    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at MSLGROUP (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    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.

    Summer Insiders Challenge Interview

    Anonymous Employee in San Francisco, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at MSLGROUP (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    Invited to a full-day "interview" that also contained presentations from different departments and went into depth about the daily work at the company. High emphasis placed on fit more than anything. This was helpful to at least me as I tried to decide between different places - the fact that I had met a decent amount of the actual workers as well as the people who would be my direct supervisor led me to choosing MSLGROUP.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at MSLGROUP.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty seamless. I had phone interviews with the HR VP and the HR Associate. They asked basic questions about my past experience. I then spoke with two Account Supervisors. They were both pleasant. My final interview was via Skype with the Managing Partner. That was a great and quick interview. Everyone was nice and helpful. I just wish they offered more incentives to those relocating, sort of shows you invest in your people.

    Interview Questions

    • What is my work style? How do I stay organized? What are my strengths and weaknesses?   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Relocation costs were really high and with no relocation or signing bonus, it was a bit too much to make happen.

I would welcome the opportunity to interview again.
