    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi Group (New York, NY) in April 2009.

    Interview

    My interviewer was very cool and collected and represented Saatchi and Saatchi to the T. The interview was very informal and friendly, and I was asked to go through my resume along with where I saw myself 5, 10, and 20 years down the line. My suggestions to prepare for this interview process is to know your resume along with some good stories to tie into it, make them laugh and your sold.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Shanghai, Shanghai (China)
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi Group (Shanghai, Shanghai (China)) in January 2010.

    Interview

    The process is short. I sent the resume to the HR, and then two interviews came. The first one was with the HR, and just some basic questions were asked (e.g. the feasible working time, the description of my school program, etc.). The second was with the one of the Account Director, with more specific questions about advertising, such as the understanding to the role of Account Department in an angency.

    Interview Questions

    • What will you do if you cannot reach any consensus with a client you're talking with?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    Not much, since it is just a paid part-time internship position. The working time is the only flexible thing can be negotiated.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi Group (Singapore (Singapore)) in July 2013.

    Interview

    Sent an email to their HR who then forwarded it to their Regional Account Director who interviewed me the very next day. Was also interviewed by one other Regional AD. Interview was casual, and had the standard questions- strengths and weaknesses, why Saatchi, tell me about yourself, tell me about your personality. They also asked questions about my resume. The second interviewer asked pretty much the same, but also let me know about the job details.
