    Met with basically the entire team before being offered there position. It was great to get to know everyone I would be working with prior to making my decision. However, I accepted an offer elsewhere. The company seemed like a great atmosphere.. except the NY office was a bit dated.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dan Klores Communications (New York, NY) in March 2017.

    Interview

    I was brought into the office for an interview after a phone screening. I was told I would be meeting with one person and ended up meeting with three additional people. It was fine, but I didn't feel prepared and the whole thing seemed very rushed and disorganized. The internal recruiter followed up with me about a week later saying they were working on an offer but it took another 2 weeks to actually get something official.

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Dan Klores Communications.

    Interview

    I was at the office for a few hours meeting with various people who had never seen my resume. It made me feel like I was an animal on display. I should have asked to meet with the people I would be reporting to but didn't know to ask that at that stage of my career. Had I met these people in advance I would NEVER have taken the job.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Dan Klores Communications (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    Interview was pretty long; met with five people all individually but they were all extremely nice. There was also a thirty minute writing test on the computer which also was pretty easy. The only thing I did not like is that they told me I would hear either way if I got to position or not and did not hear anything back. Also seems like the job had a load and was extremely underpaid. It's a foot in the door to the business, but people need to make enough to live off of.

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dan Klores Communications (New York, NY) in November 2014.

    Interview

    I met with two of the three bosses I would be assisting plus two hiring managers. They told me what they would expect from me and I had to give them a writing sample. Speaking with them, I had no indication that they were crazed lunatics out for blood. The interview was very easy to get through.

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Dan Klores Communications (New York, NY) in April 2012.

    Interview

    I came from out of town in order to interview for an entry-level PR position. I never suspected PR would be the right place for me until coming into this firm. The receptionist and HR were polite and efficient, cool looking office. I got to sit down with one of the VP's and talk with him about the job. The salary offer was obnoxiously low, but I saw this as a place with upward mobility and possibility. My attitude changed and was very gung-ho about this opportunity. Then I met my potential supervisors...

    I have never met such...bad people in my entire life. When they entered the room I stood up to greet them and shake their hands. No eye contact was made and I was given a half-hearted handshake. I was asked basic questions about my background and interests. When the three weren't asking me why I didn't have a background in PR they seemed bored, unengaged, even hostile. Either way, they found an excuse to leave the interview before I was done asking them about the position. Any good will the VP had instilled vanished in the first 10 minutes.

    I spent some time preparing for this interview and traveling to NYC. I did not expect to easily win the the job, but I also resent getting treated poorly. After that interview I would not have worked for DKC if they had doubled my salary.
