    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Time Warner in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied through the TW website - process took about a month

    As far as the intern hiring process goes, it's a two step process. If you are selected, initial contact is made by an HR Rep through email to set up interview.

    First Interview: Is a 30 min phone interview. Behavioral for the most part. Walk me through your resume, leadership activities, any prior work experiences.

    Why you want to work in media? Why Time Warner? They're just trying to get a gauge of you as a person and whether you're the right fit for the company.

    Second Interview: Also a 30 min phone interview with the department hiring manager. Behavioral for the most part, but can get technical depending on experience and department you're applying for.

    So there you have it....two rounds of behavioral phone interviews 30mins a piece.

    Interview Questions
    • Just standard behavioral questions...nothing too difficult per se.

      All I will say is, know yourself and your resume. If you try to lie or fabricate something they'll see right through it. Just be yourself and if you can make your personality stand out, you should be good. Media companies look to hire fun interesting people who they can work with for 8-10 hours a day.

    Negotiation Details
    They offered me more than I thought I would get...so no need to negotiate.

    But its still a set salary...so take it or leave it.

    Reception of the people was good. However, they were lacking the clear directions for what to do. Phone Interview was not aligned with the time confirmed and it was not appropriate from the privacy and personal questions. Overall one to one interview went okay again time alignment was problem.

    Application Details

    The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Time Warner in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    It was very easy to work with the recruiting coordinator to set up an initial interview after that was offered. He was very friendly but asked very specific questions about my ability to do the job. He also referenced some work by a professor that had written me a recommendation. A week or two later I heard back and was asked to set up a phone interview with the two people who would supervise me detailing the more specific functions of the job and how I would react to them. They also asked the namers of three additional references they could call. About a week later I received an offer.

    Interview Questions
    • At times we produce special feature issues which provide a detailed look at a topic that we believe would be of interest to our customers. For instance, a magazine devoted to Harry Potter.
