I applied through college or university and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Wieden And Kennedy.
Interview Details – First met through college job fair info-session. Followed up and received Initial interview over phone. First woman I spoke to was very nice and impressed with my background, but would not be a person I would work directly under. The next round was a phone interview with what would be my supervisor. She was much tougher and much less impressed with what I had to say.
Interview Question – (In response to a class project I had worked on): "Why do you think that is good enough to work?" Answer Question
Reason for Declining – I didn't get the original full-time position I applied for in Portland HQ, but got an internship offer for their NY location.
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 5 months - interviewed at Wieden And Kennedy.
Interview Details – Very long process, took 5 months to secure an offer.

I applied through an employee referral and the process took a day - interviewed at Wieden And Kennedy in August 2010.
Interview Details –
My interview experience was probably atypical compared to that of someone coming in cold. I knew some people that worked there, and they recommended me and got me the interview.
The process for me was very informal, once we found a day and time that worked for myself, the manager who I'd work under, and the department head. These were the only people I met with, other than a quick tour of the area I'd be working in.
The department head meeting, coming after the manager meeting, seemed somewhat perfunctory – no big surprise questions that I hadn't gotten in the manager interview.
The manager asked about the amount of experience I had with specific functions I'd be doing and software apps I'd be using, what my career path aspirations looked like, and negotiated the salary. Since I came recommended, it was pretty easy.
This is a high-energy place, so I'd suggest being on the more enthusiastic side. Personality and popularity are a part of the culture.
Unless you're interviewing for a total suit position (do they ever wear them? Hard to recall...) dress casual or fashionably hip casual. Jeans and a reasonably nice shirt are about as formal as you need to go.
Negotiation Details – Working for this company will likely enhance your talents, connections, and resume. They're aware of that, and that there are many other people who want the job you're after, so negotiating a higher salary is tough. Probably the only way to gain much ground is to demonstrate some unique skill or area of expertise that adds value over a typical applicant for the same position.
