    Associate Account Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Detroit, MI
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Campbell Ewald (Detroit, MI) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Great HR people! Communicative and pleasant to speak with. Even when there wasn't a solid update on next steps as they waited for feedback from hiring managers, I was contacted just to check-in. That let me know that they were interested in me as a candidate and it's clear they take recruiting seriously. I have interviewed with companies where weeks go by with no contact or updates and then you get a call out of the blue asking for another in-person interview that you have to squeeze into your schedule. Despite the fact that the hiring team was busy, every effort was made to accommodate my schedule, which told me a lot about the people I would end up working with.

    Interview

    Went nicely with one other developer and the manager. Given through recruiter. Had to do a prior interview with recruiter. Standard questions asked and answered. Nothing too crazy.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Campbell Ewald (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email to set up a time for a phone interview with HR. After speaking with the HR lady, she immediately scheduled me for two in-person interviews, one with the Account Executive and another with the Account Manager. The Account Executive asked me pretty hard questions, while the Manager made it more of a comfortable conversation.

    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Campbell Ewald in April 2012.

    Interview

    I was first offered an on-campus interview set-up by a professor at my institution, which was pretty straight forward. It only lasted about 20 minutes and the interviewer asked the straight-forward questions, i.e. why am I pursuing advertising, which department(s) am I most interested in, what makes me qualified, etc.

    After that first interview, I was offered a second-round, group interview, several months later. Again, no surprises, but it is a bit awkward. They sit you down in front of 3 to 4 agency managers with a group of other candidates and are asked the same questions down the line.

    Interview Questions

    • Why do you want to work in advertising? Sounds easy, but when you have to listen to 3 other candidates answer the question and then have to say something original on the fly, it's more challenging than you might think.   Answer Question

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Campbell Ewald (Warren, MI) in April 2010.

    Interview

    Got brought into a conference room with 2 of the team members, who would eventually be my managers, and got asked a series of standard interview questions. Nothing was out of the ordinary, but they did make me feel very comfortable when they got towards the end of the interview and we started to discuss local sports teams and other non-business topics.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing out of the ordinary - just standard marketing questions. I don't think that there was even a business case question.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    As an intern, it was a "take it or leave it" kind of offer.
