    Social Media Designer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at The Jel Sert Company (West Chicago, IL) in Jun 2019


    While the interview process took longer than a month, everyone was extremely nice and exchanged great conversations about the role and the company.

    I started with a phone interview with the HR manager which was a pretty basic questionnaire about me and my experience. I was invited for an in-person interview 3 weeks later which was two separate interviews; one with a different HR assistant & another with the Social Media Manager.

    I was then given a small Instagram project to complete for one of their brands which I was to present in my 2nd in-person interview to the Social Media Manager and the Senior Brand Manager. I was also emailed a multiple-choice, timed questionnaire they called an "Achievers Assessment" which had multiple sections and took no longer than 50 minutes. During my 2nd in-person interview, which was about a week after the first, I interviewed with the same HR manager who conducted my phone interview for a total of 3 separate interviews that day.

    The hiring process took a little longer due to my current busy schedule and both of the HR employees went on vacation during the start of the interview process.

    What was a project that made you feel accomplished?
