    I have been working at Young & Rubicam full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of free time to do other things. The place is so divided and lack of communication results in forgotten people without work to do. Great for making extra money, running errands etc.

    Cons

    I am of a certain age in this biz and have not attained a senior enough role yet, so I know my days are numbered with this agency, and my prospects are limited in tge industry as a whole.

    I started looking for another job the first week I started here, 2 years ago. Good people get fed up and leave. They know this place is not worth their time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not oversell the position you are hiring for or the agency. You are creating an environment where people are eager and happy to start working here then bitter when they realize they were scammed into working here.

    Senior Digital Marketing Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Toronto, ON
    Anonymous Employee in Toronto, ON
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Young & Rubicam in September 2013.

    Interview Details

    Interview was fairly standard, conducted by the head of the team on the automotive account they were hiring for. There weren't too many questions that stood out, just what you would expect: what was your biggest weakness, biggest challenge, tell me about yourself, why do you want to work here etc.

    Interview Questions
    • The only part of the interview that stood out was that I was left in the room alone for a few minutes to compose a tweet and a Facebook post for the account, and then she returned to discuss it.   Answer Question
