    Interview

    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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    I had a phone screening with an HR person who then asked me to come in for an in-person interview. I met with four different people, in 30 minute increments, that all worked in the Client finance side and their interview questions were pretty standard.

    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.

    Pretty straight forward, more about your ability to work with others than technical.

    Interview

    I had a phone interview, and we kept missing each other, but once we got on the line, it was a pleasant conversation. Very casual, friendly, hardly felt like a job interview.

    Interview

    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

    Reasons for Declining

    Great program, but I was more keen on working with another Chicago multinational agency.

    Application

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

    Interview

    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
