    Vice President Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at FleishmanHillard in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online and was contacted by an HR recruiter, had an initial HR screening that I have to say was a lot more thorough than any I've had before from a PR firm (which is a good thing since I applied to one position and she thought I was a better fit for a different one!)

    From the HR screening I was asked to have a phone interview with an SVP, and coming off of that I was asked to come into the office where I had four other face to face individual interviews and then they asked me to stay a bit longer to meet with the GM.

    All in all from first contact to final interview a quick 15 days!

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly, for this particular interview the most difficult part was the HR screening, which was good because the recruiter really worked with me to see what I wanted out of a role and if that would be a good fit with what they had available.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    A bit of negotiation was available to me.

    Senior Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at FleishmanHillard.

    Interview Details

    The hiring process was coordinated almost exclusively through FH's corporate office in St. Louis. This was fine logistically, but took out some of the personal experience that tends to come with interviewing for a new career. My only interactions with the office where I would be working came with my face-to-face interview (I had an initial phone interview with the St. Louis recruiter) and writing test. It was difficult to gauge whether I was a good fit for the office because of this process.

    Interview Questions
    • FH prides itself on hiring PR professionals with backgrounds in journalism, or close ties to the journalism industry. You will be asked to name journalists that you know and have relationships with.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    FH uses the hiring practice of many other firms - they ask you what your ideal salary will be and what your current salary is. This puts pressure on the applicant to downplay your salary expectations - don't! FH matched my "target" salary right off the bat, which made me wish I had asked for more initially.

    Account Executive Interview

    Application Details

    interviewed at FleishmanHillard in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    FleishmanHillard has an intensive interview process, in large part because the firm places a strong emphasis on corporate culture and bringing in "the right people." The interview process includes an initial call with the talent development coordinator, a phone interview with a team member, an in-person interview with four team members and a two-hour writing exam. The interview itself is very informal and more conversational than other interviews I've experienced.

    I applied online – interviewed at FleishmanHillard in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Met with three people, interview took about 3 hours (2 hours for a test). Generally was a positive experience. Was offered a position two weeks later, which I did accept. I did not think the interview process was difficult, and everyone I spoke with was a good experience. Did take a few weeks between initial contact and phone call to set up interview.

    Managing Supervisor Interview

    Interview Details

    The people who interviewed me were a bit aloof. Also, I was a bit insulted by the question of why I wasn't higher up on the ladder already. This is largely based on the fact that my husband's career has moved us around the country, but not relevant.

    Reasons for Declining

    This company is a machine. I was told that half of my time would be spent on new business, which isn't a good sign for an account team position.
