Communication Design Intern Interview

Communication Design Intern
Portland, OR

I applied online and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Ziba Design.

Interview Details – I reached out to the design department for an informational interview and after Skyping with them submitted a resume online for the summer internship. I was later contacted about interviewing for the position and Skyped with the design director and another designer to present two pieces of my choosing from my portfolio.

Interview Question – Nothing was too hard, they asked some specifics about the pieces I presented but nothing that was out of my realm of knowledge about my own work.   Answer Question

Account Management Interview

Account Management
Portland, OR

I applied through an employee referral and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Ziba Design.

Interview Details – My interview consisted of a round table interview in their main conference room. There was a mix of Creative Directors, account people and the owner himself. The interview was proceeding normally until the end at which point the owner started to get quite heated. I'm not sure what I said to set him off, but it was quite awkward.

Interview Question – They asked me to write a paper about which archetypes. It was actually quite easy. It was just more of a nuisance.   Answer Question

Reason for Declining – I'm sure the owner is incredibly talented, but I'm assuming from the interview process that his personality creates a hostile work environment.
