    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I interviewed with an HR representative and we had a 30 minute interview. At the end she told me that there were no positions available and that I reach out a significant period later. So I did and followed up with her. She emailed me back with positions available and applied. She emailed me to schedule something and never responded. I emailed her at least five times in the time span of 3 months.

    As a HR representative at a highly respected firm, I am utterly shocked at how unprofessional the HR representative is. It's one to say that there aren't any emails, but another to just completely not respond. Very unprofessional HR at such a great company which is unfortunate.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Edelman.

    Interview

    I was invited to a "mixer" for the enrichment program. There was a panel with current employees and then an hour to mingle with the employees and ask them questions about the program. It was kind of awkward because they did not ask us any questions, but left it open for us to brag about ourselves or ask them questions about Edelman.

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Edelman.

    Interview

    The process felt long, after each interview I would wait about a week to hear back. Initial phone screen was followed by an in person interview with a VP and SVP which was engaging and very good. This was then followed with another in person interview with mid level people which was generic and dull. I was also asked to come in for an interview on the same day which was odd. They also sent me a rejection email by mistake.

    Reasons for Declining

    Slow response meant that I had another offer in hand by the time they got round to making me an offer. Just felt too slow and bureaucratic.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Edelman in April 2015.

    Interview

    I applied for this position in Austin there was immediate need so they got back in touch fairly quick. I was contacted by HR from the Atlanta office who emailed me and asked if I was interested and set it up for me to speak with two members from the digital team. Originally we were supposed to speak over Skype but we ended up talking over the phone because of technical difficulty. A lot of the interview questions were about my knowledge of digital media and experience and I was asked to go in deeper detail on the different positions listed on my resume.
