    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Agency Within (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    First we did a bunch of tests (analyze this data, take this skills test), then phone screens where we went over the tests. Then I was called for an onsite. There were two more skills test--for me, Google ads and Facebook ads--then a panel-type thing in front of 15 employees who then asked you anything. After that, there was a one-on-one with an account manager.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Agency Within in March 2018.

    Interview

    This is a fake company.....they have people who they want to hire on H1B (International candidates) and part of the hiring process is to advertise roles so that anybody can apply. This is a mandatory thing by the USCIS to advertise and not just chose your resource. In order to do that they advertise positions but the position is already earmarked. So you have zero chance - even if you answer all questions right.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Agency Within in May 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and got a stock email with a coding challenge. The process was completely automated, and I was required to give a certain time and day to receive the challenge. The fact that I was asked to spend a somewhat significant amount of time (more than 30 minutes) on the very first stage and not have any contact with employees to ask basic questions about the company/culture really bothered me. I understand that the company may have strict technical requirements that applicants need to fill, but at least the courtesy of a 10 minute phone screening would have been nice. I decided not to continue and spent time applying to other places.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Agency Within.

    Interview

    A phone interview and an in person interview with the team. It was real basic to be honest. Just regular questions of your experience, your goals, what you know about the company, etc. They boasted about hiring people straight out of college, but completely overlooked all of my skills and my degree. Interesting. Judging from the overall staff, you must have the complexion for the connection. I've never seen a company that lacked so much black and brown diversity as much as this one does. I guess they're looking beyond talent and looking for young individuals who are lighter than a brown paper bag.

    Digital Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Agency Within (Long Island City, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The hiring manager scheduled a phone screen quite quickly after submitting an application.

    She was extremely straightforward and informative about both the job and the company, as well as its dynamics, culture, and structure.

    Within a week, I was sent an assignment to determine my experience and qualifications. It was a 4-question Excel-based project that would certainly decipher one's abilities with Excel as well as grasp on math and critical thinking.

    Shortly thereafter, I was asked to come in for an in-person interview. I was given another 2-part Excel-based exam with a 60-minute timeline, followed by a 60-minute follow-up to discuss my responses, as well as insights and relevant information. I was then asked to give a presentation in front of the majority of the company (not so much as presentation, as selling myself as the best candidate for the job). They then went around the room asking me (sometimes fun/silly) questions to get a feel for my personality, as well as ability to think quickly on my feet.

    I'll admit, though nerve-racking at first, it was actually quite a fun experience and great way to relate to potential future coworkers.

    Seeing that I would be a fine addition, I was asked to stay an extra hour for some brief training to gauge how quickly I could learn the material. (I actually came in the next day as I had other obligations)

    All in all, it was a unique and fairly fun experience. Agency Within has a unique structure and culture that I fully appreciate and believe is an ideal structure for a smaller company making strides in the field.

    Although I ultimately accepted another offer, seeing how the company functions with a unique blend of fervor and fun, I would've loved to work with them. If I ever end up on the job market again, I'll most certainly be sending them an application.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Agency Within (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with the hiring manager and the creative director. Pretty easy interview, we talked about my experience and various projects that I have worked on. I was notified a few days later that they have decided to go with someone else, I really respect that because many company employers in NYC will not respond even after a simple followup.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Agency Within.

    Interview

    The website has a direct link to a form to complete. There is a personality test and a data test. I passed the first round and was contacted by Noelle, the HR Manager, and asked to take another data test. This one had to be scheduled and done on Excel. There were four questions and the exam was timed via receipt of email. The first three were SAT style math questions which required some critical thinking but not too challenging. The final question was a large forecasting problem that I personally had no idea how to do since I was never exposed to this sort of problem before, and you aren't allowed to use the forecast or trend functions to solve it. They suggested you spend 75 minutes on just this portion of the exam... I did my best, but it wasn't good enough. Received an automated rejection afterwards.
