    Marketing Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Philadelphia, PA

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Masterminds Advertising (Philadelphia, PA) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Interview with two members of senior management, felt more like a conversation than an interview with a lot of room to ask questions. Cared more about who I was and what my actual experience was than my ability to answer standard interview questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Masterminds Advertising.

    Interview

    Applied online, heard back in a week. Interview was scheduled for a week later. Met with three people, all who were pretty friendly and conversational. Didn't get the job but they emailed me back letting me know their decision, which I appreciated since companies seem to enjoy being silent and leaving you wondering.

    Interview

    Came in and met with account director. Interview was more like a conversation, which was nice. I didn't feel like I was being grilled the whole time. Upon second interview, met with 4 more members of the team, including the CEO, all of whom were very friendly. My offer letter was received less than a week later.

    Negotiation

    Masterminds doesn't really negotiate. They pay what they pay.

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Masterminds Advertising (Egg Harbor Township, NJ) in April 2011.

    Interview

    After applying I received a phone call the next day. I set up and in person interview for the next week. After meeting 1:1 with an account executive I was told a decision would be made in the next two weeks. She assured me I would hear back about 2nd round interview decisions regardless of good or bad news. After waiting 3 weeks I decided to email myself and follow up about the position. I was told by the interviewer that a decision still had not been made. Three months later, I have still yet to hear.

    Account Management Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Masterminds Advertising (Egg Harbor City, NJ) in September 2010.

    Interview

    In terms of interview style, this one was an boring/simple/average as you can get. You'll get called into their office which isn't on a GPS system, it's in the middle of nowhere near AC, it's cold and all you can do around there is work. Location is crap, unless you're a compulsive gambler.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Masterminds Advertising (Egg Harbor Township, NJ) in April 2009.

    Interview

    Got a phone call from a friend working there that I maybe getting a call from their boss about a job position open. Received phone call and quickly scheduled an interview for the following day. Left myself about 45 mins extra travel time in case I got lost. Got SUPER lost! - The place is not even right on the GPS at all and is located next to Pleasantville, NJ (notorious for their daily shootings!) -- they told me it was in Egg Harbor Township, which it might be, but its close to shootingsville and right across from the are DUMP (seriously, it smells like trash there, especially on rainy days!!) ... Got there on time after asking several people for directions (no one knew where this place was at) -- interview was very quick to my surprise, got a quick tour of the place (Place is decorated pretty nice - kinda 90s tho, but still decent)- Because interview was so quick, I thought I just didnt get the job -- got a call the next day and started working the following week.

    Negotiation

    Did not negotiate anything - was told salary was firm and got the feeling negotiation would just make me a further unwanted candidate.
