    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.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Energy BBDO (Chicago, IL) in January 2012.

    Interview

    It was clear that Energy BBDO leadership feels empowered to find a place for someone who they see potential in. After my initial interview with the department head, we talked about what a job might look like, what their needs were and how my skills would add value. I had an offer elsewhere so pushed them to get things moving, and they were responsive. In all, I sat down with probably eight people. Loved them. The people were the most appealing aspect of the job.

    Reasons for Declining

    Comp offer was terrible. I wasn't expecting that much, but the offer really blew me away. Plus, I didn't really want to market pharmaceuticals.

A few days later the offer was in my hands. Very simple, but it can be different depending on the job you interview for.
