    Intern - Hourly Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Commonwealth in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was called back in early February for a phone interview that lasted about 10 minutes. Basic questions regarding my resume were asked. I was not contacted again until mid-March when I was asked to interview with a specific team. The interview was decent, some easy questions and some harder ones. Then nothing happened. I didn't hear from HR again until May. I figured I was not chosen to be an intern but instead they wanted to interview me again for another team which couldn't happen until the end of May. I went in to interview, the team that interviewed me seemed uninterested and a few days later I heard back and I didn't get the job. The entire process was too long and came across as very disorganized.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Commonwealth (Detroit, MI) in March 2016.

    Interview

    A recruiter contacted me, and set up a phone interview with the hiring manager. We had a second phone call with the hiring manager and another director within the company. Both interviews were refreshing in that they were transparent in the inner workings of the company and how the role would play out. In both interviews I seemed to interview them more than they interviewed me. Hiring manager was very affable and transparent.

    Associate Digital Artist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Detroit, MI
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Commonwealth (Detroit, MI) in June 2018.

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email schedule a phone interview the next day. The phone interview was the following week, and I was asked fairly standard questions regarding my background. I heard back again a week later, when they scheduled my first in-person interview. I met with the Executive Print Producer and one of the Senior Digital Artists on their team. The atmosphere of the interview was fairly casual — as I presented my portfolio of creative work, they were able to bring up relevant interview questions in a conversational way. Within the week following this first interview, I received another email from the recruiter I had been in contact week asking to schedule a follow up in-person interview. In order to make their final decision, they wanted to meet some of the other Senior Digital Artists on the team. The second interview was shorter as they did not have me run through my portfolio, and instead asked more questions about my background, experience, and skill set. The second interview concluded with a quick tour around both floors of the Commonwealth offices. Two weeks later I received a final email stating that they had chosen a different candidate.
