    Digital Marketing Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Santa Monica, CA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Beachbody (Santa Monica, CA (US)) in September 2020.

    Interview

    First of all, I am not one to leave negative reviews for anything but this experience was one of a kind in the worst way. I was first denied the job and then ten days later received a text to do a phone interview. I found this incredibly odd and unprofessional but decided to give it a go. My phone interview started with an initial question asking if I could make "Banner Ads". I explained that all three of my recent positions relied heavily on graphic design and creative content and 2/3 required digital banner ads to be created for marketing purposes. The lady then asked if my most recent position had me creating banner ads. I told her that it did not but my other two positions did and all three required graphic design and content creation. I explained to her that creating a banner ad and creating an image that's not used as an ad requires the same skills outside of the fact that a banner ad will require specific sizing and measurements to match the platform where the ad will be placed.

    She responded saying that since my most recent job did not require the creation of banner ads, that she will be moving on with her search to fill this position. This was after ONE question. She claims she understood what I was saying but also told me she has no part in this department and she is just the hiring manager. Therefore, I was interviewed by someone with no experience or understanding of the department she was hiring for. That one question concluded the interview. I was not asked what programs I used or how I created digital ads from the other two jobs.

    With my application I provided a full online portfolio that featured many banner ads including ones that were featured on ESPN as well as local newspapers and public transit from a recent internship with Major League Baseball. I also explained this very clearly in my cover letter.

    This was the most unprofessional interview I've ever had and clearly speaks volumes about this company. Read the other recent interview reviews and you will see more of the same. It's a shame that someone who is eager to learn and has past experience can't proceed beyond a one question interview. Avoid.

    Technology is changing home workouts for the better

    It used to be that working out at home meant donning leg warmers and popping a Jane Fonda or Richard Simmons tape into the VCR. These days, though, technology has made the at-home exercise options seem endless. There are big-box gyms that bring personal trainers to you through apps.
