    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at APCO Worldwide (Washington, DC) in August 2012.

    Interview

    I applied via university recruiting website in June to receive a phone interview in early August. The phone interview was informative than interrogatory - basic questions involving my experiences in both college and previous internships. Two days later, I was interviewed at their office with four intern coordinators. The in-person interview was comprehensive - going into nook and cranny of my resume.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide (Washington, DC) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online, and received an email that I should clear a few moments of my day to be interviewed via phone by APCO. I was contacted and interviewed by 3 members of the marketing client service group. The questions were pretty standard informational questions and behavioral questions. The people were very nice, and made me feel comfortable.

    I suggest you review your resume and the position you are applying for and leverage how your past experiences make you a great candidate for the position - standard stuff.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide (New York, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Found the internship through browsing the web, and felt I had the qualifications to apply to APCO. Initial online application required answering standard questions (why APCO) that sort of thing, as well as writing a pretend op-ed to test writing skills. Then I was moved on to a phone interview with the same sort of standard questions (what publications do you read? give examples of your strengths). I had to wait a few days after the initial phone interview to be moved on to a second one, where it was a bit more about personality traits (what do you do in your free time). A day or two after that I was extended an offer.

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide (Rome (Italy)) in July 2014.

    Interview

    I applied through my university's career's office and I got a phonecall to schedule the interview approximately a month after. We set up the interview for the following week. I was given an article to summarize in English for 30 mins. This was a time management/language skill set test. Then basic interview questions. Nothing really unexpected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at APCO Worldwide.

    Interview

    Once I applied through their website, they replied to fill out a form which they wanted within a tight 48-hour deadline. Questions were in three parts, each related to my ability to write succinctly and to a variety of audiences.

    Once passed that stage, they then set up a call. Topics discussed include current affairs and behavioural questions.

    Eventually, I met them for a chat. The people are fantastic! They looked at my CV and discussed the experiences I've had in writing. And few days later I heard back from them.

    I applied online – interviewed at APCO Worldwide.

    Interview

    I applied through the website, and got contacted through email a while later asking to schedule a phone interview. The first interview was one-on-one, and it seemed more of the interviewer telling me about the company and the intern program than me being questioned. I was asked to do a second phone interview, this time with two interviewers. It was a bit awkward but it was fine.

    It was a conversational interview and I was expected to ask most of the questions. The interviewer kept asking if I had any more questions. It was relaxed. It was a very nice office, but I did not get a tour.
