    Manager, Social Media, Content and Digital Marketing Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. I interviewed at Nickerson (Boston, MA).


    After reading numerous bad reviews I decided to interview there anyways because the job sounded interesting and like a good fit. People were pleasant in-person but you can tell it's a hot mess over there. They definitely lack professionalism and I could immediately see why they have an issue with hiring and retaining employees.
