    Communication Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience

    Application

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

    Interview

    First a phone interview then interviewed with four people from the PR team on the phone. Everyone was nice but some came off a bit indifferent to other cultures. The phone interview lasted around thirty minutes, and the follow up wasn't clear.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Mullen in March 2017.

    Interview

    Casual and friendly. Talked over the phone with HR for about 45 minutes in the first round, then I got a call a week or so later to conference with HR and the ECD in the second. I was offered the job at the end of the second call. They didn't try to beat around the bush or trick you, they were very straightforward and quick with their decision –a welcome change.

    Interview Questions

    • Very straightforward, no odd "google-like" questions about my Favorite Disney Princesses or anything. They asked me to give them a rundown of what I'd been doing, what kind of work I liked to do, what work I liked in the past, etc. It was more like a conversation.   1 Answer

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed at Mullen (Boston, MA) in March 2017.

    Interview

    Mullen's HR department reached out to me a few days after I submitted my resume to set up a time for me to come in, tour the office and meet the creative team managers. I went into the office, gave my name to the front desk and I was then met by a member of the HR department who gave me a tour of the space, outlined the position and the organization's hierarchy. I then met with three members of the creative team who asked me about my work experience and relevant skills.

    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.
