Advantage Business Media Interview Questions & Reviews
Getting an Interview
Editor Interview (Negative Experience; Easy Interview)
I applied online - interviewed at Advantage Business Media in September 2013.
Interview Details – They called and asked me to interview on the following day, but it seemed like they already decided not to hire me before I got there. The editorial director didn't shake my hand or introduce himself. Seemed like he wasn't listening to my answers. Really weird experience overall.
Interview Question – He pulled out a blank sheet of paper and asked, "How do you go about filling this?" Answer Question
National Sales Manager Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied online and the process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Advantage Business Media in November 2011.
Interview Details – I was interviewed by the Group publisher and by a few of the editors and sales reps. I had two separate interviews.
The First- I came in and spoke briefly with the Publisher. I then interviewed with the two of the editors, then the executive editor and a sales rep. I concluded by speaking with the Publisher.
Second (Final) Interview- I came in and spoke with the a couple more sales reps and another editor and concluded again with the publisher. The publisher then told me he was interested in hiring me.

Negotiation Details – I told him what I would have liked as far as salary. He met it +$500. Commission was set at 3% which gets reviewed after 6 months. Advice: Ask for what you would like, it is better to aim too high than too low.
