    Interview

    I landed this interview through a recruiting company, otherwise I never would have had the connections to land it. The minimum of 2-3 years before promotion had gotten my attention and the interviewer got the impression I wanted to move up sooner than that, so I didn't get offered the position.

    Interview Questions

    • Where do you see yourself in 5 years? (Don't be too ambitious because the position requires 2-3 years with no flexibility of moving up)   Answer Question

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Wieden And Kennedy in July 2014.

    Interview

    Was contacted by their HR on LinkedIn. Had 2 phone interviews with the HR and one with the manager. The HR department seemed very positive and keen that they wanted me to interview. After one hour long conversation with the manager it was clear there was some internal miscommunication. The interviews were casual and not very pressing so did not expect there to be a second one.

    Interview Questions

    • The manager was mostly interested in asking about willingness to be team player. Past examples of good teamwork. The conversation and questions were very vague so at times hard to judge how much detail he wanted you to go into regarding past work.   Answer Question

    Interview

    First met through college job fair info-session. Followed up and received Initial interview over phone. First woman I spoke to was very nice and impressed with my background, but would not be a person I would work directly under. The next round was a phone interview with what would be my supervisor. She was much tougher and much less impressed with what I had to say.
