Intern Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at DraftFCB.

Interview Details – Initially spoke to an HR representative at a college career fair. Was emailed by this person to schedule a phone interview, which went well. They asked the normal questions (your three best traits, favorite class, etc). Kept in semi-regular email contact as well, where I was assigned a (pretty difficult) assignment.

Interview Question – "What are your two most favorite and hated advertisements most recently seen?" Difficult because of all the options and the nuances of the answer.   Answer Question

Assistant Account Executive Interview

Assistant Account Executive

I applied through college or university and the process took 4 months - interviewed at DraftFCB.

Interview Details – Had an on campus interview. It was a pretty standard advertising interview, where I was asked for examples of both good and bad advertising campaigns, a walk through my resume, skills and experiences that exemplify why I'm a good fit, why Draft specifically, and why the position. Come prepared with your personality, your stories, and your smile!

Interview Question – Tell me three things about yourself that I wouldn't get from reading your resume.   Answer Question

Copywriter Interview

Copywriter

Interviewed at DraftFCB

Interview Details – Interview process wasn't terribly difficult. Although communication was at times lacking. But that doesn't seem to be anything new in the ad world. Could go weeks without contact with their creative recruiters...then suddenly interviewing...only to go weeks again with no contact or impression of a final outcome. Inside the building, everyone I met with was nice. Did the usual interview process of thirty minutes with this person and thirty minutes with that. Did find it interesting that I seemed to interview with several people who obviously weren't looking to hire. I believe I talked to eight people in one day. Maybe three of them were into the actual interview, the rest were simply going through the motions.

Interview Question – Nothing unexpected. They usual taking CD's through your work, etc.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – At the time, they weren't much for negotiating. It was basically a take it or leave it offer. If you don't want it, we'll find someone else.

Assistant Account Executive Interview

Assistant Account Executive
Chicago, IL

The process took a day - interviewed at DraftFCB in November 2011.

Interview Details – She was rude and looked down upon me even though iwas obviously smarter and more prepared than she thought i was. Her questions were simple: what's your favorite adds? Why DraftFCB? Why the school you go to? etc... Since I attend an IV, her questions were as though I was pretentious and couldn't answer the simple questions she told me about like Tell me about a time when...
