I applied online. I interviewed at Edelman (United States)

Interview

The interview process was quick but straightforward. I had about 3 interviews and all asked relevant questions as well as further explained the role. They did a great job showing “the Edelman way”

I applied online. I interviewed at Edelman (United States)

Interview

Pretty simple and straight forward, but didn't have the courtesy to tell me I didn't get the position or responds back to any follow-up emails. Says a lot about a company when they don't get back to you on time when they say they will.

  • What were some optimizations you made at your current company?

I was first contacted by the HR. There were multiple rounds to meet various people in the team to assess which team would be most suitable for both the interviewer and interviewee. All of the interviewers were very nice and professional.

Long, disappointing and a poor candidate experience . Periods when it felt urgent and periods of complete silence for weeks. Pay is very low compared to market. Will not recommend!

The process took 3 months. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY) in Feb 2021

Interview

Not pleased with the hiring process. Applied through a referral. The process took 3 months!! There were periods with a sense of urgency and periods of silence. Interviewed with about 8 people and had a writing test. After a period of silence I was told that the position was already filled but, they’d keep my resume on file because I was a great candidate.

Interview

Very unprofessional. Was contacted asking to chat on the phone after submitting an application and had received confirmation on a date and time for the call. Was waiting for 10 minutes past the designated time when the Recruiter emailed me saying she would call me in 10 minutes since she was on a call longer than expected. I ended up waiting for over an hour for her to call me and decided to email her saying I was available for the rest of the day or could reschedule for another date and time-slot where she would be available. I ended up being ghosted and would say that this was an overall very poor candidate experience.

I interviewed at Edelman (United States)

Interview

3 out of 3 interviewers were late to 30-minute interviews with me. Interviewers seemed to be winging it and have no clear strategy for what they wanted to ask me or talk about. Someone rescheduled on me twice in a week. Agency positioning in the area of focus was undifferentiated. They had another candidate at the offer stage before my interviews even concluded, which was just fine.
