    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Cossette Communication in March 2013.

    The interview was a simple chat with two managers. There's not a lot of technical questions (if any), but that mean a lot of your colleague have bad or insufficient knowledge set for their posts. Overall there's a few good colleague - and if you're learning, it'll be hard to find a a good mentor to help you evolve.

    Account Coordinator (Entry Level) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON (Canada)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Cossette Communication in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    I applied on their website. Heard back a few days later, they told to come in for a group interview. When arriving for the interview I am in their front reception area with 20 (that’s right 20) other people. They bring all 20 of us up to a big boardroom at the same time, and have us write our names on paper to fold and face them. Then the HR person, and two other employees tell us about the company, and then they write 5 questions on this board and have us one by one answer them to the group. 1) Introduce yourselves? 2) Why advertising? 3) Education? 4) Your experience? 5) Favorite ad? Then that was the end of round one, whoever made it to round two would be emailed at some point later that day.

    I made it to round two, and came back the next day. There I sat in the reception area with someone who was in my group interview the day before (I just thought I would mention that). I was given a quick tour of the building, than a 1:1 interview, then a 2:1 interview. The questions today were more in depth about qualifications and give examples of a time when you did something type questions. Then once the interview ended I never heard from them ever again! Not even a courtesy rejection email.

    ADVICE: If you want a chance at getting a job at an ad agency. Try to get an internship (unpaid) first. As that is something I did not have, and although I got pretty far in the interview process, it was the deciding factor that lost the job for me.

    Application Details

    The process took a weekinterviewed at Cossette Communication in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    I brought a portfolio along, but my interviewer didn't spend much time reviewing it. He was more interested in my experience, and what I wanted from a career in advertising. I had filled in a sheet with basic questions when I first came into the Cossette office, and we spent time reviewing my answers.
