Agency producer here. I have an interview with an in-house agency tomorrow and I’m trying to prep myself/anticipate questions that the Exec Producer will ask. Any sample questions you guys can think of? I feel so rusty, it’s been over 5 years since I’ve interviewed anywhere. Very much appreciated!

I think the more important questions are the ones you will ask them. Does the in-house agency get to do the good work, or does that get sent to the AOR? Who are the creatives in house and what is their experience like? What is their process like working directly with the marketing department and CEO rather than being removed from it a step, does the in-house agency feel as though they can be honest and push back or will the “Clients“ drive things more than they would if they had an agency?

Where do you all stand on negotiating for money above the salary band? I was told by the recruiter that the range was $110-130k. After several rounds of interviews, I think the scope or work warrant $140k. Can I push for that or just shoot for the highest end of the cap? Any advice on how to bring this up would be appreciated too!

Hello Fishes,

Did anyone attend interview from Delta Airlines recently?


So ... I was scheduled to have a first stage interview and case study at PwC (2 hours), but they have now told me they will instead just be doing a 20 min interview - seems strange as this will be my first interview with them, is it a bad sign?


I have a virtual interview tomorrow through Teams - 1) what is appropriate to wear for a video interview? Should I treat it as an in person and wear a blazer? 2) I’ve used teams plenty on my work computer but never on my personal computer/through my personal email - any ideas on how to make sure it works? And 3) just any advice/tips in general, first interview since college!


How do I afford to live here? I feel so deflated. I’m 26 and make $50k which by itself feels like a total failure. I was expecting to be making at least $75k at this age and I feel like I severely undervalued myself when I was interviewing for my current role. I love my company and my coworkers, and see true growth here. But $50k is not a livable wage, and it’s starting to take a toll on me. I still live at home, and I just want to leave and grow up. But I can’t afford it. I give up.

I am currently working as a Project Lead/Manager for a health care firm and wanna pivot towards TPM roles at tech firms.

Need some inputs from current TPM’s on how their day to day work looks like? What the role as a TPM looks like? What are the challenges? etc…

Looking for some guidance/help..


Is it okay to use pen and paper to visualize problems in video interviews?
For solving complex SQL queries, I need to visualize the tables as an example but always hesitant to shift my focus to my notebook as the interviewers go to awkward silence, and are clueless about what I'm doing.
I've been failing many interviews because I'm hesitant to use the notebook during the interview. I'm able to solve the problem after the interview :(

How do you feel about / react to candidates, usually for higher level positions, being somewhat (or very much so) condescending during an introductory interview because you are younger than they are or not a professional in that specific field (because you are a recruiter!)? I feel like a lot of people get very offended by this and I don’t understand it.

Generally how much is the first year associate salary?

Associate in the NY office of a magic circle firm. Been really struggling with mental health issues for a long time - I feel like I’m begging for guidance/supervision and not getting any, and can’t get any support junior-wise either. I just get told I’m doing a “good job” but I’m pretty sure that’s just because no one is looking. Is the expectation just to magically figure out how to get things done solo, even if it’s the first time to do it? Is it better at NY-HQ firms that have more resources?

My internal video team is heavily leaned on for that type of info and do know a fair amount but I'd like to be more prepared all around. Google/tapping Producer friends is only relatively helpful.

We do have a lawyer that we can meet with but they're also not an expert and turnarounds are always very long so not as helpful as I'd hoped.

Hi friends! I’m an ex-art director that recently stepped away after 5 years to try to pivot into production. I know it’s not the typical career route, but I think I’ll enjoy the work a lot more and be happier overall. I’m also trying to move to NYC from Austin. Does anyone have any tips for me to help me get my foot in the door? I’m an extremely hard worker, I’ve just been struggling to get convos started since I don’t really have a great NYC network. Thanks all!
