    I have been working at McGarrah Jessee full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The creative dept is hands down the best I've ever worked with. A constant strive of excellence and doing what's right is in the forefront of everyone's mind, which comes from the top down. There are boat parties, golf tournaments, beer:30 on Fridays (or any day with a beer client) and an honest share of profits.

    Cons

    As any growing company, trying to work through the demand of new processes and positions.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at McGarrah Jessee.

    Interview Details

    I saw a posting on Indeed.com and applied by emailing the contact that was listed. She contacted me immediately and one of the points in her email was that they did not offer relocation (which was fine because I only lived a few hours away from the HQ). We set up a Skype interview with herself and her colleague.

    The first question they asked was about my previous work experience, more specifically why I had left the company. It was the end of my term there so I had no firing or forced resignation story to tell. The rest of the interview was okay. They seemed like they were looking for a very specific candidate with specific answers to their questions. I thought my interview was not too bad, especially because I was and still am very passionate about the client that they were interviewing me for. I also asked about the scope of their work and the outlook of the company and client relationship. All seemed pretty good, though I had a few red flags about whether or not digital was an important part of their business.

    In the end, I did not get a job offer. As a matter of fact, I was not contacted again after that point! I had mailed hand written thank you notes to both women, with absolutely no response telling me that I was not what they were looking for or that I did not get the job. This could have very well been because I did not contact a single HR rep, instead going straight through to the account team. But either way they should have had the courtesy to officially reject me. I have no intention of applying to this company again or referring them to a friend or stranger.
