    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Tribal DDB (New York, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    Received application from my university but had difficulty submitting it due to formatting issues. Was a little more complicated than it needed to be but overall pretty general application. You will need two letters of rec, transcript, examples of past work, resume, and why you want to apply. After this step, you will be notified if you received an interview. Many applicants chose to interview in the NYC office if able but I interviewed over the phone. Was notified a few weeks later that I had been accepted. Worked from the beginning of June to the beginning of August.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Tribal DDB (New York, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I spoke with one of the project managers first about my motivation for Tribal, when can I start, the basics pretty much. Then I was led to the creative directors and I showed them my portfolio. After the interview finished, I went home and a few days later got an email saying I got the internship.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Tribal DDB (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was reached out to by the hiring manager and recruiter for an Operations role. Both were very friendly and responsive via email. I had a very good, honest and motivating call with the CFO and was invited in for an interview the next day. I met with 6 people over the course of an hour and a half. All were very respectful of my time and all gave a very cohesive message about the agency, it's challenges and there view of the role I was applying for. I didn't take the role as another opportunity came up which was a better fit for me at the time, but I have very positive things to say about Tribal, and hope I cross paths with the people I met there in the future.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Tribal DDB (New York, NY) in April 2013.

    Interview

    Interview process was really quick and painless. Appreciated the transparency offered regarding some of the current pain points by the people I spoke with during the interview process. Round 1 was one week with 4 people. Round 2 was the 2nd week with 2 additional people. I requested an additional phone interview during week 3 to follow up with clarifying questions on the role, vision of the agency, and account I'd be assigned.

    Interview Questions

    • It wasn't the questions asked. It was the information shared that took me by surprised. Spoke with 7 people and 5 of them shared details that would scare the typical person away. I was intrigued primarily because when I asked each one why they stayed at the agency, their response was the people and the recent change they see happening at the agency.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Recruiter was aware of my planned vacation during the upcoming 90 days and told me it should be brought up after an offer is made. Agency met my salary requirements, so no back & forth there. Vacation days were minimal, but expected for a new hire. Informed HR of upcoming vacation as instructed by the recruiter. Inquired about the ability to work remotely during upcoming planned vacation. Soon learned the agency wanted someone who would not be out of the office for extended periods (more than a couple of days). Offer was rescinded by the agency as a result.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Tribal DDB (New York, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    My initial communication with the Tribal DDB team came from a networking event the summer prior. I kept in touch and when I sent in the application, i was sure to CC that person as well. I received an email requesting a phone interview about a month later. I spoke to the HR Manager at DDB Worldwide (who I had also met previously the summer before).

    We spoke about the internship, my resume and I was able to ask questions. I got the sense that this internship was a lot of group work (with other interns), rather than working on an agency client. It's also a fairly new internship (2 years), so the structure is still being worked out.

    People are extremely friendly and I hope to keep those contacts for when I'm looking for full time employment.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    I ended up taking a different offer that I felt had slightly better content and an equally great reputation.
