    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Hill+Knowlton Strategies in May 2016.

    Interview

    The interview process took place over 2-3 weeks from initial phone screen to offer. I was first called by a recruiter in New York for a quick phone screen, then had a phone interview, then a team interview, then a written test before the offer. Everyone was very friendly and there was constant communication throughout the whole process.

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Hill+Knowlton Strategies (Austin, TX) in April 2016.

    Interview

    Brief phone call (maybe 30 minutes) and then asked to send over a diverse range of writings so they could look at my work. Still waiting to hear back - the next step is a call with several people in the office. HR person was lovely. Questions were normal, mostly about my background specifically about how it related to the position at hand.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Hill+Knowlton Strategies (Washington, DC) in October 2010.

    Interview

    Simple interview. Talked about resume and background of clients in the office. Overall very pleasant interview. The entire process took quite some time for them to offer me a job, I had thought they had rejected me as it was a good month before I heard back.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Do research into standard PR salaries at other large PR firms and provide counter offers. Otherwise, H+K hands out low salaries unless you come in with salary requirements. Be firm.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Hill+Knowlton Strategies (Dallas, TX).

    Interview

    Several phone calls with different levels of management, very painless. First with a recruiter then with direct supervisor and finally with local general manager. Overall I felt my supervisor did a great job describing the position and outlining expectations. My general manager a little bit less but that is to be expected in a company where some people are embedded and others work a normal agency schedule.

    Interview Questions

    • Several questions pertaining to research and general questions about how I tackle issues. Mostly generic.   Answer Question

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Hill+Knowlton Strategies in July 2017.

    Interview

    I applied online and received a call back very quickly. I set up an interview with a VP and was told to call at my interview time. I called at the set time and was told she was unavailable. The receptionist said that they would call me the next day to reschedule. I did not receive a call the next day so I called and left a message and sent an email. A few days passed and still nothing. This is very unprofessional. If they chose to move forward with another candidate I understand, but I'd appreciate a response after I took time off and made arrangements for an interview that was canceled without any prior warning.
