I applied through other source and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at CRI in September 2010.
Interview Details – I first interviewed at a design company out in San Anselmo. He referred me to CRI which he had done work for that needed an in-house designer. I came in to interview with almost all of the executives once, and then once more as a closing interview.
Interview Question – Honestly it was, what do you think of Madmen, and what was my favorite thing about the show? I had been going on tons of interviews so all the normal general questions were a breeze, but I had never really watched Madmen yet, and because I came from an advertising school, I guess it was expected out of me to know more about the show. HAH! View Answer
Negotiation Details – Well because it was my first job out of school, I sort of failed in this aspect. I didn't negotiate. I offered a freelance rate, since I was hired on as contract for the first year. They upped that rate a bit, and once I was offered full time employment-ship I took the first salary offered. Again a lesson I had to learn myself.
