    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at FCB Global in September 2014.

    Interview

    I interviewed on-campus through a university-sponsored career fair. Before career fair I networked with FCB alumni and talked with them about their internship program. At career fair I had a short conversation at their booth and submitted my résumé. That night I was called for an on-campus interview the next day. The on-campus interview lasted about a half hour in length. It took them over a month to respond with my offer.

    Analyst Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at FCB Global (Chicago, IL) in May 2014.

    Interview

    Honestly don't waste your time with FCB Chicago if you don't live in the area. The interview process was the worst process I've been through. I made it to the final step and they couldn't give me a real reason why they didn't hire me. It took them a month and a half to give me a decision after my final interview. I tried to reach out to the members of department a couple times and they didn't even respond. I regret spending so much money traveling to Chicago for the interview. The Analytics department act like they don't care. I passed the analytics test which consisted of analyzing sales data, creating a powerpoint, and answering a couple brain teaser questions. The department knew I had the ability to do the job, but still decided to hire me without a real reason,

    If you didn't graduate from Northwestern or UChicago, or if you are not foreign or white, you might as well not even apply. Honestly I'm completely disappointed with the agency and I I'm glad I didn't get the job. Every time I think about the experience, I just can't believe how horrible I was treated by the Strategic Analytics department. If I could do it all over again, I would've never applied. Please don't make the same mistake I did.

    Marketing Intern Interview

    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at FCB Global.

    Interview

    After an initial applicant screening process, I was one of ten individuals to receive an interview for a marketing internship. Being located far from Chicago, the interviews were conducted using Skype. I was hopeful that the experience would be positive given the feedback I had heard from previous interns, however this did not turn out to be the case. The interview itself lasted no more than 5-10 minutes, I was asked general marketing/advertising interview questions, and the interview was over. The interviewer was nice enough, but did not look up at the screen more than once. After the interview was finished, I received an email that said they would be making their decisions and that they would notify us by the following Friday. After two weeks of no response, I decided to email the HR recruiter to find out what the situation was. Upon which I received an email saying that they were still deciding. While I am sure that this particular experience is not representative of the company as a whole, it was in fact a negative.

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

    Interview

    Initially spoke to an HR representative at a college career fair. Was emailed by this person to schedule a phone interview, which went well. They asked the normal questions (your three best traits, favorite class, etc). Kept in semi-regular email contact as well, where I was assigned a (pretty difficult) assignment.
