Account Executive Interview

Negative Experience
Average Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Havas Worldwide (New York, NY) in July 2016.

Interview

The Talent Acquisition Manager was super friendly and nice during the screening call and took the time to walk through my work experiences and life story.

After this call, I was passed onto a Talent Coordinator who used a lot of slang in her emails and failed to confirm a time for a follow up call with the Head of team until I emailed and asked her a day before the interview.

On the day of the interview call, I was informed that the Head of team was out of town so I would speak with the AE currently on the account. During the interview, normal questions were asked but there seemed to be no genuine interest in the given answers. A few times the call fell silent so I was left not knowing if the call had dropped or there was still someone on the line.

30 minutes after the interview call, I received an email from the Talent Acquisition Manager saying "At this juncture and based on the feedback we just received, we are unable to give you further encouragement" with no feedback whatsoever. Once I asked for feedback, I was told that I wasn't "forthcoming" enough with my answers and that apparently I had said I needed a "30-60 day learning period" which I never said and would never say.

Not sure if the phone reception was bad and things got jumbled but it just made me feel negative and angry about the entire process that they would excuse me for something I didn't and wouldn't say.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Havas Worldwide (Baltimore, MD).

    Interview

    I had a phone interview with head of account management. Then I came in for an in-person interview. The interview went reasonably well. Everyone was very nice. Then after the interview, I emailed the recruiter, who is a Havas employee. She replied that they were still interviewing. Then, I was never told that I did not get selected. After taking my time to meet with them in-person, I should at least have been told they did not want to move forward. That is rude, in my opinion.

    Application

    The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Havas Worldwide.

    Interview

    Horrible. I Took a day off of work and they don't even have the common courtesy to respond back. I emailed Jenna in hr for an update after I met with them a week before and she didn't even respond back. Really inconsiderate since people have to take off of work for an interview and they couldn't even respond back. Don't waste your time
