    Associate Marketing Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Seattle, WA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WE Communications (Seattle, WA (US)) in October 2019.

    Interview

    I was invited to an interview but the recruiter never responded after the initial offer. I reached out three times about scheduling our interview, but was ignored by the recruiter. She finally replied 3 weeks after her initial offer, saying that they had already hired another candidate. I wish I knew what I did wrong.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Bellevue, WA (US)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at WE Communications (Bellevue, WA (US)) in November 2018.

    Interview

    Overall the interview process was good until the very end. I met with multiple people on the team who I’d work with for 4 interviews over 2 months. One phone interview and 3 in person at their office in Bellevue. Everyone I met was really nice and easy to talk with, and all the interviews went well.

    I was told that I was one of two final candidates they were considering. Then the next call I get from the recruiter is that sorry, actually they’ve decided not to fill the position after all. This was after months of interviews, arranging travel and holiday plans around them, and a lot of time and effort. I understand that the needs of a business can change, and that maybe someone else would’ve been best for the role. But to hear that they decided they didn't even want to fill the position was extremely frustrating so late in the game. Surely there is a point in the process before you’ve conducted 4 interviews with someone that you’d know you don’t actually intend to hire.

    The company and the job seemed cool but the way they handled this felt disrespectful to the candidates.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at WE Communications.

    Interview

    I was referred to the company through a current employee. A recruiter reached out within a week to schedule a phone screening. The phone screening conversation was mostly about my background and what I was looking to do in the future -- nothing unusual or remarkable about the conversation. Within a few days of the phone screening, I received a call asking to schedule an in-person interview. I met with two women who had been at the agency for a decade each and who would be my managers if I got the job. The conversation went deeper into my previous experience, although they did ask questions that were intended to be fun and give me a chance to share more about me, my personal interests and what I liked to do outside of work. They were looking for someone with a good level of experience who had a basic skillset and could learn more, but more so someone who would fit in well culturally. I assume at more senior levels, job function and ability is more relevant, but at the more junior staff level - it's more about finding smart people who work hard and like to have fun.

    Public Relations Specialist Interview

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

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WE Communications (New York, NY (US)) in January 2018.

    Interview

    When I got to the interview the employees seemed all over the place and barley had time to speak. The questions were strange and negative compared to other places. I don't recommend interviewing here unless you're fully aware they'll ask you questions from all different directions. They also seemed super picky too so be aware they're probably interviewing tons of other people for the sam role.
