Advice to Management
Step in the shoes of your employees and their customers and gain a perspective from that vantage point. Understand all the issues our customers experience before you change something.
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Thought Equity (Denver, CO) in October 2012.
Originally applied online through the company website. Roughly a week later I was called by a senior account manager. The initial call served as a brief phone interviewed but lasted less than 10 min as she felt I was qualified for an in-person interview.
The following week I came in for the more formal interview and met with the senior account manager. She asked me a series of questions and our time lasted about 30 minutes. She was really impressed by knowledge of the company to the point where she brought in the director of sales to meet me. We spoke again for about a 30 minutes, commented on my insight of the company, asked who else I was interviewing with, and when what was my personal time line/desire to start working.
Within their promised time line I was informed two weeks later that I didn't receive the position despite (in her words) being so knowledgable about T3Media and possessing a drive to succeed. After both team members had commented on how good of a potential fit I would had been they cited I did not meet their undefined "specific criteria."
Never in my entire professional career was I so far off as reading how well an interview went. I really wish I could have had a third-party person in there with me to see their body language, expressions, to my responses to validate I wasn't imagining the positive aspects.
