    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Hughes Hubbard.

    Interview Details

    Interview was arranged through a staffing agency and process took around 2-3 weeks. Candidates are required to complete a background check as part of the interviewing process. There is a second phase to the interviews where candidates meet the rest of the department.

    Candidates are warned to come more than half an hour in advance because of the lengthy application. I came in earlier to complete the close to 40 page application, but it still wasn't enough time before the client came by to ask me to move to another room for the interview.

    The employer seemed cordial at first, but that evaporated quickly into a rather uncomfortable and intense line of questioning, where they consistently reiterated over and over that the role is not creative because this is a corporate environment. There were some rather rude and presumptuous questions asked about why I was interested in the role, including why I wasn't working at an agency instead. I left without having a good sense of what they were looking for and was contacted by my recruiter around 2 weeks later saying that they didn't deem me "suitable" for the role. There was no exam given to test my skills, nor did we have a standard portfolio review (Where candidates show and talk about their work with a client) so make of that what you will.
