Application Details

I applied online - interviewed at Young & Rubicam.

Interview Details

I applied online and was selected to come in for interviews. After scheduling me to meet with two AE's who I would potentially be supporting, I sat in a conference room and waited for what seemed like an eternity. When I finally did meet the first person, they rushed through the interview. The AE had not looked at my resume, seemed bored and inconvenienced. The second AE never interviewed me in person as she was busy. Then why did I come in for an interview? An all around waste of time and bad experience.

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days - interviewed at Young & Rubicam in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    Very seamless. It's all based on current availability and fit.
    My friend shared my resume with HR, she followed up with the HR manager a week later.
    HR contacted me over the phone then invited me interview with her and the Account Managing Director of one of the accounts. Interviews went well and was asked to return two days later to meet with two Account Director of the same team.
    A week later I received the job.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a day - interviewed at Young & Rubicam in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    I interview with several different people at Y&R in the NYC office. I was told that I had a great resume and that they would want to hire me. WPP is on a hiring freeze and they were not allowed to hire. I was told to email me resume and they would email me back to set up another interview. After several emails and phone calls I never heard back.

    Interview Details

    I had a single interview during which I was asked to walk through my resume, explain why my personality and character traits made me well qualified for the job, etc. It was about thirty minutes long, not particularly stressful, and I was offered the position before leaving the interview.
