    PR Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at MSLGROUP.

    Interview

    Took 3+ months. Started with several phone calls, which there was no flexibility in scheduling. They then made me come to their office for one on one interviews on five different occasions, and were not flexible in those times either. Typically employers offer the ability to meet in the early morning or at the end of or after the business day when the candidate already has a full time job, but not here. Among the reasons -- some people had kids and couldn't get in until 10 and needed to leave by 5. It was highly inconvenient and inconsiderate. On one occasion I left my job in the middle of the day, went to their office for a scheduled meeting and the person I was to meet with never showed up. Waste of time. I eventually stopped pursuing it because it all seemed so dysfunctional.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MSLGROUP in March 2018.

    Interview

    Two 15-30 minute phone interviews each with one individual person. Typical interview questions, but important to know their specific client work. Was not in the same state as the position so know that other interns who were closer to the office did theirs in person, but I was not available to.

    Smooth but rightfully intensive process. Though it was a long day followed up by another set of long discussions, I was pleasantly surprised by the kindness shown across the entire staff. This is a truly passionate group of people to work with, even if my path took me a different route. My advice to all is to keep on going through the process and all steps.
