    Service Specialist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Jack Morton (Detroit, MI) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through their website and received a call for an interview about two weeks later. The first interview was with their head of Human Resources. They accommodated my schedule very nicely and the interview lasted around 25 minutes. It was a general interview to figure out if I fit the position and the company. It went very well and I was told someone would be in contact in a week. I never heard anything from them for 9 days so I called and left a message. I never heard back so I sent an email 11 days after the interview but never received an reply. Over three weeks after the initial interview I received an email asking for a second interview. This time it was with the head of Production Services. I replied within the hour of my availability but did not receive a reply for 4 days. I finally received a reply and the second interview was set up. Once again, they accommodated my availability very well. The second interview lasted around 40 minutes and went especially well. I was told I would here from them in a week. 8 days later I was informed that I did not receive the position. The whole process took over 5 week from the first interview to the end result.

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Jack Morton.

    Interview

    It all happened so fast. I applied and a few days later I had a phone interview. A few days after that I was asked in for an in-person interview with 6 people. The interview took about an hour. About 2 days after that I was offered the role. In total, it took about a week and half. After dealing with interview processes that take months this process was refreshing.

    Application

    Interview

    The hiring process was fairly standard, starting with a phone interview with their corporate office and then a follow up in-person interview in the actual office I applied to. Only problem, after the interview in-person, they never contacted me back. I sent numerous follow up interviews and thought the process actual interview went well, but never heard a response.

    Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Jack Morton (San Francisco, CA) in August 2016.

    Interview

    Very interesting process. Spoke with two offices. One seemed very rushed and eager to get things going (like start tomorrow!) and the other seemed very lax and less clear if they could bring me on. Both took a nice amount of time to get to know me and introduce me to others in their office.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Jack Morton (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    The role services two SVP's so the structure was as follows:

    SVP # 1 - 30 minutes

    We mostly discussed how my experience applies to her department. I asked questions about her preferences and software requirements for the roll. I was lucky to already have some familiarity with one of the databases she mentioned. During a lull in the conversation, I finally gave her my resume and she got excited about my school background. She gave me pointers for the rest of the interview.
    2 HR Representatives - 30 minutes

    We mostly discussed culture and what I was looking for in an employer. We also discussed me as a person. We shared a few laughs and it was very easy going.

    SVP #2 - 30 minutes

    We discussed her role within the company and how I could assist her. It was more of a personal conversation then an interview. We discussed our similar interests and I asked a few questions based on my online research.

    Account Manager Interview

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Jack Morton.

    Interview

    Sent in resume and was called for in person interview. Process was easy. Seems they were looking for someone that had done the exact same job for their agency. Very stuck on buzz words and individuals that were deep into creative.
    No return phone calls or follow up by hr or hiring manger. I guess courtesy has gone by the wayside.
