    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at RPM Advertising (Chicago, IL) in May 2011.

    Interview

    I received a call from HR. She spoke to me over the phone. Since I was definitely qualified for the job, she brought me in to meet with the supervisor and a VP. That was an interview with both of them at the same time. They both fired off questions to me. I knew someone who worked there so I kind of knew what to expect. My answers seemed to meet their expectations. Then I went home and waited a couple of days. They gave me a call back the same week and made me an offer.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at RPM Advertising (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    I did a phone interview first then I was later asked to come in and do an in person interview with the team. The whole process took about 4 weeks.

    Copywriter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at RPM Advertising (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    HR invited me in for an interview with the CD. I was told that I would be required to complete a series of headlines and would be compensated for my time. I met with the CD and it went relatively well, completed the headlines and then met with the owner. Process took about 3 hours. All was well.

    Later that week, I called HR to follow up about compensation for the headlines and about a decision timeline. All communication to that point had been over the phone, I assumed this was the preferred method of contact. HR was very unprofessional and hung up the phone shortly after "hello".

    Never received compensation. Never received update about position.
