    Pros

    Working at Allen will provide the opportunity to work with an amazing group of smart, talented people. You will also be able to work on high-end projects with leading companies. The breadth of projects keeps the work interesting.

    Cons

    It is a deadline-driven, quick-pace environment that can be stressful at times. There isn't consistency in what would be typical HR processes because there isn't an official HR department. Creating consistency and transparency would be beneficial to all employees.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at Allen Communication.

    Interview Details

    Initially, I was contacted by phone to schedule an interview for a week out. Upon agreeing on a time, I was sent a confirmation email with the date/time as well as the names and positions of the individuals with whom I would be interviewing. I was told that there were two parts to the interview: a 20-30 minute writing evaluation and a 30-40 minute personal interview.

    Upon arriving, I was asked to wait in the lobby until an administrative assistant retrieved me. She led me to a small room with glass doors where there was a Smart TV screen mounted on one wall and three chairs in the room. I was asked to select the seat where I felt most comfortable. I was then told how to complete the written evaluation. This was the part of the interview I was most anxious for, but it turned out to be about 11 multiple choice questions relating to grammar correction in a passage, 5 multiple choice questions that were 'select the best sentence to describe the picture', and then a short essay question about describing a situation. There is a timer on the evaluation and you cannot exceed 30 minutes. Be prepared that there will be a lot of individuals buzzing around outside the room while you are trying to complete the evaluation. It feels as though you are a fish in a bowl being observed by passersby.

    Once I completed the written evaluation, I was asked to wait for someone to lead me to the next phase of the interview. This is your standard interview where you are asked about your experience, etc. I was expecting questions regarding what I have done or would do in certain situations, but I was not asked any. Instead they questions were vague and left me feeling unsure of which direction to take them.

    The standard interview portion lasted about 40 minutes. I was then told that they would be back to me in a few weeks.

    Interview Questions
    • The questions were vague, but what you would expect. I wouldn't say that any one was more difficult than another. They really wanted to know if I had experience doing the job they were hiring for.   Answer Question
