Vice President/Director Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
Accepted Offer
Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Digitas (Boston, MA) in February 2015.

Interview

Fast paced but fun 30 minute interviews with a few different individuals. Casual but smart questions and dialogue. The focus was really on understanding how you work, and whether you would be a good fit with the organization and culture. They weren't selling the position hard, but it was clear that they were enthusiastic about the team and that kind of sold itself. I would not describe the interview(s) as easy, or easy to prepare for, but I think it felt very fair and, ultimately, enjoyable.

Interview Questions

  • Mostly behavioral questions, asking for examples of leadership and managing teams, resolving conflict.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 6+ weeks. I interviewed at Digitas (New York, NY) in March 2010.

    Interview

    Digitas conducts multiple rounds of phone interviews and on-site interviews. The interviewers usually meet afterwards as a team to share their findings and then to vote up or down on the candidate. Often this results in the candidate being brought in for a final interview round with the senior leader of the division before a final hiring commitment is made.

    Interview Questions

    • Articulate your vision for how you will grow this role in specific ways that will help grow the company.   1 Answer

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Digitas in January 2010.

    Interview

    Disorganized. Unpredictable. Changing variables throughout the experience. Good to come prepared and ready to ask tough questions. Don't be surprised if you're interviewing for one client and then get assigned another client. Go with the flow. Dark circles under all employee eyes. Some employees suggested I may want to consider working for another client within the agency or for another sister agency altogether. Offices were creative and comfortable. Food was eaten by interviewers during the interview as if they had no time to eat before/after the session. Interviewed with 23 different people over a period of five separate visits.

    Interview Questions

    • After already answering why do I want to work at the company, being asked a second time, why do I really want to work there?   Answer Question
    • Long days and late nights were involved, so was I prepared to be spending more time at the office versus with my family?   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    No room for negotiation. Take it or leave it.
