    Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Effingham, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Midland States Bank (Effingham, IL) in May 2016.


    I initially started as an intern before being hired on full-time. The first two steps of the interview process consisted of a phone call and written assessment to test my technical and creative writing skills. The phone call with HR was very informative about the role and Midland States Bank as a whole. The call asked questions about my goals and experience to see if I would fit with the company's culture, and vice versa. A face-to-face interview with the marketing manger and director followed, which consisted of questions about my past work experience, work ethic, and ability to work with a diverse team with diverse responsibilities.
