    Project Associate Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at APCO Worldwide (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Applied via their company website and heard back within two weeks. First had an initial phone interview where I spoke to the HR department. The questions were pretty general, make sure you can sum up what the company does pretty well. Next is a video interview with two or more staff members, usually includes a higher level excutive so be presentable. Because I am out of state my video was done via the Zoom app. Again the questions were pretty standard, they really want to know about your previous experience. It honestly felt like a conversation between new friends. Afterwards I completed a two hour long writing test. Not questions you can really prepare for so just try your best, though I did not find it too difficult. I heard back with an offer about a week and a half later

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. I interviewed at APCO Worldwide in April 2017.

    Interview

    It was a 30 minute interview via Zoom/Skype. Even if it seems like the interview would go long they were good about cutting it at 30 mins. I had two interviewers. It took 3 weeks or so for them to get back to me because of the high volume of applicants. My advice: ask good questions!! If you don't ask questions to show you're curious about the world/APCO/industry, they won't be interested in you.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at APCO Worldwide.

    Interview

    The interviewers are super nice and approachable. They ask basic questions such as why APCO, or things pertaining to your major/studies, nothing unpredictable. The interview setting was very informal as well which make you relaxed and lay back. It is more like talking to a family friend versus an employer. I would definitely recommend apply for this company. I think it will be a great team to work in

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at APCO Worldwide (Washington, DC) in March 2016.

    Interview

    There was a required video essay submission about why you would make a unique addition to the team at APCO. There was also a resume based application. HR called a few weeks after the application was submitted. The questions were geared towards experience both as a student and in other internships that fit the global needs and communication skill requirements. After one round of interviews and a call with the team for introductions I was offered the job. It was over all fairly quick with a lot of work in the front end to get an interview.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at APCO Worldwide (Washington, DC) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I applied online, and received an email that I should clear a few moments of my day to be interviewed via phone by APCO. I was contacted and interviewed by 3 members of the marketing client service group. The questions were pretty standard informational questions and behavioral questions. The people were very nice, and made me feel comfortable.

    I suggest you review your resume and the position you are applying for and leverage how your past experiences make you a great candidate for the position - standard stuff.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at APCO Worldwide (New York, NY) in May 2011.

    Interview

    Found the internship through browsing the web, and felt I had the qualifications to apply to APCO. Initial online application required answering standard questions (why APCO) that sort of thing, as well as writing a pretend op-ed to test writing skills. Then I was moved on to a phone interview with the same sort of standard questions (what publications do you read? give examples of your strengths). I had to wait a few days after the initial phone interview to be moved on to a second one, where it was a bit more about personality traits (what do you do in your free time). A day or two after that I was extended an offer.
