    Mailroom Clerk Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Talent.

    Interview

    It was an intense interview process. They ask why you're comfortable making such a small amount of money as well as what type of clients you see yourself representing. Meeting Michael Conway is pretty amazing but he isn't as easy to talk to and is quite robotic.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Talent (Los Angeles, CA).

    Interview

    Dropped my resume through UTA's website and then got an email from their recruiter. I scheduled a Skype call with them. Their recruiter was very kind and seemed to like me. Depending on who interviews you, it's best to just be yourself but show that you prepared for their questions. I was told that after a Skype interview, they schedule for you to meet HR at an event.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at United Talent (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2017.

    Interview

    They asked me in for a "meet and greet", don't be fooled by the name this is an interview. Very basic questions, nothing surprising. UTA has a very quick turn around time, I was called in 3 days after my resume was submitted.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at United Talent (Beverly Hills, CA) in August 2017.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview that was followed up with an in person interview a week later. I spoke with someone in HR on the phone, and then met with a Business Affairs Executive for the in person interview. It was a great interview- I was treated like an actual human, I got to talk about myself and my accomplishments a lot, it was more of a conversation than it was an interview, which made me feel much more comfortable.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at United Talent (Beverly Hills, CA).

    Interview

    I applied online and received an email the next day to schedule an interview the following week.

    I met with two execs. The interview was very casual with no real structure. It was very conversational. One of the gentlemen was very professional, while the other was rude and on his iPhone the entire time. He showed no interest in taking my interview seriously.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at United Talent (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through an employee referral - if you don't have a referral to pull your resume from a giant pile of them, it is unlikely you will get an interview. It's not especially fair, but that's how it is.

    I was invited to a recruitment seminar two weeks later. The two day event includes several panels of agents, employees. Attendees are expected to ask questions of these panelists and they will be judged accordingly on the question type etc. The entire recruitment seminar is less so an information seminar and more so a test of you and how you present yourself. HR takes notes, listens and observes your conversations with other recruits, so be mindful of that as well.

    The second day I met with Laura in HR for a 10 minute one on one. Asked me about my background, why she should hire me. Later in the day I was given a panel interview which featured Laura and five agents. I was well prepared and researched and you MUST be. They will test you as the job is really about selling yourself and being confident.

    Three weeks later, I was told the summer class was full and I was not given an offer. Seems those accepted into the program were notified within two weeks. It also seems that they prefer to hire recent college grads versus those with more experience since they can better mold them in their corporate image. Prior experience is not as vital as the right fit/image.

    I have no complaints, just remember this is not an especially meritocracy based field. If you don't get it, don't take it personally.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at United Talent (Los Angeles, CA) in May 2017.

    Interview

    It was a simple interview process, had an internal recommendation who connected me with his assistant and interviewed the following week. The interview was two parts, one with the Corporate Communications Coordinator, and the second with someone in HR. It was a pleasant interview but had cryptic communications following.
