    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Interpublic Group.

    Interview Details

    Unresponsive during the process. Interview was awkward and tough to get a good discussion going. Was made to feel as if there wasn't really a job open. No clear view on job or initial priorities. Tough to tell if this was an opportunity or kamikaze mission.

    Senior Business Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a dayinterviewed at Interpublic Group in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    Advertising agency experience was necessary for the position, as the position was supporting several of the IPG agencies on a business application applicable to planning, buying and production.

    My advice is to be prepared for the interview and be able to talk about how your past experience and achievements relate to the position. Additionally, I was told my follow up interview letter demonstrated I had listened on the interview.

    Reasons for Declining

    Organization constrained jobs to roles in an older style organization. Working in the environment would likely be too constraining for me since I am used to performing many tasks and roles and delivering quickly. It is probably a good environment for many people to work.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Interpublic Group in June 2008.

    Interview Details

    Ilked the people i would be working WITH and who would be working for me. The SVP, however, was stuck in the 1970's. The systems in place were so out of date and the philosophy they had about L&D was archaic. Meeting EVP of HR was even worse. She had no clue about L&D and had no answers to any of my questions.
