    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Edelman (Chicago, IL) in May 2017.

    Interview

    HR was very friendly and helped me with questions along the way. I had a virtual interview. I had two interviews. Both were very relaxed and fun. The first interview was more about my skills which was quite a lot of grilling followed by questions. The second was done by a senior HR person and they wanted to know more about my personality through some problem solving questions.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    Extensive and very organized interview process. First, I was phone screened by HR. Then I had a call with the hiring manager. I then took a personality test and had a day of in-person interviews - with the ability to meet with multiple team members and obtain a true feel for the role, the company as well as the client/client challenges and opportunities. After the in-person, I took a test and then received an offer.

    Intern Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman (Chicago, IL) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Phone call and then in person interview. Phone call was mostly just going through you resume and the in person interview was about 40 minutes more in depth. The phone call was mostly going over my resume and in person is when we discussed more about the internship, why I wanted to work there and got to learn more about the overall work environment. It was pretty laid back, obviously still in a business setting but it was low pressure.
