    I worked at Effective Spend full-time

    Pros

    I learned a LOT when I worked here. The management team is extremely invested in the training and onboarding process and dedicates substantial time to making sure new employees really understand best practices. Coworkers were very committed to their positions (maybe a little _too_ committed...?) and definitely enthusiastic about digital marketing in general. Pay was in line with the market average for Austin.

    Cons

    Like any marketing agency, don't expect to work 8-5 M-F. You'll likely need to spend time working during the evenings and weekends, but, again, that's pretty much par for the course when it comes to being at an agency.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Effective Spend (Austin, TX) in September 2017.

    Interview

    The first thing I would say is that it took too long to get a phone interview. Very drawn out process. I am not great during phone interviews already and the person I spoke to sounded bored and uninterested. It squashed my enthusiasm.
