Agency RX Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Planner Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Agency RX.
Interview Details – Sent resume, got email to set up some interviews. Takes a few weeks to get interviews as scheduling can be difficult with their staff seeming to frequently travel.
Interview schedule changed at last moment for me but that was okay. Had a few interviews. Everyone asked good questions, were good listeners and the only downside was for all "the good," something went awry. Usually you can sense when something isn't "good" (rhythms are off, ask questions that I can't answer, slight disconnects in conversation, etc.) but here it was all pretty fluid but never got a call back.
Interview Question – Can't remember difficult or unexpected questions. Not saying I was so prepared or that they lob you softballs - but honestly nothing stood out as either difficult or expected given the job description. Answer Question
Copywriter Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
The process took 5 days - interviewed at Agency RX in April 2010.
Interview Details – The people I met with were very nice. Most of the time was spent talking about my college experiences and what seemed like a personality check. I was asked about my tastes in music, books, fim and things like that. Obviously a lot of time was spent going through my portfolio and discussing all the concepts.
Medical Copy Editor Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Agency RX in November 2010.
Interview Details – I had an initial informational phone conversation, then the in-office interview consisted of meeting with the head recruiter and the head of the department. After that, I took a fairly involved editing/proofreading skills test, which is standard for this type of position. I heard back within 1 week. Everyone I met during the interview was very nice and the offices were well-kept. A good experience overall
Interview Question – Are you now actively looking for work and how long have you been looking? Answer Question
Account Coordinator Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Agency RX in September 2008.
Interview Details – Very casually interviewing with the SVP for the workflow department.
Interview Question – Typical questions like: why do you want this position, how does your experience apply to this role, what are you strengths/weaknesses, etc. Answer Question
Negotiation Details – When I interviewed nothing was negotiable (salary, vacation days, 60 day review), but I would recommend negotiating because there has been a change in management since I interviewed.
