    It was a typical interview process that began with a phone interview with HR, phone interview with hiring manager and ended with an in person interview with hiring manager and associate team members.

    Multiple and lengthy interviews both on the phone and in-person. Moderately difficult, yet very fair. All interviewers from the team were responsive and awesome to engage with during the process.

    Creative Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 days. I interviewed at Finn Partners (Woodbridge, VA) in October 2019.

    Interview

    Got a call from an HR person about the position to request information. In a follow up call from me she promised to contact partners for the hiring office. Even with over two decades of experience; they only cited the last year working in another industry as an excuse to not even meet me in person. Was sent a reject email (no phone call) stating as such.

    For an agency claiming to look outside the box, they certainly want people who are advertising only without any deviation.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Finn Partners in May 2018.

    Interview

    Phone interview for a few minutes asking about yourself. They care more about your ability to articulate yourself than your actual answers, since you will be on the phone for a good portion of the day.

    Partner-In-Training Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Finn Partners.

    Interview

    This was only an informational interview. I had a representative reach out to me on Linkedin and we set up an interview. I got a call from someone in the HR department at Finn Partners. I was asked to describe a bit about myself and where I want to go. I was told a lot about company culture. And there were a few questions.
    I decided not to move forward in the interview process. They only pay $31,200 per year, in D.C. As a college graduate with two years of experience, I understand that I am not going to get $60,000+, but I know I am worth more than that.

    Your review is misleading as you applied for our fellowship-style opening and that is to see if you have the skill set, professionalism and ability to move into an Assistant Account Executive position after 4-5 months in this role. We pride ourselves on hiring positive and enthusiastic individuals into these roles with the expectation that they will continue on at Finn Partners. The screening for these roles is highly competitive and everything is spelled out clearly during the interview. I did confirm this with the office that conducted the interview for you.

    We have reviewed your feedback and our intern interview process does not include two phone screens and an in-person interview with HR. In almost all instances, an intern in-person interview would be with a Hiring Manager but we will certainly look into this matter.
