    Entretien de Associate Marketing Manager

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Maryland Heights, MO (États-Unis)
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative
    Entretien facile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris +2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Elsevier (Maryland Heights, MO (États-Unis)).

    Entretien

    Extremely long process with severe lack of communication throughout. I applied for a position and was invited for a phone interview a month later. Then I had an in person interview and it took a few weeks and me reaching out to them multiple times to find out they ended up hired internally. I respect a company that hires from within, but not a company who doesn’t communicate that to an external candidate who is waiting for a response. It’s a lack of common courtesy and I was disappointed to experience that after an otherwise ok interview process.

    Interview by panel. They gathered 13 people in a room and started firing out technical questions. It was kinda fun. Nothing special stuck out. It was just the team and two managers being casual.

    Entretien

    The day after I applied online for the position, I received an email from one of their Talent Acquisition managers. We agreed on a time for the first round phone interview. The completion of an online logic exam was required before the in-person interview. He was extremely pleasant and the interview went well (it was not technical, more about me, my studies, etc). He gave me two days to choose from for an in-person interview day at the Philly office. The interview day was long, but exciting. It was about 14 other candidates. We were given a topic for oral presentations about a week before the in-person interview. The day involved oral presentations, lunch, a tour, multiple interviews (at least 3 and the option to stay for optional interviews afterwards, none were group interviews), and some general conversation. Everyone was very welcoming. Some of the interviews were technical, some weren't. The next day, I got the call with the job offer.

    Entretien

    The interview was a 3.5 hour long ordeal, involving questions and a live programming test. The manager that interviewed me was informative and seemed like he would be good to work for, The engineer that tested me was amazing, he had a great personality, was knowledgeable, and he would be a great team mate. When telling the hiring manager about another offer, instead of trying to talk up Elsevier, they spent the whole time trashing the other company. It made my decision easy. This could be a great opportunity for the right person.

    3 steps - phone screen (behavioral), phone screen (technical), In-person (both technical and behavioral). Overall a good experience and not so formal. When I was interviewing they were on hiring spree and in middle of releases so I was made to wait for in-person after I had arrived, but that wasn't too bad.

    Entretien de Multimedia Producer

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé via une recommandation d'un employé. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien à Elsevier (Maryland Heights, MO (États-Unis)) en janvier 2014.

    Entretien

    Elsevier reached out to me out of the blue. I had done contract work for them several years earlier and they were looking to fill a position similar to what I had done. I am currently employed but agreed to a phone interview with their recruiter out of New York. The recruiter then scheduled me to interview in person with the multimedia department. The Director of this department is the one who originally contacted me. I interviewed with two individual hiring managers, one of which I had previously worked with. The interview went well and I was told several times that I was a very strong candidate and they were glad their boss had reached out to me. At the interview conclusion I was told they would be in contact shortly to set up a time for me to meet with their boss. Again, that was who originally contacted me. A week went by with no word so I followed up. The response was that things were moving slower than expected but they would be in touch soon. Another week went by with nothing. I sent another follow up with no response. Yet another week went by. I sent another email and again no response. Three weeks later and multiple attempts to contact them, I finally received an email from the recruiter in New York that simply said......Oh, sorry for the delay in responding. We have offered the position to someone else. Thanks for your time.... I attempted to call the person who originally reached out to me about for feedback about what happened and nothing. No response. No phone call, email or even a simple acknowledgment to my messages. It was very frustrating and disappointing to say the least. Extremely rude and unprofessional. They contacted me, not the other way around.
