    Senior Vice President Strategy Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at OgilvyOne (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was introduced by a friend directly to the hiring managers of the position. I went through three interviews with top management in the account. The interviews lasted one hour and were all very interesting. I had the opportunity to make questions, they were candid about the client's situation and they had very good feedback after meeting me. Unfortunately they decided to promote someone internally but I would love to work with the people I met.

    Interview Questions

    Easy Interview

    Application

    Interview

    I met with HR first. Director asked me a few questions about my previous job, but it really was the shortest interview that I have been on in awhile. Director literally gave me a tour of the building.

    Email Marketing Associate Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at OgilvyOne (Atlanta, GA) in July 2014.

    Interview

    Applied online through referral. HR reached out to me via phone for a preliminary and short phone interview ~15 minutes going over my resume and outlining how my qualifications would fit the position. Then had another phone interview with the person who would be my supervisor. Again, we went over my resume, but it was still very casual. I then came in for an in-person interview, and spoke with several team members. I met with 3 people (one of them being the supervisor I talked with on the phone) in a row and had varying types of interviews in each. The interviews ranged from casual conversation about life to behavioral questions regarding my resume. For the most part, I felt very confident and as though I was not being led on about receiving an offer. I received an offer via email a few days laters.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at OgilvyOne (Chicago, IL) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I didn't go through a traditional hiring process. I was contacted directly by an executive leader, we had some discussions, then I met with other key people on a couple of different occasions. Then I was passed off to the more "official" channels.

    The first part was great - it allowed me to get to know the opportunity over some time and from various angles. The second part was a mess.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    I was offered a FT position, but I negotiated to start with a contract role b/c I wanted to try out the fit before making a commitment.
