Assistant Search Planner Interview

Anonymous Employee
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Neo@Ogilvy.

Interview Details – My application was referred internally, at which point the HR manager contacted me directly to set up a phone screening. After the screening, I was brought in to interview with 3 different teams, first with each team's more junior members, and then with the two most senior members of each team. I was provided with the job offer a week after interviewing, and the HR manager took the time to call me to make the offer during her Easter Sunday lunch. Very dedicated hiring managers who take the process seriously.

Interview Question – I had transitioned from a field very unrelated to digital marketing, and many of my interview questions were inquiring about the relevance of my background.   View Answer

Negotiation Details – No negotiations.

Assistant Strategic Investment Planner Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 1 week - interviewed at Neo@Ogilvy in April 2013.

Interview Details – Hiring process was very organized and efficient. I met with both upper and mid-level employees. In all cases, they didn't leave much room to talk about myself and didn't really ask any questions about my abilities per say. Interview lasted about an hour and half. I was told their were looking to hire within the week which ended up not being true. I felt a little lead on but grateful for the opportunity anyway.

Interview Question – What do you like to do for fun?   Answer Question

Difficult Interview

Rotational Program Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Neo@Ogilvy in March 2010.

Interview Details – also submitted writing samples and case studies after a first round in person interview... the people I spoke with were great. I made it to the final round and didn't get the look for the offer. Those were also rough times for traditional agencies (lots of layoffs). All works out for a reason though

Interview Question – Written essay question essentially: what's the next big trend in digital media?   Answer Question
