    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at mcgarrybowen (New York, NY) in June 2016.

    Interview

    Sent in an email, got a phone call with the new business director. She didn't ask me much but just wanted to talk to me to gauge my personality. She went over the job, emphasizing the heavy hours involved in working, and at the end of the call sounded positive and said she would get back in touch with me in the next couple of weeks.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at mcgarrybowen (New York, NY) in February 2016.

    Interview

    Had several rounds of interviews with several different client teams. Ultimately every single opportunity dematerialized at the last second because they couldn't secure the funding. Took MONTHS to hear this and had to absolutely beg for updates. Great place to interview if you don't want to be treated as a human.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at mcgarrybowen (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Friend at agency got me in touch with internship coordinator so I could ask questions. Spoke on the phone for 30 minutes, then she arranged an in-person interview. Since the in-person was on Friday AM, there were no creatives present, just the internship coordinator. She was super nice, easygoing, and able to answer all my questions.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at mcgarrybowen.

    Interview

    Very cool atmosphere. Great (and very hip) people. The interview process was good - very relaxed, but thorough. The HR team was very friendly and easily accessible. The Production team was also very friendly- very much 'work hard, play hard' types - you could tell they were passionate about what they were working on, which made you want to be a part of it.

    Negotiation

    Their team was great to deal with and made me feel like they were working to get the best for me.

    Interview

    I was freelancing with them and was hired shortly after. The company was growing that time I was working and was they were looking. It was easy (at the time since they were in need), it may be a bit more challenging since the company has grown a lot bigger.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at mcgarrybowen in October 2014.

    Interview

    Set up a phone call within a couple days of getting in contact with them. It was a 20 minute chat mostly about my past experiences, what I know about McGarry, challenges I had in the past etc. Would be followed by 1-3 round interviews depending on how fast they need someone. Recruiter was very nice and personable and was honest about where they are in terms of hiring needs.

    The standard recruiter phone call to kick things off followed by an in-person meeting with the team. It seemed like everyone was stressed out and the interview was more of a meet-and-great than anything formal. Quite easy.
