    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Time in December 2014.

    Interview Details

    Interview was flawless, account mgr did not have a great deal of info, but researched, was only 24 hr notice, but I'm flexible. I would of preferred face to face. They chose another candidate, no feed back is disappointing.

    Coordinator Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 6 weeksinterviewed at Time in November 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was emailed maybe a week or two after applying online. I was emailed and asked to come in for a mid-day interview. I had a casual conversation with the HR rep. I felt like the interview was more about getting to know my personality than anything else. The following day I was asked to come in and interview with individuals from the department I would be working in. During another mid-day interview I met with the person that would be my supervisor and the person whose job I would be doing. Both of those interviews were more about getting to know my personality, my goals and what my previous experience had been. There was a good portion of the time where I didn't speak AT ALL, but the conversations were fine. The following day I was asked to come in the following week to meet with senior members of the department including a SVP. I had ANOTHER mid-day conversation with the SVP and another senior member of the department and they both went really well. I was asked minimal questions about my experience and I just had casual free flowing conversations with these two people. Then it was a waiting game.

    If you've read my post it indicates that I had THREE..mid-day interviews in Manhattan. Luckily, I was working nearby the TIME offices and I was able to travel quickly from my current job to their office, but otherwise having to leave my office 3 times in 2 weeks during the middle of the day for at least 90 minutes at a time is pretty suspicious.

    I emailed each person I met with within 24 hours of the interview thanking them for taking their time and explaining my excitement about the position. A week after my final interview I emailed HR to ask about the status of the position. She told me they were still interviewing candidates. And about 2-3 weeks after the email, I got an email saying they had chosen someone else. I followed up asking for any feedback. I did not get a response.

    Had I read the previous posts about TIME's interviewing procedures, I wouldn't have been so anxious about interviewing nor would I have thought the succession of interviews actually meant that I was a viable candidate.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and the whole process took about two to three weeks. I was called in for a ~20 min interview with a recruiter. Spent most of the time talking about my background and about the position requirements, why I want to work at Time, what I knew about Time, etc. Received a rejection email around a week later.

    I applied online – interviewed at Time in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    I went to interview and the hiring manager took forever to come get me so we missed about 20 mins of my supposed 30 min interview. The interview was rushed and forced. I interviewed with Manager of department and it felt forced as well. he asked me all sorts of questions about my experience and it felt like he just didn't think i was the right fit for the job even though it was a contract position

    Marketing Interview

    Application Details

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

    Interview Details

    Had a standard first call with recruiting manager - general fit questions. The main point seemed to be understanding why I wanted the role. This was followed by a few back-to-back interviews in the office. Scheduling was easy and not intrusive on my requirements for my current job. The interviewees were not intense but the interview was not easy: some difficult behavioral questions and a case or two based on a current business challenge facing the company.

    Interview Questions
    • The case studies did not require an in-depth understanding of the business model. However, if one had background in the industry it is a great advantage as I lost a lot of time learning the model in the case interview.   Answer Question

    Product Director Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeksinterviewed at Time.

    Interview Details

    Probably one of the most frustrating and unprofessional interview processes have ever been involved with, mostly due to the duration and lack of communication on Time, inc's behalf. Basically, I saw the job posted on their company site 7 months ago and I applied. After 3 months, I received no response, but I saw it posted still and I recalled a HR contact that I had who had recruited me for a job that did not work out, so I emailed him/her and asked if he/she was recruiting for it and/or could make an intro on my behalf. 2 months after that I got an email back from my contact who ended up being the recruiting HR person after all, and they asked me to interview. I met with 4 managers in 3 separate meetings/interviews over a 3 week span that seemed to go well, and then a week later I was asked in for a 4th time in what was described to me as a "meet and greet and not an interview" with the team I'd be managing. After that meeting went well, I thought I was in, but I did not hear anything regarding timing. After sending several emails and making calls to the HR contact and the hiring manager over the next week, I did hear back and was told an "internal referral" was intro'd to the interview process late in the game, and they wanted to interview that person over the next week or 2, but I was still the "leading candidate" and that they'd get back to me. Needless to say I did not follow up during that time and they did not get back to me, so another job I was interviewing for at a diff't co came through with an offer. And when I reached out to Time to confirm I was not in consideration before I accepted the other offer, I did not hear back that day as requested and I still have not heard back yet - which was 4 days ago (at the time of this review). So I accepted the other offer. And that's Time, Inc's loss.
