    Interview

    I had 3 30-minute interviews - each was pleasant and relaxed - mostly conversations about my resume and past experience/ discussion of the role and what it would entail. Be prepared to discuss all experiences on your resume and come with thoughtful questions for the interviewers. They want to see that you understand the media industry and that you are passionate about working in it and being devoted to phd.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at PHD Media.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview with a recruiter and than an in person interview at the office. Met with multiple people. When I first got there I could not find anyone. There was no reception area. I stood in the doorway for a second and was looking around to find someone to ask for help. When I finally found someone I asked for the person I was scheduled to meet with. I felt super unwelcome and like I was barging in on people when I was scheduled to come in. Felt like they wanted me to leave the second I got there.

    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at PHD Media (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Personable and casual. Constantly shifting offices. Overall not intimidating nor did they try to grill me on technical detail etc I ended up interviewing with my supervisor, AMD and a Director who was actually on another brand.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at PHD Media (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    Well I came in a suit, just having traveled on the subway, and my interviewer was very confused, lol. He seemed really chill and made me feel comfortable. We talked about the culture of the company, and the accounts I was interviewing for. Overall they were really nice and candid, and it gave me a good sense in terms of the people I wanted to hang out with. I knew I would be able to feel comfortable at the company, and thus perform my best. Maybe even slightly uncomfortable at the awesomeness, which makes me perform even better.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at PHD Media (Chicago, IL) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Applied online and had an interview scheduled a couple weeks later. I had three separate mini interviews with people I would be working under as well as a media math test. The test was not too hard if you know how to do basic math. The interviews were very relaxed and extremely informative. I felt like they were trying to gain a sense of my personality and how I would mesh with the rest of the team and not just focusing on how much knowledge I had about the company/industry. I instantly fell in love with my manger, she was awesome!
