    Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Employee in United States
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. I interviewed at HireRight (United States)


    Applied and was contacted within days from the recruiter. She was kind, called often, and always followed up. Post the recruiter screening call, I had three 30-45 minute Zoom calls with the hiring manager and two long-standing team members. Red flag 1: the manager had some sideways remarks about one of those team members during the interview process. Red flag 2: an interview with "that" team member showed she didn't understand the discipline.
    After the four Zoom calls, I was asked to present an agenda the CMO had created. I specifically asked and spoke to the recruiter & hiring manager about the agenda as it 1) wasn't marketing based and 2) some of it was flat out looking for free work. It was modified to remove the free work portion. However, the nonmarketing topic stayed and was confirmed by the hiring manager.
    The presentation interview started with the CMO being rude to me. She fawned over the male in the zoom call with several compliments. Note: she said nothing about the hiring manager (female) and "that" person was not on the call. I presented the agenda, and she said - that is wrong. The hiring manager on the phone didn't say a word. I had at least three interactions about the agenda to confirm it was correct. At this point, we skipped part of the agenda (that I had worked on for at least 2 hours) to my marketing section. Immediately, the CMO scolded me for picking an older campaign (over three years old). I tried to explain why I chose it - it was a national campaign (well known) and had several points that showed process, skill set variety, and I wrote it. The CMO trashed it. No one else spoke.
    At this point, I knew that this was beyond red flag 3-10. The culture was shown to me in numerous ways. And the ways were not favorable.
    At the end of the call, I still wrote my thank you & called the recruiter to let her know the agenda was incorrect (to let other interviewees know), and I was no longer interested in HireRight. The first time I had pulled myself out of a job interview ring.
    Advice to HireRight: People stay and leave jobs because of their managers and culture. Being criticized and having team members talk about others during interviews is an issue.
