    Associate Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Digitas in July 2007.

    Interview

    I reached out to Digitas directly because I was looking to jump into the interactive side of advertising. After an initial phone conversation with the recruiting team, they had me come in to meet with 4 individuals. The interview process went so well! Everyone was incredibly nice and was able to field all questions I had asked. They gave me a thorough view of what I could expect with the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Digitas (Chicago, IL) in September 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, phone call with HR and in person 2 hour meet with 5 person interview. Process took around 3 weeks or so.

    Everyone I met was great and respectful until the last person I interviewed with. She of course was a mid-level account person who obviously had no real knowledge of the digital space and would ask me questions, not look me in the eye and proceeded to draw on my resume the entire time. Never have I dealt with such a disrespectful, rude, and unprofessional person anywhere in my career.

    The recruiter was also slow to follow up and I had to send a few follow up emails with them eventually saying that I was a culture fit, but they weren't pursing my candidacy for the position, zero feedback.

    Quick. They contacted me Tuesday after the Friday I was in. They offered me a higher salary than I had asked so I was quick to accept.

    Interview

    Several interviewers come in and interview you back to back. I would say you get interviewed by at least 2 people and at most 4. They range from VPs to associates so be ready to answer an array of questions.

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Digitas (New York, NY) in April 2014.

    Interview

    I Went to a super-day in the office for seniors. It was set-up speed dating style with 3 rounds of interviews. However, the lounge area was so small, I was literally shouting to my interviewer for her to hear me. Moreover, all the interviewers asked me simple and meaningless questions. Nothing constructive or questions that allowed me to explain my extensive experience in this position. I do not understand how they evaluated which candidates they wanted to select. Maybe favorites or friends to employees?...

    All in all, one of the worst interview experiences i ever had. I dont think this process was thought all the way through.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Digitas (New York, NY) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I completed a phone interview with the recruiter then followed-up with a in-person interview with the planner, supervisor and director. The team seemed very personable but would not return any messages with feedback or information. The team - while intelligent - seemed to have little interest in filling the position readily.
