    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at RPA.

    Interview

    The interview was extremely laid back. It was more of a conversation - they were genuinely interested in me as a person. They asked what I expected the position to be and about my past experiences. They also wanted too know what I liked and didnt like about past jobs.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at RPA in September 2014.

    Interview

    I applied to one of their open Account Supervisor positions and was contacted quickly. The recruiter Andrea was really nice and gave me a good overview of the company and the positions available. She then said she was going to pass my resume on to the hiring managers and she'd let me know within five days whether they wanted to move forward or pass. It's been over three weeks and I never heard one way or the other. Each week for three weeks Andrea would let me know she was still waiting on an answer and would get back to me the next day. Never happened. I'm assuming they passed since I haven't heard anything in a while

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at RPA.

    Interview

    The interview process is fairly straight forward. An HR rep reached out to me via LinkedIn and e set up time for a phone interview, where I learned more about the role. Afterward, I was brought in to meet with my reporting managers for a panel interview. Next round was an interview with peers, and meeting with the director. I received a job offer a few days later.

    Negotiation was minimal. RPA is competitive with wages, but on the lower end of the spectrum.

    Interview

    There were four different interviews- one with Recruiter, one with manager, one with team supervisor, and one with vice president. I thought it was ridiculous and its an awful company.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at RPA (Santa Monica, CA (US)).

    Interview

    Started with a standard application along with a social media project where you listed why you want a job in advertising (be creative). About month later I received an email that I made it to the second round (phone interview). The interview was a pretty standard interview. No extremely tough questions. Mostly getting to know you and job experience. A few weeks later, I was notified I made it to the third round (santa monica office) for a panel type interview. Very fun experience overall. People at RPA are extremely positive and outgoing people

    Interview

    Pretty easy interview process. Had to submit a creative part as a preliminary before the interview. But I actually thought it was fun and innovative. Interview itself was standard. Casual. Asked the typical interview questions. Nothing out of the ordinary. The HR ladies were really nice

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at RPA.

    Interview

    I applied on RPA's website with a cover letter, and then forgot about it until I received an email from HR about a month later. I was asked to answer three questions via either Pinterest, Twitter, or video: 1) Why RPA?, 2) Why advertising?, and 3) Why your department of choice? A couple of weeks later I was notified I'd made it to the third round, where I was asked to submit at least one recommendation letter via email or mail.

    Five days after that deadline, I was asked to interview with the creative manager via Skype since I'm from out of state. She was pretty friendly and looked at my portfolio, asking me which of my campaigns were my favorite, why RPA, etc., and then I was given time to ask questions. Nothing to be worried about. She then said everything looked fine and that I would be Skyping with the Group Creative Director next. I Skyped with him a couple days later, and 95% of our half-hour conversation was just getting to know each other. Very relaxed and enjoyable. I then received word from HR a few days later that I'd officially been given an offer.

    Over all, the interviewing process took 2-3 months, which I think is a long time for an internship. However, I had time since I was traveling in the summer, so waiting wasn't too big of a deal for me. Maybe I just applied for the position too early. Anyway, very nice people, like other reviews have said.

    Negotiation

    Non-negotiable.

    The process took a dayinterviewed at RPA (Santa Monica, CA (US)) in February 2012.

    Interview

    Pretty basic phone interview went over my resume and the scope of the job. No tricky questions or anything like that. The interviewer was nice and very helpful.

    Interview Questions

    Reasons for Declining

    Recruiter was unable to answer some basic questions about where the job feeds into if you were asked to stay on full-time after school. The mention rate of pay was also extremely low in my opinion for an MBA internship 8-10/hr.
