    I worked at Butler Shine Stern and Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Creative culture, progressive independent agency, Bagel Friday, Kombucha on tap, do I need to say more?

    Cons

    Not just at BSSP but in general, advertising can be long hours. It goes with the trade.

    Application

    I applied through other source. I interviewed at Butler Shine Stern and Partners (Sausalito, CA).

    Interview

    This interview started out with two phone interviews. There were two positions that I was interested in...the AMP being the senior of the two. Although I was concerned about my experience level for the role, the HR rep advised me to apply for this one over the more entry level one...so I did.

    I was told that I would be interviewing with about 4 different people coming from a variety of levels within the company. The interview seemed to go really well! All incredibly nice and knowledgable people.

    After 2 hours I was asked if I would be able to stay a little longer to meet with a few more people within the department. I obviously agreed and had pleasant conversations with two other ladies who seemed excited to meet with me as much as I was to meet with them.

    After 3.5 hours I left feeling good about the interview and the relationships I seemed to form with the people I just met with. I sent out thank you notes to all 6 people that I spoke with. After a few days I reached out to the HR rep that I had originally spoke with and she assured me it would be about a week.

    I followed up several times after the previously determined timeframe had passed, inquiring about any decisions that had been made regarding the job. I finally received a response claiming that "I did not have enough experience," a common excuse.

    This was understandable however was frustrating given I was advised to apply for this job over the more junior role. I suppose the moral of the story is...trust your gut.
