    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Publicis.

    Interview

    The process was very lengthy. They have you start out with a few projects at which point you should decide to either decide to work extremely hard on or just drop out of the process.

    They then analyze your work and if they like what you see they will call you in to interview in person. After the in person expect to have some follow-up interviews with more leadership.

    Interview

    Applied online. Heard back in about 2 weeks. Interviewed at Leo Burnett in Chicago, IL. Asked a lot of questions relating to working in time lines/managing time.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Publicis (Plano, TX).

    Interview

    They didn't put my up in a hotel, so I flew in that morning and left in the afternoon. They provided a town car for both trips. They did not provide lunch or anything like that.

    Be prepared, if they decide to extend an offer, it has to be approved by N. America HQ in NYC and then Global HQ in Paris. Expect a solid 3-4 weeks AFTER they create the offer for you to actually get it

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publicis (New York, NY) in January 2016.

    Interview

    The interview was too informal. The person I was interviewing with didn't reserve a room so the interview was done in the middle of the office which was distracting. I had two interviews and both interviewers seemed annoyed. I didn't get the sense that they were listening to my answers. Thought it went well but they never responded to my emails afterwards..

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Publicis (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I was given a phone interview with a recruiter from the agency. She then set up a date for me to meet with three people from a specific account. In the end, I was only able to meet with one of the team members because the other two had last minute obligations. I feel I was at a disadvantage since I didn't meet the other two team members.
