    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at McKinney (Durham, NC).

    Interview

    I went in for several interview over the course of a couple days. All were in person with people I'd be directly working with across all departments. Everyone was pretty friendly. I have a feeling it was more of a personality check than a skills check.

    Interview Questions

    • What are your strengths, what are your weaknesses, what is your favorite ad campaign, etc. So fairly standard and straightforward interview questions.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I did not negotiate.

    Account Planning Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at McKinney.

    Interview

    Very laid back interview with 4 members of the Account Planning Department. More like a conversation. Come prepared with intelligent questions and conversation starters. They interview a lot of people for the internships in a short amount of time so try not to play it too safe, be bold, stand out and MOST IMPORTANTLY be yourself because it will show if you're not.

    Art Direction Interview

    Positive Experience
    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.

    Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at McKinney.

    Interview

    Emailed HR, got an email within 5 minutes to set up an interview, went in the next day and was interviewed by 5 different people which seemed a bit overkill as they all asked me the same thing, and was ultimately hired. But this is highly unusual in terms of speed and procedure. I just happened to have exactly the experience they needed to fill two days after someone else quit.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Negotiated, got a pay bump. Better salary compared to other smaller agencies in the area.
