    Reasons for Declining

    Not as digitally savvy. Name is a legacy within the ad agency arena, but so far behind the times of where it should be.

    Application Details

    The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Ogilvy & Mather.

    Interview Details

    First there was a Skype interview with an HR, followed by 3 phone interviews. Asked the normal behavioral questions, with a few that were harder than normal. The Skype interview was more difficult since it was a little more awkward. The process took a long time, about 4 months total.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Ogilvy & Mather.

    Interview Details

    I was able to interview shortly after submitting my resume, however, the entire interview process is quite lengthy. It took 3 months before I was actually hired. When I spoke to others on my team they had mentioned going through a similar process, so it does take awhile before you hear back.

    Interview Questions
    • All the questions were basic. They asked about my experience, but nothing too difficult or specific. It was very casual, more like a conversation.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Ogilvy & Mather in May 2013.

    Interview Details

    The entire process was relatively simple. I submitted my work through HR and a few months later received and email from them asking if I was still interested in doing the internship. Afterwards I had a phone interview which consisted of a few questions and a few weeks later I got my offer. The questions were all really reasonable and easy to answer.
