    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at JWT (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    1st Contacted by Email
    2nd Phone Interview
    3rd In person interview with 2 seperate people at seperate times. 1h with each person. Total of 2 hours.
    They were really nice. Asked a lot of questions about the resume and all the past experiances. Also they ask how would you handle certain situations. Overall interview was great. The only down side was that it was very hard to get in touch with them to find out about their final decision. I finally received an email saying that the team decided to go in a different direction and that they would like to talk to me more about it. We set up the time for the call that i have never received.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at JWT (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very reasonable and relaxed as most are in the industry. Definitely ask you a lot of questions and press you on your experience versus just listening to your resume elevator pitch. Overall, very fair and standard.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at JWT.

    Interview

    Was fine up until they told me I would hear back at a certain time. I came in for three interviews, that's a lot if time! I was told by the third I would hear on a certain date. That came and went and I heard nothing. I followed up with them and they ignored me. I assume I did not get the job and that they will never let me know one way or the other. Probably a blessing in disguise!

    Account Planner Interview

    Interview

    Interviewed at JWT India. A really unexpected experience - they forgot (mixed up?) why they had called me in, hadn't done their research and were a bit condescending. It's a great brand and I was ready to be wowed. However the interview really put me off the brand and I declined the next round.
