    BAV Social Developer Interview

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

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Young & Rubicam (New York, NY (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Started interview process 3 months ago with the company where HR was super active initially. Scheduled interview and went through multiple rounds where I heard all praises from interviewers. Suddenly after 2 weeks in I stopped hearing back from everybody after being told I would hear back within few days. After doing multiple follow ups with HR I finally reached out to the hiring manager who also told me I’ll hear back soon. 2 months have passed since then and I do not hear again for weeks and have lost zeal to work for such corporation where people don’t value people. I send hiring manager another note and HR reaches out to me telling me it was wrong on my part to reach out to hiring manager.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Young & Rubicam (New York, NY (US)) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Walked through the doors and was led to the interview area by the interviewer, which I did not expect. The interview began right away and ended in about seven minutes. If the interviewer asks if you have any questions after one or two questions, just know that you flunked it. Could try to save it by asking some good and interesting questions tho.

    Phone interview to assess past responsibilities. I submitted a resume and was contacted promptly to set up a phone interview. Very smooth experience. This company does not use recruiters so check both online job postings and social media to see when new positions are opening up.

    Content Producer Interview

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Young & Rubicam.

    Interview

    Was brought in for 2 in-person interviews, the last being with the CCO. Before I even got home from my last meeting, I received an email telling me not to take any other offers and that something will be worked out quickly. I interpreted that to mean an offer was forthcoming. After several days of silence and me poking around, the conversation became vague and I received a form email about a week later saying I didn't get the position and that I was a runner up. This is by far the most unprofessional interview follow-up I have ever heard of.
