    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Lamar Advertising.

    Interview

    Pretty basic interview, anyone with a good sales approach should do fine. They want hunters, obviously who will go out and knock on as many doors as you can. You do have to pass a drug test before hiring and are subject to random drug tests throughout your employment.

    Interview Questions

    • No difficult questions you shouldn't be able to handle if you've been in sales before.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Lamar won't negotiate, and their starting salary is extremely low. That's why many candidates decline working for them.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Lamar Advertising in November 2008.

    Interview

    I presented my portfolio and gave my resume to someone within in the company; he gave it to a manager once it came time for hiring (months later). Manager called me in for an interview and to review my portfolio. It was a very relaxed, 1-on-1 interview. Although I wore a suit, Manager was in shorts, a t-shirt, and sandals. Manager was very friendly, made me very comfortable, and gave me an idea of a daily schedule there. Once Manager approved, he needed the General Manager's approval and I went on an interview with the GM about a week later. Even my interview with the GM was relaxed, casual, and inviting. Roughly a week after my interview with the GM, the Manager called and offered the job with my requested hourly pay. When I got a tour of the place, I noticed the workers were all very young (aged 25-40) and relatively new to the industry. Although the work culture is more casual than others I've experienced, this is in no way an indication that the people do not work hard. The designers must complete a lot of work in a day and there isn't much room for goofing off. Unfortunately, the physical environment in which the designers worked inhibited their creativity, in my opinion.

    Interview Questions

    • Truthfully, the interview itself was not typical an no particularly difficult questions were asked.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I requested a specific hourly pay and I got it. However, I made sure to stay within the middle of our local industry's pay range while still pitching higher than I was making at the time.
