    Senior CopyWriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Warren, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warren, MI
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Campbell Ewald.

    Interview Details

    Very aggressive about talking you down on salary. We had agreed to an amount and then they came back and offered me $10,000 less. I turned the job down, and then 24 hours later they called and said they had suddenly found the funds to pay me what they said they would.

    User Experience Architect Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Warren, MI
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Warren, MI
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Campbell Ewald in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I met with 3 people. The first two were fine, asking appropriate questions and providing the necessary insight. I thought things were going fine until I met with the last person. She began asking jaded and strange questions and creating an uncomfortable atmosphere for the interview.

    The experience with the last person was so bad that I'm assuming that's the reason I was later told that they decided to go in a different direction. Then, the same day I received that news, they posted a feeler to fill a UX position. Very, very disingenuous — all due to misrepresentation of an interviewer who appeared to have an agenda that wasn't in the company's best interest and a recruiter that was willing to lie.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Campbell Ewald in April 2012.

    Interview Details

    I was first offered an on-campus interview set-up by a professor at my institution, which was pretty straight forward. It only lasted about 20 minutes and the interviewer asked the straight-forward questions, i.e. why am I pursuing advertising, which department(s) am I most interested in, what makes me qualified, etc.

    After that first interview, I was offered a second-round, group interview, several months later. Again, no surprises, but it is a bit awkward. They sit you down in front of 3 to 4 agency managers with a group of other candidates and are asked the same questions down the line.

    Interview Questions
    • Why do you want to work in advertising? Sounds easy, but when you have to listen to 3 other candidates answer the question and then have to say something original on the fly, it's more challenging than you might think.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Campbell Ewald in February 2011.

    Interview Details

    I left my name and contact information on a drop-box area of their website and received a call from an HR representative a few weeks later about an available experiential marketing position. Communications were nice and pleasant, however it wasn't revealed entirely up front that this would be a temporary job only. The actual interview was conducted as a group where a few suits described the job in full and asked minimal questions in a very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Following that I was promptly called back and offered the position.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral - interviewed at Campbell Ewald in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    Got brought into a conference room with 2 of the team members, who would eventually be my managers, and got asked a series of standard interview questions. Nothing was out of the ordinary, but they did make me feel very comfortable when they got towards the end of the interview and we started to discuss local sports teams and other non-business topics.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing out of the ordinary - just standard marketing questions. I don't think that there was even a business case question.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    As an intern, it was a "take it or leave it" kind of offer.

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Campbell Ewald in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Talked to the recruiter and hiring manager via phone. Seemed to get positive response and was told they would like me to talk with other team members. Haven't heard anything since and it's been about two weeks. I've followed up with the recruiter and haven't gotten a response. Guess they extended an offer to someone else and don't want to tell me.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Campbell Ewald in January 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted via phone to set up a phone interview with a recruiter, then they sent an e-mail to confirm the time, day and the person I would be contacted by. I completed the phone interview and was told that after phone interviews they would choose a selected number of people to come in for an interview in person. I never heard back from anyone via phone or e-mail after that.
