    Assistant Digital Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at OMD in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Very straight-forward process, which is refreshing in a market where employers are paranoid. The HR director was very nice. If you get a call for an interview - make it count! It is a great company and one of the best places to work for young people.

    Assistant Strategist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate  in  Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 1 week - interviewed at OMD in November 2010.

    Interview Details

    This interview was pretty standard for any type of media agency. I was expecting some sort of media test (every media related interview I had previously consisted of a test), but it was just a question/answer interview.

    There were two people from HR interviewing me at the same time, which is quite common, EXCEPT one of them just sat there in silence. Barely spoke one word to me. So I found that to be a little odd, and very distracting for me in terms of making eye contact with them even though it was the other person doing all the talking. Suffice to say I didn't get the job. The mute person really threw me off my game.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked a lot of questions about my past experiences, and wanted me to go into extreme detail about what I specifically did in my prior jobs.   Answer Question

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 week - interviewed at OMD in October 2008.

    I submitted my resume and within a few hours had received a call from HR. They were very helpful and flexible seeing as i was at my old job and could not speak publicly around co-workers. I went in the next day for an interview which was very comfortable and did not find any issues with the process. A few days later i met with the group manager for another interview geared more towards work experience and daily tasks. They called me back wihtin a few days and offered me the position.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 week - interviewed at OMD in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was contacted by an OMD recruiter. We had a phone interview and I went in the next morning to interview with the director and associate director. They were great about answering my (many) questions. They were also very respectful of the fact that I needed to keep the interview to an hour so that I could get to work on time. The whole process was very professional, courteous and efficient.

When researching in the lead-up to the interview, I focused more on the media side of things and sacrificed the maths side. Also, I hadn't completed maths questions in an test setting since I left school so I could have done a lot better.   View Answer

    Interview Details

    After submitting a resume, a representative from HR contacted me on the phone asking to discuss my work experience. Following the initial conversation with HR, they then have you come in and speak with members of the team that has the vacant position. I spoke individually with four different team members, each a higher level than the other. The questions were primarily fit related, which may have been unique to me as an entry-level candidate.
