    Art Director Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at VML (Chicago, IL) in February 2019.

    Interview

    Interviewed once, got an offer, ultimately the offer fell through on their end because it wasn't "approved" before they started interviewing, which is insane. Extremely unorganized and slow, super inefficient and no transparency.

    WPP creates new brand experience agency.

  • Being named to the 2018 @adage A-List is an incredible honor. Thanks to our team and clients for making it possible.

    VML Is No. 3 on Ad Age's 2018 A-List

    If you watched the Super Bowl earlier this month, it was hard to miss the Wendy's spot that coldcocked McDonald's: It called out McD's flash-frozen beef with the copy, "The iceberg that sunk the Titanic was frozen too," and ended with, "Skip the hamburgers at the Golden Arches."
