    Community Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Houston, TX
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Bell Partners (Houston, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    very quick & simple . Basic questions . Almost uncomfortable due to the level of knowledge held by the Regional manager. She was not very credible or experienced which made me also second guess if I wanted to work for her.
