I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at National Geographic.

Interview Details – One phone interview was held. It was enjoyable and very relaxed. I guess I might have been a little too relaxed. I was declined about a week later.

Director Interview

Evanston, IL

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 4 months - interviewed at National Geographic in March 2009.

Interview Details – I had a total of 6 or 7 interviews over a period of 4 months. I was led to believe I was the leading candidate. I met with many different people and was finally informed that they had rehired a former employee to take the position, which they had downgraded as far as title was concerned.

Interview Question – How would you handle reporting to a supervisor at a different location?   Answer Question
