Porter Novelli Interview Questions & Reviews in Washington, DC
Getting an Interview
Account Supervisor Interview (Neutral Experience; Difficult Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Porter Novelli.
Interview Details – A very prompt, but very involved process. Prompt meaning they were good with communication and next steps, and involved meaning there were many rounds and I kind of wish they had consolidated it. The questions were a bit repetitive too.
Also, the personalities of those interviewing you can vary from formal to pretty informal, and by the book to very honest.
Interview Question – Most difficult question, they named some of their more boring clients, said they were boring, and asked why I would want to work on that. Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Didn't negotiate, but definitely should have.
