What’re your thoughts, if any, on Proof? (Jim Beam’s in-house agency)

I thought it seemed like a cool place, so I applied for a creative role about a year ago. I had connections on the inside who sent a good word and my resume mirrored almost exactly what they were looking for. I never got called and my follow up to a recruiter went unanswered. Not that I was entitled to a response or interview, but it still left a sour taste in my mouth. Good luck if you decide to interview—I’d be interested in a follow up here to let us know how the process goes.

I was put up for the ACD gig there recently by a recruiter. I have a lot of spirits packaging and branding in my book so was hoping to at least get an interview. Feedback was that my work was great but not on brand for Beam. Uh, you do get that I can’t have work that’s perfectly on brand for you till I’m working with your brand right?

Most of the people I know that have worked there were the freelance and hated it but then again this was while it was still out in the burbs.

Interviewed there once and the would-be boss was such a spaced out prick over the phone that I took myself out of consideration. Think he was managing Proof, MD or something. You'd think the Nike's Just Do It campaign was from him he was talking himself up so much.

@CIM I think you talked to my boss

I freelanced with them and wouldn't do it again, took them 3 months to pay me.
