They aren’t. You may feel the interview is easier than when you cold interviewed the first time. That just comes down to experience. You now know what it’s like on the inside and how we structure client responses to problems.

I had a big 4 interview last week and I’m not sure I’d call it hard….

Interviews are interviews. You get bonus points in the scoring for being from a "good brand" (Big 4 are sort of middling brand at this point for most competitive roles even across the Big 4).

I don’t think they are “easier” but I think you are more confident going in as you have a pretty good expectation of what you’re going in for - and so you feel less stress, and that the process is easier as a whole.

I acted (regrettably) foolishly when I was new to advertising at 24, I got drunk at an office party and apparently acted like a clown (I had a drinking problem and have since worked on it) now & 15 years later, people still bring my antics up - I feel using it to tarnish my reputation even though I l’ve bettered myself. I wonder if because I’m a WOC I’m more targeted but you never know. Hard to hear people still gossip & make fun of me about it. Don’t feel it’s helped my reputation...
