Interview Question

Unspecified Senior Marketing Role Interview

-Factoria, WA


One member of the peer group asked me, "If your budget were $xx, how would you spend it?" I gave some very broad brushstrokes said asked, "what are your objectives?" and by what measure would you determine the success of the spend?" He was visibly agitated by my answer and without responding to my question, essentially forced me to make a guess and then immediately made it clear he disagreed. He was downright rude.

Please see above. He either was fishing for ideas or had no answer to my ask for clarification.

I'm curious why you didn't just answer the question as asked? The purpose of an interview is to directly answer questions, ask for clarification if you don't understand the question, but just answer it.
