    Difficult Interview

    Interview

    Submitted my resume, went in a met with the marketing team to interview. Sat down with some of the team at first, and then upper management came in to talk and ask questions. Interview room has a great view of the San Diego skyline which was a little distracting.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Underground Elephant.

    Interview

    Just met with a few people. They brought me in, I did not seek them out. Culture seems pretty intense. They weren't super clear about the exact role I would be doing. They're not like a traditional advertising agency, I think they're more a lead gen company and they also have programmatic ad buying.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Underground Elephant (San Diego, CA) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Made small talk for a few minutes with two managers on the phone, went over resume, then discussed briefly about what UE does and what the position entails. For entry level positions on the sales side, they're basically just looking for personality.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Underground Elephant.

    Interview

    There were a series of interviews, and I was pretty happy with the attention to detail. They gave me a code test, which wasn't that challenging, and I got to meet most of the team. Overall, the office shows well, and they seem to take more relaxed approach than other companies.

    Software Developer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Interview

    The process itself was easy, for me it involved speaking with senior engineering members about the role and my qualifications (no specific technical or coding questions). My interactions with HR however were not productive or constructive; they outright refused to answer my straightforward questions about compensation (for instance I asked how the bonus structure worked and how equity worked) and I felt they implied I was not right for the role if I had these type of questions.

    Interview

    Interviewed with HR first, they we're really nice and gave me a fun brain teaser to start. Asked me general personal questions to see if I'd be a good fit for HR. Then met with the Sales Manager. Her was really nice and was able to answer all my questions about the job and expectations.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Underground Elephant in March 2016.

    Interview

    It was long - I was there for about an hour. Upon arrival I filled out a sheet of brain teasers to test my "mental acuity," not sure what was made of that. Then I had my HR interview to see if I was a good culture fit. I was asked my spirit animal, to tell the story of an item of choice I had brought to the interview, what item I would take with me out of their office, how I would transport a baby elephant into the building, random questions like that.

    Next I met with the VP of Marketing, whom I had mailed my resume to already via snail mail. I met with the person she reported to, and the person who reported to her. I felt confident about the interview as I had prepared vastly for it. There was a lapse in communication, however, as I waited in the conference room for about 20 minutes alone, as I was told HR would come in to wrap up the interview (though they were not notified).

    Before I had even left the building, the VP had e-mailed me saying only the nicest of comments, and saying she would consider me highly for the position. She connected with me on LinkedIn, e-mailed me again the next day, and had me complete a visual assignment for her. She gave me her feedback once I e-mailed her my first draft, I made changes based on her comments, but heard nothing back after my second submission. Really disappointing after the positive initial impression the company made.
