Interviewed at 24/7 Real Media

Interview Details – I had a very similar experience to the reviews posted before me. This was a very unprofessional and disorganized hiring processes. I met with atleast 2-3 managers as well as upper management. I discussed salary in greater lengths than I had with past interviews where I had actually received the job, and I had to constantly follow up with HR to discuss next steps. I was strung around for not just weeks, but months, and they never even had the courtesy to let me know I did not recieve the job.

I'm now at a well respected agency, and the differences in the interviewing processes were significantly diffferent. The interview process says a lot about a company. Think twice about the Company if the interview is unprofessional and disorganized.

Account Management Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at 24/7 Real Media in June 2012.

Interview Details – HR had found my resume on Monster.com and thought I was a good fit for 2 possible roles at 24/7. I came in for my first interview and met with the HR rep, everything went smoothly and then onto the meeting with who would potentially be my boss. We had a pretty informal interview but things went really well also. I followed up with thank you emails, and got a request to come back the following week to meet with the SVP of ad ops. Odd, since I would be working with ad ops but not IN ad ops (so why would this person have to give his approval) but I set up the interview and go. That interview also went well. I followed up with more thank you emails, and HR asks me about salary. Awesome right? Nope. I tell her what I make and what I am looking for, letting her know that I am flexible (I was eager to leave my current position) and I heard nothing back. Seriously, nothing. It was like going on 2 great dates with a guy, he asks if I like steak and which steakhouses I like best, and then drops off the face of the earth. Note to 24/7: it is INCREDIBLY RUDE to make someone interview TWICE and never give them the heads up (at the very least!) that the position has been filled. I will be sending everyone I know who stinks over to them, and tell everyone who is decent at their job to stay far away from this place. If you dont have simple manners, what do you have?

Account Executive Interview

Account Executive
New York, NY

The process took 1 week - interviewed at 24/7 Real Media in May 2010.

Interview Details – Extremely casual and the most unprofessional interview I have ever experienced. You don't even have to submit a cover letter. I was hardly asked any questions as I mostly listened to rants on how great the company is. The questions were the most reductive set of interview questions I was ever asked. No behavioral questions. It felt more like a sales pitch than an interview and I realize now that they are always desperately trying to mass hire due to high turn over.

Interview Question – What other opportunities are you looking at?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – There was no room for offer negotiation. They gave me my salary and my vacation days and never asked if I had any questions. I emailed asking if I could have additional vacation days because my previous employer offered me more days and the recruiter said she would get back to me and never did.

Affiliate/Account Management Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

The process took 1 week - interviewed at 24/7 Real Media in December 2011.

Interview Details – Even though I read a lot of negative reviews about this place, I decided give an interview a shot. I first had a phone interview with one of the company's internal recruiters, who mentioned I would be very qualified for two different positions within the company, so she set me up with a time to meet a few of the the employees I would potentially work with.

I went into the office at my scheduled time, met with the recruiter once more, and then with the person who was a manager on the account management team, whom I had a very positive experience with. I then met with two people on the affiliate team for about 45 minutes. I was walked out and it was mentioned to me that I would be contacted for a second interview. I thought the entire process went extremely well and was excited to hear back from them.

I sent a follow up email expressing my interest in working for the company and heard nothing from the internal recruiter, who was supposed to be my main point of contact. Within the next few weeks I followed up with several calls and emails, none of which were returned.

I understand companies get caught up with paperwork and sometimes interview processes get put on the back burner, but this was downright unprofessional. Whether a person is qualified for the position (which I certainly was) or not, it is the courteous to inform the candidate one way or the other of the company's decision.

Needless to say, I never heard back from 24/7, and the experience as a whole has left a bad taste in my mouth. The negative reviews seem to hold true, and I do not recommend interviewing for a company that sets such a bad precedent for itself, nor one who treats it's potential employees with such a blatant lack of respect.
