I have worked here for over 20 years and have watched this company change from a consulting firm to an advertising agency. While we've changed and grown, we've kept our roots and a compassionate place to work. We care about our staff and we care about the client's we serve. We work exclusively with non-profits with a mind to helping make the world a better place.
ST is not a typical advertising agency. We don't work 80 hours a week. Salary is commiserate with our work-life balance philosophy. If you want to work a million hours selling products and make a huge amount of money, this isn't the agency for you.
I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Stephen Thomas (Toronto, ON (Canada)) in February 2012.
Found the job on LinkedIn. Got a call from them a few weeks later to schedule a telephone interview. In the telephone interview they asked me a bunch of questions relating to the job posting. About a week after that, I got called in for an in-person interview. I prepared for the interview mostly by reviewing their website and this definitely helped me answer many of the interview questions.
Two ST employees interviewed me. There were some very strange questions (see questions section), so be prepared for those. I also had to e-mail them back about 3 weeks after the interview before they finally let me know that they decided to pursue other candidates.
