    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Atlanta, GA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (Atlanta, GA) in April 2015.

    Interview

    1st Contacted by Email
    2nd Phone Interview
    3rd In person interview with 2 seperate people at seperate times. 1h with each person. Total of 2 hours.
    They were really nice. Asked a lot of questions about the resume and all the past experiances. Also they ask how would you handle certain situations. Overall interview was great. The only down side was that it was very hard to get in touch with them to find out about their final decision. I finally received an email saying that the team decided to go in a different direction and that they would like to talk to me more about it. We set up the time for the call that i have never received.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (Atlanta, GA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very reasonable and relaxed as most are in the industry. Definitely ask you a lot of questions and press you on your experience versus just listening to your resume elevator pitch. Overall, very fair and standard.

    Account Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (Atlanta, GA) in February 2013.

    Interview

    The interview process was extensive and required 5+ interviews and a decent amount of follow-up. Ideal for someone with a current job looking for a change, but stressful for someone without a job looking to get hired quickly. It helps to know someone within the agency in order to get a call back; blind resume submission may not get responded to.

    Interview Questions

    • Personally did not find any of the questions unexpected or difficult. Standard interviews were my experience. However, did have one challenging interview with the "silently waiting for you to sell yourself" act. Just be fun and roll with it.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I went back and forth 4 times on the offer from JWT. I had negotiated with one person from HR, and then the offer letter did not affect the agreed upon terms, so it was re-issued multiple times before it was correct and I accepted. HR prefers to communicate via email so be prepared to have a strong written argument for what you want.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (Atlanta, GA) in September 2012.

    Interview

    One to one interview with the director and group interview with people on the social team, which can be a little bit intense. Interviewers are very nice and easy to talk to. Common questions include why are you interested in social, what social media projects have you get involved with, strength/weakness, what college classes do you like the most, what industry trends do you think is interesting, planning experience etc.

    Interview

    I interviewed with several teams and I thought they went well. I was told to follow up with the recruiter. Well, I did by email and phone several times, but to no avail. It has been several weeks and they have not had the decency to return any of my messages.

    Account Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took a week. I interviewed at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (Atlanta, GA) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I was living in Texas at the time of the phone interview but already had plans to visit Atlanta, so we set up an in-person interview as well. The phone interview lead me to believe they were interested in meeting me, but once I arrived at the office, all I got was a tour around the office and the HR person had NO questions for me, I asked me questions and got on my way. I tried to contact her several times afterwards with no response, and eventually got an automatic reply rejection e-mail. It was a horrible interview experience and does not leave me with a good impression of JWT.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (Atlanta, GA) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Organization showed interest and conducted an amiable interview by phone indicating that HR would reach out shortly to schedule an in-office interview the following week, which never happened. Shortly after following up the following week, an instant "automatically generated response" indicated that the position had been filled, which is fine, however a human response would have gone a long way.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (Atlanta, GA) in December 2009.

    Interview

    They reached out to me, found me through LinkedIn. Met with CD and Managing Partner during two different visits. Had a few phone calls with HR director and other stakeholders. All in all, the process took a few weeks. Offer was pretty solid, benefits were pretty well laid out. Wished I'd asked more pointed questions during the interview. A few "surprises" when I started.

    Negotiation

    I stated what I wanted, got exactly that.
