    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Mullen.

    I received an email from a recruiter to come in for an interview. Went in and the interviewers were a pleasure to speak with and very easy going. I came out feeling very hopeful and confident, but now I am unsure of whether or not they will hire me.

    Senior Strategist Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Mullen (Boston, MA).

    Interview

    Applied through their website, and was contacted by HR a few weeks later. There was no phone screen, and I was brought in to meet with 6 people at Mullen during one, 3-hour interview period. The listing mentioned wanting an integrated planner, but the team was only concerned with folks who have worked directly on broadcast. Because my experience leans less traditional and more digital, they seemed disinterested. I was able to see and hear interviewing team members talk about me after leaving the room, so I knew they were disinterested (but also, unprofessional).

    Their strategy team is going through a lot of changes right now, and because they have so many strategy roles open, almost every member had to ask me which one I was applying for. HR didn't see me out after my interview, nor did they respond to my follow-up. Based on my experiences, I feel like I dodged a bullet. One of the people who would have been on my team made a joke about how Mullen is referred to as a sweatshop, but it can't be considered that if you love the work you do. Take that however you will.

    Print Production Interview

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Mullen (El Segundo, CA) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very simple, it was a panel-type interview, but instead of a simultaneously present panel, it was one-by-one. It was a pleasure meeting all these people, and I wish I could work at an environment where the interviews were more like conversations.

    I'm not trying to brag when I say this, but I would assume my background, qualifications and professionalism at a young age, should have made me a perfect candidate. Now if they didn't want me, I would like a little notice before a month to just say "sorry we found someone more qualified." This is more of an entry-level position, so don't tell me someone is "more qualified" when I have almost a decade of experience at 25. Please...I found it to be more of an insult because they probably wanted someone with less experience to try and pay lower. I understand all that as well, I just felt a month was a bit too long to string me along.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with the hiring manager. Primarily focused on behavioral questions, wanted to know my clients and type of work environment I succeeded in. Follow up was an in-person interview with the hiring manager, then another interview with another team member.
