    Vice President Account Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RAPP (Dallas, TX) in September 2014.

    Interview

    I was introduced to the hiring manager via a mutual friend/colleague. We spoke on the phone and had instant chemistry and arranged to meet at the agency. I interviewed with two department heads and spent additional time with the hiring manager. I received a call from HR 3 days later to discuss compensation and the next day received an offer letter via email.

    Junior Project Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at RAPP (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Contacted quickly after submitting application online. Initial screening call with recruiter was shockingly short (10min) and led to a phone interview with head of department. When I got to the main phone interview, I was immediately informed the role required prior pharma experience--which was not mentioned any where in the job description nor brought up by the recruiter.

    All said, it took almost two weeks to have two phone calls. Could've been easily avoided by either a clear job description or better communication between internal departments.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RAPP.

    Interview

    I had a Skype interview with four members of the team. I had several marketing and media experiences before. Overall interview was pretty chill. They asked some fun questions but also some unordinary questions that me and my co-workers didn't really see the point.

    Strategy Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at RAPP (Dallas, TX) in May 2016.

    Interview

    Was nervous for the interview but ended up having a great discussion with two account executives who were enthusiastic to meet my curiosity about agency life with informative answers. I was asked to an interview in person before having a phone interview. I walked away not only having a greater understanding of the role but feeling confident it was something I wanted to pursue.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RAPP (San Francisco, CA) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Kinda scrambled, and thrown together. They cancelled on me once before having me interview with the wrong person. Then they had technical difficulties. But overall I felt like I had a good idea of what I was getting myself into.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at RAPP (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Just a basic background check talking about previous experiences and what you are interested in learning at RAPP and how you see yourself contributing to other interns. Super casual, all you have to do is be yourself and say that you know this and that about being in an advertisement atmosphere.

    Marketing Data Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RAPP.

    Interview

    Unprofessional is the word here. Roughly half of the email correspondence in setting up the initial phone screening had her use the wrong first name. Upon finalizing a time with their recruiter I received a phone call just over 15 minutes late with no apology other than as she was in her car the signal will likely drop in the garage.

    Yes, the signal dropped and yes, she was in her car. That was a first.

    The questions from the get go were more confrontational than anything as though challenging my 15 years of experience as a data analyst in a variety of industries. That I would need to be okay not being front and center with clients (I prefer it, actually) only to retort with needing to sometimes fill in for an account manager as necessary (of course).

    And as she was driving, there was no access to either my resume or notes pertaining to my background that could be referenced.

    It was clearly the end of her day and interviewing me was a a clear formality to check off her to do list.

    Follow up emails garnered zero response and must say that I may have dodged a bullet.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at RAPP (El Segundo, CA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Consisted of a Skype interview with three members of the team. I had previous internship experience in media. This is an area they do not offer an internship in, so they probed about why I was seeking an internship with them. Asked a few "fun" questions. If you could be any animal which would you be and why? If you were stuck in an island, etc. Overall friendly interviewers. Response took about 7 days upon which I was told they had gone with a better qualified applicant.
