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

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at MindShare.

    Interview Details

    Process when I interviewed was through a recruiter. Once I was short listed for interviews the recruiter handled everything efficiently. HR wasn't involved until the offer phase which was streamlined and professional.

    Negotiation Details
    Not a lot of wiggle room... unless in a senior level spot. Ask about the "Partnership" levels and request this upon hire.

    Associate Panel Interview

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

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at MindShare in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    Kind of like speed dating for a job interview. You are put in a room and four different employees will come in to ask questions. Each person is assigned to ask different questions given to them from HR. Some ask about self, agency, and some other things. Mostly behavioral based. Every person made it a very laid back environment rather than intense. Felt like I was having conversations.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1 week - interviewed at MindShare in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    They interview multiple applicants by different stuff members in speed date fashion. So I had 4 interviews with 4 different Mindshare employes non-stop. Interesting fact that only 1 out of 4 was actually from department related to my job application others were from departments totally unrelated. It took 2 hours.

    Display Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at MindShare in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Directly first interview in the office with 2 people from the team. Great account, really good conversation about the role and media channels. Felt informal but was a thorough interview not only looking at my current role but also my career history and talking a lot about the demands on the managers and why they need new people to join. Tip: Make sure you know the salary you are getting put forward at, otherwise this may disappoint you and waste your time and theirs.
