Media Storm Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Associate Analyst Interview (Neutral Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Media Storm in January 2013.
Interview Details – Applied through their website, then received a phone call from Human Resources for a pre-interview screening which I passed. I was then set up for an interview. I interviewed with the two head mangers of the department. They were nice but the second manager lied to my face, he said they would be hiring within a month and then received an email the next day that I didn't get the job.
I think they were just looking around and the position wasn't even available. I was prepared and they said they liked my questions.
Interview Question – All the questions were easy, typical interview questions. Answer Question
Senior Executive Interview (Positive Experience; Easy Interview)
The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Media Storm in November 2011.
Interview Details – They were organized. The first interview was with the head of the agency and then the second, in person, with a senior team member. They were both smart and asked great questions. What's odd is that the company's Web site is really outdated, with announcements on the home page from 2010. Media Storm tries to position itself as on the edge of media, but the Web site raises flags.
Planning Coordinator Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Media Storm.
Interview Details – Applied online through system and received an email within 48 hours (loved the quick response!) telling me that although I didn't have enough experience for the job I applied for, another similar entry-level position had opened up that fit my qualifications. Told them I was still interested and had 2 in person interviews on separate days, followed by a phone interview with a 3rd member in the department (so I wouldn't have to commute in to city again), and finally a phone interview with the hiring manager. Although I didn't get the position the process was fairly good. Everyone I spoke with was friendly and they didn't ask any crazy, unexpected questions. They also were very good with getting back to me quickly and moving the process along.
Interview Question – None of the questions stood out to me as unexpected/difficult, they were very much in line with the job description Answer Question
