I applied through a recruiter and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at OgilvyOne in March 2011.
Interview Details – I was contacted by a recruiter from Ogilvy and talked to her by phone, then brought in to talk to 3 ADs to discuss the different positions and my background/experience. Those were the most in-depth interviews. A third interview was with the Director, more as a formality it seemed.
Interview Question – At Ogilvy, we face a lot of strong personalities and strong opinions. Have you dealt with this before, and if so, how? View Answer
Negotiation Details – The original recruiter who contacted me was the one who made the offer in the end - not my current manager or any of the others that I report to. They really wanted me there due to my digital background, so negotiating was easy. I stated a salary and the recruiter offered more. It was a done deal.
The process took 3 weeks - interviewed at OgilvyOne in April 2011.
Interview Details – During the interview process, I was told about a great new initiative that they wanted to bring me on board to begin. Once I began working there, most of what I was told about the project, support, structure was completely different.

Interview Details – The new office on 11th avenue is great although the neighbourhood is quite run down and for most people who commute from outside the city it will be a bit out of the way. The scheduling and decision was quick. Nice friendly people treated me to lunch. An interviewer was off sick and I wasn't informed which left me wondering what to do and who to contact...felt like I had been stood up. Very few if any technical questions. Mostly questions revolved around previous job experience pertinent to the position I was interviewing for. Weird though that when I asked of of the interviewers about professional development he answered that it wasn't a company where one would like to stay for long. Besides usua l prepare questions on:
1. How you made a mistake in a previous job and what steps you followed to remedy.
2. Your top 3 professional achievements
3. What would your last boss say about you
4. Describe how you made recommendations to non-technical audience.
5. What would make you leave your job in future.
Over all an average interview and I hope positive results.
