    Brand Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Meridian, ID
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MarkMonitor (Meridian, ID).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email from a recruiter just a couple of days later to set up a phone interview.
    The phone interview happened the next day.
    The recruiter and I had a great conversation - she asked what I wanted to make, and she wanted to make sure that I understood that the job paid $47K and that it was firm. I was OK with that and told her I wanted to move forward. She told me that she would give my information to the hiring manager and that she had some pull in persuading them who to interview and that she was sure they would want to meet me.
    Later that day she sent me an Excel document with some testing: attached is the data set that we spoke about during the interview. With this data set, please provide a one page summary separate from the excel document drawing an overall conclusion of the data. This one page summary/conclusion can consist of paragraph summaries, bullet points, charts, graphs, and/or trend lines. It’s truly up to you how you would like to tell the “story.” We do a lot of large data analysis and we feel a test data set like this will be a great way for you to show off your analytical abilities.
    I completed this and sent it back to her and 4 days later received an email to set up the on-site interview which was scheduled for 3 days later.
    And here's where it all went south .... the in-person interview. I had read another review about this company intimating, or maybe flat-out stating, that they do not hire old people. And I have to agree with that assessment. My interview was with 5 young gentlemen, average age of 27 I would say .... and I am mid 40s. There were no structured questions. It seemed like as soon as we got in to the room they made a determination that I was too old and they decided to wing it and not really ask anything of substance and get me out of there as soon as they could. They mentioned they want to bring someone on who fits in with their culture. If they are looking for 27 year-old men who all look like they stepped out of a J Crew catalog, then no, I'm not going to fit in with them.
    They mentioned they had several openings and that they had the position open all the time. I felt good about my experience and knowledge and intelligence, but knew that they did not want me personally.
    I never heard back from them, so I emailed the recruiter. Who took 2 weeks to reply with the no thanks email.
    Shortly thereafter the position was posted online again. So I reached out to the recruiter and asked if I could be considered again. She said that it was technically filled. So why is it posted?
    My impression of this company is that they don't hire people over the age of 40. Or maybe just females of that age, I'm not sure. But it was obvious that once they saw me they were not interested even though I had a great conversation with the recruiter, and had all the KSAs to excel in this position.
