Junior Analyst Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

The process took a day - interviewed at OMD in April 2012.

Interview Details – I was contacted by HR about a week after submitting my application to come in for a one on one interview. During the interview I was asked a series of basic questions. However, when the topic of my university came up the interviewer seemed more interested in gossiping about the recent on-goings at the school rather than my qualifications for the job which I felt was a bit inappropriate. Overall the interview went well but the position did not seem to be a fit for me.

Assistant Strategist Interview

Assistant Strategist
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through college or university and the process took a day - interviewed at OMD in June 2011.

Interview Details – After applying online, I scheduled an interview where I met with the HR coordinator and then the Account Director. Both were very nice and helpful, especially the HR coordinator who always answered my emails and questions promptly. The interview wasn't too difficult. They just wanted to know my prior experiences. In the end, I did not receive a job offer since they found someone who was more experienced, but my experience was very positive and I wish that I could work there in the future.

Interview Question – Tell me what you know about digital media.   Answer Question

Assistant Media Strategist Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
New York, NY

The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at OMD in November 2011.

Interview Details – The overal experience was very informal. I did not meet with HR, but rather 2 associates/directors for the respective account. I was there for approx 2 hours, and relocated to 3 floors throughout the entire process. I followed up several times. Finally, after 3 weeks of not generating any responses, I sent an email in which they responded with a simple "oh yea, by the way, we found someone more qualified". I felt this was very unprofessional since they informed me that they would be the ones to reach out to me upon their conclusion of reviewing candidates. I still have an immense desire to work for this agency, so I will continue to be persistent with all contacts that I have.
