    Average Interview

    Application

    Media Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at C-K (Chicago, IL) in July 2015.

    Interview

    It began with a phone interview with HR, followed by numerous one-on-one in-person interviews within one day, and completed with an in-person presentation for a group (required for more senior positions). The HR staff was great to work with throughout the process from beginning to end. The in-person interviews seemed a little scattered since they tried to fit 5 into one day, but otherwise were fine. The presentation was intimidating, especially once the group began asking questions about the presentation itself afterwards. I received my offer via phone call, followed up via email.

    Interview Questions

    • Given objective x (I forget the scenario presented), tell me a media strategy that could fulfill this objective.   1 Answer

    Vice President Account Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at C-K (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    First interview was an informal meeting with the VP Account Director, and then HR. She was about 20 minutes late, and I didn't leave with a great sense of what it would be like to work at the agency. I also wasn't asked very many questions that have me the opportunity to share my expertise/ applicable experience. Wished for more, but it wasn't necessarily a negative experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at C-K (Chicago, IL) in April 2012.

    Interview

    Applied directly to creative recruiter, who in turn conducted a very informal phone interview. He then connected me to some creatives, just to chat. I wouldn't even consider it an interview. They just wanted to make sure they weren't dealing with some sort of jerk.

    Average Interview

    Application

    Interview

    Interview rescheduled twice including day of.

    Two managers I would be reporting to did not seem aligned at all. These are the two people I met with in the first interview.

    Waiting room was awkward- nothing to read or watch.

    Declined moving forward to next steps - didn't feel it was a cultural fit.
