    Interview

    Two one hour interviews: one with direct supervisor and another with VP level. after two or three weeks, got a call from HR with an offer for the position. Interview questions didn't ask about previous experience. Rather, they were positioned more for that of an entry-level job.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at OMD in January 2015.

    Interview

    I applied to OMD late November and contacted HR one week later. I was scheduled to interview with OMD in December, but managed to interview with OMD in January.

    I arrived 5 minutes early and waited 15 minutes. The interview process was broken down into two parts.

    Round one lasted 10-15 minutes with one team member, and the second round lasted 10 minutes with two team members.

    First round was okay. The interviewer seemed antsy and ready to leave. However, the company culture is entrepreneurial spirited but laid back.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions asked were standard interview questions such as-

      1. Tell me about yourself?
      2. What are your interests?
      3. Walk me through your resume
      4. Why are you interested in this position?
      5. Are you proficient in excel?

    Interview

    I was contacted by an OMD recruiter. We had a phone interview and I went in the next morning to interview with the director and associate director. They were great about answering my (many) questions. They were also very respectful of the fact that I needed to keep the interview to an hour so that I could get to work on time. The whole process was very professional, courteous and efficient.
