    Senior Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Magnani Caruso Dutton.

    Interview Details

    Took 2 interviews, 1 with the HR (recruitment) and one with the creative leads. The questions are very casual and felt more like a conversation rather than a quiz.

    Negotiation Details
    It was shady at first as they did not want to provide specifics on the contract unless I get a visa approved, once I had the visa - the offer was a jr. position with a starting pay despite being a senior (midlevel) in my current job.

    Design Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Magnani Caruso Dutton in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through their website and was contacted by HR by email. She then called me to set up a Skype interview. It was weird because we had video through Skype, but the voice was through phone. I talked with 3 people-- the design director, senior art director, and associate art director.

    We went through my portfolio (I made a website for it). I talked about my process of each project. They told me what the average day of an intern would be. At the end, I asked them a few questions such as the culture/atmosphere of the company. My question that the design director (Mr. Dutton himself) thought was a great questions was: "What was your favorite project?"

    They took a look at my LinkedIn since I had it on my website and asked me a few questions on past/current experiences.

    I was contacted the day after to set up a phone talk with a recruiter. So I talked with the recruiter and they offered me the intern position plus pay. She emailed me paperwork and background checks, and asked for 3 references.

    Everything was rather fast-paced, but I accepted the position and am set to intern in the summer!

    Negotiation Details
    I did not negotiate nor did I provide a salary for them to base anything off. I simply told them that "I'm sure if an offer is made, that offer would reflect the skills I bring to the company."

    Senior Front-end Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Magnani Caruso Dutton in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Sat down in a room and did a test on basic front-end web development.

    You have to:
    Create a CSS sprite
    Open a link in a new window with javascript
    Fade a color from green to orange using jQuery
    Create a basic two-column layout

    You've got 20 minutes and it goes faster than you'd think. You're allowed to use the web but they have you on a screen capture service so they can watch your test later. Then you walk through your answers with other tech people there. Takes about an hour.
