    Account Supervisor-Business for Social Purpose Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Had a brief phone screen with HR. Was brought in shortly after for in-person interviews. Met with 4 people back-to-back for a total of 2 hours. Standard questions. The HR rep said she would be in touch on feedback in a few days. Never heard from her. Followed up with her twice and no response.

    I take no issue with not being moved along to the next round or not getting the job. But when a candidate invests time to come in for 2 hours of interviews, the professional and standard thing to do is to update them on where they stand in the interview process.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Edelman in March 2019.

    Interview

    First I spoke with a recruiter, then with a senior Vice President. Then the recruiter, Megan Boyle, completely ghosted me. I was told I would hear something and she stopped answering. I sent 3 follow up emails. It was very disappointing and unprofessional.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    Interview

    Phone interview with HR that was an hour and then in-person interviews in the office with key staff and hiring manager. No one followed up with me afterward which isn’t a good sign for how staff or potential staff should be treated.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (Atlanta, GA (US)) in January 2019.

    Interview

    I got an initial email from a HR recruiter asking to set up a time to call. After our call, we set up an additional phone interview with the team. Then a week or so later I went into the office for an in-person interview with a few members of the team. Pretty straightforward questions and gave me a tour of the office afterwards.

    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Edelman (New York, NY (US)) in December 2018.

    Interview

    I was referred to Edelman by a former colleague who worked there before. I was reached out by recruitment and had a phone screening. I was then invited in to meet 3 members of the department and everyone was super friendly and the interview wasn't super formal. At the end, the recruiter said she wouldn't leave me hanging and would notify me by end of the week the next steps. (This was before the holidays so I wasn't expecting a decision made by them yet anyway) I emailed her after the interview the next day to thank her for having me in. By end of the week, I hear nothing but the holidays were next week so I would probably hear back the next week, right? I follow up the Friday after the holidays and got a bounceback "out of office". No problem. A week goes by and I follow up again kindly asking if I'm still in consideration since I am actively interviewing and would like to know. I knew there were looking to hire in January because they told me. I still have not heard back and I know this is a large company who interviews many candidates but leaving someone hanging is very unprofessional. A simple email saying I'm no longer in for consideration would be fine- especially when that is your job to follow up with candidates. I had high expectations from this company and was really impressed by the team but I am disappointed that I wasn't even given a simple email after 3 follow-ups.
