    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at Acosta.

    Interview

    Very thorough and professional. They will make you feel very important and like you belong to the company before you even begin working for them. Ensure that you have an updated resume because they will ask you about your past employment and what you have to offer to their company. They will make you feel comfortable before, during, and after your interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Acosta in August 2014.

    Interview

    It was very quick, very professional and they were very open to answering any questions you have about the job. I enjoyed it and was thrilled when I got the position. Really wish it would have been in person but that's just not how Acosta works. You need to be an independent self starter to be successful.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Acosta (Green Bay, WI) in September 2013.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Acosta (Portland, OR) in November 2016.

    Interview

    It was a brief interview with the supervisor when he was visiting the area, then a follow up phone interview. The process took a couple months because the company was expanding the number of positions for the area.

    Interview

    Perhaps the weirdest interview experience I have ever had. I was told during the initial phone screen call that the salary was less than half of my current salary. I thanked the screener and indicated that I was not interested in pursuing the opportunity. A week later, I received another call from the recruiter indicating they would like to schedule an interview and knew that my salary requirement is doubled than what they are offering. He said that they may be able to adjust once we interviewed. Looking back, I am glad that we scheduled a video interview and that I did not have to drive across town because the hiring manager went on and on about the problems he is facing and how he is looking for someone to come in to essentially "pull the wolves off" him. He portrayal of the department and company was so negative that I could not set foot in those doors.

    Interview Questions

    • Cannot recall any questions the hiring manager asked because all I heard was his constant complaints about his problems.   Answer Question

    Multimedia Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Acosta (Dallas, TX) in July 2017.

    Interview

    There was a phone interview with the recruiter, a Skype interview with the team in Florida, and an onsite interview with the Dallas (Mosaic) team.

    The questions mostly focused on video and animation experience (which was great since that's what I wanted to do) but this was misleading. They really want someone to add interactive buttons in Adobe Captivate. The Mosaic Team in Dallas was completely unaware of this, showing a lack of communication within the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Acosta in March 2017.

    Interview

    Long and drawn out, hard to know what to make of it. It's an odd culture that doesn't seem to be overly transparent. The whole thing felt a bit off and intimidating.
