    Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mindshare (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The HR recruiter was very rude and gave hints that she had a "certain" applicate in mind for senior positions. She made the process very disjointed as the hiring managers requested I come in to meet the team. The hiring managers were great and I felt a mutual respect. Of course that same recruiter was non responsive and made my follow up quite unpleasant. I would recommend Mindshare refresh some of their of antiquated HR staff and get a team that is more inclusive (age, nationality, and sex). Save yourself a future lawsuit.

    This was a round of seven interviews with seven teams looking for a new assistant. with each team came the same questions as the last and they seemed to be interested in hearing about you, but not so much your qualifications. Questions came from a paper like they had just printed them off.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mindshare (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Very informal interview process. Recruiter reached out, phone call and then went to the office to meet the team. The interview was merely a conversation in general about my work past and some about the structure of the team. The interviewers did not seem to have set questions but rather just came in with a copy of my resume. They were all easy to talk to.

    Reasons for Declining

    At the end of the day, the role was good and the pay was competitive. I wanted to move my career in a different direction than pure agency. As a side note, their benefits were not very good.

    Databytes (Data Analytics) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Mindshare (Chicago, IL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    I originally applied late Feb and got an email in April regarding a phone interview

    To my surprise, the email disclosed that I was considered a finalist for the summer internship program based off my resume and that they wanted phone interview which I scheduled 2 days later after communicating via email with the hiring manager. The phone interview itself was very casual as the hiring manager asked me simply why I wanted to intern at Mindshare and from there it became a relaxed conversation. After conversing for about 20 - 30 mins about the program and the company, I was given an offer which I accepted.

    Social Media Strategy Manager (North America) Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Mindshare (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    A phone screen with HR (45 minutes), A phone screen with the Associate Director (45 minutes) and a face-to-face meeting with the Associate Director and VP (1 hour).

    The end of the process was horrible. I had a great interview, invested a ton of time in the process (And was even told after my final interview that I was more than qualified and had great enthusiasm for the job).

    Outside of being a tad bit nervous in my interview, I believed the team was experienced enough to understand that I really wanted the job and not to take my nerves too seriously (I was wrong).

    After my final interview, I stayed in touch with the in-house recruiter but immediately was turned off that the Associate Director and VP informed the recruiter that they were moving on with other candidates, because they felt I wasn't a good fit for the position or team (This is after the Associate Director told me I was qualified and had the right enthusiasm for the role). They even lied and said my answers were not in-depth enough (I gave them more information, ideas, and details than most do for a mid-level social media manager role). I would have respected them more, if they said they didn't feel like it was a good personality fit.

    Overall, I think this is probably a very slow-pace team, even though they presented the role and department as fast-pace. The role has been open since January 2016, and there doesn't seem to be a lot of activity on the social media platforms. They also don't seem urgent to hire anybody either, even though they said they are looking to fill the role ASAP and the Associate Director mentioned multiple times that she was drowning in her own work load.

    I think they are somewhat unsure of what they want, and after their complaints about the person who had this role before, I wonder if they might be the problem and not the applicants / past employee. I might have dodged a bullet, and I think my interest in a fast-pace environment, heavy work load and my overload of knowledge scared them away...along with my nerves. It wasn't a good fit, but something to keep in mind for current and future applicants.

    Anonymous Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Mindshare (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    There was an email sent with 10 questions you had to answer and send back to company. Next, there was a phone interview. The final interview (in my experience) was a Skype interview that lasted about 3 minutes. The only reason why I declined my offer was because I never had an in-office interview. I was not sure what the office was like, other then what people said on this website. If I had met the people and liked the atmosphere, I would have chosen this opportunity over the one I accepted, but unfortunately that was not the case. Also, when I found out that I had been accepted for the internship, I had less than 48 hours to make my decision. The interview process gave me no insight into the actual company, and with a company this large, I would have liked a more in-depth interview experience.
