    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at The OutCast Agency (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The process took about 3 days, I was first invited for a phone interview and then invited in person for a formal interview. I meet with a total of four people (two at time) and they pretty much asked me basic interview questions, however they were really big on time management questions due to the fast pace environment of the company.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The OutCast Agency (San Francisco, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Started with a phone interview, with the nicest HR manager! Then a Skype interview with 2 groups of 2, one group was an Associate and AAE while the other group was Senior level staff. Everyone was very friendly and actually cared why you wanted to be part of OutCast. The final step was sending references, then the following Monday I got an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at The OutCast Agency (San Francisco, CA).

    Interview

    My interview process was very enjoyable. You have a phone screening with the hiring director and then you have two to three interviews with 2 staff members at a time. The staff are super friendly so just smile and show your personality.

    Interview Questions

    • How well do you work under pressure. How do you prioritize. Describe a time when you had an issue with someone in the workplace. What clients are you interested in working with? Why tech PR? But mostly just chatted about what type of person I was my interests. They want to know that you will mesh well with everyone and enjoy the company culture.   1 Answer

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at The OutCast Agency (San Francisco, CA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and was interviewed by the HR manager the next day. After the initial phone interview I had another phone interview with the director of HR and was then invited to and in-person interview. I interviewed with 6 people at various positions. Everybody was very nice and pleasant to talk to and the questions were what I expected. I didn't get the position in the end but the overall experience was very positive. The HR person was very professional and followed up with me after the interview to let me know their decision and explain why I wasn't selected.

    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at The OutCast Agency (San Francisco, CA) in October 2014.

    Interview

    The process was nothing remarkable and being so, probably did not deliver any remarkable insights to anyone -- myself (candidate) and reviewers. I was set up to interview with a few groups of people who paired up to do the interview. Those people were cordial, but very junior in the sense that no one that interviewed me had more than a few years of work experience. That didn't make any sense to me and felt like a waste of time. If you're going to bring someone in, the company should take the time to set up interviews with a broad range of people and opinions. The questions were stock interview questions. I felt like I was able to come up with solid answers for each one. I asked as much as I could about the company and relevant accounts, but the more difficult questions could only be answered by hiring managers.

    Interview

    Positive experience, some emailing and then a phone conversation. It did not work out because of timing but I believe it would be a positive place to work in order to grow as a PR professional.
