    Budget Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi Group in May 2017.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who was very knowledgeable about the interview and hiring practices. About two weeks after her phone discussion, I was referred to the hiring manager.

    The questions were straightforward. "How do you resolve a problem?" Or "Can you work with Senior Management?" It lasted about 45 minutes. I felt relaxed.

    The next day, I received a follow-up email from the recruiter. After a week, I checked again and found out they chose someone with ad agency experience but would keep me in mind.

    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.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi Group (New York, NY) in July 2011.

    Interview

    I interviewed with four different people at Saatchi, two ADs, HR and head of Digital Strategy. There were two positions available, and after two interviews, they let me know that they thought I was a strong candidate for one of them. Everything was going swimmingly. I loved the people, I was well within my comfort zone, job-wise, and who doesn't love the Saatchi name. Then I got the news that I needed to speak to the client, and the AD gave me a little pep talk about how to position myself, which I thought was a sign I was pretty much in. So I had the call with the client, and it seemed to go really well. I was practically writing my "I'm leaving" speech in my head (who doesn't do that?). Then I got a call from the recruiter that they were going to pass on the offer. I tried to get some sort of feedback, but couldn't get a word out. It must have been a personality thing with the client. Who knows. But everyone at the agency seemed really smart, nice and normal.

    Interview Questions

    • I tend to be very busy and am sometimes unavailable. What would you do if you needed me (the client) to sign off on something by noon, but you couldn't reach me?   1 Answer
