I recently received an offer from iProspect (part of Dentsu) I’ve heard ups and downs about this company. I currently work for a great company and not sure if I should leave. The new opportunity pays a lot more than I currently make. Does anyone have any advice about this company and whether I should take the job or not?

  1. Market Team Lead Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Spring, TX
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview
    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at BDS Connected Solutions (Spring, TX) in Jul 2022

    Interview

    Had a pretty now 30-40 min interview, talked at length to my experience and the interviewer seemed really interested and was told that I would either get an offer or a second interview. Was told it was in the city limits to where I live not far from and was willing to relocate out of my own pocket. Didn’t hear anything back from them for the weekend but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. I called the recruiter who had sought me out for this position, and he was told that the only reason that I was declined this position was that my zip code didn’t match the area they were looking for. I told him that I was willing to relocate if needed and that I told her that, and he reiterated that that was the only reason I was declined. Not even a second interview to go over something as minuscule as that.
