Call with the recruiter, then one on one meetings with the team including the direct supervisor. All calls were virtual in 2022 via Zoom. Recruiters are under water and took a while to schedule calls.

J'ai postulé via la recommandation d'un employé Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien chez APCO Worldwide (Shanghai, Shanghai)

Entretien

This is an “interesting” experience. I initially approached another office because I didn’t have plan to work in mainland China anymore, after having worked in the market for a long time. I also approached APCO for freelance opportunities, NOT employment. (This is why there's not a specific job title and I put my area of work) But my CV was shared with their China office MD who is based in Shanghai (and joined APCO in 2019 from a China market entry consultancy that helps UK businesses to enter China). And they handled it like a job interview so my comment here can also apply to the job interview experience at APCO China. Their China HR contacted me one day, even though my engagement so far had been with another office, and helped arrange a Zoom call between me and their China MD. My experience with their HR was good. She was very helpful and friendly. During the Zoom call, we talked about what I have done, how I have come this far in my career and what my aspirations and views about the industry was. The MD did ask me if I would work in mainland China again. I told him I am still open to covering the market but I prefer to base elsewhere. I also would like to see if I could cover the APAC again, which I did before 2011. The connection was bad on the MD’s side (I was right next to the router so my connection was good). The screen kept freezing and the line dropped off a few times. On the last occasion when the MD disconnected, I thought that he would come back on again, like the previous few times. So I waited and waited… I thought he must have some problem with coming back online so I waited. After more than 15 minutes of waiting, I decided to email the HR to let her know I was still online and could continue with the call on Teams if Zoom didn’t work well enough. 10 minutes later, the HR replied with this message, “The information you shared is sufficient for now. We didn’t see a fit for any immediate job opening with APCO Greater China. We will let you know if anything appropriate emerges.” It sounded very blunt and abrupt to me but I didn’t blame the HR because English is not her native language. However, I was offended by the MD who took rudeness to a whole new level! I just wasted 25+ minutes waiting for him, all along wondering what happened. I even had to reschedule another client just in case the MD came back online and our call overran into my next scheduled call. The MD could have asked the HR to send me a message much earlier, instead of making me wait for almost half an hour! Also, I didn’t understand why all of a sudden, I became a candidate looking for a full-time job, when I have made it very clear I was looking for freelance opportunities! I am still working on a few projects which won’t be done in the next 6 months. So I could not be looking for a full-time NOW. Is this how APCO, or the China MD specifically, would treat their employees? After this incident, I will have second thoughts about working with/for APCO, especially with their China MD. I cannot afford to have people disrespecting my time like this. So I consider myself lucky that I found out before we started on anything serous.

Questions d'entretien
  • - Tell me about yourself (the MD said this was to help him understand my personality). - Where are you based now and would you come back to Shanghai again?

J'ai postulé via la recommandation d'un employé Le processus a pris 2 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien chez APCO Worldwide en Oct 2021

Entretien

From my first interview with HR, I found everyone I met with to be personable, informative, passionate, and engaging. My interviewers even stayed on late so that they could answer all of my questions. I got updates from HR throughout the process, completed their writing assessment, and wrapped the full interview process in around two weeks. They also shared a super helpful microsite to help me prepare for my interviews.

Questions d'entretien
  • If a co-worker had a "this is how we do it" attitude about an item, how would you approach the situation?

J'ai postulé via un recruteur. Le processus a pris 4 semaines. J'ai passé un entretien chez APCO Worldwide en Aug 2021

Entretien

The application process was smooth and the HR rep communicated throughout it. It took one month and consisted of four rounds of virtual interviews (and a fifth conversation midway that was more informative in nature). The recruiter had identified me on LinkedIn and offered to have a conversation about a role. During the process I was asked to complete a skills assessment to test my writing and creative abilities. Everyone was friendly and engaging during our conversations.

Questions d'entretien
  • A number of "Can you provide an example of..." questions and one that focused on my general knowledge of any policy issue in the news that seemed to gauge whether I stayed abreast of current affairs.

J'ai postulé en ligne. Le processus a pris 2 mois. J'ai passé un entretien chez APCO Worldwide

Entretien

The process took 2+ months, and all of my interviews were done remotely. It started with a HR call about 2 weeks after applying online, followed by a call with a senior director. Then I was sent a skills assessment (creating a creative campaign, analyzing data, and a "cold email" writing exercise). The process concluded with a video panel interview, followed by a reference check. Everyone was friendly and passionate about their work.

Questions d'entretien
  • Who would your dream clients be? Give an example of a PR initiative you think was successful. Tell me about a time you made a mistake.

Like any other company, the first round is with the HR and then with the hiring manager/s. This is probably one of the worst interviews I had as HR forgot to inform me of the interview, and the hiring managers seemed quite high-handed during the interview. I don't think intelligence, salary, or experience warrants making someone feel bad about themselves. They didn't get back to me after the second round but I concluded I wouldn't enjoy their working culture anyway.
