I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Advantage Business Media (Madison, WI).
Submitted application online. Got a call in a couple days. Scheduled interview for two days later. Got a call back the next week and accepted the job. The interview was casual: interviewers were in jeans and sweatshirts, very informal. Questions were predictable, standard interview questions. Very little discussion about the day-to-day ins and outs of the position.

I applied online – interviewed at Advantage Business Media (Madison, WI) in September 2013.
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.
- He pulled out a blank sheet of paper and asked, "How do you go about filling this?" Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 2 weeks – interviewed at Advantage Business Media (Madison, WI) in November 2011.
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.
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.
