    Associate Creative Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fluid (New York, NY) in December 2010.

    Interview

    When you walk in the door, you literally feel the energy of a startup company with a mission. This is great, considering Fluid is a 10 year old company with a well established presence in San Francisco. The culture is open, positive, and the people there a truly passionate about what they do and how they do it. Innovation and progress seem hardwired into the company, and chatting with the co-founders and employees will immediately make you aware that this is a company on a mission to do great things. The phone screenings were very thorough and engaging but not laborious, and the questions were very detailed and focused. My advice to other candidates would be - bring your "A" game, know your stuff (in terms of work, trends, etc), and be confident in who you are. If you can't handle those three things, don't bother applying.

    • You seem very proud of your work for your current client. Why are you looking to leave?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Negotiations were smooth and efficient. I had 2 other offers pending at the same time, and Fluid was the company that stood out as one that actually listens to and, most importantly, responds to questions and concerns. I feel their offer was very fair and competitive with much bigger companies/agencies, and accurately reflects my own valuation of my skill set and growth potential.

    If you are considering an offer, think not just about what you are doing right now but think about what you think you'll want to be doing in 3-5 years. There are opportunities to grow and expand your skill set here that you just will not find in other agencies.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Fluid (San Francisco, CA) in July 2011.

    Interview

    First they messed up to schedule the appointment. That was because someone failed to schedule the interview on the interviewers calendar. They made me wait that day. I had to contact them to see if the position was available and they scheduled me again. The day of the interview something went wrong. The interviewer seemed nice but when he asked me a question, I did not understand what he said because I am an English as a second language speaker. He thought I did not know anything about CS so he declined to continue interviewing me and let me go. I was concerned so I asked them for any feedback, which they never responded back.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at Fluid in January 2013.

    Interview

    I had a few different phone interviews throughout the process, the company seems to have it's act together in recruiting and the technical questions were very challenging. As it was only scheduled to be a 30 min phone interview, I sort of underestimated the amount and scope of technical questions I was going to get hit with. I was forced to stay on track when I tried to expand on some past work (which are topics I have rehearsed well and that I like to bring up). Come prepared ready to talk fast and make sure you up to speed on the technical side.

    Visual Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Fluid (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online, and was contacted by HR for a phone interview. The phone interview was typical, wanted to get to know me and my skills. About a week later, I was invited in for in-person interview with the CD and then two ADs, who would all work directly above me.

    I enjoyed meeting with all three -- I felt like I could be myself and they really appreciated that. Their lack of stuffiness allowed conversation to flow naturally about my career and the company. Everyone I met was very friendly and seemed happy and excited about what they do. They spent over an hour and half talking to me, and I appreciated that, especially because it meant I didn't have to be called in for a second interview -- they were thorough enough in their one meeting with me to get to know me, and that saved all of us precious time.

    Also, they didn't assign me one of those "test projects" that so many companies have design interviewees do nowadays. That made me feel that they trusted how I represented myself and my portfolio, and had respect for me as an employed professional whose time is already valuable (and who doesn't have the luxury of spending the next few days belaboring over a "test project" for them for no compensation, or even the benefit of getting feedback for the work).

    So, the respect, friendliness, and enthusiasm I saw reflected very brightly on what it would be like working there.
