I applied through college or university. The process took 7 weeks. I interviewed at New York Post (New York, NY) in March 2013.
I applied online at my school career services. I then received an interview on-campus. What a joke! I felt hesitant about interviewing with the company from the start because there is a negative connotation associated with the Post. The newspaper is based merely on gossip with a few key facts (if any). But I gave the company the benefit of the doubt and I've never regretted anything more! The guy who interviewed me was very self-absorbed and only talked about himself. I also interviewed with a girl in HR that was very impersonal and I felt a lot of negative energy from her. The guy who interviewed me offered me a 2nd interview on the spot even before discussing it with anyone else (very unprofessional). He just kind of blurted it out! I then was sent to the 2nd rounds in NYC called "HQ event". This lasted 2 days and they made you REALLY feel as if you had a job. There were only 10 of us and they said they would hire all of us if they liked us. That was quite a lie. I was probably the most qualified candidate there with 2 previous internships from very reputable companies and also a passion for sales. They asked me some very rude questions like "What do your parents do?" and also one guy asked me why I dropped a class while he was looking at my transcript...I've never experienced such bizarre questions. Most of the questions that the interviewers asked seemed very irrelevant to the position! When I was leaving the HQ event I was on the elevator with an executive that I previously interviewed with. He told me I was getting an offer the next day...once again that was a lie! The next day I received an email saying I was not chosen. This was probably the most UNPROFESSIONAL experience I've ever had with a company and I am truly disappointed I wasted my time even considering them. To sum up my experiences with the NY Post- they make you feel very special, but they actually know who they want before you attend the event. If you want to pursue a real career in sales I suggest not to even go there. They are slime buckets and love to manipulate college students into thinking they actually want you.
- "What do your parents do?" "Are any of your family members in sales?" "If we offered you this job tomorrow, would you accept it on the spot?" Answer Question
