1 presentation and interview management employee. both were online, walked through proposal and thought process. interview was fairly informal, more for both parties to review what each brings to the table.

I applied online. I interviewed at Mindshare
Interview was standard - met with two people from the team that I’d be joining at the company. We reviewed my background and expertise and discussed the day to day tasks as well as immediate challenges (i.e. team structure, processes, etc.) that I may face if I joined.

While I appreciate that Mindshare took action to improve its parental leave by increasing paternity leave and removing time with company to qualify, I think it's insane that they didn't offer MOMS more time off. 3 months is not enough and now men and women get the same amount. Even though women are the ones giving birth. I really felt like it was a slap in the face to those women. Why not extend to 16 weeks for women? That would be most helpful. Wasn't impressed.

Hey Everyone, I'm a postgraduate student pursuing MSc. Marketing in London, and I'm actively seeking internships related to marketing and brand communication. I bring with me approximately 3.8 years of work experience from a prominent OOH agency in Dubai and have worked with some prestigious clients like Amazon, Mercedes, H&M and many more. If you have any openings, I'd greatly appreciate if you could please get in touch. Thank you! Omnicom Media Group WPP Dentsu Havas MindShare Publicis

Is it common for employers like WPP to consider relocating employees to a different country if they were not selected in the H-1B visa lottery? I currently work as a data scientist at a WPP agency, and most of my team members are based in a different country. WPP GroupM MindShare Ogilvy

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Mindshare (Toronto, ON) in Jan 2020
Interview process was standard until I got to 3rd interview. PLEASE ALSO NOTE: This was MINDSHARE & NEO. First, standard phone screening. All good and went well. Second, meeting with 2 direct reports (directors). Again, all good and went well. Third, this is where it got weird. I was booked in a 1 hour interview, as per usual. Met with another director who just blasted through the exact same questions that I was asked in the 2nd interview. This was fine but ODD. This told me that the director I was currently speaking with had not connected with the other 2 directors. After the director was finished with their questions they said "oh look! it's been 30 mins, I have to go to another meeting". I had said that I had questions and that I was booked for 1 hour. They said "oh, ok" I got 2 questions out with very short one-worded answers and then the Director claimed that they absolutely had to go now. This told me that the person I was currently speaking with doubled booked themselves and cared only about what they needed out of the interview and not mine. After this, obviously I was a bit skeptical but, I was still interested in the role and just took my 3rd interview as a "they were just very busy" kind of mindset and rolled it off. For the forth round, or as I called it, the company had asked for references. This was great news as I thought the previous interview was a total bomb. I had provided them with a total of 3 colleagues that I have previously worked with or for. Two of these people told me they had received the request and that they had already sent their reference back. The third one contacted me and wanted to advise me that they were quite appalled and questioned their request. I had told this person that it was fine to deny and reject the reference request. After this, the hiring coordinator I had been working with contacted me told me about this as well. I informed them that I had already knew and I would gladly provide another reference. The hiring coordinator had requested that I provide a reference from the last 2 working years. I had reiterated to them that I had been in my current role for the last 4 working years and that I would have to ask a current colleague therefore exposing my job search to my current employer. They had then told me that they were very interested in me and were very excited to move to an employment offer. This was great news to me! I then provided a 4th reference (current colleague) and awaited next steps. A few days after all of this, one of the hiring managers contacted and had said they were going vacation for 2 weeks and they would be in contact when they returned. They had also reiterated that all references we're extremely glowing in my favor and they were exited to move to a final offer. 3 weeks later they emailed to tell me that were NOT moving forward with me and that they had filled the position internally. This was THE WORST interview process I've ever experienced in my career. I would have been fine with everything except for when I had to expose my current job search even AFTER they had reassured me. This was especially bad because they had requested a more recent professional reference. BEWARE MINDSHARE & NEO!

Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Mindshare (Chicago, IL) in Apr 2017
Very informal interview process. Recruiter reached out, phone call and then went to the office to meet the team. The interview was merely a conversation in general about my work past and some about the structure of the team. The interviewers did not seem to have set questions but rather just came in with a copy of my resume. They were all easy to talk to.
