Associate Director - Strategy & Analysis Interview

Associate Director - Strategy & Analysis
Boston, MA

I applied online and the process took 5 days - interviewed at Digitas in May 2011.

Interview Question – If you had $10M, how would you invest in a marketing campaign   View Answer

Reason for Declining – Not the lifestyle I wanted- very much work long hours and then party with your coworkers after work.

Manager Interview

Manager
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 6 days - interviewed at Digitas in May 2009.

Interview Details – I got a call through the online application on career-builder(surprise!). Very quick process- phone interview followed by meeting with everyone possible on the team in next 2 days including one phone interview with potential manager- that is the way at Digitas. Once it was done, I had a final interview with the VP that was great. good discussion, same questions - i think to validate answers from all the individuals who interviewed. You can clearly see when they have an urgent requirement. They hire and fire both at same speed when work is done. So ensure you find out about the position and who all have worked before in the team on projects. You will get a clear sense/.

Interview Questions

  • On previous experience, handling a business problem   Answer Question
  • Asked question about the project they had and asked me to define the problem clearly and suggest a solution. Almost like a case study   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not much...but still some room. Do your research as much as possible people at the same level will have variation of 5-7K easily.

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Digitas in March 2011.

Interview Details – The interview process consisted of two 45 minute interviews with two people. The first interview was more relaxed, explanation of the job, why do you want to work for our company, etc. The second interview consisted of behavioral based questions, along with a puzzle-type question. Both interviews had a friendly feel to them and were very positive.

Executive Assistant Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY

I applied online and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Digitas in December 2009.

Interview Details – Process began by a Digitas recruiter phoning me to ask if I'd like to interview for the position. She set a date with me for a phone interview with her, which took place a couple days later. After the phone interview, I was set up to meet with 2 individuals in person, as well as 2 further phone interviews. From there I met with the person I ultimately would be reporting directly to. The day after my final interview, I received a call from the intitial recruiter offering me the job.

Analyst Strategy and Analysis Interview

Analyst Strategy and Analysis
Boston, MA

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Digitas in January 2011.

Interview Details – First I was given a phone interview. They called 45 mins late. They moved me on. I got another phone interview and they asked basic questions "can you tell me a time when you were a leader, when you did research, when you had trouble..etc". I was then flown out the next week for an person to person interview. I was asked on "case question" it was "how many barbershops are there in the U.S" I aced this. Even when the turned me down the recruiter commented on how well i did with this case. In all they flew me out early one morning and flew me back late that night and in the process I saw 4 people. All of them asked me the same types of questions "why digitas? what do you do in your free time? what is your biggest failure" Not real mind boggling questions. Also as a side note, they did pay for my flight to and from their office (which was nice) but make sure that you have cash on hand for the cab service. They had no one there waiting for me, I had to pay for my taxi service both ways, and I had never been to Boston before so I had no idea how much they would cost, or that Boston had about $8 in tolls from the airport alone...it was a surprise but luckily I had prepared.

Finally, the reason they gave for not hiring me was that I "didn't have enough experience" and that although the team loved me and thought I would be a nice addition they "didn't think I could hit the ground running". I was upset but at this point any feedback is nice to have.

Vice President/Director Interview

Vice President/Director
Philadelphia, PA

I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Digitas in November 2010.

Interview Details – I had two rounds of phone interviews prior to be flown across the county to meet with six people. The interview questions were fairly softball, with a few tough ones tossed in. I was told I would hear back within a few days. After five follow up emails, and three phone calls, I've never heard back from anyone. Given the level of the position I was interviewing, Digitas has been EXTREMELY unprofessional during this period. I've already given up on being offered a position. However, I thought the company would have at least the professional courtesy to let me know that I wasn't chosen for the position. A simple email would have been sufficient.
