    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Zimmerman Advertising (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied through an employee referral. I was scheduled to do a short phone interview with Eli. I was then invited to do an in-person interview at Zimmerman. I scheduled my interview for the following week. When I arrived, I checked-in at the front desk. They escorted me to another room to wait for Eli. Eli arrived and we had an easygoing and casual conversation about the agency, etc. which really calmed my nerves (he's awesome!) He then told me who I'd be meeting with after Olivia showed me around the agency on a tour. I met with the Group Account Director + Account Supervisor in one room and my interview went really well! They were both super friendly and asked me about myself. They explained what my responsibilities were to be. I ran a little over my time with them (which was a good thing). I then had a shorter meeting with the Managing Director of Retail Services who went more in-depth of Account Services. Eli met me outside her office after, asked how it went, then told me he would get back to me by the end of week.

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Zimmerman Advertising (Fort Lauderdale, FL) in April 2017.

    Interview

    Went to a job fair, talked to two departments, dropped off resume. I first received a rejection email littered with grammatical errors then 30 mins later I received an invitation to interview for a position in their Traffic department next week. We set it up and the day before it was pushed to the next week. Next week came and it was pushed to the week after. I called the recruiter and he said that position wasn't available in the first place but he was trying to find another position for me. The next we scheduled an interview for an Account Executive role. I came in, met the recruiter, he took me to a room where I interviewed with about 7 people separately for 15 mins each. I was their for about 4 hours total while waiting on people to free up to meet me. The interviews were more of a conversation than a typical interview. Then I was given a tour of the building. I was told at the latest to expect a decision in two weeks. After I left the recruiter called me to come back in the next day to interview with their boutique firm upstairs for a similar account executive role. I interviewed with two people and they explained the difference between Z Group and Zimmerman Advertising. At the end they said they would get back to me by tomorrow and they never did. I made a few calls and sent an email but received no response. HR was horrendous with communication.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Zimmerman Advertising (Fort Lauderdale, FL).

    Interview

    Freelanced there. They didn't even look at my portfolio. Just the fact that I carried one in seemed to be enough. HR interviewed me; not a CD, GCD, or ECD. Laughable.

    Negotiation

    At the time, the HR chief was a tough negotiator. But they of course drove that person off, keeping their turnover rate obscenely high.
