I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at OMD in July 2010.
Interview Details – The head strategist talked to me about my background, experiences, and what I liked to do. He also asked me what animal I would be - that was a weird one. I asked him about the job and what it involved - he seemed to tire of my questions, though I thought they were good ones to ask. The next day I got a rejection notice. I guess I didn't impress him or he just found someone who was better.

Interview Details – I had multiple phone interviews with the HR manager as well as multiple media planners before coming in for an office interview. At the office interview, I was there for almost three hours and sat in one room where about 5 different people came in to talk to me. The office is pretty open but doesnt have many perks of an agency atmosphere such as a bar, lounge chairs, drinks, food, etc. The dress is very casual - jeans and flip flops.

Interview Details – This interview was pretty standard for any type of media agency. I was expecting some sort of media test (every media related interview I had previously consisted of a test), but it was just a question/answer interview.
There were two people from HR interviewing me at the same time, which is quite common, EXCEPT one of them just sat there in silence. Barely spoke one word to me. So I found that to be a little odd, and very distracting for me in terms of making eye contact with them even though it was the other person doing all the talking. Suffice to say I didn't get the job. The mute person really threw me off my game.
Interview Question – They asked a lot of questions about my past experiences, and wanted me to go into extreme detail about what I specifically did in my prior jobs. Answer Question
