    Creative Name Team Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Bayamon, PR
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brand Institute (Bayamon, PR) in January 2021.

    Interview

    First they send a test to gauge your creative capabilities and then they do an interview via zoom, which they send you a link. The test itself was brief and the interview process is more about finding out your creative process.

    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Brand Institute.

    Interview

    The interview was fine. Listening to the CEO talk was important. Answer the questions that you are asked. Don't interrupt the CEO. Unfortunately their pay and benefits are way below the industry average. Vacation of two weeks is non negotiable with no increase based on years of service; and you have to ask the CEO for permission to take vacation days. Too many red flags.

    Never undervalue your worth and compromise by accepting an offer that does not compensate you for your experience. Reading all of the Glassdoor comments provided transparency as to the leadership of the company and how employees are treated.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Brand Institute in May 2019.

    Interview

    The interview process was a waste of time. You have to deal with a secretary who knows nothing about sales. Upper management said that I was not qualified. The position is posted on different websites.

    Market Research Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Miami, FL

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Brand Institute (Miami, FL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It happened very quickly. Applied to the job online, got an email the next day to schedule a phone interview with a VP on the next business day, so really the process took 3 business days.

    I was asked questions I should have expected, and some I did not expect, like really really basic questions - the one below. Also asked me how many variables I and my team members for one research project studied. Questions like that don't make much sense because what are they actually looking for? Someone could be looking at 20 variables in total, but they really only care about one. As some other reviewers have mentioned, getting those types of questions was a little demeaning. They said to me that they would be filling the position within the next few days. About two weeks later, I still haven't heard back from them. It'd be acceptable if I did not interview with someone and I did not get any response, but to interview with a VP and then not hear anything at all? That's unprofessional in my opinion.

    Also, the job description made the job out to be something totally different than what I discovered the job would actually be like during the interview. I realized I wouldn't want to work for them anyway...

    Associate Director, Brand Development Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Brand Institute (Boston, MA) in February 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted through linkedin regarding an Associate Director position, I was interested so I submitted my resume to the e-mail provided. I was contacted the same day with a request to set up a phone interview with the CEO and a lead administrator.

    Everyone else is correct when they say that they were very rushed with regards to scheduling the interview. 2 days later the phone interview took place. The CEO had to leave after a minute or so, but the administrator was very cordial and suggested that we set up an in person interview. So far, so good. I had read the negative reviews on glassdoor before my phone interview, so I was admittedly skeptical beforehand but since that interview went well, I was willing to do an in-person interview.

    They wanted a very quick turnaround on the in-person interview as well - I had to reschedule due to a big snowstorm but it still was scheduled very soon after the phone interview. The morning after the snowstorm I was driving over to the interview and I received a phone call stating that the interview was cancelled because the position had been put on hold. This was exceptionally unprofessional. They utterly wasted my time after they initially reached out to me. After this type of behavior I would encourage anyone to not spend any of their precious time following up with this company. After reading all of the reviews on here, it seems as though professionalism, common courtesy and decency are traits that this company very clearly lacks. Look elsewhere for your career. I was affronted at the terrible way they dealt with my interview, but count myself lucky that I didn't end up taking a job with them.

    I was contacted by them on linkedin and I sent them my resume. After about 24 hours they said they wanted tot schedule a phone interview and only gave me two times within the next 3 days. It seemed very rushed and after reading some of these other reviews I ended up declining the phone interview.

    Adv Brand Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Brand Institute (New York, NY).

    Interview

    There was not only the CEo but also an Council in the phone interview, which was sort of surprising. They hang up on you, no interest in you as a Person, nor in your CV, experiences or skills. The only question was, are you willing to relocate? It was short, straight forward which I like but I'm suprised about a CEO taking his time and havin the time to ask the only question, are you willing to relocate. They could have done this in a mail, as they did before asking me for my salary.
