    Graphic Designer/Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Crispin Porter.

    Interview Details

    I met with a total of six people. While the interviewers were generally distracted and running behind schedule, the focus seemed to be on being a good cultural fit. Given the crazy, demanding work schedule, it seemed people cared more about your personality than your skills and experience. I was impressed that I interviewed with fairly senior managers.

    Studio Artist Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Crispin Porter in January 2015.

    Interview Details

    I applied in the fall for a studio artist position and heard back about a month later from a recruiter. I had a phone call with the recruiter to see if I was the right fit for CP+B. Then the office was closed for 2 weeks during the holidays and then heard back from the recruiter setting up a phone call with a senior in the department I would be working in. Then we set up a half day interview with 5 to 6 people, we scheduled the interview with very short notice. I met with each person for about 30 minutes each but at one point I was sitting there by myself for 30 minutes while everyone was running to meetings and trying to stay on task. I met with people I would be working closely with or under in the department. The company culture looks great minus the long crazy hours that can happen often. Most of the people I met with were very nice and friendly even though you feel a bit intimidated when you first start talking to them.

    Negotiation Details
    Salary was somewhat negotiable. Don't worry about vacation days since those are very flexible and there are a ton of agency days off throughout the year.

    Interview Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took few days to have a phone interview.
    The interview was pretty standard but woman who interviewed me is VERY rude. Not a good impression with the company at all. She replied to my question with a question and talked in a condescending tone.

    It was the worst experience I have ever interviewed with HR.

    Video Producer Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Crispin Porter in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    My interview was a three step process:
    1. Recruiter phone interview
    2. Employee phone interview
    3. In house interview

    Interviewing is always a little bit nerve racking but I thought every interviewer made the situation really calm and normal. There weren't any crazy questions or things to throw you off.

    The In house interview was the most extensive. I met with 5 people... two Execs and three people currently holding the position I was interviewing for. The interviews were much more like conversations, getting to know each other. Everyone was very nice and very positive about the company. All in all it was a great experience

    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.
