    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Waggener Edstrom Communications (Seattle, WA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Seemed to be a lot of hoops to jump through. Phone screen, phone interview, writing exam, final interview. The people were nice and accommodating. The writing test seemed a bit cumbersome.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Waggener Edstrom Communications (Bellevue, WA) in May 2015.

    Interview

    I applied online and forwarded my credentials to the internship coordinator as well. I received an email the next day to set up a phone interview. The phone interview was very short (about ten minutes) and they asked pretty basic questions. I received an email a week later to set up a Skype interview the next week. The Skype interview was facilitated by two people, and lasted for about 15 minutes. I received a phone call the following week with a job offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Waggener Edstrom Communications (Bellevue, WA) in February 2015.

    Interview

    I was contacted via email by a member of HR to setup an initial phone interview. The phone interview covered basic questions about my background (education, experience, and interests in PR). I was then asked to come in for an in-person interview with the two supervisors of the intern program. The interview went well, covering a variety of situational questions. The interviewers were very friendly, and the office seemed very focused, yet casual. I was then contacted by the initial recruiter, and was told that I was one of many qualified applicants, but ultimately was not selected.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at Waggener Edstrom Communications.

    Most questions are behavioral, and not hypothetical, which does make them difficult. "Tell me about a time when you had to show leadership" "Tell me about a time where you were really proud of the work you did"

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Not really negotiable at entry level.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Waggener Edstrom Communications (Portland, OR).

    Interview

    Very professional and dialed out. The hiring staff really seems to have their pulse on the company needs and fit. I have only done two rounds of interviews so far, but I'm very impressed with the the process and understanding. These are very experienced people who have been through a lot and know what they are looking for.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Waggener Edstrom Communications (Lake Oswego, OR).

    Interview

    One in-person and a number of phone interviews... it took me four months to get hired, and I was considered for three jobs before I finally got the fourth (I was either overqualified or it was filled internally.) Communication with HR was spotty at best... promised calls not returned, etc. The staffing person I worked with no longer works there, but I am not sure how much better it is now.

    Interview Questions

    • I only remember someone asking what publications I read regularly--I don't recall it being a very squeamish interview.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    I asked for $2k more than I was offered, and they accepted.
