    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Starcom MediaVest (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Started out with a simple phone interview. Very informal, mainly speaking back and forth about the details of this job, and why I want to work for Starcom. Then I was emailed a couple weeks later to come in for an in person interview. Met with 4 different employees, each a higher level. Be sure to come with important questions to impress them in order to fill in any time left during each interview.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Starcom MediaVest.

    Interview

    The process was efficient and informative. I was notified within 24 hours of submitting my resume to schedule my phone interview; and within another 24 hours after my phone interview to schedule my in person interviews. I was notified within just a few days with my offer. Overall one of the smoothest interview processes I experienced, which spoke well for the company. I interviewed with ~4-6 people in total, and each focused on a different skill area (leadership, strategic thinking, efficiency, etc.)

    Interview Questions

    • Behavioral questions - working through ambiguity; how you manage multiple priorities; how you work in a team, when you led a team, etc...   Answer Question

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Starcom MediaVest (Chicago, IL) in August 2016.

    Interview

    It was a 2 step interview process. First, I was interview over the phone. Just a brief introduction of myself and my experience, very basic questions. Second, I was interview by 4 different staff members, all from different levels within the company. The first couple of people who interview me were very conversational. However, the last two were asking more behavioral and technical interview questions.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Starcom MediaVest (Chicago, IL) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Had two screening interviews and then one final day in house where I interviewed with 4 different people. Pretty standard stuff, I wouldn't be too worried if you have any agency/media/marketing experience that you can talk about. But be warned the salary that they offer is pretty damn low relative to other similar positions and I ended up turning down the offer because of that
