    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at RF Binder (New York, NY).

    Interview

    I submitted my application via email. Two weeks later, I received an email to set up a phone screen interview with a member of the team. Three weeks after my phone interview I received an email for a writing test that they gave me two weeks to complete. A week after I submitted my writing test I received a request for a final round of interviews, which I completed virtually. I met with three people of all different levels and then completed a timed writing test. All together the final interview took 2 hours. The HR departments was very good about communicating with me when they were making decisions, but I ultimately ended up accepting another position before I heard back about my decision.

    First round included submitting resume, next was a writing assignment (two essays), then asked to the office for three interviews, a writing assignment/grammar test, and an interview with HR. Everyone I met with during the interviews was extremely friendly and welcoming. They did not ask any questions to try and trick me. They were genuinely interested in why I wanted to work at RF Binder and why I wanted to get involved with a career in PR.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at RF Binder (New York, NY) in March 2015.

    Interview

    Very lengthy process. Applied using an employee referral. After reviewing my resume, they asked me to complete two short writing assignments. After, I was called in for an in-person interview session in the afternoon at their offices in NYC.

    I met with 3 interviewers of various levels in the company and then was asked to do a short grammar test and writing assignment (same question as the previous writing assignment I had submitted - they just want to see how you write on the fly), and then had an conversation with HR.

    Overall, very pleasant experience!

    Still waiting to hear their decision...

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 5 weeks. I interviewed at RF Binder (New York, NY) in March 2013.

    Interview

    terrible, they make it seem that they are all solicitous and generous but in the end you realize that it is all a smoke screen. They promise a great, solicitous culture, but they pvovide nothing of the sort.
    They are gossipy, hateful, spoiled, archaic people whom only want the greater good form their high paid executives.

    Negotiation

    it seemed fine up front, they spoke all the correct language, but it was all just BS in the long run. Dysfunction, predjudice, malice and lies.

    Extensive interview process with a series of in-person interviews as well as a writing test. Make sure you know a lot about the company and are excited by the prospect of extensive media relations. Your personality is also important as they will want you to show that you are capable of being casual and conversational while still retaining a level of professionalism.
