    Account Executive Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I got an email from a recruiter, then quickly went through the initial interview with the HR rep, and then took a writing test. Both pretty simple and straight forward. The following week, I met with the executive I would be assisting. The interview lasted about an hour so I thought it went pretty well. About a month went by and I received no word from them. I followed up and they said they were interviewing other people and still hadn't made a decision. Another month passed and I followed up again. However, this time they replied saying I didn't get the job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency (Los Angeles, CA) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Overall the process was long and dragged out, a lot of back and forth. I did feel a little strung along, only to find out the position was hired internally.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I met with the HR Director and it was a pretty standard interview. She was really nice but definitely knows what she's looking for. I kind of felt like she already made a decision about me within the first minute of the interview but she carried out the interview protocal because she had to.

    Intern Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency in August 2017.

    Interview

    There were two interviews. The first is with someone from the HR department and the second was with the department head of the particular internship I applied for. Both the people I interviewed with were super great and easy to talk to. However, I will say be prepared to have an interview on the spot or get notified about an interview very last minute. I’m not sure if that’s the case always but my experience was that way. I applied for the job 3 months before the start of the program and when I heard back I was surprised and had honestly sort of forgotten I had applied so I was caught a little off guard but I think I still did well considering I was passed on to the second round of interviews. I was notified a day after the phone interview that they would like to have a Skype interview later that day. Btw I’ve heard that they are very picky about who they hire so don’t be discouraged if you don’t the internship. Also I was never notified of a decision so I actually contacted them instead and that’s when they got back to me to tell me no. They’re busy people so they don’t have time to get back to everyone but they will if you try contacting them first.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Creative Artists Agency (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I applied to CAA on the company website and was contacted within a week. I had a phone interview with the HR representative and then went in for an interview with the assistant I would be replacing. The interview was pretty generic and I thought it went well. After the interview and follow ups, they kept saying they were still in the interviewing process. It took them about 4 weeks to tell me I did not have the job. I had to take a skills test as well on Microsoft applications.
