    Brand Planner Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Young & Rubicam.

    Interview Details

    I applied for the job via a connection I had (lucky me) and had 2 in person interviews followed by one phone interview. All were pretty standard, just covering off on past experience and felt more like a personality check than anything else. They were hiring for a new account so there wasn't much to speak of as far as work.

    Negotiation Details
    I was actually surprised by the offer I received, because they came in higher than I had initially expected. We didn't negotiate because I'm a big chicken, and I accepted the offer outright.

    Great company, the interviewer was very cleaver. I would recommend young people looking to get into marketing to work at y&r. They are on the cusp of great innovations and ahead of the rest of the market.

    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    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 an employee referral. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Young & Rubicam in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Was referred by an employee to the head of the internship program. As a result I received the complete application and instructions about the cover letter and essay required. After submitting and waiting a few weeks I was brought in for an interview. The interview went well and wasn't overly challenging and I felt good about it. Unfortunately, I didn't get the internship in the end but was happy with the process and the opportunity to learn more about this company.

    I worked as a freelancer before they hired me. The interview process was more cursory because I had already shown them what I could do. The interviews were scheduled with the Executive Creative Director and the ACDs, both writer side and art director side. They looked at my portfolio as well.
