    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FleishmanHillard (New York, NY) in November 2015.

    Interview

    Referred by a current employee. Had a pleasant interview with a recruiter week later, then two phone interviews and a writing sample. Then I never heard back, despite sending multiple polite follow-ups (after sending thank-you's.) Please give the courtesy of at least saying I'm not qualified/what they're looking for/etc. rather than cutting off all communications after progressing through several rounds.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at FleishmanHillard (Saint Louis, MO) in November 2015.

    Interview

    They were very informative. They told me before the interview where to park, how to validate the parking, gave me great directions, and they gave me a schedule of the entire interview. This included who I would be meeting with at what times. Before the interview, HR sends you a questionnaire which includes all of the different work groups at FH. I was to choose on a scale of 1-10 my interest in each of the groups. They use this to choose where you will most likely be working if you get the job.

    The interview all together took about 2.5 hours. There was a face-to-face interview with the intern coordinator and another person. Then, there was a 2 hour writing test. After the writing test I was told the process that would follow. I had made it to the second round of interviews. This

    Public Relations Interview Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Dallas, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at FleishmanHillard (Dallas, TX) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I was slightly disappointed with this interview experience. A talent acquisition coordinator contacted me several days after applying/speaking with my referral to set up a phone interview with two intern coordinators. The phone interview went well and the coordinators were very friendly and upbeat. After the phone interview, I was instructed to complete a writing test, which has to be completed in two hours from the time you confirmed that you received it. The writing test was pretty long but interesting. It was divided into sections - Media Research and Writing (pitching to reporters, etc.), Social Media Content Writing, Research and Analytics/Social (drafted a research audit summary for the client), Proofreading, and an Interests Assessment (work style).

    I did not complete the entire writing test within two hours, but was invited to interview via Google Hangout (in place of an in-person interview due to location). The Google Hangout interview was not as pleasant. I had two different coordinators this time that were not enthusiastic at all. The questions asked were "too standard" in my opinion, and the coordinators seemed as if they did not want to be there (one more so than the other). I understand the process of interviewing hundreds of candidates can be grueling, but that is part of the job.

    I was told that I would be contacted on Monday, but did not hear back from them until the following Friday. I am extremely thankful for the feedback I received in the email and look forward to improving the areas listed. I do not agree with the statement, "we encourage you to gain some PR experience and apply for another semester." I believe that is what an internship is for.

    The talent acquisition coordinators I dealt with were very helpful, and I was extremely grateful to have communicated with them.

    I hope this information helps future candidates!
