    Analytics Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Essence (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Got a response, two weeks after applying, from a recruiter. A phone interview was quickly set up for the following week. The day after the phone interview, got set up for two interviews the following week. Visited the office in the Flatiron District - definitely a great looking office - had a quantitative case study interview followed by a personal interview.

    Overall the process felt relaxed and easy. The people I met were all friendly as well. It is unfortunate though that communication immediately ceases once you are no longer being considered for the position.

    Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Essence (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Phone screen with member of the in-house recruiting team; in person interview w/3 members of the team I was hoping to join. I thought the in person interviews went well (and afterwards, when walking me out, the HR rep assured me that I would be informed of next steps either way), but as of right now, several weeks later, I have received no feedback or further communication from the agency. I have followed up with the HR rep requesting an update in my status (and noting that I understood if they did not want to move forward w/me)) but as of right now, all of my attempts at communication have been ignored.

    Considering the time and effort that I put into interviewing with this company, I find it extremely unprofessional that they refuse to even send me an email (which would likely take 1-2 minutes) confirming that I'm no longer being considered. Overall, this started as a positive experience but, as with many other agency interviews where the HR reps go radio silent, ended up being very frustrating. Why agencies decide to ignore communication instead of being professional and informing their candidates about their status is beyond me. It is disrespectful and reflects badly on the entire company.

    Interview Questions

    • The in-person interviewer asked me to "sell" the agency to them, which was obviously a way to check how much research on had done on the company.   1 Answer

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Essence (New York, NY).

    Interview

    An interesting interview process with multiple case studies. Be prepared to come with your calculator!

Overall still a good experience and met some smart people.
