    Executive Administrative Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Razorfish.

    Interview Details

    I submitted my resume online and got an email a few days later from HR asking to set up a phone interview. I emailed my availability within hours of receiving the email. 3 days went by and I never heard back from HR. I emailed again and finally called and left a voice mail. 2 days went by and no response. As one last attempt, I call HR and am finally able to speak to the Rep. We schedule a phone interview for the following day: the interv lasted about 40 minutes and was a mix of casual conversation and typical scripted questions. She was nice and easy to talk to---she said she'd let me know in a few days. I never heard back from her. Even after emailing and following up.

    A quick "no" would have been enough, Razorfish. Thanks for stringing me along for every step of the process.

    Account Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Razorfish in January 2011.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by the recruiter from the Seattle office since recruiting is handled there. Total mystery even though SF is substantial. I had a phone screening that went really well, and that led to my on-site meeting with at least 6 team members ranging from Managing Director, Senior Account Directors, Project Managers, etc. The whole interview took almost 4 hours. The people were awesome, but sounded they were looking for people with more digital experience and they weren't convinced I had enough knowledge since I had more traditional than digital, even though I was most recently at an all digital shop. No hard feelings though. The recruiter assured I was qualified and invited me to apply to any future listings. Maybe it boiled down to personality match. I was not that upset about it because the SF office has a lot of tech clients, which is not that interesting to me anyway.

    Content Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Razorfish in June 2010.

    Interview Details

    Great interview, they said they were going to bring me in, but there wasn't any follow up. As a contractor, this happens sometimes. Everybody was really friendly and positive, the problem was there didn't seem to be follow-through. The process involved: (a) contact from recruiter, (b) eventually a phone interview, (c) nothing.

    Associate Creative Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Razorfish in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The interview process consisted of a phone interview with the hiring manager and then a week later, an in person 3-person panel interview over the course of two hours.

    The interviewer was very organized and efficient in the beginning, at least. But, then she took almost a month to get back to me. In the meantime, I found myself another job and had to decline Razorfish's job offer. I was pretty annoyed by the delay.

    The San Francisco office is well located at Fisherman's Wharf although it is a tourist-y locale. The folks in the office appeared like a cool, creative crowd. The furniture in the lobby is dated circa early 90's.

    Reasons for Declining

    I declined the offer because Razorfish took almost a month to follow-up after our interview. The offer was at least 10-15% more than industry standard.

    Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Razorfish in August 2008.

    Interview Details

    It was a little different because I went in as a freelancer first. So It was easier being in, than if you were starting fresh. There weren't any specific questions as much as evaluating you based on your creative work. Creative jobs are a little different from other positions. The hardest part was the negotiation process. It was a nightmare.

    Interview Questions
    • There were no specific questions, again because I was already freelancing there.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Terrible! The recruiter person was so lame. He wouldn't say the salary nor the benefits and it went back and forth for about 3-4 weeks.
