    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Energy BBDO (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    The process was simple. I do have to say that if you have people inside the agency that are interested in the position or are up for a promotion, you should not coordinate interviews with outside candidates and waste their time for something that at the end you know it will not happen. I'm definitely glad that they are promoting from the inside but make this assessment before starting the interview process with outside candidates.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Energy BBDO (Chicago, IL) in April 2015.

    Interview

    Interviewed as an art director / copywriter team. Long, arduous, although everyone was very friendly. Flew us in on red-eyes so we weren't particularly "fresh" and bubbly for the 8 hours of selling ourselves. Everyone seemed happy to take the time to talk to us and spoke well of the agency, probably too well.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at Energy BBDO (Chicago, IL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    I met the recruiter at a recruiting event and we spoke 2-3 more times after. Months later, she reached out to me in March asking if i was interested in Summer Internship position and i accepted. They only gave a week to think over. The Summer Internship overall was a great experience except my supervisor didn't have time to mentor me, which made my individual project with her much harder. Energy BBDO provides a summer project for the interns and intern group gets split in half to compete each other. I thought that was something that actually made us work and use our brain the most. Overall great people and fun place to work!

    Interview

    Was over the phone and pretty pain less. I had been selected through an associate creative director reviewing my work at a portfolio review where they liked my work. To be entirely honest I am filling this space here after to comply with the amount of writing required by this site.
