    The interview process was pretty fast and furious.

Following that was a 90 minute interview: 15 minutes with 4 team members and 30 minutes with a rep from HR.

    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 through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Weber Shandwick in January 2015.

    Interview

    I filled out my application and submitted my resume and cover letter through the company website. It helped that I also sent my resume to an employee I knew internally so she could flag it to HR. When I heard back, I was brought in for an interview with my potential manager, and also conducted interviews with several other teammates on the same day. I was very persistent in my email follow up after the interviews, which paid off.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Weber Shandwick (New York, NY) in December 2013.

    Interview

    I've heard different things from different people. Not sure what else to say. It's case by case. Ad hoc. Do your networking and you'll be fine. Typically will go like this: apply, HR, management, writing test, offer.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Weber Shandwick (New York, NY) in August 2015.

    Interview

    I reach out to a recruiter via Linkedin about my interest in the AAE position. I was emailed by HR few weeks after I made initial contact. I then had a phone interview with HR. A week later I came in for a in person interview. I met with 3 people from each team on different levels. It was very fast. 30 mins for each person. I tried to give the as much information about me as I could and I tried to ask them a lot of questions. At the end if the interview I met with HR who told me the next steps would be a writing test. I was never sent the writing test so I knew I did not get the position. Overall it was a little unorganized, but efficient.

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Weber Shandwick (Chicago, IL) in November 2013.

    Interview

    My experience was not 100 percent typical as they were looking to very quickly fill a position, but I came in once and met with some senior team members I would potentially be working with. They asked me typical questions about my experience and resume and then additional personality questions. After that I came in again and met with the most senior leadership on the team.

    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Weber Shandwick.

    Interview

    I was contacted by a recruiter in the NYC office for a AAE position. She did a phone screen, and then set up 3 back to back calls with several members of the team I would be working on. I felt that the interviews went very well, especially with the AD. Before the interview ended, the AD recommended that I brush up on knowledge of the client, to prepare for follow up interviews. I have yet to hear yes or no, and it's been about 6 weeks since the interview.
