    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Digitas in December 2012.

    Interview Details

    Pretty straight forward set up. Initial phone screen going through my resume, why Digitas?, why do you want to be in digital advertising? Set up a date to come into their Chicago office. Real laid back atmosphere. Had two 2v1 interviews back to back - again more behavioral. Nothing really difficult or unexpected. Asked about my previous excel work

    Art Direction Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Digitas.

    Interview Details

    I had an interview with four people (one at a time), all creatives (this after an initial phone interview with HR). Two were Art Directors, two were copywriters. They mostly let me talk and explain my portfolio. They really liked that I brought a print version of my portfolio and a copy of my resume for them to take with them after the interview. It's very intense, because I got about 40 minutes with each person, so after 4 people I was exhausted.

    Interview Questions
    • Don't expect them to ask you "typical interview questions", they mostly just seemed to want to see my work and hear my reasoning. Also, they wanted me to ask THEM questions, so I was happy to have researched them all and had previously thought of smart questions to ask them. Don't hog the conversation. Show your interest THROUGH the questions you ask them.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    It was an internship, so I didn't argue the salary.

    SEM Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Digitas.

    Interview Details

    Applied online through the company's career website. Received an email from an HR Recruiter asking to chat on the phone. Got on the phone with the HR recruiter and she got right to the point asking about my relevant experience to the position. I talked about how I took part in the Google Marketing Challenge. Through this challenge, I gained hands-on experience crafting, analyzing, and optimizing a Google Adwords Pay-Per-Click campaign to benefit a local business. The recruiter was impressed with this and told me she would be in touch about a possible interview in-person. The following week I had an interview at the office. It consisted of four 30-minute interviews with different people. I interviewed with some pretty high up people in the SEM department. Very laid back with each person, they really just wanted to get to know me and asked about my relevant experience. Two hours later I left and was told by the recruiter that I would hear back by next Monday (I interviewed on a Monday) and Wednesday at the latest. Didn't hear back until Friday in an email that said I interviewed well but they went with someone else. Overall positive experience.

    Interview Questions
    • One person asked me what I might do if the impressions for an ad were too high and what I might look at to get a better understanding. It was the most challenging of all the questions.   Answer Question
