    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a weekinterviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Pretty standard. The interview was held with HR and the AD. Focused on experience, and the job description. The interview process was relatively short, but detailed in that a lot of information was shared on both interviewer and interviewee parts, prior to the discussion of an offer. Being able to really speak to the account background is key.

    The HR person was very nice. I also had a phone interview with the director she was also nice however i never heard back. I'm not quite sure why I didn't get the job but I guess it wasn't meant to be.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter to let me know they were very interested in my work. Then they took another 5 days to get the interview scheduled. I had a 9am interview with 4 different creative directors that took about 3.5 hours. it was very casual, almost too casual, but long. I was then led to the door and told they would be in touch. After sending several thank you notes and emails, radio silence. Emails went unanswered for 4 weeks (not even a "we are still in the process, or we will get back to you") until i finally got an email saying they were not interested and I was not the right "fit." but wait, then another email came in saying they might have another position open for an AD/UX creative that they just might be able to modify for my specific talent and background. I was an AD 6 years ago and certainly was not interested in going back for a long shot and /or a lesser title. I also felt very let-down on my expectations of the company itself. I had always aspired to work at Leo Burnett, but I can't see myself going to work for a company with such poor recruiting and communication skills. This was truly disappointing.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    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

    I did negotiate for a higher salary, and was awarded something higher than initial offer.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    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.
