I applied through college or university and the process took 1+ week - interviewed at FCB in February 2014.

Interview Details – At University Career Fair I was told there were no open positions but they would keep my resume on file. Two weeks later I was contacted by HR because of a recent budget increase. Had two interviews that were very awkward. HR started the interview with, "Why Missouri?" - I think it was very obvious by both parties that we did not mesh well.

I had another interview set up shortly after with an account coordinator. This interview was very awkward as well.

I was told I would get a response in roughly two weeks, 24 hours later I was told I did not get the position. I was not bothered by this news.

Interview Question – Why Missouri? --- as if I picked my university based on the fact it is in BFE USA   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at FCB.

Interview Details – Initially spoke to an HR representative at a college career fair. Was emailed by this person to schedule a phone interview, which went well. They asked the normal questions (your three best traits, favorite class, etc). Kept in semi-regular email contact as well, where I was assigned a (pretty difficult) assignment.

Interview Question – "What are your two most favorite and hated advertisements most recently seen?" Difficult because of all the options and the nuances of the answer.   Answer Question

The process took a day - interviewed at FCB in December 2009.

Interview Details – Did resume drop and was contacted for a in person interview. Interview questions were fairly standard..."tell me about yourself.." etc. Asked a lot of specific questions about why I was interested in advertising and why I wanted to work at draft specifically. Also asked biggest weakness etc. Was first interview so was unprepared but not too difficult.

Interview Question – Name a recent academic study you have read, why did it interest you?   Answer Question

I applied through college or university and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at FCB in May 2012.

Interview Details – I had an interview with them over Skype where I was asked questions to determine my creativity while thinking on the spot. There were only a few standard questions, the rest were questions that I had never been asked in an Interview. Make sure to know a few of their ad campaigns as they will ask a few questions regarding your favorite ads.

Interview Question – What is your favorite and least favorite ad that is currently airing?   Answer Question
