I applied online and the process took 3 months - interviewed at RF Binder in March 2013.
Interview Details – Interview process was very long and thorough, and included a case study essay AND a writing test. If you make it to the final rounds of interviews, be very proud of yourself, you made it past a lot of people! They know who they are looking for and they are willing to proceed with a 5 round process to find the right person.

Account Associate Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 2 months - interviewed at RF Binder in January 2009.
Interview Details – Interviewed at a career fair, lasted about 30 minutes. I was interviewed by a young associate who held the position I was interviewing for. Some questions included: Why RF Binder? What was your favorite class and why? Why did you choose your major? How are you with prioritizing and organization? One memorable question was: What would be the title of your autobiography? But generally very standard. Left with the impression that I would absolutely make it to the next round, but had to repeatedly e-mail HR for about a month to get someone to tell me I was not selected for a second interview.

Junior Public Relations Associate Interview (Negative Experience; Average Interview)
I applied through college or university and the process took 7 months - interviewed at RF Binder in April 2011.
Interview Details – RF Binder manages to drag out the interview process like none other. My application was due in November and the process way dragged out until May. I had a 1 on 1 interview followed by a 6 page project/ paper I had to do. Then I had to go to the office and interview with about 5 different people in April. I figured they wouldn't drag too many people along this far but this was untrue. Over 20 of us were taken to the final round for 4 spots. The interview process is extremely time consuming and drawn out, especially given the low wages of the job. The people did seem nice tho.
