    First step is interview screening with HR personnel. Then you come in and meet with about 5 different people who would be on your team.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Edelman in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    Rather intimidating. Got an initial call from a recruiter out of state, was then brought in for an in-person interview. People are intimidating, try to make you feel dumb and useless in interview.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Edelman in March 2013.

    Interview Details

    Submitted materials and they called pretty quickly afterward. Pretty basic phone interview; 1x1 was basically just a run through of what they were looking for and seeing how I would fit in with the culture. It was fairly painless, especially since I had been preparing for a rigorous interview.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Edelman in November 2012.

    Interview Details

    The initial communication and interview organization was extremely seamless. While the process did take quite some time (over a month), they were very thorough in their process. Overall, the experience was better than any other company I have interviewed prior. They were very transparent with the direction they were going each time I interviewed.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Edelman in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    First I applied online and eventually had a phone interview with an HR rep. Later that week I got an e-mail back from the rep saying another, more appropriate position opened up and they'd love to have me for an interview.

    After scheduling a good time to come by, I visited the D.C. office for an in-person interview, which consisted of two different interviews with two staffers each (first two account supervisors, then two vice presidents). I also had a 30-minute grammar and vocab test.

    Upon completion of the day's schedule, I left on good terms with the HR rep and was told she'd be in contact with me.

    I received another offer earlier this week and messaged the Edelman contact to see where I stood. She said they were leaning toward another candidate and wished me the best of luck.
