    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harrison and Star (New York, NY) in May 2016.

    Interview

    I came in 3 different times and met with all the team members for the account I would be working on. The process was very laid back and gave me a true feeling of what the expectations for the position were and how the team dynamic was.

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Harrison and Star.

    Interview

    Relatively straightforward interview. I got asked all the questions that you should be prepared for (why do you want to work for Harrison and Star, what's your greatest weakness, etc). I had a few questions about how I approach a design problem, and so on. Recruiter was friendly, and the interview lasted maybe 7-10 minutes. I got accepted a few weeks later after the interview, and I had a good internship experience. :)

    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harrison and Star (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I submitted my resume and was contacted by one of the recruiters. Went through an initial phone screen with routine, common questions. Came in for an initial interview the next week to meet with the hiring manager. Came in for an additional interview later that week to meet with the department head and other employees who were going to be working on my team. Received a phone call at the end of the week letting me know that I got the job. They allowed me to give 2 weeks to the employer I had been working with.

    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Harrison and Star (New York, NY) in May 2014.

    Interview

    I first had a phone call with someone from HR and she set up my next interview. I spoke to three different people on the team, but they made me visit the office three times instead of scheduling my interviews for the same day. It did seem like everyone really liked working at the company and many people had been there for a very long time (which is not so typical in this industry).

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harrison and Star (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I applied for the position online, and was called by an HR Representative. I was brought in for an interview for an oncology account, but unfortunately did not receive that position. The HR Rep was SO friendly and said with my experience she really wanted to get a position with the company, so that same week of hearing the bad news, she set me up on another interview with another oncology account. I met with the Senior AE and the VP, Group Account Services and was asked to walk them through my resume, they told me the position. Nothing was really unexpected or out of the ordinary.

    Negotiation

    They offered me $50,000, but I pushed back to $55,000. Then, after getting manager's approval (since it was over $50k) they offered me $53,000 and I accepted.

    Senior CopyWriter Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Harrison and Star (New York, NY) in September 2013.

    Interview

    Met with 3 people. They weren't really even that interested in my portfolio. All seemed ok, but the place in general seemed kind of dull, not much creative flair, boring and quiet. No one really seemed really excited about the work they were doing. However, those were just my first impressions. Needless to say, I was more impressed by other places I interviewed with.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 9+ months. I interviewed at Harrison and Star (New York, NY) in January 2013.

    Interview

    Met with the teams on several rounds. First round was meeting with immediate team including account and copy and art. In the second round met with the senior leadership and in the final round met with the client teams for 2 hours. The process spanned several months and was exhaustive due to the client expectations and a pending relaunch under a brand new account team.
