    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter who set me up with an initial phone call with her. After that, I came in for three different interviews with various members of the team I would be working on. I was asked to come in to speak with two more people who didn't have a chance to meet with me that day. The whole process from initial email to job offer was about 3 weeks.

    Media Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Accepted Offer

    Interview

    I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3+ weeks - interviewed at Ogilvy in October 2008. I had good referrals at the time and this helped a lot with the interviewers. The questions were related to digital media. Regarding metrics and process of implementing and optimizing a campaign. The interviewers were already the people that I would work and this also helped to understand how the agency worked and what they were expecting from this opportunity.
