IF YOU LIKE ORDINARY, WE'RE NOT FOR YOU

If "beyond comfort" thrills you, if "expanding possible" attracts, then you'll do your best work here.

You'll do it because we'll provoke you, challenge you and unashamedly ask for more. We believe there are no limits for passion, imagination and wonder. And it's only when we explore the unknown that we can truly thrive.

That's why we're so passionate about investing in our people to help them thrive collectively and individually.

We'll reach out and help you explore the uncharted because that's where ideas flourish. It's where people and brands grow.

You owe it to yourself and we owe it to our clients. It's the MEC way.

DON'T JUST LIVE. THRIVE.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at MEC (New York, NY) in June 2013.

    Interview

    Laid back. Met with 4 different accounts and was asked about myself. nothing crazy; more conversational then anything. They wanted to see if you were just a normal somewhat intelligent person
