    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at SMITH (Seattle, WA).

    Interview

    I applied online and in about a week I was set up with a phone screen. It went well. Very basic screening questions, just asking about my previous experience and accomplishments.

    I was then set up with a 1:1 in-person interview with my potential supervisor. This lasted 1 hour. The potential supervisor asked questions about previous experience with tools, campaigns, collaboration and working with others, etc. The usual stuff. Nothing really stood out to me. I was impressed by the amount of their technical knowledge for their particular role. He was friendly and professional.

    A week later I was then set up with a phone call with another manager who couldn't make it into the office. This also lasted about 1 hour. Again, the usual questions but with some more specific tool-based questions. The individual was friendly and professional as well and seemed very impressed by the level of my expertise.

    I was then again invited back to the office for yet another interview with my potential supervisor and 2 others. My second interview with my potential supervisor lasted a little bit less than 1 hour and was more or less a repeat of our previous discussion as well as more of discussion about who else I would be meeting with and the company. I later interviewed for about 30 minutes with a potential senior coworker and another potential peer. Both of these went well and again the usual questions about experience and previous campaigns, examples, and results were asked. Both of them were also friendly and professional.

    To my surprise, after these two in-person interview sessions so far, I was then invited to present a 30-minute presentation to my potential supervisor and peers and more senior-level staff. As nice and professional as everyone had been so far, I was extremely irked about this presentation as it was (1) a time sink in preparation, (2) about one of their current clients and thus I would be providing them with my own professional insights they could potentially benefit from--for free--and (3) I felt that the interview process had been drawn out long enough at this point.

    I heard back about a week later they moved forward with another candidate. The recruiter left a polite and professional voice mail notifying me of this.
