    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (Atlanta, GA (US)) in January 2012.

    Interview

    Organization showed interest and conducted an amiable interview by phone indicating that HR would reach out shortly to schedule an in-office interview the following week, which never happened. Shortly after following up the following week, an instant "automatically generated response" indicated that the position had been filled, which is fine, however a human response would have gone a long way.

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at J. Walter Thompson Worldwide (New York, NY (US)) in August 2011.

    Interview

    Seemed to go smoothly - very professional.
    They have a very nice office space.
    I was impressed with everyone on the team - account people, creatives, planner. Only the HR person seemed a bit cold and uptight.
    But then again, she scheduled all the interviews. I had 5 in total.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    My company counter-offered. Seemed like JWT was also going through turmoil at the time and I wasn't sure I wanted to join an agency in chaos.
