    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at VSA Partners, Inc..

    Interview

    The process was well-organized and engaging. I interviewed with two people, one was the hiring manager and the other a team member. I thought the questions were fair and was very impressed by the overall working environment.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at VSA Partners, Inc..

    Interview

    Employee referral. Really one of the worst experiences I have had in terms of structure, communication and expectations. The whole process from initial conversations with the recruiter to finally get an answer on whether they were interested or not took 6 months! Months went by before getting a response. Did they really think that 4 months after the in person interview that I would be interested or employed elsewhere? I was more than qualified for the role, however I had to sell myself to a recruiter who seems to know very little about the industry. If you are a Designer it's probably a great place to beef up your portfolio. If you are a strat person or client service, look elsewhere.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at VSA Partners, Inc. (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Was referred by a current employee. Contacted same day by recruiter. Scheduled a phone interview then got two video calls with design teams. Whole process took 2 weeks. Quick and easy. I was also not in the area, so they were fine with interviewing via Google Hangout.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at VSA Partners, Inc..

    Interview

    Short phone interview. My interviewer had rescheduled once only a few minutes before our first schedule time, then called 5 mins late for the reschedule.
    Questions were pretty basic.
    The offer was nowhere near in line with my experience level and pay was likely 1/4 of my expected minimum, but the interviewer was nice.

    I suggest being more professional as an interviewer as well as targeting appropriately for recruiting. Punctuality is essential as an interviewer, and that was very telling for the rest of the process.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at VSA Partners, Inc. (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    They sent in a very junior level person to interview me. She then proceeded to tell me that they typically hire young, right out of college employees. They definitely have age discrimination and for that reason I knew that it was not a place I would want to work.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at VSA Partners, Inc. (New York, NY) in February 2018.

    Interview

    After numerous rounds of interviews, in-person and over the phone, VSA has said everyone loved my partner and I. After they sent an email saying, "Hold tight! We'll be making our decision soon!" it was literally radio silence. I can understand doing that after an interview, maybe two. But after 4 different interviews and so much positivity, to not even get an email back is just disrespectful of all the invested time. And this is all after they reached out to my partner. We didn't apply for the interview, they asked us there.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at VSA Partners, Inc. (Chicago, IL) in August 2014.

    Interview

    Met with the three most senior leaders for my position and division, over the course of two interviews. They were courteous to meet with me after hours and during the lunch hour, which made it easier to interview without taking time off. The recruiter coordinated the process and offer remotely, calling me over the phone with an offer. They made a generous offer, but made it clear they weren't interested in a bidding war.

    Senior Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at VSA Partners, Inc. (Chicago, IL) in October 2017.

    Interview

    I have applied via referral as well as online.

    I had a negative experience with them in the past - where the recruiter did a phone screen and told me she would pass my info to the team, except I never heard back from them.

    For the most recent application, I did not even get an interview, just an email saying my experience wasn't the right fit, but asking if I could freelance. This communication was presumably for the employee referral, since it was a non-automated email from the hiring manager. However, a few days later I received identical automated rejection emails from two different people, on two different days.

    This does not reflect well on them as a company. They obviously are in need of a better system to keep track of candidates, better communication, and better recruiters who know how to do their job.
