    Interaction Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online - interviewed at Huge.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of:
    Phone Screening with the Recruiter
    1-on-1 Interview with Director
    Design Challenge (take home and send to recruiter)
    Phone Screening with the Recruiter

    They were very unorganized and were not reliable in responding to emails, sometimes taking months at a time. Overall the experience was unprofessional.

    Also there was a lot of rescheduling and canceling of interviews last minute.

    Interview Questions
    • I do not remember the specific questions.

      However, the interviewer could not communicate what he was looking for". After showing a full project's design process and all the individual steps needed to create a product testing, workflows, personas, etc, he asked "but can I see the design work."

    Technology Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Brooklyn, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days - interviewed at Huge in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by the other Technology Directors. It took a number of hours, and involved mostly general "shop talk" and storytelling. I felt as if it was more of an assessment of their interest in bringing me into their club, than of my experience and ability to be an effective Technology Director.

    Project Manager - Washington, DC Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at Huge in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    The recruiter I worked with, tasked with hiring all client service positions, is unresponsive. I don't mean they takes a while getting back to you - I mean they flat out do not get back to you. They set up phone calls, and do not call. They asked me for last minute availability for a same day phone call. I let them know when I was available and then never got a single email or phone call in response. They do not manage the expectations of their applicants. This experience made me question if I wanted to work at this organization.

    Social Media Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Brooklyn, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Huge in February 2013.

    Interview Details

    The manager who interviewed me was confused and didn't know what to ask. So I just took matter in my own hands and led the interview. I toad them the usual stuff: work history, interests, special projects, achievements, and plans for the future.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Brooklyn, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Huge in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I sent in a resume and cover letter, and was asked to set up a Skype appointment. They were very friendly via email, but in the Skype appointment, the interviewer logged in almost 10 minutes late and promptly told me she had to leave in 20 minutes. She seemed rushed and rather uninterested.

    Interview Questions
    • This was what threw me off--other than, "Describe yourself", to which she reacted positively to my response, she didn't ask any other questions, she just spoke about their Friday afternoon culture (the interview was on a Friday) and asked if I had any questions. All in all, it seemed that she was just more excited about it being Friday than seriously interviewing me and asking about qualifications. In retrospect, I should have tried harder to turn the conversation back to my skill sets and past experiences than trying to relate to her and "have a good time chatting", if that makes sense. I had a very pleasant conversation, but despite my efforts, it wasn't really work related.   Answer Question

    Senior Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Huge.

    Interview Details

    I applied to the Washington DC office -
    When I first applied I did not hear back from them for a month and half. Finally, I received an automated email saying they position was not available at the time. Then the next day I get an email from the NY office saying they want to schedule an appointment with me in DC. We go back and forth to get something set up and I eventually got an interview. I have to say when they are interested in someone they move quickly. Once I had my first interview, the recruiter was very enthusiastic about following up on a second interview. When I followed up with her, she told me she was waiting on coordinating with the people who were suppose to interview me. In the the end I did not even receive any communication from her at all and she never responded to me. The entire process was very unprofessional. Others who have applied have told me a similar story.

    I think this a great company to work for, however I think they don't have everything straightened out in their DC office. I would not recommend for my friends to apply here because the process is reflective of their operations process.

    Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Brooklyn, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Huge.

    Interview Details

    They asked the standard questions, and I went over my work with them. I had been warned that I'd be meeting with the stereotypical hipster designer types, and they were right. No on warned me they'd be so conceited though. They frequently commented on their own work and skills, rather than asking about what i could bring to the table. To be honest, I was really surprised by their level of arrogance. I've worked at better firms like R/GA, Code & Theory, etc., so I was really shocked by how delusional they were about their own work and reputation. I don't think they realize that everyone knows all their best designers left with the original crew and all that's left are designers relying on a legacy that's quickly being replaced by a cliche of an agency. My recommendation is to avoid them and work at firms where the quality of work exceeds the level of delusional arrogance.

    Interview Questions
    • The most difficult thing to deal with was their arrogance. I honestly had a hard time not laughing when they'd pat themselves on the back.   Answer Question

    HUGE is a joke. Everyone in the design world knows it. Their reputation far exceeds their work.

    Senior Visual Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Brooklyn, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Brooklyn, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Huge in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online and was contacted through email fairly quickly. I had a short phone conversation with an HR recruiter asking basic questions about my background and what I am looking for. Then I had a skype interview with two department leads, where we basically chatted about Huge, what I like to design, and we walked through a couple projects. Finally I had a skype conversation with the ECD that was similar to the previous conversations. I received an offer a couple days later.

    Interview Questions
    • None of the questions were difficult. They were pretty standard design interview questions. I think the skype interviews are mostly to gauge what type of person you are and if you would be a good culture fit.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    They sent me an offer, I countered, and then we met in the middle. Overall pleasant experience.
