    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at BBDO in June 2014.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview with HR at BBDO, and then with 2 account directors two weeks later. HR is essentially impossible to get in touch with, and isn't the best at following up.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at BBDO.

    Interview Details

    I add an informational interview with someone in HR. The BBDO office environment is incredible, and it would definitely be a very exciting and fun place to work. I am a senior graduating in June, so I was a little too early to apply to a particular position, but it was really helpful to see the office and get a foot in the door.

    The process took 4 daysinterviewed at BBDO.

    Interview Details

    After being being referred by a friend, I met with HR and then had a series of interviews with people on the account I was interviewing for. It is important to have a friend to help you get your foot in the door because they receive so many applications. This is the best way to remove yourself from the clutter if you don't have much ad agency experience.

    Application Details

    I applied in-person. The process took a weekinterviewed at BBDO.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty straightforward. As interest increased, the interviewee is sent hierarchically up the rank to interview, up to VP level.
    Complete assessment of skills are conducted initially, and questions are appropriately couched.

    Interview Details

    I applied online to a LinkedIn job listing based in Munich, Germany. I applied online and recieved and invitation to do a phone interview with two members of the department. They did not ask many questions as they had a pretty good idea of me from my CV and Cover Letter and instead immediately asked if I had questions. I had some, but I should have probably had more and better omes.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at BBDO in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Ich hatte mich über LikedIn beworben. Nach 20 Tagen bekam ich eine Rückmeldung. Dann hatte ich ein relativ einfaches und entspanntes Bewerbungsgespräch mit zwei Planern. Es war eher wie eine Unterhaltung. Zu den Fragen zählten "Warum diese Firma?" und meinen Hintergrund in einer Art zu erzählen, die für die Werbebranche relevant war.

    Die Fragen wurden meinem Hintergrund entsprechend geschneidert. Daher hatte ich das Gefühl, dass sie mich wirklich besser kennenlernen wollten und mich nicht nur über die Dinge ausfragen wollten, die in meinem Lebenslauf stehen.

    Selbst wenn ich kein zweites Gespräch bekommen hätte, hatte ich eine tolle Unterhaltung, was wahrscheinlich eine Menge über die Kultur des Unternehmens aussagt.

    Applied through LikedIn. Got back at me after about 20 days. Had a relatively easy, relaxed interview with two planners. It was more like a conversation. Questions included "Why this company?" and explaining my background in a way that was relevant to advertising.
    Questions were tailored according to my own background. Thus I felt they really wanted to know me better rather than merely asking me the same things that are on my CV.
    I felt that even if I didn't get a second interview, it was a great conversation. Which probably tells a lot about the culture of the company.
