    I worked at Wieden + Kennedy (HQ) full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I consider myself lucky to have had a chance to work at such a great environment and with such great people. I learned much during my time. There is a reason why it is the best ad agency in the business.

    Cons

    Long hours. Weekends. Relatively low pay compared to other agencies of W+K caliber. Burnout is high. Can be somewhat political.

    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at Wieden + Kennedy (HQ).

    Interview Details

    I was contacted about an opening at W+K by a recruiter and quickly dove into the interview process. She and I had a quick phone chat discussing my experience and it was only a week or so later that I found myself in Portland to meet with the team. They were all outgoing and personable. I had prepared thoughtful responses to all the typical interview questions but was surprised at how little they asked. It was almost as if they were sitting back and waiting for me to talk for the full 5 hours without any prompts. That said, the interviews went well and I left feeling confident. I sent a thank you note and several follow ups/voicemails checking in after the interview. It was weeks before I got a response that they had already filled the position. Additionally, I was never reimbursed for the travel expenses they offered to cover.
