    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ monthsinterviewed at Sparkpr (New York, NY) in June 2012.

    Interview

    My interview process (which took place a few years ago) was long. It took about 4 months to land my job at Spark. It began with a phone screen with HR rep, followed by two rounds of in-person meetings. Spark not only asked for professional references but media references (which can be delicate because many reporters will not give references for PR people). The total time it took to land my job at Spark was nearly 4 months and I was offered a number of offers with higher salaries but went with Spark instead. Still with agency after several years and have been promoted since joining the firm.

    Really wasn't able to negotiate. The offer was decent but I wanted to work for Spark because of the firm's reputation.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1 dayinterviewed at Sparkpr (San Francisco, CA) in January 2009.

    Interview

    Probably met with about 7 people, everyone from the CEO to most junior. All were great except for one. I was questioned about everything on my resume and experience, preferences etc. I was there for several hours and it was tiring by the end. I got the offer and accepted.
