    I applied through an employee referral. I interviewed at WPP Group (New York, NY).

    Interview

    Met head of department and her UK boss. General discussions about my background, and they did most of the talking about WPP and its global footprint. Met other people in similar roles for a culture check. It was a very culture-driven interview. They need to know you can "get on" with others.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at WPP Group (Wilton, CT).

    Interview

    One hour interview. I was interviewed by my would-be direct superior. She was warm and welcoming, gave off a vibe that the 30 minute oral interview process was just a formality. She took an average interest in my professional experiences.

    The powerpoint test was next. A 30 min 10 slide full rework. Stock photo research and placement. Clean up master slides. Table creation. Alignment and continuity ARE HUGE to KPP.

    I thought I bombed. She assured me that I didn't. Small talk and questions for 10 more min.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. I interviewed at WPP Group (New York, NY) in October 2013.

    Interview

    Full day interview at JWT in NY. Met with four executives from various agencies around the country.

    The interview experience was great. The opportunity to sit down with these brilliant ad professionals and just talk shop was amazing. Questions ranged from industry thoughts and predictions, to thoughts on specific brands, to future goals and aspirations. The experience was not like MBA interviews client side. Not a single interviewer asked about my experience before the MBA program.

    Human Resources for W2O Group Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at WPP Group (New York, NY) in August 2012.

    Interview

    The recruiter was friendly and the initial phone call went well. Then went onsite to meet with a few members of the management team and do a phone call (which was supposed to be video and did not happen) with members of the HR team in California and Texas. All still went well, and I was very excited. Then went back for a second round interview to meet with more senior managers. Then went back for a third onsite interview. Then had to go back again in person to meet with the senior operations person (I think COO) in the NY office. Went in and had to wait, and then the interview only took 20 minutes. If you are asking someone to come in FOUR times in person plus a phone interview, that is a lot of their time. I would have liked the last interview to be more worth it. Than I never heard back-- I would follow up and they were still making decisions. Then I mentioned I had a final round interview elsewhere, and they said they were still very interested in me. I would have been find if they told me it was a pass, but I guess they really had not made a decision. When I received the other offer, W2O still had not made any decisions, so I accepted the other offer. At the time I was disappointed, but in hindsight I love my new role AND I don't think I would want to work for a company with such inability to get things done.

    Interview Questions
