    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at DDB Chicago.

    Interview

    I was referred by an employee at DDB and immediately received an email from HR to set up a phone interview that day or the next. I responded that I was available at their convenience and never heard back. Continued to send follow up emails and was ignored for a month before I gave up. Very unprofessional and a complete waste of time.
