    Assistant Media Planner/Buyer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in San Francisco, CA
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at M&C Saatchi (San Francisco, CA) in October 2015.

    Interview

    Two step interview. First one was very short, went over the details of the job, was asked about my experience.

    Second interview was more in depth. Talked with two individuals and then had to take and excel proficiency test on Pivot Tables and basic knowledge of formulas.

    Had to wait only a few days before hearing back from them with their final decision.

    Overall an easy process.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at M&C Saatchi (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    It was rather easy, I mailed the CCO directly. Took quite some time to get a reply, but we did a google hangout and just had a casual conversation about what I did. Talked about some of my projects. Talked about how I could fit in at the agency and what was expected of me. Then we had a second interview where we talked about salary and visa requirements.

    Graduate Scheme Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at M&C Saatchi.

    Interview

    Split into two halves. The first was pretty gentle and just trying to get an impression of the candidate's personality, no real wrong answers here just trying to establish that the person is a decent fit. The second was industry-related, so lots of questions about current ads, what I liked and didn't, then at the end I had to do a pretend client pitch on a poster to another candidate. Overall was pretty rigorous but fairly straightforward, no real curveballs. The two interviewers seemed almost like a good cop/ bad cop pairing but this may not have been intentional
