    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at MEC (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    I was contacted via a recruiter who did a prescreening over the phone, which was very brief. He basically wanted to see what types of roles I would be interested in. I then did an in-person interview with two different people. Pretty casual, more like a conversation that an interview. I was offered the position later that same day.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at MEC (New York, NY (US)) in November 2011.

    Interview

    It was a very seamless process. I sent a resume and cover letter through the online job portal and heard back that day from HR asking me if I could interview ASAP.

    I went in and met with 5 different team members, i knew they were busy but it's nice that they blocked everyone off at once so I didn't have to come back.

    I got a call the next day from the recruiter with the offer.

    Intimidating Process, Great Interviewers
    Initially got a call from someone in HR asking me to come in for a group interview. Came in and there were 8 of us applying for associate roles. They took us all into a meeting room and did a little 30 minute intro to the company, then separated us all into individual rooms where we each had 4 30 minute interviews with people working with different campaigns and in different roles. Everyone was very friendly and pretty great at making you feel comfortable. Essentially they are just trying to see how you would fit in, what team you might work best on, etc.
    Got a call the next morning with an offer.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at MEC (San Francisco, CA (US)) in August 2017.

    Interview

    The interview process for fairly straightforward. However, the interviewers were very unprofessional. The hiring manager was very condescending and kept trying to undermine my qualifications. She came under prepared to the interview without even reading my resume and had the audacity to ask redundant questions that made no sense. I am glad they didn't make an offer.
