Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Employee
Chicago, IL

I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at MSLGROUP in July 2012.

Interview Details – Interviewed with six different people in total ranging from those on the team I would be hired to work on to the VPs and SVPs of the company. Each interview was approximately 10-15 minutes in length with the first round having three interviews and then on "call-back" three more interviews.

Knowing the company and having questions from work-life balance, office culture to clients you'll be working on etc. are encouraged!

Interview Question – There were no unexpected questions - very standard questions pertaining to my previous work experience. Questions are asked with the intention of understanding how your background will be applicable to the current clients.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – I negotiated for a higher salary and was granted the higher salary. Salaries are based upon client budgets when hiring.

All day long interview process where interns undergo a speed-dating style format and meet with several SVPs and management.

Senior Vice President

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 6 months - interviewed at MSLGROUP.

Interview Details – I was recruited by an expert consultant. He painted a great picture of a PR firm on the rise. I met with the President several times then was introduced to key leaders.

Senior Account Supervisor Interview

Senior Account Supervisor
Atlanta, GA

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at MSLGROUP.

Interview Details – The interview process took place in 3 steps - phone interview with HR followed by in-person discussions with superiors and peers, and a last round to meet the junior staff. Everything went smoothly and quickly. The issue is I was lied to about the health of the client relationship - when told the agency was in good standing with the client I later found out that the client was on their way out. They fired the agency during my first week.

Interview Question – Be prepared to have examples of work that you've done that you're proud of. Lots of questions about past successes.   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Easy - they met my salary and vacation requirements.
