Horrible Experience Interview

Horrible Experience
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Digitas.

Interview Details – I applied for a Senior QA Analyst position in Dec of 2012 and Digitas’ IT recruiter contacted soon after. I did a preliminary phone screening and a few days later I was invited for a F2F interview with the QA manager, associate QA Director and the VP of Technology.

When I arrived at Digitas’ location in NY, the person I was supposed to meet wasn't available, but her assistant quickly ushered me to the interview room. The office was pretty much what one would expect from such a “reputable” organization. The interview process was pretty straightforward. Most of the questions were pretty standard.

Exactly two hours after my F2F interview, the recruiter called me and told me the interview went well and the team wanted to make me an offer. I was pretty happy about this, but soon after the nightmare began.

The recruiter and I discussed company's benefits and what not, but he didn't put anything in writing. I requested the offer in writing, two weeks went by and I didn't hear back from him. Finally, he called me again to discuss compensation. Once again, I insisted that the offer be put in writing; eventually he sent me a contract with a top salary of $80k.

Honestly, I didn't know how to counter such a lowball so, I asked the recruiter to google the salary range for a Sr. QA Analyst with 10+ years of experience in NY. As usual, he called me and upped the offer to $92k. Once again, I asked for the offer in writing and received and email a few days later saying that the management cannot meet my salary request. This was the last time I heard from him.

I wish I had looked up Digitas before I wasted my time and energy dealing with them. I really hope future candidates see this review and make their decisions wisely.

Interview Question – Most of the questions were pretty standard technical and SDLC questions.   View Answer

Media Supervisor Interview

Media Supervisor

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at Digitas.

Interview Details – The questions asked of me were pretty expected -- no curve balls. I was asked to describe a recent recommendation that I made to the client, and to describe my rationale. Other than that, standard questions regarding my media and supervising skill set.

Interview Question – Again, no curve balls. The interviewer was clearly just interested in understanding my skills and personality.   Answer Question

Manager, Project Management Interview

Manager, Project Management

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Digitas in August 2011.

Interview Details – Applied online. This was my second time applying online... the first time was a year or two before and for a different position.
* initial phone screening with HR: 30 to 45 minutes, basic questions about my PM experience. * in-person interview: 2-3 hours, met with 3-5 people from the team I was to work for (lead PM, PM, Tech team)
* Offer extended within a week.

--

At the manager level, I participate in interviewing new hires for the PM capability. Often times, though there is a rec open, you shouldn't expect to interview for a specific team per se. Because of this, the interview may not be very streamlined or give you a great sense of what the team culture /experience would be like. I was lucky in that I met with the team I was hired to immediately work with.

Interview Question – no case study. basic PM questions. Asked about my comfortability working with technology.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I did not negotiate... but that doesn't mean you shouldn't!
