    Group Resource Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at R/GA (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    I had an exploratory informational interview set up with the hiring manager from an internal referral in mid 2017. At the time the level of the role potentially available was too junior for my experience. But we'd 'keep in touch.'

    Late 2017 the actual role at the right level was posted and they went radio silent after multiple rounds of follow up. Found out they were close to closing a candidate for that role, then they fell through and the same role was reposted in early 2018. (2x now)

    After follow up from my internal connection, they were sent my information a 3rd time. I had heard they also switched applicant tracking systems and may have lost my application?

    Regardless, it's unprofessional to go radio silent on an internal referral. Next time, respond saying they're not the right fit or the role has been filled.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at R/GA (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Everyone was quick to respond and set up an interview right away. I met with three different people and they were all nice and very informative. The interview process lasted about an hour. Although, I did not get an offer is was a pleasant and informative experience. The office was very nice and it seemed like a creative environment.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at R/GA.

    Interview

    A mess. Recruiter would call, schedule an interview, and then at that date and time, no one could call in. It took a few attempts until I spoke with my future boss. I almost didn't take the job, because it made the company seem so disorganized. Then she called out of the blue after one interview and offered me the job. I was nervous but still decided to give it a shot. My boss was a very organized person so it ended up being ok.

    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Buenos Aires, AZ
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at R/GA (Buenos Aires, AZ) in November 2017.

    Interview

    After two missed remote interviews where the recruiter didn’t showed up simply saying he forgot the first one and missed scheduling the second one... I accepted going on site. I told him I was gonna be using my lunch break for that, nevertheless I had to wait 15 minutes in the lobby, be interviewed by a different person who was not fully aware of previous conversations.

    I was later interviewed by someone related to the IT department who tried to explain very smoothly that the role was not a Manager role but more of a technical role with kind of someone Jr under my watch.

    Really unprofessional to advertise a Manager role when it's really not... a waste of time.

    After 5 days and no news about them...I decided writing to the recruiter to politely put myself off the table and offered suggesting some candidates...

    I didn't even received a reply...

    If this is how they treat candidates, I don't want to be an employee under any circumstances.

    Something that helped to get out of there knowing that was a waste of my time was seeing they are using Zoom as a videoconferencing solution but not paying the Zoom rooms contract and having a keyboard/mouse on the tables to login to the desktop app on the room TV.... SO CHEAP!

    Internship Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at R/GA (New York, NY).

    Interview

    This was one of the most bizarre interview processes I've been a part of. I began by applying for a position as a design intern in New York City. Shortly thereafter, I was informed that I had been lifted from the intern pool and they were going to interview me for a full-time position. I thought this could only mean good things. After one brief half-hour interview, I was told they planned on making hiring decisions within the week. Two weeks later, I was informed that not only did I not get the full-time position, but they were moving forward with other candidates for the intern position as well.

    Online Automated Interview, super chill, not hard questions but was a little weird talking to the computer. There was enough time to answer each question and I did not feel rushed or stressed while answering.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at R/GA (Austin, TX) in April 2017.

    Interview

    About a month after applying I received an email from a recruiter to schedule a phone interview. The phone call was more of an explanation of the role but I was asked about some of my previous experience. I had two back to back on-site interviews the following week and was told I would hear back within the next week. It has now been two weeks and despite emailing the recruiter I never received anything back.
