    Associate Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VML (Kansas City, MO) in May 2014.

    Interview

    The interview process was very professional, HR emailed me schedules weeks before the actual interview actually took place.

    I interviewed with HR first, which was just standard benifit info along with general overview of the company.

    Next I interviewed with the Creative Director on the account I was applying for- Looked at my book, then we looked at his.

    Next I interviewed with both ECDs and they were less concerned about my book, and more concerned with my person and who I was.

    Over all very proffessional.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at VML (Kansas City, MO).

    Interview

    The interview process lasted a few hours as I was interviewing with multiple teams for multiple positions. I was told a lot about the culture of the company, projects each team works on, and was told in detail my responsibilities if I did end up joining the VML team. I walked each interviewer through my portfolio book. Some took a long time to look at each project. Others flipped through quickly and wanted to know more about my previous work experience and commitment to VML. As far as turnaround after the interview I had a job offer in less than a week.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at VML (Kansas City, MO) in June 2008.

    Interview

    Very comfortable. I was brought in, sat in a quite meeting room, there I met the interviewers who all made me feel welcome and seemed grateful that I was there. When discussing the means for my being there questions where asked and answered on both parts. I have never interviewed with more than one person, and on this interview there where three, and it never seemed like there was an overpowering feeling in that room. I can say that the VML interview was the best, most fun, and professional interview i have ever held. And I have had a few.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    An offer was made from VML, verbally as well as written. Since I was right out of school the offer was very high for my profession so negotiations where non existent.

    Lead Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Kansas City, MO
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at VML (Kansas City, MO) in August 2010.

    Interview

    You'll almost certainly have to go through a contracting company. Regardless of what they tell you, this is not a "contract to hire position". VML will take their sweet time bringing you on full time and will only do so if forced. Dealing with a contracting company is not desirable and should be avoided at all costs.

    If you're talented and well known, you should refuse any position which is not a direct hire. VML will "change the rules" if they have to.

    Interview Questions

    • Varies dramatically per interviewer. If you read smashing magazine or net tuts, you'll be fine.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Demand exactly what you want, don't bend.

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at VML (Kansas City, MO) in August 2014.

    Interview

    I was contacted by recruiter and set up and in-person interview within a day or two. I interviewed initially with one Developer, then during the interview a couple other developers joined in. Most of the interview was technical questions about JavaScript. The atmosphere was very relaxed, and the interview wasn't stressful at all. The developer giving the interview would tell you what he was looking for if you didn't quite know the answer to a question. It felt more like a conversation.

    I initially was queried over the phone about my skills. This warranted a 1:1 interview with a manager. This led to a group interview with the team I would support. The face to face interviews took place at the downtown KC airport location. The team were knowledgeable and were very nice and energetic. There was a lot of dialog. I would interview with VML again.
