    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Publicis Sapient (New York, NY).

    Interview

    WARNING - they are extremely disorganized and unprofessional in their NY office recruitment process. Do not invest your time unless 1 - HR will confirm the position is an approved headcount 2 - HR rep communicates your salary expectations in advance to the business 3 - HR will tell you who the hiring manager is versus the hiring manager is an interview panel and they collectively are negotiating your salary and title with you. They have no qualms about wasting their time and yours.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Publicis Sapient in January 2018.

    Interview

    It was exhausting - four months, 11 interviews (2 rounds in person.). In the end they went with someone more junior and I just got a call from the recruiter. The worst part was that for the final two months it was like we were almost done and I was the top candidate - it was not a forthright process. The pros were that I met a lot of the staff and overall I was impressed. The process was 100% about the company evaluating me — very little effort put to helping me understand the role or sell the company. There was also no regard for how much of my time they used and other opportunists I passed on.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Publicis Sapient (Gurgaon, Haryana (India)) in February 2018.

    Interview

    I got the call through a recruitment agency. Sapient took about 3 weeks to schedule the phone call. First call: The call came very late than scheduled time (25 mins late on a 30 minute call) and had to be rescheduled!
    Sapient took another 3 more weeks to schedule second call. Second call: The interviewer was again late by 10 minutes! This time call duration was not communicated and it went for 1 hour. Questions were pretty easy and were mostly on basic Project Management. For an experienced PM/Director level person, these would be cake walk.
    So far no response form Sapient. Overall experience has been disappointing. Looks like they were not interested in hiring itself. It's sad that HR or interviewer do not realize that they represent the company. The way they show up, doesn't reflect good on Sapient.
