I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2 months - interviewed at APCO Worldwide in September 2013.
Interview Details –
Multiple rounds of interviews which seemed a little pointless- could have met with all relevant staff in one meeting rather than spreading them out- seemed poorly organized. I was kept waiting for staff to show up which made me feel unimportant to them. Not a great first impression
Writing tests understandable.
Negotiation Details – No negotiation on salary- this is what we're offering and this is when you start..... this should have been a red flag.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at APCO Worldwide in March 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.
Interview Question – What made you want to pursue a career in Communications? Answer Question
I applied through other source and the process took a day - interviewed at APCO Worldwide in May 2011.
Interview Details – I had a short phone interview one day. Went over my resume with the hiring manager. She was more interested in the parts of the resume that I felt weren't important for the job, and had no interested when I tried to bring up my experiences that were applicable to the position. She had a pretty negative outlook from the beginning, which caught me off guard. I was originally really interested in the position and APCO in general, but after the interview I lost all interest.
