    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Westerville, OH

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at GSW Marketing & Advertising (Westerville, OH) in January 2016.

    Interview

    I applied online and was contacted to do a phone screen. The recruiter was very friendly and seemed interested in providing helpful information about the company and positions. Several weeks later I was asked to come in to do a series of 1 on 1 interviews with four different managers. Having access to four different members of the team on one day is a great opportunity except that they all asked basically the same questions. Some seemed to be mostly interested in getting inside information about what my current agency does.

    Ultimately after being assured that I have all of the qualities they are looking for and told multiple times during the process that they would be in touch soon, nothing developed. Even when I followed up they would say I was still one of their top candidates. I decided to move on since I wouldn't want to work for a company that gives people the run around instead of being professional and forthright. Fast forward four months and they still have the position listed as open.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GSW Marketing & Advertising.

    Interview

    Very easy interview process. I met with about 4 people, one after another, for 1/2 hour each. Standard interview questions about your background and why you want to work there, etc. I got the sense they were interviewing more for a fit into the company culture than for an actual skill set.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at GSW Marketing & Advertising (Columbus, OH) in December 2009.

    Interview

    This was a group phone interview. The interview was short and to the point. The people seemed friendly and genuine. They were easy to talk to. However the interview felt a bit formal or corporate. There was no problem answering any of my questions and I did get the information I needed. I got impression that company is more account driven rather than creative driven.
