    Social Media Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Diego, CA

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Red Door Interactive (San Diego, CA) in September 2015.

    Interview

    5 major thing to do/keep in mind when interviewing with this tight-knit agency:

    1) Be careful who you interview with here –– Some of their recruiters DO NOT communicate well, forget you, lead you on, and don't follow up. Unfortunately I had a bad recruiter and HR process here. The total process lasted over 10 weeks, only to find out during week 11 (yup, 11 weeks later) that there were 2 candidates being interviewed the entire time and the other guy was chosen. They had forgotten I applied, called, told that I was "good but didn't fit what they were looking for" and "of course would consider me for other roles." If you apply and receive a call, ask for the recruiter's name and do a quick web search on that recruiter to see if she's gotten any bad press.
    2) Follow up as much as you can, DO NOT wait past a week if you don't hear anything back. –– During the first 5 weeks, the recruiter I was working with was very unprofessional, flaking out on the first 4 (yes 4) phone interviews we had scheduled. Finally, when she called and caught me off guard and I decided to take her call and do an impromptu interview. She was overly nice, flighty, dismissive, and aloof. I wish I had a different recruiter because I might have had a very different process and hiring success. I might even be employed there, if it weren't for that recruiter.
    3) Do your research/homework on their clients, who they work with, what kind of communication styles they use and campaigns they're running BEFORE you interview. They will ask you random questions during the interview to see if you know who they are. (Just a heads up, they have a bit of a snobby air about them (they are good at what they do so I guess I can't blame them), but it would behoove you to research ahead and make sure you have a pulse on their business).
    4) Make friends with someone who works there –– this helped me tremendously during the whole process and I would't have the insight, savviness or gusto I have now without this guy. He was a wonderful asset to work with and I only wish I could have called him a coworker. Do this and it will get your apple. moved to the top of the stack and keep you in the know during the entire hiring process.
    5) Look out for emails from various people within their recruiting/HR team. It seems like they're a little disorganized and don't communicate well amongst each other –– you often get repeat questions, emails and have to start over on basic points of interest.
