Three 30 minute interviews. Each interviewer had his or her own interview style. One was more traditional in asking to go through various experiences I had listed on my resume. One was more animated and asked some more random questions about life outside of work experiences. One was quicker and only had two simpler questions.
- Tell me something about yourself that you haven't yet told to the other two interviewers. Answer Question

Phone interview first then scheduled a follow-up onsite interview. Meet 4 team members and directors. After that, get the third on-site interview to meet more team members. The chat was nice and they are really kind. The working space is open and casual.

I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at OMD (Los Angeles, CA) in March 2010.
The HR department was extremely kind and moved rather fast to get in me to meet the right people. All individuals were very engaging and made me feel very comfortable. Overall it was a great experience.

- What is one thing that you find difficult about working with someone else? Answer Question
- No OfferNeutral ExperienceEasy Interview
The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at OMD (New York, NY) in November 2011.
The overal experience was very informal. I did not meet with HR, but rather 2 associates/directors for the respective account. I was there for approx 2 hours, and relocated to 3 floors throughout the entire process. I followed up several times. Finally, after 3 weeks of not generating any responses, I sent an email in which they responded with a simple "oh yea, by the way, we found someone more qualified". I felt this was very unprofessional since they informed me that they would be the ones to reach out to me upon their conclusion of reviewing candidates. I still have an immense desire to work for this agency, so I will continue to be persistent with all contacts that I have.
