    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Starcom MediaVest.

    Interview Details

    Received an email setting up an initial phone interview, which lasted around 30 minutes. Standard behavior questions. Waited about 4 weeks for another email asking for an in office interview, which consisted of four 30 minute interviews with a range of supervisors and a director. Really nice people, with more behavioral questions, mostly finding out if you're a good fit for their team and company.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 months - interviewed at Starcom MediaVest.

    Interview Details

    A bit of time between interview, offer, and actual start date. Depends on whether or not they have seats open at the company. The interview process begins with a phone screening (10-15 mins) and then you get invited to the office. This consists of 4 interviews and a lunch afterward. HR will contact you within a few weeks to tell you if you've been recommend for hire or not, and things flow from there.
