    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Sterling-Rice in December 2013.

    Interview Details

    I applied online through a link on their website and they contacted me about a month later to set up a Skype interview. I interviewed with one of the Account Management employees for about 15 minutes. The questions were very basic.

    Assistant Account Manager Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Sterling-Rice in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    I knew that SRG was a place where I wanted to work, so I made the effort to follow them everywhere (Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, etc.). When they posted the opening for Assistant Account Manager on their Facebook page I thought I would be a good fit, so I sent my resume and cover letter to the e-mail address included in the post.

    A few days went by before I followed up, upon which time I was asked to fill out their online application (a bit strange since I had already submitted everything in the way in which they had originally asked on their post).

    I would say it was a couple of weeks before I was contacted by SRG for a phone interview. My phone interview wasn't the best, and after following up a few times afterwards I tore up my notes and moved on to looking at other opportunities.

    It took about two weeks before I was contacted about coming in for the in person interview. I first interviewed with a friendly member of the HR team, and then three really delightful members of the account team on Thursday, and I had the formal job offer on Monday.

    I know they get a slew of resumes, but overall it would have been nice to have had the first half of the process move more quickly (only for my own sanity). With that said, they obviously take who they hire very seriously, so I feel lucky to have been the one they eventually chose.

    Interview Questions
    • The hardest questions surprisingly came from HR: "What is the biggest misconception people have about you?"   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    It was acknowledged that I was a little over-qualified for the job, so I was able to negotiate a slightly higher annual salary.

    Media Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sterling-Rice in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by HR to set up an in person interview after submitting my resume & cover letter online. I met with four different people from the media team and the interview lasted about 2 1/2 hours. The people that interviewed me were friendly and wanted to make sure I was the right fit for the position. I was asked smart questions to get a feel for my interest in the department and my ability to multitask and handle stressful situations.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boulder, CO
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Sterling-Rice in July 2010.

    Interview Details

    It was easy, sort of a formality. I had freelanced a few times and actually turned down the job a year earlier. So this time around I was ready to make the move and it went very smoothly as I expected, due to my previous good relationship with the interviewers.

    Interview Questions
    • There really wasn't really anything unexpected. I had a previous relationship with the interviewers.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    Very little back and forth. It's my belief that you alway ask for more than the offer. They usually will meet you in the middle. Which equates to an instant raise.
