    Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Brunswick Group (New York, NY) in July 2015.

    Interview

    I met with some junior and multiple senior people. The recruitment process was very high touch. Questions ranged from my motivation to join the firm, to areas of expertise and experience with research and project management skills. There were also questions to probe judgment and discretion. Do your homework on the network and culture of this privately-held firm, it's tightly knit. Recommendations -- good or bad -- make a big impact.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Brunswick Group (Washington, DC) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Was referred, spoke to someone from HR for a 30-45 minute interview; standard questions, walk me through your resume. Then there was a 2 hour writing test; straightforward and easy but will take the full two hours. Then four in-person interviews all in the same day, each a half hour; everyone was nice, asked similar questions, mostly just want to know why you're interested in Brunswick and what transferrable skills you have to the position. Long process for an intern position but was ultimately not strenuous at all.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Brunswick Group.

    Interview

    Good experience, pretty drawn out, those who interviewed me felt like they had to do it, not that they wanted to. In other words, those outside of the team I would have worked with did not sound enthusiastic about the workplace or the company at all.

I am yet to hear back regarding the interview.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Employee

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty standard. Was originally contacted for a quick 15 minute phone call and then asked to complete a grammar and writing test. The grammar portion is pretty basic and the writing section has you write a press release and analyze a current new story. This was followed up by a couple more interviews with various individuals on the team.

    My biggest piece of advice is to know the firm inside and out, and be confident in your abilities. Brunswick is looking for individuals from a variety of backgrounds and there is no definitive background or skill set that they are looking to hire. If you can sell your self as a confident and capable individual you should do fine.
