    Marketing Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Cincinnati, OH
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Empower Media (Cincinnati, OH) in July 2016.

    Interview

    I applied for this position online and received an email three weeks later to schedule a telephone interview. The call was scheduled for 60 minutes; I cut the call short and withdrew myself from consideration about halfway through.

    The "Talent Finder" was nearly 10 minutes late in calling and neither apologized for nor acknowledged her tardiness. The interview itself consisted mostly of standard, high-level telephone interview questions interspersed with 30-45 seconds of awkward dead air while the Talent Finder took notes.

    I ended the call when the Talent Finder insisted upon collecting my full salary history in order to fully assess my candidacy and "justify" an appropriate salary should I ultimately receive a job offer. In explaining why this data is relevant (it's not) the Talent Finder disclosed that Empower tracks the salary data it collects from job applicants in an internal database it uses to assess/re-center the salaries of its own employees.

    Aside from the fact that applicants' target salary, not salary history, is what's relevant, mining or harvesting personal data from job applicants - who often feel pressured into answering ANY question asked by interviewers - is a pretty disingenuous business practice.
