    Product Marketing Manager Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at OwnLocal.

    Interview

    Very unprofessional hiring process. Applied online and was emailed an assignment without even a phone screen. Completed the assignment and received an email a few days later to notify me that I wasn't a good fit for the role. I asked to provide specific feedback twice and was given this lame answer: "We don't provide individual feedback during our hiring process". Seriously? I had doubts applying in the first place after reading some reviews about the company. Please don't waste your time interviewing with this company.
