    Account Executive Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at OgilvyAction (Chicago, IL) in June 2013.

    Interview

    They reached out to me and said they were interested. Then I had a 20-30 min chat with HR to talk about if it would be a good fit. After that HR set up an initial interview with 3 people for 45 min each. The first team member didn't know what position I was interviewing for. The second was my boss and was well prepared. The third knew what I was interviewing for but didn't seem as prepared. It was more informal with the first and third. The second was still relaxed, but definitely had questions prepared. The third person walked me out so I didn't see HR again. Ask HR about when you will hear and any other questions before because they won't see you after they drop you to your interview room. They've requested a second round interview with more senior management. Seems very unnecessary especially because they sought me out and its not a very high position.

    Account Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at OgilvyAction (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who new enough to be dangerous but when pressed for more information could not / would not disclose due to confidentiality regarding the role and responsibilities or the client. I felt like there was a job. I just did not know what it was until after the first interview. Once I knew they liked me, the hiring manager opened up and gave the real job overview. However, it took nearly 4 months before I finished the final interview and then started at the company. Too long. At one point, I had another offer and that is what spurred action to make me the offer I needed to move from my current job.

    Interview Questions

    • " How would you manage a difficult peer? " That should have clued me into the type of culture and internal politics of the role.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked for what I needed and they gave it. I guess it was a little harder for them to find the talent they thought was important so they were willing to bend. Thankfully.
