At Wrights, I came into a newly created position where the company wanted to hire someone from outside to bring a fresh perspective to the marketing mix. There was a lady at the company who thought she should have been promoted to the position due to her experience there. She insisted on interviewing me along with the hiring manager and had to give her approval for me to be hired.
