Executive Assistant Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied through a staffing agency and the process took a day - interviewed at Daymon Worldwide in March 2014.
Interview Details – Interviewed with the Senior Director of Human Resources and one HR recruiter. Both were very nice and made me feel comfortable during the interview. The company, role, and expectations for the position were discussed. Past jobs and experience listed on the resume were also addressed. Overall, it was a good interview experience.

Senior Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Daymon Worldwide in January 2013.
Interview Details – Phone interview about 1 month with the staff recruiter in CA after initial application. (about 20 min) Group interview with a director and the hiring manager about a week later, about an hour and 15 min. Took about 2 weeks before I was told I was not being considered.
Pros: The interviewers were friendly and the corporate culture seems to be conducive to its employees.
Cons: I was told up front that in order to move up I would need to be open to relocation.
Both of the managers answered their cell phones during the interview, which to me is a little unprofessional.

Human Resources Generalist Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through other source and the process took 3 months - interviewed at Daymon Worldwide.
Interview Details – Interview process was rather long (granted it was over holidays) but for me it was 2.5 month period.
Got to 6th interview (they even flew me to their Corp in Stanford, CT) and did not have the decency to follow-up (I emailed them) to let me know I didn't land the job. Very poor and not professional, in my opinion.
To be honest, if they don't have the courtesy to follow up with candidates (especially who are that far into process), I don't want to be a part of their team.
Interview Question – Tell me about a time that you had to "steer" a superior back on track (or subject) during an important meeting. Answer Question
Intern Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Daymon Worldwide in March 2012.
Interview Details – Responded to job post with email and resume along with samples of my current work per their request. They emailed back shortly after to set up the interview, wich took place in their main Rochester office. The interview consisted of 2 individuals from the Daymon team and myself. I was asked to bring in samples of my work, I chose to show my work digital format wich they were fine with. A lot of the questions asked pertained more to my skill sets and how I felt these skills would help with the growth of the company. The 2 individuals from the Daymon team also went into detail about the work that happens at that specific location and detailed specifics about the job functions. Overall it was a very warming atmosphere and the interview went along quite well.
Once I accepted the job offer however the process of getting me an actual start date seemed rather lengthly in process, taking about 4 weeks.
