    Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at GroupM (New York, NY) in January 2018.

    Interview

    Multiple phone conversations. One in-person interview. Technical test.

    Overall, the impression I got from group M was very unprofessional. They uncomfortably focused heavily on my appearance, asked me inappropriate questions, and made me feel uneasy. The last person I talked with had an 'i'm too busy and good to be interviewing you' approach, which was unfortunate as I had prepared immensely and was anticipating answering real interview questions. I left with a bad impression of the company, and would advise others to stay away.

    Media Planner Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at GroupM (New York, NY) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The process was fairly quick, about three weeks from interview to offer. First came the phone conversation with HR. About 2 weeks later I was invited to interview with the team lead. Three days after the interview, I received an offer. The HR contact was helpful and very kind throughout the process. Interview lasted 2+ hours with the director and then with HR. Easy questions, less about the role and more culturally focused.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. I interviewed at GroupM (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Went in to their offices, met with one manager in the accounting department. She asked all the typical interview questions (ie, what are your strengths, weaknesses, ideal working environment). She had a strong personality so at first the interview was a little intimidation, but overall she was very nice and made me feel more comfortable at the end. Later I met with who would be my supervisor. She described what a normal workday would consist of, what type of accounts they manage, how they go about billing, etc.

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at GroupM (New York, NY) in August 2017.

    Interview

    Got sent on the interview through my temp agency, but wasn't told what the position was until half way through the interview. When I got there, the person I was meant to interview with wasn't even in that day so they had to find someone at the last minute. I was kind of relieved when I didn't get the job.
