I interviewed at R/GA (San Francisco, CA) in May 2014.
Great experience. Team was very open and transparent with what they were looking for. Recruiter was fantastic with keeping applicant informed and in the loop as to status. Introduced me to other office that had a better position fit per my skill set

I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at R/GA (San Francisco, CA) in September 2013.
I've tried to get my portfolio reviewed unsuccessfully but the recruiter seems to hire only her friends.
- 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
Reasons for Declining
Very very clique-y, not a professional interview.

I applied online. I interviewed at R/GA (San Francisco, CA) in July 2013.
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.
- 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

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at R/GA (San Francisco, CA) in January 2013.
The interview process with R/GA was one of the best I have had. From the first moment of communication with the recruiter to the last, my experience was fluid, transparent, and very well handled by the people of R/GA SF.
- What is a producer to you, in your own words. Answer Question
- No Offer
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at R/GA (San Francisco, CA).
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.
- Mobile platform caching. What's your most notable achievement. 1 Answer
