    Director Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Starcom Worldwide (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Interviews with four people, back to back, were scheduled 2 weeks in advance, day of the interview, I receive an email that is asking to change the timing of the third interview, but the first interview is listed as earlier than the original schedule I received and a few hours from when I received the email. I sent the original email with schedule , agree to whatever changes are necessary but ask for an immediate update to the schedule. One hour before the new time I am supposed to be there, I receive the update and go to the interview. The first interviewer - head of the team cancels and sends the person currently in the role to talk to me, then I have a 30 minute 'break' in their lobby until the next person can meet me , who is late. I walked out after 2.5 hours knowing that this was not a real interview and that I had taken a half day from my current job to provide insights and answer questions for a team who had already decided who was filling the role. One week later, I received a call from the recruiter - who was very professional and not the one who set up the scheduling - that the role was being filled internally.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Starcom Worldwide (Chicago, IL) in June 2017.

    Interview

    First was a twenty minute phone call with behavioral-based questions. Followed up with an email asking to fly out to Chicago for in-person interview (not reimbursed, but they tell you that upfront). In-person interview was about 3 hours total, meeting with 4 different employees for about 45 mins, each person being higher up than the previous. Was told it would take about a week to hear back which was accurate, give or take a few days. Email asked for 15 min phone call the following week which was just the job offer, really just took 2 mins.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Starcom Worldwide (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Very lengthy and in-depth. After applying online which includes a few essay questions, I got accepted for a phone interview. The phone interview is very behavioral-based, so be prepared to answer questions with examples. After passing the phone interview, I was invited for in-person interviews which took about 4 hours. I interviewed with 4 different people each one at a higher level than the previous. Each interviewer had their own style, so just be prepared to answer a lot of questions and ask a lot of questions!

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Starcom Worldwide (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First a recruiter reached out to me by phone, we talked about my previous experiences and he introduced the position in details. Then another HR scheduled two phone interviews for me with two VPs on two different days. The first call was late for 5 mins which was fine for me, because I understand sometimes people in VP level are busy. General questions were asked during the interview, such as "What do you know about Starcom", "How familiar are you with media analytics", "What is your career goal". No specific technical question was asked. The second interview. I have to say I was a little disappointed. It was scheduled at 12:30pm, and I kept waiting for half hour, but no one called me. Sent another email to HR to check if they rescheduled the interview. I haven't yet heard anything back from HR. I want to say that I can totally understand if the interviewer call me late for 5 or 10 mins, but this situation is out of my expectation. I'll update my review as soon as someone gets back to me.

    Interview

    -The interview process was very lengthly, but it was interesting. I interviewed with 3 other people separately. You start at the bottom and meet with a Supervisor, AD, then a Director. It was kinda cool to see how you would move up in the company. It was laid back and very behavioral based.
