Difficult Interview

Application

I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather.

Interview

The 1st interview was a phone interview. These types of interviews are almost always awkward, and the interviewers didn't help ease it at all. It felt like they made it more awkward. A Skype interview was the next stage. It wasn't incredibly difficult and was a lot better than the phone interview.

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process was pretty efficient. I recently applied to the position through their company website and had a response within a day. Afterwards, scheduled a phone interview with me and proceeded to have an in person interview. Good experience overall. I received an offer recently and am currently deciding whether to take it or not. The environment is very friendly and personable.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather.

    Interview

    I don't really remember fully. I just remember applying online, emailing people who worked at the company, and sending a personalized thank you card after (which I think helped). The interview was on the phone and I just remember odd questions being asked. I was not asked about strengths or weaknesses. I was asked why I wanted to work at Ogilvy.

    There are also 2 essays you have to write. One was on why I wanted to work for Ogilvy and the other was about my biggest regret.

    The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather.

    Interview

    Interview process was extremely lengthy- first there were phone interviews with 2 people in HR, and over a course of a week I had phone interviews with four people in accounts. The accounts people were friendly and seemed genuinely interesting. The experience wasn't horrible, just very long and tedious. The HR people were also friendly, and it seemed like the work culture was close-knit.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at Ogilvy & Mather (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Knew someone who worked at Ogilvy and who forwarded my resume. Met with a woman who only just switched companies to Ogilvy but would be heading the new team they needed the intern for. The AE I had been emailing back and forth with did not actually interview me. Interview was pretty standard. Tell me about yourself, past experience, how your skills would match this position, etc. I thought it went well but they ultimately went with a different candidate. When asked for feedback, I never got a response.
