    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FCB Global in March 2017.

    Interview

    The team was personable, bright, and easy to talk to. I spoke to a recruiter on the phone, who passed me onto a senior strategist, who passed me on to another senior strategist. All of them were fun to talk to, clearly intelligent, but relaxed.

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Chicago, IL
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. I interviewed at FCB Global (Chicago, IL) in March 2017.

    Interview

    First I met with HR, then talked to four others: the VP of Project Management, the director, an associate director, and a senior project manager. They seemed not sure what to ask me, and I think my experience coming in was a home-run, since they needed to staff a healthcare account. It would have been nice if they provided more detail about roles & responsibilities.

    Assistant Account Executive Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at FCB Global (Chicago, IL) in February 2017.

    Interview

    Applied through university recruiting. A recruiter emailed me a couple of weeks later asking if I was still interested in working for them, and 1 week after that we scheduled a phone interview. It was a conference call with 4 other people listening, it lasted about 20 minutes. It was a negative experience not because I didnt get an offer, but because they were not friendly and did not make me feel welcomed in the phone call, it was very dry.

    Strategic Analyst Interview

    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at FCB Global.

    Interview

    I had a very negative experience while interviewing with this company.

    A day after I submitted my application, a recruiter reached out to me with a few follow-up questions that then led to an initial phone screen a week later. Because I was traveling, we agreed to catch up when I returned. We had another chat at that point, and while the position I had applied to before had been filled, we discussed some new relevant opportunities, and she told me she would want me to speak with the director next.

    I never heard from her until about 3 weeks later when she reached out to let me know that they would begin screening for new positions the next week, and she wanted to know if I was still available and interested. I responded that I was still interested in learning more about them, but I never received a response. Two weeks later, I got another email from her letting me know that they had new positions available (I assume the same ones as before?) that she wanted to speak to me about. After chatting about those the following week, she finally scheduled a phone call with the director that week. While speaking with him, he told me that they would want to move forward with bringing me in for an in-person interview, though it would have to be after the holidays. I told the recruiter this and said I’d wait to hear from her with any updates about this.

    I never received a response or update even after the holidays, so I followed up again with her. She responded to me a week after that email asking if we could chat to set up the in-person interview. On the call (to which she was 20 minutes late) we had discussed that I would follow up with her the next day regarding the best time for me to make the trip. After doing so, I received no response, so I followed up a week later and still received no response.

    I have never had such a terrible recruitment experience with a company before. I was strung along the entire time (3-4 months!) with delays and flakiness. Beware if you interview with them – they clearly don’t value their candidates, and I would hate to find out how they treat their employees!

    Interview

    Very casual and unprofessional interview process. It took way too long for them to get back to me just to let me know that the position had already been filled. The interview questions were not very relevant.
