    Media Manager Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Accuen.

    Interview

    I had applied online with a resume and was contacted by what I assumed to be HR within a day to schedule a 30 minute phone interview. On the day of the phone interview, I still had not heard from the assumed HR interviewer at 15 minutes past the scheduled time so I called them to see if the time still worked. I reached the interviewer fairly quickly at which point they told me that they were finishing up some things and that they were "getting around to calling me in a little bit." As I am currently still employed and had to do this call in secret (which they knew about), I found the lack of punctuality a little frustrating.

    They then proceeded to talk for the remaining time about the position, but at no time really asked me any questions about my experience (current or former) which felt odd. At about five minutes left, they then asked if I thought they would happen to have my resume. Again, I got an odd feeling that they would not bring up that they did not have my resume in front of them until the end of the phone interview. I replied that I had sent it over with my application, but if they need it again I would be happy to send. Honestly, I got the feeling that they may be testing me on something that was reading between the lines, but there really was no way of knowing.

    I was then told that I was a finalist for the position and asked if I had a web cam. Assuming that this meant a Skype/FaceTime interview with the hiring manager, I said yes. As it turns out, the invitation was for a "video interview": a one-sided interaction where I answer recorded questions on a webcam with no follow-up questions or interaction with a live person.

    At this time, I do not know if I will be continuing with the hiring process as I found the recruitment tactics to not be at the level of professionalism that I would have expected for a company that is connected to such a large, respected agency. It is a shame because from the research I had done on the company online, it otherwise seems like a great place to take your career. However, based on how the company is represented by the interviewer, I did not get a great feeling.
