  1. Graphic Designer Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Passion Parties (United States)

    Interview

    There was no interview - there was just a test. I was invited to take a graphic design test onsite, which I'm assuming was the "interview". I'm not sure since I was given very little information before the appointment other than they expected the person to design a logo, a flyer, and a brochure cover in 2 hours (or at least I was told to allow for 2 hours). That was the first red flag. Proper logos involve research, planning, sketching, etc. Having someone design a quick and dirty logo in a half hour isn't really a test of their abilities, more a test of how quickly they can come up with a sketch. The second red flag came when I was told that nobody who'd tested so far had met the mark. But it sounded like a decent opportunity with decent pay for the area, so I decided to give it a chance.

    I should've listened to my instincts. The environment did not seem like a happy one. I smiled at several people and got no smile in return. The person I met with came off to me as brusque and condescending. Upon arriving, they immediately walked me over to a computer and quickly rattled off a few instructions (like 15 seconds worth) before saying they'd be "on the other side" of the office if I had any questions and disappearing. There was a note taped to the desk informing me that "this is a test" and that I wasn't allowed to close Photoshop at any time (funny since it wasn't even open and you don't design logos in Photoshop anyway), to save my work to the "thumb drive" (there was no thumb drive provided). Then it said: "If you can't follow these simple instructions, you fail the test." (If that's not the exact quote, it's pretty close). I was a bit confused because there were no other instructions…and no thumb drive. So, I got up to search for my "interviewer". Since I wasn't given any indication of where they might be other than "on the other side", I had to peek in quite a few cubicles before finding them. When I asked for clarification about the instructions, mentioning the directions taped to the desk, they acted like I was a complete idiot and said they were "in the folder". When I asked "what folder?", they said—"The one on your desktop. I showed it to you." They then walked me back, tapped on the folder on the screen, and said—"It's right here. Like I showed you." I do not recall them showing it to me. It's possible they mentioned it when they quickly rattled off a few things - but I don't recall being shown anything. Still, I took responsibility and apologized for not catching it. Their response was walking off without another word.

    At that point, I wondered why I was still there. If they treat candidates like this, how would I be treated if I worked there? Still, I opened up the "instructions", more out of curiosity than anything else, which basically told me to design what we'd already discussed and gave me some content for the flyer. No directions on the look or feel they were going for. No insight into the demographic they were aiming for with the particular product. No style guides. Just an .ai file of their logo (which was all black). The desktop instructions said to save my work in a folder on the desktop. Well…which is it? Thumb drive or desktop? No wonder everyone was "missing the mark". Generally you have to tell people what you want to get what you want. Providing one set of instructions in one place also helps.

    In any event, I walked out without taking the test and this is the first time I've EVER walked out on an interview. Luckily I'm in a situation where I can be very picky - I know not everyone is. But, still, I have to wonder if I was the only one who left. I'm very aware how competitive graphic design is, but treating candidates like that is not the way to attract the best talent.
