    PR Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    No Offer
    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at FCB Global (London, England (UK)) in January 2017.

    Interview

    Probably one of the worst experience of my professional life to date. Went through four interviews, met every single person of the department, was assigned three different tasks, asked me to take a psychological and behavioural test but ended up saying that they need more time to decide. Then they disappeared.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at FCB Global in October 2012.

    Interview

    There are lots of interviews, up to 8 different team members. May seem overwhelming, but they are checking to see the fit with the team because that's often the #1 factor. Lots of problem-solving type questions are asked, but all looking for the process used to solve rather than the answer itself.
