Assistant Account Executive Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
No Offer
Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FCB Global (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

Interview

Applied through university recruiting. A recruiter emailed me a couple of weeks later asking if I was still interested in working for them, and 1 week after that we scheduled a phone interview. It was a conference call with 4 other people listening, it lasted about 20 minutes. It was a negative experience not because I didnt get an offer, but because they were not friendly and did not make me feel welcomed in the phone call, it was very dry.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at FCB Global in October 2012.

    Interview

    There are lots of interviews, up to 8 different team members. May seem overwhelming, but they are checking to see the fit with the team because that's often the #1 factor. Lots of problem-solving type questions are asked, but all looking for the process used to solve rather than the answer itself.

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation, but I expect it was because I was entry level.

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FCB Global (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Initially applied through the career center at my school and received an in-person, on campus interview with a non-HR employee. Interview was only 15 minutes and was basically just a personality fit. I was told I would be contacted by the recruiter at the conclusion of the interview, which meant I had moved to the next round. Then I talked over the phone with the recruiter about a week later and this was another personality fit along with a basic phone interview. After a month or so I was notified that I had been chosen to participate in a final-round interview in their Chicago office. The interview consisted of a 5 minute "interactive resume" presentation, and 5 45-minute interviews. About a month later I was notified they were not going to make me an offer.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FCB Global (Chicago, IL) in November 2011.

    Interview

    She was rude and looked down upon me even though iwas obviously smarter and more prepared than she thought i was. Her questions were simple: what's your favorite adds? Why DraftFCB? Why the school you go to? etc... Since I attend an IV, her questions were as though I was pretentious and couldn't answer the simple questions she told me about like Tell me about a time when...

    Interview

    Talked to a representative from each department and a few extra from account management. Was pretty laid back but questions were insightful. Liked getting to know the people who worked there to help see how my personality would fit in. It took all day but I was set up in a comfortable hotel for the night and my travel was reimbursed.

    Had an on campus interview.
