I have been working at The Richards Group full-time (More than 3 years)
If you want to be challenged to be smarter about the way you think about advertising strategy every day, this is the place for you. TRG gets a lot of flack for the "no titles" culture. And I agree, sometimes it's hard to understand where you fit on an org chart or explain to partners/clients who should be in charge of certain tasks. But because of the people who work here, if you are proactive in wanting to learn new things and create real strategy, you have the ability to get involved in projects well beyond your tenure. You have opportunities to manage teams and put together strategy, work one-on-one with people who are much smarter than you and have much more experience. Those opportunities have been invaluable to me.
If you're not on teams that allow for that, or are feeling overwhelmed, senior management is happy to make changes for you. All you have to do is ask. TRG is a place that values people who are smart, excited to learn, and eager to support others.
If you want 9-5 job where you can work from home and master tasks without being challenged daily, this is not the place for you.
If you want to get the most out of your experience working at TRG, and are proactive about getting involved in a lot of different projects, you will work overtime.
I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Richards Group (Dallas, TX).
I applied online and received a generic confirmation email. After a couple weeks, I got an email from a recruiters asking for additional information. After 2 more weeks I was scheduled for a phone screening with the recruiter. After 2 more weeks I was scheduled for a phone interview with an executive at the company. After 2 more weeks I was invited to an in-person interview at the office. I was interviewed 1 on 1 by multiple executives.
