    Interview

    1 Recruiter screen followed by 5 onsite interviews. Each interview was 30 minutes. 4 interviews were behavioral and 1 technical. The technical interview is pretty easy with 3 sql questions and 3 excel questions and 1 open ended questions. A lot of regression analysis is used at GroupM and so many questions revoled around regression analysis using digital media. It is important to know the key terms used in digital media such as impressions, conversions, DSP, RTP, SEO etc.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at GroupM (New York, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    The HR manager contacts me via LinkedIn, we talk over the phone for a while and she refers me to the hiring manger. Then, the interview consists of a roughly 45 min 1:1 onsite interview with my future direct supervisor, and a 30 min phone interview with a oversea VP a week later. It took another two weeks before I hear back from them with a rejection from the same HR over the phone. The interview is not very hard, most of questions focus on my resume and past experience. They also give me a lot of detailed description about the position, which is really helpful.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at GroupM in August 2014.

    Interview

    Got a call from the recruiter directly, but that position has been hold after the first round of interview. The same recruiter contacted me again after 2 months. The on-site interview was conducted by 4 people, the first round is really tough, not the question itself but the interviewer's attitude. The rest of the interview went super smooth and great. But after two weeks, I haven't heard anything back from them, they didn't respond my follow up email either.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at GroupM in June 2017.

    Interview

    Even though it was a HR interview, it was too the point, curt and technical. Since I am an international student requiring visa sponsorship in the future, the HR manager asked me scenario based questions incase my H1B didnot go through, he wanted to know what I would do. The interviewer is a no BS kind of a person and asked questions that just cut to the chase

    Interview Questions

    • He asked me to explain in depth about the projects I had handled pertaining to my skillset   Answer Question
