    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi (New York, NY) in April 2009.

    Interview

    My interviewer was very cool and collected and represented Saatchi and Saatchi to the T. The interview was very informal and friendly, and I was asked to go through my resume along with where I saw myself 5, 10, and 20 years down the line. My suggestions to prepare for this interview process is to know your resume along with some good stories to tie into it, make them laugh and your sold.

    Senior Vice President Group Account Planning Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi (New York, NY) in March 2009.

    Interview

    Initial interview with HR was uneventful, very standard - then asked to see Account PLanning Director. See asked me to write three "positioning statements" about myself and to email them to her before the interview. At first I thought this was weird - but got into it - and realized that it was a smart was to get to know who I was and what I could do ( how I thought and how I wrote, for example). Interview was great - she was smart, dynamic, eccentric, a real individual. Then I had to see about eight more people - who didn't really ask any insightful questions - just seems like they wanted to say that they were a part of the process.. took three weeks to get an offer.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    They gave me a quote - I thought it was fair - and took it.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi (Singapore (Singapore)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Sent an email to their HR who then forwarded it to their Regional Account Director who interviewed me the very next day. Was also interviewed by one other Regional AD. Interview was casual, and had the standard questions- strengths and weaknesses, why Saatchi, tell me about yourself, tell me about your personality. They also asked questions about my resume. The second interviewer asked pretty much the same, but also let me know about the job details.
