    I have been working at HOMER full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The management is first rate and really cares about employees. I’ve seen situations unfold with employees where other managers would have thrown in the towel, but this team works through the problem. They also invest into development of employees.

    The teamwork here really stands out. There is definitely a common mission and employees find ways to work together despite pressing deadlines.

    Great mission and vision — I want to go to work every morning.

    Growth — It’s nice to see the company clear huge milestones.

    Small — still small enough where every employees contribution really matters.

    Location is solid (flatiron)

    Cons

    Standard start up issues:
    The office needs more conference rooms, more space
    Feels like we don’t have enough people to handle the growth frequently

    Advice to Management

    More all hands meetings
    Let’s get enough quite space so we can better focus on deep/creative work

    Social Media Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed at HOMER (New York, NY) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Phone screening with marketing manager asking you if you are familiar with the brand and their social media channels and previous work experience , followed by 1 on 1 interview with same manager.

    Interview Questions

    • They will ask you many question about how you would improve their marketing plan and request ideas for very specific types of social media campaigns. They would also ask you what kind of brands you would conduct benchmark research on and in what manner would you use the social media advertising platforms, they asked me to be as detailed as possible answering these. Really felt like they called me in to get ideas out of me as we never discussed the day to day duties or other job quationes an interviewer would typically ask.   Answer Question
