    SEO Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GMMB (Washington, DC) in May 2017.

    Interview

    A recruiter reached out via LinkedIn to schedule an initial phone interview. The phone interview did not begin on time, though it was fairly standard with a discussion of work experience, skills, past client work, accomplishments, etc. I was invited to the DC office for three, 30-minute in-person interviews after the phone discussion. None of the three started on time. The recruiter could not locate these individuals (two of the three had just started a few months ago). Did ultimately meet with all three - one brought personal problems into a so-called professional interview, discussing flood damage to apartment. Said individual also did not have sent resume available and referred to cell phone during the interview, limiting eye contact. The other had to cut the interview, which began later than scheduled as is, 10 minutes short (lasted from 11:30am -11:50am as opposed to until noon as scheduled). As far as next steps were concerned, recruiter finished by saying contact will take place within a week or feedback would be given - nothing after six weeks.

    As someone who has multiple years of experience working for highly recognized clients, I can safely say this was the worst interview experience I've had. Be very cautious when dealing with them - they are disorganized and unprofessional.

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at GMMB (Washington, DC) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Did a phone interview with a recruiter. We talked about the basics of the job. She asked normal questions about my background, experience managing, and some specifics about this role like my experience with reporting quantitative and qualitative data to clients. She also asked about salary requirements. She promised to get back to me to talk to people on the team the position was with next, but I didn't hear back.

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at GMMB (Washington, DC).

    You have two-three interviews and a writing test. One phone screen with HR, then an interview with people on the team you'd be working on and a partner. It may take 1-3 months for them to make a final decision depending on their need.

    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I interviewed at GMMB (Seattle, WA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Had an amazing phone interview with a Recruiter in DC. I felt really confident after the call and was told she would follow up the following Monday with information about next steps for an in person interview. I was very excited and looking forward to learning more about the Seattle office. The recruiter was really easy to talk to and very friendly. Following week I followed up with an email and then end of week with a phone call. 3 weeks later I still have not heard anything and no response to any of my outreach attempts. I assume I didn't get the job but I felt that after the first call it would be been nice to at least get a follow up email.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GMMB (Washington, DC) in April 2015.

    Interview

    I was invited to take part in a 30 minute phone interview. This was the first step in the process. It was merely a screening. It was a very pleasant back and forth exchange about my skill set and the role. At that time I was told a follow up one on one interview with a decision maker would happen soon. I never did.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GMMB in February 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online for the Assistant Account Executive position. I was notified through email from a HR Assistant from GMMB for a phone interview after about 2-3 weeks I've submitted the application. The interview only took about 20 minutes. The interviewee sounded like she had no interest in hiring me from the beginning; I could tell by her tone of speech. I felt like she was doing the interview because it's her thing to do. I sent follow up emails but have not heard anything from them since.
