    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Leo Burnett.

    Interview Details

    2 Interviews, manager & senior manager. Pretty easy, asked about knowledge of systems, current team workload, and the needs of the department. I only worked with the HR group as a "home base," they didn't really push me in any direction one way or the other.

    Interview Questions
    • When I asked about training, there wasn't a formal department training, and that has hard to hear coming stright out of College.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    I did negotiate for a higher salary, and was awarded something higher than initial offer.

    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Leo Burnett.

    Interview Details

    Met with HR first, and then with account teams on four different occasions. One-on-one interviews were 30min, and sometimes I met with more than 5 individuals in one day. You should come with good questions that aren't just about work-life balance. Do your homework once you find out what account you will be interviewing for. HR is very kind and helpful.

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Chicago, IL
    Interview Details

    Fantastic informational interview, went through my book with a creative recruiter. They were a bit difficult to get in touch with, but dropping off your resume directly to the office, and addressed to a specific person will be beneficial.

    Interview Questions
    • Make sure you can explain case studies and background info in regards to various campaigns.   Answer Question

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took a weekinterviewed at Leo Burnett.

    Interview Details

    Came to my school to recruit interns, screened portfolios in advance and scheduled interviews based on the selected work. Interviewer was incredibly friendly and positive--she made the process feel more like sitting down with a friend than it did a formal interview and was clearly head-over-heels for the company.

    Interview Questions
    • Frankly, there were not many actual questions that I can recall, and none were surprising or unexpected.   Answer Question
