Accepted Offer – Interviewed in Boston, MA Dec 2009 – Reviewed Feb 16, 2013
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 Question – "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.

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 Question – If I had to be something in a salad, what would I be? Answer Question
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.

Interview Details – Although they expressed great interest in meeting with me, they put me off time and again. When they finally did bring me in, it was very disorganized. One of the main people to interview me was outright rude. I was a bit shocked to see that Creative Directors had to answer to a 20-something office manager, with whom they had to check in and out. I've never seen such a rigid - almost kindergarten-like - structure at any other agency. There was one person there whom I liked a great deal, but the rest of them bordered on unpleasant. I regret not having passed on lunch and the rest of the day's interviews.

Interview Details –
I applied via Monster and followed up through emails. All the way from the start, they were very nice and friendly. About three days after submitting my resume, I got a call from the Dir. of PR to set up a phone interview. It was friendly, mostly resume stuff, lasting about 15 minutes.
They got back to me in a week and invited me to come and have six interviews with people ranging from AE's to VP's. The interviews were all pretty positive, and the conversation was generally flowing. I didn't feel as if they had asked any questions out of my ability to answer. This was followed by a writing test and a mock press release, which took about two extra hours to complete.
Unfortunately, after a number of (successful) follow-up conversations with people I had met, I was informed about two weeks later that they had accepted someone else for the position. Still a positive experience though.

Interview Details –
I was contacted by HR via the phone and the conversation was short. She asked me about my interest in the position and then asked my availability in the coming week. She offered me a Monday interview, but I was unable to make it so we moved it to Tuesday. She said she would call me back with a time. I didn't receive a call until Monday at 5 for the time of my interview the next day. I went into the interview and was given a sheet with 6 people I was going to meet with. Each interviewer was scheduled for a half hour block and at the end of the day an excel aptitude test was required. The interview took about 5 hours in total.
Each interviewer asked only a few questions about my resume and a majority of the time was spent discussing the advertising field and what the position was like. It was very free flowing and relaxing.
I heard back a week later and was told that I didn't have enough agency experience for the position, but overall it was a positive experience and enjoyed having an open discussion about current marketing campaigns and Mullen as a company.
