    Strategic Planning Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at BBDO in November 2012.

    Interview

    I applied online to a LinkedIn job listing based in Munich, Germany. I applied online and recieved and invitation to do a phone interview with two members of the department. They did not ask many questions as they had a pretty good idea of me from my CV and Cover Letter and instead immediately asked if I had questions. I had some, but I should have probably had more and better omes.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at BBDO (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Calm and casual. I was expecting the interview process to be much more nerve-wracking. However, the lady who interviewed me was young and very kind. This was my first interview so I did not expect the interviewee to go that in-depth. She asked basic questions about me along with a few questions about the industry.

    Interview

    The interview process was great--I fell in love with BBDO and all of the wonderful people who work there. I completed a two Skype interviews with senior staff and then was offered a job. HR took a little long to get back to me, but BBDO is well worth the wait!

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at BBDO (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I add an informational interview with someone in HR. The BBDO office environment is incredible, and it would definitely be a very exciting and fun place to work. I am a senior graduating in June, so I was a little too early to apply to a particular position, but it was really helpful to see the office and get a foot in the door.

    The process took 4 days. I interviewed at BBDO.

    Interview

    After being being referred by a friend, I met with HR and then had a series of interviews with people on the account I was interviewing for. It is important to have a friend to help you get your foot in the door because they receive so many applications. This is the best way to remove yourself from the clutter if you don't have much ad agency experience.
