Media Associate Interview

Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL

Positive Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at Spark Communications (Chicago, IL) in December 2015.

Interview

I applied online, with a referral, and heard back regarding the next round (a phone screening) within a week. After my phone screening I was notified of my in-person interview two weeks later. The interview consisted of four 30 minute rounds. I talked to two Media Supervisors, a Media Director, and one final person higher up (I forget her exact position). Most of the questions were scenario based, focused on working in groups, and related to past job experiences. The entire process took 7 weeks.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Spark Communications in August 2015.

    Interview

    After applying, I heard from a recruiter about a week later to set up a phone interview. Phone interview was approx. 30 min. and asked the generic behavioral and experience questions. This interview does ask two math questions, so make sure to be ready for that. A week later, I was contacted to do an in-office interview and meet with 4 SMG employees. It was a rotational process and each interviewer had a specific interview topic: strategy, analytics, collaboration, etc. The in-office interview took about 2 hours.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Spark Communications (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Honestly I over prepared for this interview. Interviewees were nice but they were so busy that they asked pretty routine questions. Interviewed by four different people that were employees of Starcom, Tapestry, etc. Realized that this is a position that has very high-turnover so they need to fill desks quickly.

    Interview Questions

    • Tell me about about a media campaign that you felt was successful or a failure?   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. The range was 30,000-32,000.00 and I was told that I get 30,000.00 even though I had years of work experience.
