    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Ketchum in September 2015.


    I applied online and received an email request to schedule a phone interview a couple weeks later. The HR person I spoke with was very friendly and honest. I was given time to answer unexpected questions and heard back a week after.
