    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at IPG Mediabrands.

    Interview

    I applied online through the general application and was contacted a few days later by a recruiter who asked to set up an initial first-step interview. I replied back and did not get a response for almost a full business week. Spent the next few days trying to get in contact with the person or a related employee to show my enthusiasm and qualifications for the position. Got in contact with another person in the department who seemed impressed with my initiative and said they would try and get in touch with the recruiter and would let me know by the end of the day. That person also disappeared on me. Finally got an email later from the original recruiter saying the position had been filled and he had been too busy to get back to me.

    I should've taken the hint that it wasn't possible to get the position due to the fact that they posted the internship on the 4th and said the start date was the 6th. Additionally, I should've known I most likely wasn't ever a candidate for the position considering when I finally got in contact with someone, they immediately recognized the position and seemed okay with letting me continue the interview process. it doesn't make sense that the position was filled the very next day if the recruiter was too busy to get back to me. Overall it seems like they already had a candidate or two in mind ready to start on time but they started contacting other applicants just as a safety net.

    IPG Mediabrands seems like a really cool company to intern for but their hiring process has been really frustrating for myself, as well as for other associates that I know who have also been left hanging without an answer for weeks. I'm okay with not getting a position, but stringing a qualified and enthusiastic candidate along is something else entirely.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at IPG Mediabrands (Chicago, IL) in March 2018.

    Interview

    The interview process was simple yet unclear of what direction the process would continue. It was as if I was talking to an automated machine instead of being personable with HR.

    Very quick turn around. I applied online and heard back three days later. From there an interview call was set up and then I had an in person interview at one of the companies that is under the branch of IPG Mediabrands. Overall very good internship application experience.
