Yes, this is standard. Different people interview you looking for different things. Culture fit, etc.

☝️This. They’re thinking of the agency as a whole. Not just the creative dept. I cant promise a 100% success rate, but I’ve found it a good way to ensure that a shop isn’t just filling seats with mismatched personalities and d-bags.

Be careful. Sounds like a trap. Tell the accountnicks you LOVE when they change your work, submit thier ideas and sit on an email request from the client for days, only to send it to you a few hours before the work is due. You will definitely get the gig.

Everyone who interviews at my agency interviews with all departments. Including the owners. I think it’s a good sign.

If it's a creative shop then no, that's weird af. If it's a place that makes ads then yes, completely normal.
