    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather (Atlanta, GA) in February 2012.

    Interview

    The application process was pretty much straightforward and everything was online.

    The planning and appointment of the interview was very convenient as they came onto my campus to conduct it.

    I had just one behavioural interview with them and it was your typical interview.

    They asked me why Ogilvy and why I would be a good fit.

    Typical behavioural questions like:

    Tell me about a time when you went against the team.

    Tell me about a time when you made a mistake.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather (Atlanta, GA) in February 2016.

    Interview

    They recruited at my school and I was required to send an application to both the my school's career site and their company site. The next step was a one on one behavioral interview with a senior or account executive. The third and last step would be an invite for super Saturday.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather in February 2011.

    Interview

    Obviously Ogilvy is a very established firm, and coming in to the interview, I was very nervous. The interview involved a lot of behaviorial questions that I had not been asked during other job interviews, so that kind of left me thinking on my feet. I ultimately did not get the offer, but wish anybody else you interviews for the Associate position the best of luck.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather in February 2012.

    Interview

    After submitting a lengthy application, Ogilvy selected a handful of individuals to partake in on-campus interviews. This consisted of two 1:1 interviews with constituents from their local branch. One individual was a higher level executive - she was short and I could not get a good read on her at all. The other individual was much more lively and we had a great conversation. After interviewing, we had to wait another 4 weeks to see if we passed on to the second round interviews.
