    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Phone call, then Skype with head of group, then a full day of in-person interviews with a variety of positions. Some include small groups and others are 1:1. One interview was over lunch. Only a couple of people asked to see work, others had seen it previously and the interview was more casual conversation for them to answer questions.

    Account Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Mullen in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    The process was fair and fast-moving. I submitted my resume and heard back within the next few days. I was asked to come in for five half-hour interviews. The recruiter was very kind and accommodating--and even gave me some tips. I met with five people who all asked fair questions, not many tough hypothetical (e.g., "Sell me this pen!") kind of questions. They wanted to know about my experience's relevance to Mullen, my opinion of their company, etc.

    Interview Questions
    • "Tell me something you disliked about the last agency where you worked."   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    It was 2009, and the economy was terrible. I took the job and low salary without hesitation.

    NOTE: I liked the interview process, but I hated the job (see reviews) and left within a few months.

    Assistant Media Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Winston-Salem, NC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Winston-Salem, NC
    Interview Details

    I interviewed for a couple positions after completing an internship at Mullen.. The interviews were scheduled and I talked to about 5-6 different people over a period of about 4 hours. They were all very informal and conversational. Most were laid back, but one person definitely tried to steam-roll through the interview. Typical interview questions mixed with some very random creative-type questions (most of which seemed irrelevant).

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    No room for negotiations, the salary they offer you is all they are willing to give you. And if you don't want it they make it clear that they will very quickly find somebody who will.
