    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 8 weeks. I interviewed at McCann Worldgroup (New York, NY) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I had a phone screen, followed by 3 different on-site interviews. I met with about 7 different team members, who were all bright and easy to talk to. The whole process lasted about two months. There were long periods of radio silence between each interview round. Ultimately McCann went with an internal hire for the role.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McCann Worldgroup.

    Interview

    HR is not very professional. I had gone to an interview and was there for 3 hours interviewing and testing and HR didn't have the respect to even get back to me after a follow-up.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at McCann Worldgroup.

    Interview

    Applied online and within a few days received an email for initial phone screen. Made it to the second round of phone interviews, had a 2 hour slot and spoke with 3 different people. It was a fairly easy interview, just wanted to get to know me and my working style. After this, I followed up on what the next steps were. Each time I followed up, it was days before I heard back with some reason to why no one had been able to make a decision. In a response email, they'd say let's speak again at the end of the week, I would follow up, and again no response for several days. I emailed one last time and never got a follow up, which can be frustrating seeing as it sounded like good news at first, but then went straight to radio silence. This back-and-forth was a good month, maybe 5 weeks long.

    Interview

    6 different interviews. they all lied about how much overtime was expected. of course anyone would say "yes i can do overtime here and there" but you're not expecting to be working 100+ hour weeks including 2-4AM nights on WEEKDAYS and WEEKENDS. many of my coworkers had to cancel trips, concerts, family vacations, etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McCann Worldgroup (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The recruiter was late in calling AND seemed seemed disinterested the whole time. He just read questions off a sheet. There was no interaction or conversation, I may as well have been talking to an automated system. A lot of red flags and didn't have a good feeling about the company from this early interaction.

    Integrated Producer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at McCann Worldgroup (New York, NY) in September 2018.

    Interview

    I have never been through a more unprofessional process. I was contacted by McCann HR who saw my profile on LinkedIn. Exec producer postponed first Skype interview by 4 hours right when it was supposed to happen. Then, after interviewing with the client ,HR set up a second call with the Exec producer to review some additional questions I had after meeting the client. The Exec producer NEVER called me at the scheduled time and did not have the decency to apologize or even have someone from HR contact me to let me know what happened. They didn't seem to have a clear outline of what they were really looking for with this position.
