    I have been working at C-K full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work-life balance. Very flexible schedule offerings and always very understanding of life obstacles and willing to accommodate. Great benefits and vacation policies.

    Cons

    Preach about cross-training, but have found it's not a reality. They also tend to favor and shine the spotlight over some departments and ignore others.

    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at C-K (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Had 3 interviews total. 1 Phone interview with HR, 1 interview with the Account Directors & Supervisors, 1- interview with Group Account Directors. Very conversational in tone, because they want someone who can contribute to a conversation. don't just nod in agreement add substance to the conversation on why you would make a good fit.
