    Conference Producer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Terrapinn (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Discovered through recruiter, did a phone interview and in person interview with them to determine if I was a fit for the job. Was then scheduled for an interview with the GM. Spoke about my resume at length, had filled a competency form prior to the interview that contained a modest number of questions. Second round of interview with Terrapinn involved creating a 'mock conference' agenda. You are given a deadline that is dependant on the timeline of the interviews and once submitted you come in person to go over your agenda. Ended up being a great resource for when work started to acclimate you to the beginning of your production processes.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Terrapinn (New York, NY) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The interview process started with an initial phone screen. They invited me in for group interview. The group interview consisted of a brief overview of the company followed by informational packets. We were assigned to a take-home assignment. I was invited for second interview and this time math with a manager who is very young and intimidated by me due to her lack of experience.

    Interview

    You will have to work on a project and submit writing samples. Asked Normal questions. Found that they omitted some of the challenges that someone working here would have to deal with.

    Conference Producer Interview

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Terrapinn (London, England (UK)) in October 2015.

    Interview

    The whole process probably took about a week and a half. I used a recruiter who got me an interview even though I had no experience in this field. Went for an initial interview in the London office with managers of 2 teams and another producer, and then was invited back to present a mock conference project, which included topics, structure of the conference, buy side and sell side etc, on any topic of my choice. After that, I met with the MD and was offered the job during the interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Terrapinn (London, England (UK)).

    Interview

    Heard about the role through a recruiter, had a two stage interview process and competency based application form to complete. The process was quick, straight forward, transparent. I met two managers, first stage was more around my CV and experience, second stage concentrated on my application form. Best bit of advice I could give, especially for a salesperson, make sure you know your numbers and have examples to back up claims.
    Both interviewers were professional in approach but didn't give much away. I wasn't sure how I'd done until I got feedback from my recruiter.

    Interview

    I applied online through their website and received a call within a week. There were 2 rounds of face to face interviews along with several aptitude test before an initial offer. The atmosphere seem pretty relaxed and the environment is rather positive with many people aged below 40 or so. Nice office with great view!

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Terrapinn (London, England (UK)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    First had a short phone interview, a competency test and an assessment day. The assessment consisted of a an unexpected pop quiz, a company presentation given by them (I prepared a presentation on terrapin as I thought Id be the one giving the presentation not them) followed by a case study which had marketing related questions such as "what marketing strategy would you use in such and such situation" and "How much of your total budget would you allocate " etc. Then whoever passed all the tests would move onto an interview which mainly based on your answers from the competency test and case study. They further asked about how i would cary out specific marketing campaigns. Overall very easy, having that said I didn't actually get the job. lol
