When did you have this interview?: Last Week

What steps were in the interview process? How far did you get? What do you think about the overall interview experience?

I thought these interviews were unnecessarily intense and the interviewers were not particularly friendly. I didn't feel that all the case questions did anything to assess my real skills, and were difficult and high pressure without much purpose. I also noticed a lack of transparency- everyone brushed over the email marketing aspect of the business and I didn't feel like I was getting the full picture of what my work would be. I had a standard phone screen with HR, followed by an hour-long interview with two interviewers including a case study question, and then followed by a series of three hour-long interviews with two interviewers each, two of which included case study questions. My advice to Cogo would be to make the interviews more relevant to the actual work, and to lighten up a bit.

What interview questions did they ask?

Four different case questions were asked
