I have been working at Media Contacts full-time (More than a year)
Young, fun, and talented group. There is a lot of opportunity for growth. The company is flexible and open to ideas from all.
As with all agencies, hours can be long. Starting out, salaries are general on the low end, but if you prove yourself you will be rewarded.
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Media Contacts (New York, NY) in January 2013.
There are four media supervisors which interview. Each interview is about 25 to 30 minute long. Such questions include:
1. Why Media?
2. What interest you about advertising?
3. On a scale what is your proficiency with Microsoft excel? Sidenote: mention "if statements and analysis"
4. What publications do you read?
5. Tell me about yourself?
6. Strengths and weakenesses
