    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at GSD&M (Austin, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    I got an email saying they'd love to do a phone interview and asked for my availability. I responded with the hours I'd be available and just never heard from them. I sent a follow up email a week later asking if I was still under consideration. No response. Just seemed rude.

    Social Media Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at GSD&M (Austin, TX) in January 2017.

    Interview

    I had one brief, 30 minute phone interview, which was very relaxed and conversational. I was then asked to come into the office the next week for an in-person interview. They accidentally double-booked my interview at the same time as another candidate, so the HR Intern ended up giving me the office tour instead of the main HR person. I was supposed to interview with 6 people while there, but instead only interviewed with 3 (since the other 3 had to meet with the other candidate). The last girl who interviewed me didn't know if my interview was over or not after her session and proceeded to walk me out. I never received a follow-up email from them. I emailed one of my interviewers a few days later to see if they had a timeline in mind for when I might hear back about potential next steps, and he never responded. Very unprofessional in comparison to other companies I interviewed with at the time.

    Intern Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GSD&M (Austin, TX) in September 2009.

    Interview

    They just went through my resume, asked me relevant questions based on what I put on there and most importantly, time availability. I interviewed with 5 different people, and they all asked me about the same questions. I think they liked the qualifications on my resume and I had already gotten the job even before I walked into the office -- the in-person interview was really to see if my personality fit the team.

    Invoice Auditor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Austin, TX
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at GSD&M (Austin, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very short, informal interview with few questions. The interviewer didn't seem very comfortable interviewing, and the conference we were going to use was still occupied, so we went to an alternate location. However, the interviewer asked relevant questions and let me give a detailed reply, and spent more time answering my questions than asking me about my experience or qualifications.

    Senior Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at GSD&M in December 2014.

    Interview

    Applied, phone interview with strategy team (CSO and 2 VPs), flew me in for in person, met with ~6 people (strategy, creative and account leadership teams). It was all pretty informal, informational. I felt like it was one of those situations that you either fit the mold or you don't. Theres no way to "hack" this one, other than to be the right fit.

    Interview Questions

    • What brands I had worked on, what brands I admired, major client accomplishments, how I came to important insights, what impact they had, why GSD&M, why strategy...the usual. Someone asked me "what makes me weird" ....which I thought was cool.

      The only challenging part was that I was asked a lot of hypotheticals: "if this client wanted to so this thing, what would you say, how would you say? How would you talk them out of XYZ decisions? How do you go about selling great creative work? What if it makes them uncomfortable, how do you make them comfortable with it?

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at GSD&M (Austin, TX) in January 2014.

    Interview

    I was put in touch with GSD&M by a staffing agency. It was really more of a part-time (with potential to go full time) type position. The staffing agency gave me a lot of information on the company, and said that I would be working in the invoicing department. They were overloaded and needed some help. The interviewer was very friendly and asked standard questions.
