    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Spark Communications (Chicago, IL) in November 2014.

    Interview

    1 online application followed by 2 phone interviews, first with a recruiter and second with a current employee, usually Supervisor status or higher. Rather straightforward, behavioral questions about past experiences on resume. To get your foot in the door, seems like it's important to have a referral. Important to emphasize project-based experiences and taking initiative/being proactive. Weird thing was, you list your team preferences on the online application but these preferences are not really taken into account when being assigned to your team. HR should work on this.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Spark Communications (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Honestly I over prepared for this interview. Interviewees were nice but they were so busy that they asked pretty routine questions. Interviewed by four different people that were employees of Starcom, Tapestry, etc. Realized that this is a position that has very high-turnover so they need to fill desks quickly.

    Was an intern so received an offer over the phone with no interview. For the internship, I had a phone interview and a skype interview.
