    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, had a phone interview, then was brought in for an interview with six different people of varying levels. One of the senior decision makers was out of town so I was unable to meet with them since I was an out of state candidate.

    The next day I was asked to progress to a writing test and was told they would get back to me soon with next steps. Finally heard back after emailing for an update a week later that they had gone with another candidate.

    There's a little wiggle room, but not much. If they say they can't offer you a higher base salary, ask for a signing bonus.

    Graphic Designer Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide.

    Interview Details

    I applied through an online listing and the process took approximately 4-6 weeks. I was called in for two separate interviews. The interviews are fairly simple and straightforward if you do the necessary prepwork for the beforehand--no really out of the blue questions that I can recall. The first round of interviews consisted of multiple group interviews with potential supervisors and teammates, as well as a brief overview of the company and position with a staff member from HR. The second round of interviews was another group and I was then given a skills assessment test—fairly straightforward if you know your stuff. I was kept abreast of the process through HR, which really seemed on top of everything, and was offered the position about a week and a half later.

    Negotiation Details
    I personally didn't negotiate because they offered me a killer benefits package and great work environment, which was worth far more to me than the money, but I'm sure there would have been some wiggle room had I asked.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide in July 2013.

    Interview Details

    Phone interview was very easy. Went through the resume. Asked to talk about how your experience and skills fit the position. And couple of days later they would get their email for 1:1 interview. But someone told me they got group interview. It really depends.

    Negotiation Details
    go through their website before the interview. Because you would get more credits if you really know their company and understand their culture.

    Project Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Washington, DC
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeksinterviewed at APCO Worldwide in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was long, but that's not uncommon from my experience. I met with many different employees, 6 on the actual team I'd be working for (junior, senior, and exec level), 2 execs, and HR. There was a writing test, which is also standard for the industry - it was challenging but enjoyable to do, which is how I knew I would like the job. The people I met with were very warm and sociable, and had a great reparte with one another. I could definitely sense the congenial environment that was described.
