How did you hear about the position?

I was asked this question multiple times and each time my response was repeated back to me incorrectly. I was eventually told they thought I was lying about how I found out about the position. Very insulting. Not a good working environment in the CEO's office. Less

Rain the Growth Agency

Are you interested in this kind of job with these kinds of extreme demands/expectations?

2 Answers

You have to remember that you're dealing with an advertising agency. This is a narcissistic environment and there isn't a soul in the company that would hesitate to talk about themselves. Act interested in the narcissist, ask them questions, make them excited about themselves and you'll have a better chance at them liking you. If you can't be the giver in the conversation, forget it, you're lost on them. Less

If you are able to commit to long hours,stressful working conditions and very little work-life balance, then act very excited during the phone interview and show no hesitations when asked how you would like to work under those conditions. Pack in as much information as you can about yourself, into a 2 minute statement, as that is what they will base their opinion on as to whether or not they want to meet with you in person. Less

can you swear like a trooper in your midlands accent?

2 Answers

i didnt answer this.

What a ridiculous question! Couldn't he realise how irrelevant it is to the job? As for him claiming he hired only those who interest him, that is silly. Anyone who happens to interest him isn't necessarily able to do the job. There are plenty of such people out there, so that is foolish, subjective criteria. If I encountered such a person so apparently disinterested in hiring the best talent, I would have threatened to walk out the door. Less
