    Head of Data Science Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MRM//McCann (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Had a recruiter looking to place me, with a pretty good fit for an exec level job here. He sent my info, was told they were very interested and had no serious candidates. Then they messed around for over two weeks squabbling over the most basic NDA ever written, and constantly rescheduled calls. Finally when they got the paperwork signed, they claimed they weren't interested as they had an internal and external candidate, and they didn't want to interview a third candidate. One big, unprofessional runaround from their HR.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at MRM//McCann (New York, NY).

    Interview

    It was low stress and easy. For this entry level position, they just want to make sure you seem like you have your head on straight and that you fit the culture of the team and the company. There should only be 1, maybe 2 meetings and they last 1-3 hours.

    Software Design Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Birmingham, MI
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MRM//McCann (Birmingham, MI) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I interviewed for a software development position (I'm being intentionally vague). Most of the interview process was straightforward and pleasant. It began with a basic phone screen from HR. Then I had an onsite interview with the manager of the position and another person from the team. They asked good questions. They weren't really trying to stump me but more to learn about my background. It was more of a conversation. They were both cordial.

    Everything was going well up until the salary negotiation. HR informed me they would give me an offer but the salary was $15K less than what I had asked for up front. The HR woman gave a number of baffling and dubious reasons why. Those reasons include:

    1) I'm white. She said the company was trying to be more diverse and the fact that I'm a white male worked against me.

    2) I mentioned earlier in the hiring process that I recently experienced a tragedy. She later justified the low salary offer by saying money shouldn't matter to me after what I had been through.

    3) She said I didn't interview well and would have to accept a lower level position. This was later contradicted by another HR person who said I did interview well and they just had a salary cap for the team.

    4) My salary requirement was above market average for my skills and experience. This is false because I had received two other offers the same month that met or exceeded my salary requirement.

    They eventually budged a bit on salary but by then my mind was made up and I rejected their offer. The bottom line is MRM does not pay well and they'll come up with bizarre reasons to explain why. I've read and heard that MRM HR department has other shady practices as well.

    Freelance Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Salt Lake City, UT
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MRM//McCann (Salt Lake City, UT) in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was really impressed with their communications throughout the process and how polite and professional they were.

    I had some short email communications leading up to the interview. Met with a few different CD's they told me about upcoming projects and timelines. The interview was focused on my portfolio and skill set. All the questions were very relevant to the role and it was a relaxed but professional atmosphere.

    I think they are accustom to working with freelancers and know what they are looking for out of a designer.
