    Producer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi Group (Torrance, CA) in May 2019.

    Interview

    The process took six weeks in total, from the day I applied online to the day I received an offer. A recruiter from Saatchi & Saatchi contacted me via email the day after I applied online. We had a conversation over the phone five days later. The recruiter asked questions about what I was looking for in my next job and what I'd been working on at my current job. At the end of our conversation, the recruiter said she wanted to bring me in for in-person interviews with the team. The call lasted around 25 minutes. Five days later, the recruiter called me to discuss salary and see about my availability. The following day, she contacted me via email with a schedule of my in-person interviews with the team. In the schedule, there were three 1-on-1 interviews and one panel interview with three people. The in-person interviews were to be three days later. On the day of the scheduled interviews, two of the team members who were to be in the panel interview were out of office, so I had four 1-on-1 interviews instead, each lasting half an hour. They were very straightforward. The interviewers did have questions, but they also spent much of the time talking about the work. The day after these interviews, the recruiter called me to let me know that the team liked me and that the director of the group wanted to meet me. He was one of the two panel interviewers who was absent the previous day. We scheduled an interview that took place the following business day. It lasted half an hour and was pleasant. I answered a few questions, but this interview, like the others, seemed to be more about vibe and fit. Fourteen days later, the recruiter called me to let me know that the team was unable to extend an offer because they needed budget approval from the finance department. She assured me that she would reach out to me again in three to four weeks. In fact, she called me ten days later to extend the offer. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. It can be frustrating when recruitment takes this long, but the recruiter remained transparent and responsive throughout the process.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi Group in April 2019.

    Applied online. They ask you to upload/email a video that asks you to talk about yourself, why you want to intern for Saatchi & Saatchi, and what do you like about advertising. I heard back after a week. A recruiter set up a screen call, and then possibly an office visit. Recruiter is helpful with putting you in your preferred department based on availability of positions.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi Group (Dallas, TX) in February 2018.

    Interview

    Recruiter reached out to me on LinkedIn about the position. We had a phone screening a few days later. About a week later, she called and said she wanted me to go to the office for an in-person interview. Went to the Dallas office for 2 one-on-one interviews. A few days later, HR wanted to set up 2 additional interviews which were via Skype with people from the LA office. Each Skype call was about a week apart due to scheduling conflicts. A few hours after the final Skype interview ended, I received a call from HR with an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi Group.

    Interview

    The interview process was pretty traditional, consisting of 3 separate interviews. First, I met with the two supervisors that I would report to directly. On the second interview, I met with upper management and other staff in the office. Finally, I met with the supervisors from my first interview, for what they called a "vibe check", I guess just to make sure that we would gel. The process was pleasant and professional and all three interviews were conducted over the course of two weeks. Just be yourself and communicate open and honestly and they will love you!
