- No OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Mindshare (New York, NY) in August 2015.
They told me I was applying for a general interview to see where my skills matched and it was round "robin style". I had no idea me and the other candidates were thrown into one room at the same time with different convos going on. It was difficult to focus and stand out.

I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mindshare (New York, NY).
Had to meed with three people.They told me they wanted to call me back with one more round of interview with a presentation. Never heard back from them even I contacted them after the interview. Thought it was rude since they reached out to me first and I had to take a day off for this interview

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Mindshare.
There was supposed to be a Skype interview. The woman that I was supposed to interview with cancelled on me 30 minutes after the interview was supposed to start and told me she would reschedule. She never emailed me back after I sent her my hours of availability. I emailed someone else and scheduled it again with her about two weeks later and this time she cancelled on me again and referred me to a phone interview with someone else. It seemed as though she really didn't care.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mindshare.
I was referred by a friend who works at MindShare. After she turned in my resume, I got a call very quickly about coming into the office to interview. I was a bit surprised because I do not have a media background but was excited because I had heard such positive things about the company and the culture. The office is definitely open and casual with a young environment. I went into the office 2 weeks later to meet with some members of the team I was applying for. A few things: after scheduling my interview, I got an email with a link to apply online. It was a link to their generic open job postings. Therefore, I didn't know which team I was applying for until I got there. Secondly, for a "final" interview, I met with less people than I was expecting. Someone else I know that works there also told me people usually interview with more people than I spoke to. I'm not really sure if this was because the role needed to be filled immediately or some other reason. I received an offer less than a week later but was given limited time to accept or decline it. I declined simply because I wasn't ready to accept the offer so quickly without giving consideration to other factors and other offers on the table.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mindshare.
I have interviewed with this company on two separate occasions for two different positions. Both times proved them to be extremely disorganized. They recently went through a restructure and I was told I would have to interview with all of the M's under the GroupM umbrella, regardless if there was a position needing to be filled, as was protocol. I had to take off 3 separate days and find time for 2 phone interviews just to interview with this company - only to have them never call me or follow up. I have since cut my losses but be warned they are very slow to move things along and are extremely disorganized.

I applied online. I interviewed at Mindshare.
A basic phone interview (why MindShare? Why this position? Tell me about your resume, etc.) and two in-person's. Focused on background, but also personality and fit within the department. Straightforward about what the job entails and expectations. Got pretty specific into each interview answer, your work ethic, etc. Overall, solid interview process and I felt like if I got it, it would be a great fit, and if I didn't, then they knew I wouldn't be a good fit and it would be for the better.
- How do you stay organized... specifically? Answer Question
- Declined OfferPositive ExperienceEasy Interview
I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mindshare (New York, NY) in March 2015.
I applied online via their careers page and utilized a previous intern's referral. Had a brief introductory interview via phone and was then invited to come into the office for about 2 hours and four interviews. A few other candidates and I participated in a "round robin" style of interviews where we sat in the same room and had four different employees interview us for about half an hour. All interviewers had a list of set questions that they were going through and most seemed like they were just going through the motions and checking questions off their lists. Unfortunately, I was in a room with another candidate interviewing so there were four people with two conversations going at the same time. Thankfully, I was able to maintain my focus but it was very unprofessional on HR's part.

I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Mindshare (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.
I was called once on the phone for a Skype interview with someone from the New York office. I answered a few behavioral interview questions as well as "Why are you interested in Media?" and "Why do you want to work for Mindshare?"

I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mindshare.
After coming upon Mindshare's opening, I was invited in for an interview and met with 3 of the team members. They were informative but informal, and it made the conversation very easy. Asking about my previous experience, they outlined almost exactly what I was expected to bring to the team, and helped me get an understanding of some of the challenges they were facing. This simple interview process is how interviews should be.
- Do you have experience working against tight timelines and working across more than one client business? Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Mindshare in December 2014.
It's mostly behavior questions and they are trying to find out if you are a logical or creative person. It really depends on the interviewer. There's not much surprises as you go through your resume and see if the job description matches with skills. The process take 2 weeks as the recruiter phone screen you and then set up an appointment for you to meet with the hiring managers. You will be interviewed by various companies and various employers from 1 to 1 meeting or a group of 3 hiring managers. It sounds frightening but it is easy and they don't really grill you into it as it's only entry level, but do be prepare and you will have some great interviews with others and apathetic interviews with others.
