I applied through a staffing agency. The process took a week – interviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL (US)).
Pretty standard. The interview was held with HR and the AD. Focused on experience, and the job description. The interview process was relatively short, but detailed in that a lot of information was shared on both interviewer and interviewee parts, prior to the discussion of an offer. Being able to really speak to the account background is key.

The HR person was very nice. I also had a phone interview with the director she was also nice however i never heard back. I'm not quite sure why I didn't get the job but I guess it wasn't meant to be.

I applied online. The process took 5 weeks – interviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL (US)) in March 2015.
I had a phone screening with an HR person who then asked me to come in for an in-person interview. I met with four different people, in 30 minute increments, that all worked in the Client finance side and their interview questions were pretty standard.

The hiring process was very kind and I had to talk to 2 persons of the management only - once they saw my work - we agreed pretty fast. I was actually asked to start ASAP.

I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL (US)).
2 Interviews, manager & senior manager. Pretty easy, asked about knowledge of systems, current team workload, and the needs of the department. I only worked with the HR group as a "home base," they didn't really push me in any direction one way or the other.
- When I asked about training, there wasn't a formal department training, and that has hard to hear coming stright out of College. Answer Question
I did negotiate for a higher salary, and was awarded something higher than initial offer.

To the point job description & expectations were accurately communicated. There wasn't too much stuffing around with the stages of the interview process as opposed to many other interviews I've been too.
- Was I a "runner"? Answer Question

I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months – interviewed at Leo Burnett (Chicago, IL (US)).
Met with HR first, and then with account teams on four different occasions. One-on-one interviews were 30min, and sometimes I met with more than 5 individuals in one day. You should come with good questions that aren't just about work-life balance. Do your homework once you find out what account you will be interviewing for. HR is very kind and helpful.
