    Traffic Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Crispin Porter.

    Interview Details

    Submitted resume via website. Caught a call form HR within 1-2 days looking to set up screening interview. Had phone screen. Within 1-2 days, they scheduled a trip to Boulder. The next day, they scheduled a trip to Miami. I had an offer before leaving Miami. They are much more concerned with personality and how you'll fit in. Over the two interview days in Boulder and Miami, I interviewed with at least 12 people in the studio, account service, creative, and production departments. Each provided feedback and they decided based on that.

    Senior Interactive Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Crispin Porter in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Had several phone interviews with various leadership inside the technology world. Then was flown out for an all day interview, ended up talking to about 6 people. I was put up in a hotel and treated well the entire time out there. The interviews where both personality based and technical. I wasn't asked to do any direct programming instead it was general programming knowledge. If you don't know the answer to a question, then say you don't but also tell them how you would go about finding and ultimately solving the problem.

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    Quick and painless. All employers will try and low ball you on the first offer. Why would they pay more then they have to. But you have to be confident in your skills and ask for what you want. I would actually recommend asking for more then what you want. I ask for more by the amount they were under what I wanted. so if you want 75K and they have 65K counter with 85K.

    Also remember, it can't hurt to ask to include things when you are hired on.

    Account Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Crispin Porter in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    The process was pretty flawless. I was sought out by a recruiter on LinkedIn, had a phone interview the next day, and was flown out to Miami to interview within a week. The travel manager was so nice and booked all my flights and a lovely hotel. I got a basket full of goodies. I got a job offer the following day. The recruiter I dealt with in Miami was very attentive and answered all my emails at the drop of a hat-- weekends and evenings. Great attention, but this should've been my first warning about the work hours. If only my experience at this company matched my interview experience. Courting process is a great mask to put on the life of a sweatshop.

    Interview Questions
    • During the face-to-face interview process, I felt like most of it was about personality fit. The hardest part is the phone interview / screening process with HR.   Answer Question

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Application Details

    The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Crispin Porter in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I first got an email from them about 2 weeks before the internship would start; I had a phone interview later that week and then the rejection at the end.

    The woman who interviewed me was rude. I was rushed the whole time after she called me 15 minutes late. She also asked me if I knew if there was a difference between marketing and advertising...seriously.

    My advice: suck up. When they ask what the better ads are today, say all of theirs.

    Application Details

    The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Crispin Porter in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    The woman on the phone was very rude to me when I was asking her questions, like "How many hours do you work?" She replied to my question with a question, which i HATE. Overall she was snappy and condescending, which I cant respect. Not a good impression with the company at all.
