    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at McKinney (Durham, NC) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I had already interned at McKinney once before this interview process so it was relatively easy. You meet with 2/3 people in your relative field and it is a more "tell us about yourself" interview. They find a quiet place in the agency and have a honest conversation. The employees seem like they are really trying to get a read on you which is nice. Just present yourself as someone who they want to hire and you should make a impression.

    Director Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at McKinney (Durham, NC) in March 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was mostly positive. All of the up-front interviews were handled via Skype or phone. All of those went well (despite some tech difficulties). The in-person interviews went very well, too. My very cursory in-person meeting with my eventual boss should have been a warning sign, though. It was a colleague, not my future boss, who took me to lunch on that "face-to-face" day. It was awkward and strange to have an interview lunch with someone who I wouldn't report to. I finally met with my future boss for a very brief 5 minutes at the very end of the full interview day. There was no real conversation, questions, etc. Just a little chit chat.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at McKinney (Durham, NC) in January 2013.

    Interview

    I had spoken with multiple people in the agency which basically got the through the first round and into interviews. Interviewed with two different people that I would potentially be working with. Both were very nice and they let me know when I would be informed about their decision. One of them gave a short tour for me and it looks like an awesome place to work.

    Intern (Mtern) Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at McKinney (Durham, NC) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I got my interview based on a personal connection from one of my professors at school. Ordinarily, you obtain an interview by way of applying at their website, but in any case, the interview took place on-site, and was proctored in a sort of take-a-tour and ask questions way. I interviewed with not only my boss, but also the director he works under, and it was very casual, focusing on personal life and goals, as well as the culture of the company. They are simply trying to figure out if you are reliable, creative, and to the best of their ascertaining, talented. McKinney is a wonderful, wonderful company to work for, so if you are fortunate enough to get the position, take full advantage of the opportunity!

    Interview Questions

    • There were no difficult questions on my interviews, only that they try to understand how you think. Make sure to be articulate, informed about McKinney projects and success stories, and be well-versed in the culture. DO NOT dress up for the interviews -- it would be very awkward to seem overly-dressy for the interview, since it is a casual and creative environment.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    You must exchange the internship for college credit. They have a sort of orientation thing where they set up your computer and get you familiar with the process and the office. How much time you spend in the office is between you and your boss (you'll want to spend time in the space, though, because it's incredible!), but be forewarned that they require 15 hours per week at minimum.

Conversation was casual- they were both extremely easy to talk to- no questions that were out of the blue- Whats my favorite brand? What is my favorite commercial right now? Why did I want to intern with McKinney? Why did I want to work no that specific account, etc.
