    Account Supervisor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Ketchum (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Working with recruiter, phone interview, followed by meeting three members of the team together for one hour (though I was told I would meet separately for 1/2 hour each with four members); Lots of back and forth with what clients needed work before the interview was set up; I was put off by the team members who didn't smile or greet me positively; I am not a fan of panel interviews, especially because the two less senior people really deferred to the most senior person and were disengaged. They also talked a lot about the person who was previously in the role and how sad they were they left, which put me off. I sent a follow-up email and did not get a response from any team member.

    Interview Questions

    • The interview started with a challenging question about what I would do in a particular client situation. It did not feel like there was a progression that started with my background or experiences so I was taken off guard.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ketchum (Chicago, IL) in September 2016.

    Interview

    Applied online and two weeks later received an email to setup a phone interview. The phone interview was conducted by HR and just asked basic questions about my work experience. The following day I was asked for my availability to come in and interview with the team. I put together a 15-minute presentation highlighting my previous, relevant work. After that, I was asked questions by team members and I was able to ask them questions about the internship. I received an offer the next day!
