super casual interview, she mainly asked about my resume and talked to me about the whole program. however recruiter kept having to reschedule the interview, and it became more frustrating than exciting by the time i interviewed.

    Interview

    I received a quick request for interview after submitting my initial application, so we immediately set up an interview date. The day before our scheduled interview the HR person I was to interview with rescheduled. I understand things come up, so we set a new date no problem. When the day came, a couple hours before we were to have our call she cancelled on me again. It got to the point where I didn't even get to interview within the window that was set by HR for the entire intern pool to interview in the first place. Then when we finally had our call, she rushed me off the phone and barely gave me the time of day. Pretty sure they had already filled the positions. Why string me along and ask me to interview if you're not even going to give me a fair shot? It was a very unnecessarily frustrating process.

    Application

    The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi (New York, NY) in March 2010.

    Interview

    I applied for the internship after seeing it listed online. It took them roughly a month from when I applied for them to get back to me, and then they asked I come in for an interview, but since I live in CA, which is too far from NY, they set up a phone interview. The interview seemed to go well, but I was not offered the internship. The woman who conducted the interview made me feel very comfortable and natural.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi in November 2016.

    Interview

    I was asked to come for an interview after submitting my CV online. The two interviewers switched between two languages, they were very sweet and positive, they answered all my questions and gave me a lot to think about. Their passionate about the job and it shows in the interview. Questions were hard and showed true interest in not only skills but also in character. They asked what am I doing in case of a fight am I fighting back or try to resolve peacefully a conflict. They asked about my studies, my background, why did I choose this company, my flaws and positive traits. It took an hour and was extremely stressful but also a great learning experience.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Saatchi & Saatchi in January 2010.

    Interview

    I emailed an HR contact my resume and we set up an in person interview. For internships on the non-creative side, there's only one interview with an HR rep. She asked about my experiences, my academic background, my knowledge of advertising, brands, etc. The interviewer was really personable and professional. It wasn't a structured/ineffective question and answer interview. We had a dynamic conversation and she truly got to know me as more than a potential hire. I knew it was going well because after a while she was trying to convince ME to choose Saatchi.

    The internship program seems outstanding. The projects and accounts provide great learning opportunities. The salary is also quite a bit higher than some other paid internships (not to mention all the out of touch agencies that STILL only offer unpaid internships that I didn't even both applying to)

    The building/offices are gorgeous. AMAZING views and neighborhood. Really tight security makes it feel very safe compared to other agencies when randoms can come on in and walk around. I've visited some ancient, Mad-Men era agencies that reek of establishment, old-fashioned, old boys club.
