    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Interbrand in June 2014.

    Interview

    First had a 30 minute phone call with the HR department - just getting a gauge of your experience, your interest in the position and salary requirements. Then was invited in for first round of interviews. This was three 30-minute interviews in a row with people on the consulting team. All really nice and pretty casual.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Interbrand (New York, NY) in June 2014.

    Interview

    Reached out to HR contact via LinkedIn. After our phone interview I came in for an in-person interview and met 4 people. The following week I came back and met 3 more people. They then asked for references and for me to fill out the online form for a background check. I followed up via email a week later and called two weeks later- never heard anything. Was disappointed that they didn't have the courtesy to at least give their candidates closure or feedback on why they were not suitable for the position.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Interbrand in March 2014.

    Interview

    I applied to Interbrand for their summer internship. They understood that an internship is a learning experience and took into account that we did not know the industry within the interview. The interview mostly consisted of questions relating to personal experience and personality to make sure you fit in a certain position and culture of the company.

    Interview

    Although I didn't set high expectation for the recruiting process after reading reviews, I was very disappointed with the experience that I had - got rescheduled many times, as I never got called on time - which made me feel so unrespected. It has reached the point that I made up mind to discontinue my pursuit of the position. I respect Interbrand as a leading global branding agency, but it does seem it first needs to educate its own employees on how to represent its brand to all constituencies including prospective candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Interbrand (New York, NY) in January 2014.

    Interview

    Very unorganized, very lingering, very confusing. HR is not good at communicating throughout the process. I had to follow up many times and never heard back in the end. I believe that a candidate who has been through 3 rounds of interviews at least deserves a 'no, we picked someone else' if he is not chosen.

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Interbrand in October 2013.

    Interview

    I was looking for a dramatic career change and they made it possible! It was an online, fast, friendly and smooth process, that lasted no longer than 2 weeks. It started with the submission of my CV, then a call followed and then a e-meeting with a very laid back and friendly atmosphere. I loved it!

    very slow and there is lack of respect from hr side, not giving notice after an interview. People working there (and interviewing you) are really nice. Too many interview rounds!

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Interbrand (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I had a connection with someone in the department and after sending my writing samples, cover letter and resume, was called in for an interview. I had a brief period of time where I would be available to interview and thought we were set to meet judging by the emails. I arrived in New York and no word from them. I waited in a restaurant near the office just in case. Because I was still keen on the job, I wrote again the next day and they scheduled a day of interviews in the future. I met with 7 people at separate times. The interview was in an open space near a bunch of offices...slightly distracting. I had one interview after the next, and the interviewers conferred between meetings. I thought I did reasonably well. They sent me a second test the next week which I completed as quickly as possible. No word from them, despite writing thank-yous to each interviewer and trying to remain in touch with the HR person. I then received a phone call, 3 weeks later, telling me I didn't get the job.
