They where very easy to talk to. As long as you can explain yourself, stay calm, confident and be yourself it shouldn't be too stressful.

    Media Supervisor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Digitas (New York, NY) in April 2013.

    Interview

    the head of HR didn't seem interested in what I had to say. She kept checking her watch, and interrupting me. Plus she showed up 20 minutes late. It seemed like she didn't know very much about the role, because she was asking very generic questions, and when I tried to dig for more specifics, she said she'd have to find out.

    Horrible Experience Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Digitas (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied for a Senior QA Analyst position in Dec of 2012 and Digitas’ IT recruiter contacted soon after. I did a preliminary phone screening and a few days later I was invited for a F2F interview with the QA manager, associate QA Director and the VP of Technology.

    When I arrived at Digitas’ location in NY, the person I was supposed to meet wasn't available, but her assistant quickly ushered me to the interview room. The office was pretty much what one would expect from such a “reputable” organization. The interview process was pretty straightforward. Most of the questions were pretty standard.

    Exactly two hours after my F2F interview, the recruiter called me and told me the interview went well and the team wanted to make me an offer. I was pretty happy about this, but soon after the nightmare began.

    The recruiter and I discussed company's benefits and what not, but he didn't put anything in writing. I requested the offer in writing, two weeks went by and I didn't hear back from him. Finally, he called me again to discuss compensation. Once again, I insisted that the offer be put in writing; eventually he sent me a contract with a top salary of $80k.

    Honestly, I didn't know how to counter such a lowball so, I asked the recruiter to google the salary range for a Sr. QA Analyst with 10+ years of experience in NY. As usual, he called me and upped the offer to $92k. Once again, I asked for the offer in writing and received and email a few days later saying that the management cannot meet my salary request. This was the last time I heard from him.

    I wish I had looked up Digitas before I wasted my time and energy dealing with them. I really hope future candidates see this review and make their decisions wisely.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Digitas.

    Interview

    The questions asked of me were pretty expected -- no curve balls. I was asked to describe a recent recommendation that I made to the client, and to describe my rationale. Other than that, standard questions regarding my media and supervising skill set.

    • Again, no curve balls. The interviewer was clearly just interested in understanding my skills and personality.   Answer Question

    Associate Account Planner Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Digitas (Boston, MA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I applied through my campus online portal, had an initial phone interview and then had 4 separate 30 min. interviews with different account planners in the Boston office.

    Everyone was very nice and friendly but 2 of them barely read my resume beforehand and were not at all prepared to interview me.

    In general they asked a little bit about my background/resume etc. and also asked questions to better understand how I think and approach problems.

    Interview Questions

    • I had lengthy discussion about a brand that I liked and then had to chose a brand in the same category that I believed was weak and why. From there I had to give recommendations on how I would change this brand's current strategy. The question was completely fair as it was trying to reveal how I think. That being said, since I don't spend a lot of time thinking about brands I don't like, I had trouble articulating why I didn't like this certain brand (especially because the category was so narrow).   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Digitas.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career site and was contacted within 2 weeks later for an on-site interview. It last about 30 min. with an HR representation and it was really laidback and conversational. I unfortunately did not get a second round interview, but it was a great experience.
