Berkshire, South East England, England (UK)) in February 2016.

    Interview

    1st Interview online video - responding to four basic questions - Invited for next interview by telephone.
    2nd Interview - At HQ in Slough, UK with an HR specialist and a Client Manager. Asked to prepare and make a 20 min presentation followed by standard interview questions for approx 20 minutes. Everything was recorded on video. Invited for next interview by telephone.
    3rd Interview - Asked not to prepared anything as this would be just a 'chat' with people from the client organisation. The client is BMW. On arrival had a meeting with the other candidates and shown to a large room where we were introduced to seven people. ( 3 from Arvato and 4 from BMW) plus 4 other candidates for the job. All candidates invited to a separate room together and called out for a 20 minute interview with a panel. Later given a written brief to prepare a TEAM presentation on how we would plan to train 240 people over the next 6 weeks.

    After the 3rd interview, they announced to all candidates ''We will be in contact with you in a few days.''. 14 days later and I have still not had any contact from the company, so I just assume it is a NO. I sent an email, but received a standard online response.

    Human Resources & Payroll Business Process Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Swansea, Wales (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at arvato AG (Swansea, Wales (UK)) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Initially everything was great, the company sought me out for the role and were happy to wait for me to return from my holiday to arrange the interview.

    The first interview went well and was really positive however unfortunately that's when it all started to go wrong.

    I was promised a second interview the following week to chat to some other members of the team and I was given the impression this was just a mere formality however not only did this take several weeks to arrange (and required a number of chases from me before I finally got an update on the date and time) but when it was finally arranged it left me even more unclear about who the role would be reporting too and when a decision would eventually be made.

    Feedback emailed to me after the second interview mentioned a 'concern' that I did not have experience in a particular area that was not even listed on the job description or mentioned at the first interview and had only come up in what felt like an afterthought during the second interview. The email also advised that a decision needed to be made about whether to take someone on who required 'training' in this particular area however several weeks later I have had no update and still no decision despite yet again chasing for an answer.

    The whole experience has done nothing to assure me that this is an organisation that I want to work for and I just feel that they have strung me along for the last 3 months.
