    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

    Senior Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OgilvyOne (New York, NY) in March 2011.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter from Ogilvy and talked to her by phone, then brought in to talk to 3 ADs to discuss the different positions and my background/experience. Those were the most in-depth interviews. A third interview was with the Director, more as a formality it seemed.

    Interview Questions

    • At Ogilvy, we face a lot of strong personalities and strong opinions. Have you dealt with this before, and if so, how?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    The original recruiter who contacted me was the one who made the offer in the end - not my current manager or any of the others that I report to. They really wanted me there due to my digital background, so negotiating was easy. I stated a salary and the recruiter offered more. It was a done deal.

    Interview

    Be sure to ask the right questions. In any large organization you can enter through one door but end up working in something you weren't interested in.

    Negotiation

    Negotiate hard because once you're in your hands are tied.

    Consultant/Senior Consultant Analytics Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at OgilvyOne (New York, NY) in June 2009.

    Interview

    The new office on 11th avenue is great although the neighbourhood is quite run down and for most people who commute from outside the city it will be a bit out of the way. The scheduling and decision was quick. Nice friendly people treated me to lunch. An interviewer was off sick and I wasn't informed which left me wondering what to do and who to contact...felt like I had been stood up. Very few if any technical questions. Mostly questions revolved around previous job experience pertinent to the position I was interviewing for. Weird though that when I asked of of the interviewers about professional development he answered that it wasn't a company where one would like to stay for long. Besides usua l prepare questions on:
    1. How you made a mistake in a previous job and what steps you followed to remedy.
    2. Your top 3 professional achievements
    3. What would your last boss say about you
    4. Describe how you made recommendations to non-technical audience.
    5. What would make you leave your job in future.
    Over all an average interview and I hope positive results.
