    Planning Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Starcom MediaVest Group (New York, NY) in October 2014.

    Interview

    Initial phone interview with general HR person, and then a second phone interview with the person I would actually be working for. They said I would hear back about a second interview within 2-3 weeks but it took them about a month. Second phone interview was more detailed and went into the specifics of the department I'd be working in if I got an offer.

    Associate Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Starcom MediaVest Group (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    My resume was forwarded by a mutual friend. HR Reached out to me with a few available phone interview times. We chose a time and when it came to that day and time, about 20 minutes passed the interview time so I sent an email. She had wrote down the wrong time so we rescheduled. The interview was very situational, "tell me about a time when.." type questions. After the interview she told me it would take between 1-3 weeks to hear back.

    Two weeks passed by so I sent her an email to follow up, to see if there was any type of update and she responded there was no update. Three weeks after the interview, still no word. After about 5 weeks I sent another email and got no response. About a month and a half after, I got a general email from HR saying they went forward with someone else - perfectly fine. I then sent the same HR woman ANOTHER email asking for feedback on my interview and why I wasn't considered for an in person interview. Now about another month has passed and haven't heard a response.

    Very unprofessional - I expected to at least been responded to and offered feedback. I was applying for an entry level position so it would have been nice to know what I was lacking.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Starcom MediaVest Group (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    It was an almost half-day interview with various departments. I sat with 3 managers total (it was an itinerary where once you were done with one, another would come pick you up and take you to their office) and at the end of the day, the HR coordinator took myself and 3 others to lunch at House of Blues. In the end, I declined because their starting salary was $32k...and I was offered another job (that better fit my interests) that same week which paid more so I took the other instead.
