    Event Planner Interview

    Positive Experience

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at The Siegfried Group.

    Interview

    It was a great process. I was always being looped into the conversations that were being had and was interviewed for about 2 months before being hired. They were very kind and open and not only interested in my professional skills but my personality and whats important to me overall in life.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at The Siegfried Group (Wilmington, DE (US)) in March 2019.

    Interview

    Had to take 3 different personality tests and fill out a self-assessment in preparation for the interview. In-person interview lasted 4 hours long and I met with 5 people. The interview was very much about culture fit and not so much about skill-set. One of the interviewers began the interview by telling me that I was in no way qualified for the job and told me to explain why I was interviewing in the first place. Other interactions with the team members made me feel off and confused about what job I was even interviewing for, since each person seemed to think the job entailed something else. The entire process was very intense and left me feeling very uncomfortable. When I received my feedback from the internal recruiting team it was harsh, very negative, and hurtful. Although I wouldn't have taken the job and did feel it wasn't a good fit as well, I never asked to have who I am as a person criticized. I also didn't feel as though the interview went so poorly that it warranted such extreme feedback. I feel like the team should have been a bit more diplomatic in delivering their rejection, especially since I never asked for any input. The entire process left a bad taste in my mouth.

    Leadership Advisory Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at The Siegfried Group in July 2018.

    Interview

    It was a phone interview that was schedule to be half hour, and lasted one hour.

    The interviewer asked a number of questions on my past experience, including what type of transactions I have experience working on.
    Also asked a number of questions that felt like boilerplate questions (i.e. Where do you see yourself in 5 years; What are your personal goals) that did not make sense in a phone call situation.

    Interview ended with the interviewer giving me 3 minutes to ask questions, and he wasn't able to articulate what types of projects / opportunities he has available.

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at The Siegfried Group (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    The interview process is very long- about 3 hours. First you meet with 2 people who will give you an information session on the company. Next you will meet with 1 director and then a MD. They are all fairly friendly. No questions were difficult or technical - mostly just background and behavioral

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at The Siegfried Group (New York, NY (US)).

    Interview

    My interview process consisted of three steps: HR phone screen, Director level phone screen, and in-person interview. Both phone calls consisted of the usual early interview questions about resume experience, interest in the company, and what kind of role/company you're looking for. The in-person interview is a heavily scripted three hour block sometimes with multiple interviewers. There is a strong focus on polish of applicants and ability to field more difficult what-if and behavior-based questions. Personally, I found the final round up tight compared to the initial phone conversations as well as every other in-person interview I've had even with Fortune 50 companies. I found it ridiculous that the last in-person conversation had one question about interests outside of work as we slogged through a 25 question standardized list. A while after, Siegfried recruiting sent an Amex gift card as a means of spreading the brand which made the marathon interview worthwhile.
