    The process took 4 months - interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather.

    Interview Details

    First there was a Skype interview with an HR, followed by 3 phone interviews. Asked the normal behavioral questions, with a few that were harder than normal. The Skype interview was more difficult since it was a little more awkward. The process took a long time, about 4 months total.

    The process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was more like a personality test than an interview. No questions about you, your experience, why marketing or even why Ogilvy. It felt very dry and like a standardized process. Be prepared with stories and lessons about "times you failed, times you dealt with conflict..."

    I applied through college or university - interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather.

    Interview Details

    Did first round interview via Skype because I was abroad in London at the time. Was asked a series of behavioral questions that were all very similar to each other. Mostly situational about working in teams or dealing with difficult people. Interviewer also seemed very disinterested during the interview.

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    It was a short interview on phone. Roughly 5 minutes. I was asked more or less from my CV only. I had mentioned a digital marketing project, and I was posed questions based on that.
    I found the HR to be quite cool. She was pretty casual with asking questions, and did not bother too much about formalities.
    I was then later interviewed inside the company by one of the persons from the Account Management Team. I was interviewed with one more guy. However I was selected between the two of us.

    Negotiation Details
    I could not perhaps negotiate. This is because they had already said that they would not provide any stipend during the internship. Since it was a big brand, I did not wish to lose this chance.
