ACD Interview

ACD
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a recruiter - interviewed at R/GA in September 2013.

Interview Details – I've tried to get my portfolio reviewed unsuccessfully but the recruiter seems to hire only her friends.

Interview Question – It was a difficult interview because the recruiter didn't seem at all interested in what I had to say, very frustrating. Gave the impression that this is not a club that would have me as a member, or a club I would want to be in   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – Very very clique-y, not a professional interview.

Office Coordinator Interview

Office Coordinator
San Francisco, CA

I applied online - interviewed at R/GA in July 2013.

Interview Details – I was contacted by someone in HR for a phone interview. It went well and she said she would like me to come in for a second interview and would email me the time and place. But she never emailed, even after I emailed her thanking her for the interview and asking about the details for my next interview, she did not respond until over a week later only to tell me they went with someone else for the position.

Interview Question – She asked me who my favorite designer was, even though it was not a design position, caught me completely off guard and my mind blanked and I couldn't think of anyone. I felt like that had a negative impact on my interview.   Answer Question

Software Engineer Interview

Software Engineer
San Francisco, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 2 days - interviewed at R/GA.

Interview Details – I went via a recruiting company in San Francisco. Interviewed with 6 people in one day. Short interviews, partly technical and partly general questions. The culture seems very political and seems like management expects you to suck up to them even on the interview. Seem to hire based on hipster culture.

Interview Question – Mobile platform caching. What's your most notable achievement.   View Answer
