    Web Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Publicis (New York, NY) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Only got to code screen phase. Interviewer briefly introduced himself and directed that the time spent was to complete a code screen, which required working code at end to move forward.

    I was told multiple times that the code didn't need to be pretty, just work. I was only vaguely interested in the position, and regret attempting to complete. Process could be better, encourages hacking, and doesn't factor in critical thinking skills. I question value of this screen, and the environment that encourages this behavior.

    Interview Questions

    • Implement algorithm remotely within timeframe. Algorithm wasn't too complex, just was going to be difficult to complete within time period.   1 Answer

    Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Mumbai (India)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Publicis (Mumbai (India)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    I interviewed in September 2017. They contacted me. The process began with a telephonic screening and then 2 Face to face rounds of Interviews at their head office. Received a call after 2-3 days asking for my salary slips and other documents. It seemed positive since we discussed my notice period and the urgency to join. It’s been more than a month and I still haven’t received any communication, no phone call or email, no update or feedback whatsoever. Quite surprised by this unprofessional Behaviour from the recruitment team. It’s one thing on part of the candidate in investing their time but giving them some form of hope, asking for personal employment details and leaving then leaving them hanging is another. Being a recruiter myself, I would never have any of my candidates go through a process like this. This is an highly unacceptable experience you want future candidates to go through.

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Declined Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Publicis (New York, NY).

    Interview

    The worst in-person interview experience: I arrived 15-20 minutes early for my interview and checked in with reception. Let's just say the receptionist at this company in the NY office is horrible and should be replaced immediately for lack of sensitivity or people skills. The receptionist directed me to the wrong room multiple times and "called" my interviewers and just browsed the internet and made no phone calls after reminding her multiple times. When the first interviewer finally found me more than 25 minutes late from the time I was supposed to meet with her, I had to profusely apologize for the receptionist showing me to the wrong room. This company needs to revamp the recruiting process and greet candidates rather than making you check in at reception.

    Interview

    1 premier entretien avec le manager d'équipe et un 2e avec le directeur adjoint

    Bonne impression globale de l'entreprise

    Théoriquement un 3e entretien avec les RH mais annulé car retard dans le processus de recrutement

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Publicis (Athens (Greece)) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Long but not in depth interview, focus on the appearance and the hipster dimension of it rather than the skills and qualifications and many irrelevant question violating privacy were also asked, not one of the best experiences

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Publicis (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Very long process of one day that lasted for 6-7 hours. Consisted of psychometric tests, pointless quick interview questions: which were not relevant or consisted of competencies, numerical test: which was easy, group presentation on what is marketing and developing your own marketing plan for a brief.
