    Senior Audience Development Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at POPSUGAR (New York, NY) in January 2020.

    Interview

    It is now clear that I was used for free work. After reviewing all of the interview Glassdoor posts, past applicant experiences are similar to mine.

    The hiring manager reached out to me directly, regarding the Sr. Audience Development Manager (Contract) role at Skincare.com / Makeup.com. I did not apply to the job.

    I had a great interview with the hiring manager. HR reached out to schedule calls with the hiring team. However, it was interrupted by a request to submit free work beforehand. I sent in a lengthy assignment and was immediately ghosted quickly after that by the hiring manager.

    Very unethical, and a terrible reflection on the company and hiring manager who requested it.
