    Interview

    It can take a long time for them to get back to you after the initial application. From there, the process moves rather quickly. You are called in, meet with 3-4 individuals (from AAEs to Senior AEs) for about 15 min each, one of which explains briefly the company and the position. You then may get invited to complete a lengthy writing test. They give you around 5 days to complete it and you will need all of that time. And it is not uncommon for them to call you the day that you turn that test in.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Weber Shandwick (Chicago, IL) in April 2016.

    Interview

    It starts off with an email to invite you to come in for an interview. Then you attend an interview with about 4-6 people on the team. If you do well during that, you will be invited to to take a very extensive writing test. It is the largest writing test, I have ever encountered for PR. It includes analytics, creating a social media campaign, and writing headlines and updates and summarizing news..

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Weber Shandwick (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    Applied online. Didn't hear back for about 6 months. Contacted via email by HR person who set up an in-person interview. On the day of the interview I met with the HR person and 4 other employees who each had their own sets of questions. Very conversational, not a lot of pressure. They really just want to pick your brain and if you know some key points about the company as well as the industry that'll be great. The next round is a writing test which is "open book" and you get about 4 days to do. Once you submit that you get your final answer. They're pretty quick about it.
