    Media Planning/Buying Trainee Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at OMD (Warsaw (Poland)) in April 2015.

    Interview

    They contacted me via phone and invited me in for a test. First, we (there was another person) were asked to write analytical skills test. It was fairly easy. This part of the experience was pretty good. However the interview that followed the test (about a week later) was terrible. The employees who interviewed me acted inappropriately: inside jokes, making fun of my interests - or so it felt, suggesting that I was lying about my interests (asking questions testing whether I was telling the truth). It was pretty unpleasant.
