    Marketing Program Manager Interview

    Average Interview
    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 months. I interviewed at SmarterTravel (Boston, MA) in Sep 2019

    Interview

    By far the longest and most tedious process I've gone through - started with 30 min. initial convo with HR, which took 2 weeks to facilitate as they ended up changing the time 10 mins. after the start time and then scheduled to meet the following week, but somehow she didn't have it on her calendar entirely. Fast forward, I finally connect with her and she wants to help set a call up with the hiring manager before she leaves for vacation, in which one day as I'm eating lunch outdoors I randomly received a call from the hiring manager. Anyways, eventually I have the 30 min. call with the manager, in which they schedule me in for in person rounds. This ends up being 4 hrs of interviewing with 7 different people who I would be working with/for. Unfortunately for me, this was also scheduled with a "lunch" session in which I'm not exactly sure what the expectation was for me to be able to eat and speak at the same time. Kindly enough they did provide lunch that given day since they have free lunches on Thursdays, but I ended up only being able to take 1 bite in between interviews and had to throw the rest out. A week post interview, HR followed up to say they were still going through candidates and that they should know by the following week. It is now the following week and I haven't heard any updates since with my follow up.
