I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Allied Global Marketing (Minneapolis, MN) in July 2011.
Initially, I was very excited to intern for Allied Integrated Marketing. They were big in promotions for well-known entertainment companies, and I thought it would help me expand my skills. I got in contact with one of the PR people when a former classmate told me they were hiring, so I took the opportunity and set up an interview with them.
In summary, it was very laid back--so laid back, I wondered if there was any structure at all. The initial one on one interview consisted of the PR associate describing the internship position; she only asked me a few questions, such as if I was uncomfortable making phone calls or taking pictures during events. I wondered if she even thought I was qualified; it seemed too easy and unprofessional. My doubts were confirmed when I came in for the group interview, where a panel of five publicists yawned and stared at me for five minutes, asked me two or three questions, and then got up and left to take their 2:30 coffee break (I'm not exaggerating). I was left sitting there with the PR associate apologizing and trying to convince me that people here are serious and hardworking, even after I'd driven half an hour for a five-minute interview and a rude dismissal.
Even so, I thought I could give it a shot; I didn't want to quit before I'd started. But after the even more unprofessional intern orientation, I had had enough. I quit about two weeks later.
Reasons for Declining
It was very unprofessional, and the other interns were a joke. Most of them, along with the publicists, laughed and talked about drinking and after parties. Totally not my style. I was disappointed.
