Very Difficult Interview
I applied through college or university and the process took 4 weeks - interviewed at Richards Group.
Interview Details – Typical interview process- Everyone I have come into contact with during interviews from TRG has been EXTREMELY stiff, unfriendly, all-work-no-play, and very difficult to talk to. Seems like they are trying to grill you and wait for you to slip up rather than root for you. They will pack in tons of questions and make it very one-sided and un-conversational. Correspondence is absolutely awful as well- I never even got an email saying whether I got the job or not.
I applied online and the process took 7+ weeks - interviewed at Richards Group.
Interview Details – The interviews by themselves were not bad. I spent about 4 hours interviewing with different principals across the company. I also had to take a personality and intelligence test, that weren't very difficult.
The worst part was the follow-up. I had been working with a coordinator (Richard's Group doesn't have "HR People") who was pleasant and easy to work with. She told me that they would have a decision by X. A couple days after X, I sent her a nice email to check in. She politely told me that it was going to be another week. This went on for a couple of weeks.
Starting to get a little frustrated, I contacted one of the principals at the company to see if he could help. A couple hours later I got an email from the coordinator's email address that was signed from the principal saying they weren't going to be hiring anyone. It left a bit of a bad test in my mouth.
Interview Question – Nothing terribly difficult - the usual, "where do you see yourself in XX years." Answer Question
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 days - interviewed at Richards Group in March 2012.
Interview Details – I interviewed at my school when they were I campus. It was a 60 minute interview with 4 different people. They asked what other companies I was applying for, if I had read their book, and what sources I use to learn more about brand management. They seemed very cocky and liberal.
Interview Question – What is a brand slogan you would create about something. Answer Question
