    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at C-K.

    Interview

    Interview with HR, then interview with 4 people in one day. I liked the interview process but each interviewer has a sheet with questions that they have to ask, and it seems odd to go down a list. It should be more of a conversation and not required questions. I understand specific questions need to be asked but have them memorized don't look at a list.

    Had 3 interviews total. 1 Phone interview with HR, 1 interview with the Account Directors & Supervisors, 1- interview with Group Account Directors.

    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at C-K (Chicago, IL) in June 2009.

    Interview

    The interview process at Cramer Krasselt is a long and ridiculous process. For me, I was contacted by a head hunter who submitted my information. Four weeks later, I was called in for an interview followed by three more interviews over the month that followed. During my final interview, I was asked to be prepared to stay for an entire day--which I did. During my final interview, I met with employees from the admin assistant to the account director.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at C-K (Chicago, IL) in March 2012.

    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.

    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.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at C-K (New York, NY) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The process only took about a week or two. They ask pretty typical questions for this position about who you are and why you want to work here. You talk with people in the department that you're interested in. Since the office is so small, I got to talk to all of the people in my department.
