    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Hill & Knowlton in October 2010.

    Simple interview. Talked about resume and background of clients in the office. Overall very pleasant interview. The entire process took quite some time for them to offer me a job, I had thought they had rejected me as it was a good month before I heard back.

    Do research into standard PR salaries at other large PR firms and provide counter offers. Otherwise, H+K hands out low salaries unless you come in with salary requirements. Be firm.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Hill & Knowlton in June 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interview was very laid back. I met three associates total. Two came in together and then met the third afterward. It was a casual conversation getting to know my background and what I was looking for. The actual interview was good but they're not great with the follow up.

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Hill & Knowlton in July 2009.

    Interview Details

    First the phone interview, which went very well. Very nice HR staff. The process was very smooth, however, it took awhile to get the feedback I needed to make a decision. I would suggest keeping track of the length of time it was from the initial interview to the date when you have not received a confirmation one way or the other by
