    Pros

    The people are great. Everyone is incredibly helpful and friendly. Management wants you to succeed and will do anything they can to help you during your first few months. Great sense of community. It's a very inspiring place and they do a lot of orientation programs during your first 90 days so you can see all the different sides of the company. They try to do an event every week, whether it be food trucks or farmers markets. Great work/life balance, friendly and casual environment. This is a great place to start out in a career. You work with nationally recognized clients and the company is only going up. There's also a lot of flexibility with scheduling and also with moving around the company. I've never enjoyed a job as much as I enjoy my job here and I actually look forward to coming here everyday.

    Cons

    The pay is awful and my only complaint. I was making 50% more at my last job and I won't see that kind of money again until at least 2 years of working here. Zimmerman gets away with the ridiculously low salaries because they know everyone wants to work here.
    I'd think twice about relocating here for an entry-level position. Rent in South Florida is ridiculously high and by the time you've paid rent, utilities, groceries, etc, you will have used up your entire month's paycheck. Many people here are living at home with their parents.
    A lot of people stay a year or two to get Zimmerman on their resume and leave for smaller agencies that will pay more money. It's really sad because it really is a great place to work and they don't want to leave, but they simply cannot afford to live off the salary.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Zimmerman Advertising (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    After I applied, they called me later that week to ask me about my interview availability, which went directly into a phone screening. It was slightly unexpected. They asked me about my work experience, briefly went over the job description, starting salary, and what they were looking for.
    The HR coordinator was nice enough to mention things I should research before my interview and after we had confirmed an interview time, she sent me a name of those I'd be interviewing with, the job description, and key points to research.
    They have valet parking for all the people interviewing, which is great. Upon arrival, she greeted me at reception and sat in a room with me to go over any questions I may have. She was very welcoming and reassuring. She gave me a quick rundown of each of the different interviewers' personalities and what types of questions they'd be asking me. I was going to be meeting with 3 different people.
    The first person I met with asked me very simple interview questions. Mainly about my past experiences and told me more about the position and that specific department. The second person was also very laidback and it flowed more like a conversation rather than an interview.The third person was the more difficult of the three. She asked me harder questions and a lot were scenario-based. She also told me what she's looking for in the position and how she was able to grow in the company.
    When I was done, the HR coordinator gave me a tour of the building and told me about all the company events they do.
    The whole interview process took about 1.5 - 2 hours that day.
    She said she would have an answer for me by Friday or Monday (I interviewed on a Tuesday). I didn't hear back until about 10 days after my interview telling me that I got the job.
