    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi LA.

    Interview Details

    Four interviews. Two with HR, and two with executive producers. A very pleasant experience with a diverse group of innovative, talented people. The interviews were fairly open ended. They were more interested in hearing my story and what I wanted to share willingly rather than quizzing me on specific, difficult questions. They were excited to hear about any questions I had for them.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a weekinterviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi LA.

    Interview Details

    Was contacted by a recruiter and set up a phone interview with her. The initial phone interview was about 30 minutes. I was asked questions about my general experience and how I worked and what I was looking for in my next career move. They talked to me about the company, their culture and the account.

    The next step was an onsite interview with several people. Overall I met with 5-6 people from different areas. Each interview was about 20-30 minutes each. The type of questions were:
    - Tell me about your work history.
    - Tell me about your experience with mobile.
    - What's the biggest team you've worked with?
    - What's budget ranges have you worked with?
    - How do you manage a project?
    - Are you more waterfall oriented or agile oriented?

    Was told I may need to comeback to meet additional people.

    It was a simple process but I wish the recruiter would at least have sent an e-mail notifying that I wasn't chosen for the position.

    Human Resources Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi LA in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    I had heard about the opening from a friend and contacted the Associate HR Director who I had worked with previously. We did a short phone interview. I then came in to meet with the Director of Talent. We had a great conversation. I really connected with her and the team. I then came back and met with a couple of hiring managers. I really liked everyone that I met with. They were all very positive and felt that Saatchi LA is a great place to work. The culture though highly results focused was also very open and collaborative. The company/executive team really values their employees and their input and happiness. They value work life balance and training and developing their employees. I was offered the job two weeks later. For college students, be sure to do several internships with relevant companies/projects throughout your college years which will better help you land a position upon graduation. Continue to learn and grow on your own, develop your skillset to show that you are self motivated and are always thirsting to learn more!

    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi LA in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    It was a little nerve-racking because it's such an amazing company and each time I made it to the next round, and didn't want to get my hopes up, but fortunately it worked out. You definitely need to be on your feet through the entire process, because they have some creative/interesting questions, but in general just make sure to review beforehand. Definitely look at their website, in particular what "love marks" mean. Everyone I spoked to was extremely nice, professional and made me feel comfortable. The LA office was my first choice, because I really got the overall feeling the company really cares about who works for them, including interns. It's a 2 month paid internship, and part of the program involves pro-bono work, this was another major reason I really wanted to work for them, it says a lot about what kind of agency they are. So many other prestigious agencies like Saatchi & Saatchi know they can work their interns like dogs for 3 months unpaid and there would be a hundreds of applicants to take that position. I'm sure Saatchi knows they could do that as well, but they don't. When I applied, 7 interns were chose over 300 applicants, just FYI. I just hope they hire their interns!
