    Marketing Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Newegg (City of Industry, CA).

    Interview

    Phone pre-interview with a recruiter to go over my resumé...calls me in to interview with a panel of 3 people the following week. I get there and check in with the receptionist who tells me that one person from my interview (the most senior person) would not be able to make it. Okay fine. So one guy comes down to get me and takes me to their conference room where we are met with another guy. He tells me a little bit about the company and the brand history...a bit about the scope of the position and what some of the responsibilities are...and then asks "Do you have any questions for us?"

    Didn't ask me to talk about my previous work experiences, how or why I think I'd be a good fit, career goals, nothing. Just if I had any questions for them. So I asked some.

    Q. "I noticed that you have quite a variety of products from computer cases to...rice cookers. Who is this brand's target market?"
    A. "Everyone."

    Q. "What is a typical product's ideal life cycle from sourcing to discontinuing? Where are your benchmarks for how much should be sold after the first quarter? When is this evaluated?"
    A. "It's case by case."

    Q. "What are your current marketing objectives and how would I be able to help in this position?"
    A. "Make more sales."

    The questions I asked were pretty specific and the responses I got were just general and dismissive. I was getting annoyed. Either they don't know how to conduct an interview or they didn't like me. Regardless, the whole thing was done after 20 minutes.

    The recruiter (in-house) followed up with me that same day asking me about it and told me he'd follow up with the hiring manager, who sounded surprised when I told him that she was the one who didn't make it to the interview. He left me a message to call him back, so I called him and left a message and haven't heard from him since.

    TL;DR
    Recruitment team - pretty good.
    Other dudes - get it together.
