    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Campbell Ewald (Detroit, MI) in March 2015.

    Interview

    The entire process took a week. I had a phone interview, followed by a formal interview two days later. I interviewed with 3 different individuals, each representing a different "branch" of the company.

    After discussing my skills and what salary I expected, I never heard back since. It would be courteous to at least be told that they job went to someone else.

    Interview Questions

    • Salary seemed to be of a concern to them. Each of the 3 people I interviewed with frequently brought it up.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Campbell Ewald (Warren, MI).

    Interview

    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

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Campbell Ewald (Warren, MI) in November 2013.

    Interview

    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

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Campbell Ewald in April 2012.

    Interview

    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
