    Account Services Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Chicago, IL
    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I interviewed through an employee referral. The process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at FCB in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Was very difficult to maintain contact with HR despite their interest in speaking with me. Nearly a month passed between first contact and initial interview. Was kept waiting for 45 minutes past scheduled start time and interviewer could not answer basic questions about company - current hot accounts, team culture, future development. Very disappointed.

    Anonymous Employee
    Application Details

    I interviewed through other source. The process took 4 days - interviewed at FCB in April 2010.

    Interview Details

    The time between my resume submission and the call was about a month. From there I had an in person interview. The interviewer was very kind and informative. It was difficult and I felt she was very honest about the job. Admitting it would be a lot of work and long hours. The pay was not great for the hours and level of stress.

    Assistant Media Planner Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  Madison, WI
    Anonymous Employee in Madison, WI
    Application Details

    I interviewed through college or university. The process took a day - interviewed at FCB in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    The interview was conducted via skype, which was very uncomfortable. The lighting in the person's office who conducted the interview was awkward, making it hard to see their face and interact with them. For this reason, a phone interview would have been better because I wouldn't have been intuitively relying on non-verbal ques as expected with skype. The interviewer also wasn't particularly friendly or interested in interviewing me.

    Assistant Director Corporate Communications Interview

    Anonymous Employee  in  New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I interviewed through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at FCB in December 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was all set to be set up by the recruiter to interview for this position but at the last minute it was cancelled. A week or two later, they wanted to see me again. My recruiter arranged for me to call the Draftfcb HR person at lunchtime but she called me at my office, at the wrong time. I work in an open office space. I reminded her that I was supposed to call her at lunchtime. When I called at lunch time, she never answered. I left a message and never heard back from her.
    I was told they were no longer interested.
    That was weird.
