    Planner Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    No Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at TBWA\Chiat\Day (Los Angeles, CA) in August 2015.

    Interview

    Very quick phone interview for screening. Only lasted 15 minutes total. I think a longer skype interview with the team would have been next, but I just spoke with the director of HR.

    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TBWA\Chiat\Day (Los Angeles, CA) in February 2009.

    Interview

    I submitted a cover letter and resume to a recruiter in HR. I was introduced to her through a mutual contact. I was contacted shortly for an interview with her. The TBWA/ChiatDay/MAL campus is amazing- from the architecture to the decor. The interviewer was very pleasant and made me feel very comfortable. We went over my experience and my experience. Overall, it was a very casual interview and the interviewer seemed interested in my passion for advertising more so than just my work experience. I was called about a week later for a follow up interview but I had accepted another offer by then.

    Internship Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Los Angeles, CA
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at TBWA\Chiat\Day (Los Angeles, CA) in December 2010.

    Interview

    I first met with two HR representatives you interviewed me, but also prepped me for the upcoming interview with the department I would potentially work for. I was asked my reasons for my interest in the advertising industry and also some top advertisements...ever. Not too stressful, and actually more of a conversation than an interview. The second interview was very similar, essentially just asking me "why?" If you are passionate about the industry, the interview shouldn't be very difficult.
