    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Leo Burnett.

    Interview

    Easy interview. I met with two people from the department. Main questions were about using SAP and former experience. The interview time allotted was 30 minutes for each but they didn't last that long and I thought I did bad because they were so short.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week. I interviewed 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 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL) in February 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process takes a little while because there are so many hoops the recruiters have to jump through and approvals that need to be made for hire. Interviews are also pretty long- usually lasting 3 ish hours. From there- there are usually about 3 rounds of interview. Make sure you know your stuff! This is not a place to "grow" this is a place to excel!
