Group Copy Supervisor Interview

Group Copy Supervisor

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ogilvy CommonHealth.

Interview Details – someone I know forwarded my name to the creative director. THey had a long-term assignment required a single writer's focused attention. I offered my services four days a week, one of which was to be off-site. For 8 months I worked freelance at a daily rate, and then went staff for nearly two more years.

Interview Question – Do you know where Parsippany, NJ is?   View Answer

Negotiation Details – Quick. I gave a day rated. THey got back to me. Then the project was delayed a week or two. Maybe it took two or three weeks before the project began.
