I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Digitas in October 2013.
Interview Details – I applied online (through the Digitas website). I heard from a recruiter a few weeks later and we scheduled a phone interview. It was more of a conversation than an interview - very informal, exploring my background and giving some detail (though not a ton) about the position and the S&A group. He also briefly discussed salary parameters for the role.
I was then scheduled for a round of in-person interviews. I met with four members of the S&A team (ranging in role from manager to vp) for 30 minutes each. Everyone was really friendly and conversational. They all asked about my background and work/education experiences. Nothing crazy. There was one "case question", which was a market sizing question.
I left that day feeling satisfied with the experience. The recruiter I had been working with called a few days later to share my feedback. Unfortunately, while he said the team really liked me and thought I would be a good fit for the company, my background wasn't specifically what they were looking for for this role. He did suggest that I reach back out if I see any different roles that interest me (in the specific groups where the team felt I would better fit).

The process took a day - interviewed at Digitas in February 2011.
Interview Details – I was referred to the system by an existing Digitas employee and was told I would receive a call soon (within the next couple of days). When I didn't get the call, I gave it a few more days because I know people can get busy. 2 weeks and no call later, I decided to follow up with my referral. After some pushing, I finally got the call.
The interview went pretty well until the end when she realized she interviewed me for the wrong city. Said positions actually open up quite frequently and would keep my resume on file. I asked if it would be okay to keep in touch with her regarding this since obviously the career site is pretty out of date. 2 follow ups later I still haven't heard back.
