    Interview

    In person and skills review..occurred before 2016, but the system wouldn’t let me put the year. I was referred by someone, and I received a fair offer. I didn’t take it due to various reasons.

    The interview was for the Edelman Immersion Program in Chicago. The interview was pretty straightforward. The interviewer just asked a few questions about myself, a few highlights from my resume, and my interest in the company. I only went through the first round of interviews.

    Interview

    First filled out online application, then had initial phone call with HR. That went well so I moved to the next round and was asked to provide 3 weeks worth of availability to skype interview. I didn’t hear about until the third week, alerting me that the interview would be that Friday. I sent a number of follow ups, and heard nothing during those initial 2 weeks were I thought I had lost the interview. Ultimately interviewed with two different people on two different days.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Edelman.

    Interview

    I was reached out to by the recruiter for an initial phone screening, then connected with two senior-level employees from the team for a 30 min video call (per person) a few days later. A day after that video call, I shared a phone call with the person who'd be the manager for the role, and a few days later received a 90-minute writing test. Overall the process took 14 days from email to offer.

    Paid Social Interview

    Negative Experience

    Interview

    I applied online and HR reached out to me about scheduling a phone screening about a week or so later. The recruiter cancelled the phone screening last minute. She asked to reschedule due to a previous meeting running over. I understand that unexpected things come up so I was completely fine with rescheduling to another time. We settled on later in the afternoon, but the recruiter ended up cancelling last minute again and asked to reschedule for the next morning. I informed her that my schedule was wide open and I could accommodate anytime that worked for her. The recruiter ghosted me, and I have not heard from the company since. Super unprofessional, and a complete waste of my time.
