    Financial Analyst Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed 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.

    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed 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.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took a week. I interviewed 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

    Producer Interview

    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL) in November 2011.

    Interview

    The actual interview itself was seamless. They put you in a conference room and you meet with several people from the department within a couple hours. The frustrating part was dealing with the HR department that set up the interviews. It was very rush rush rush/we need an answer when they reached out, but then would go silent for days and weeks at a time after meetings. The entire process took almost 3 months with about 3 weeks of silence in between each interview/chat with HR.
