    Assistant Media Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Digitas.

    Interview

    Someone from HR reached out to me and we set up an intro call. Basic questions like walk me through your resume, why digitas, why media. I then had 3 Skype calls back to back. Then HR reached out to me with a" feedback call" asking how the interview went. She said they would get back to me in two weeks, but no one ever did.

    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.

    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.

    Started emailing with a recruiter followed by a phone screen. Offered to come in and interview with 4 people on the team over a 2 hour block. Had another offer from a competitor at the same time and let them know, they turned an offer around for the position the same day. Very pleased that the process was efficient and did not drag on.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Digitas (New York, NY) in November 2017.

    Interview

    Phone screening then In-Person interview with two people. First person was a young guy who was laidback and seemed interested in me. Second person was a young lady who was actually quite rude and didn't seem to be too interested in me. I've been through many interviews in the past, as I can say this lady was probably the rudest person I have ever had an interview with. She probably was in a bad mood. Nonetheless, I was very disappointed. Even if I got the position, I would've have accepted. She was the example of a terrible leader who you would never work want to work with.

    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.
