    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Argus Media in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Subbing test that involves cutting copy, erasing duplications, correcting formatting errors and standard spelling mistakes. Keep an eye on units (metres, etc).
    Writing test - write a 275 word story based on newswire feeds about an Opec meeting. Avoid the red herrings and focus on Opec production.
    Maths test - mental arithmetic. 12 questions in 12 minutes. Extremely easy. If you cannot get 100% in this, you don't deserve the job.

    Interview Questions

    Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ weeksinterviewed at Argus Media in September 2010.

    Interview Details

    Argus approached me on the recommendation of a former boss. Their initial offer bordered on insulting but the more I put them off, the more generous terms they offered. I underwent four interviews, three with managers who would soon leave the company. They flew me out to London during a period where the person I would replace was also present. At the time of my interview, I was informed that the individua I would replace was threatening to file a lawsuit against the Company. This should have set off an alarm but I bought Argus' version of the dispute.

    Interview Questions
    • Can you manage a newsroom full of opinionated temperamental people with big egos?   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    The more I backed away, the more they offered. They later complained that I was overcompensated and tried to atone for this by curtailing my performance bonus. This is a privately owned company with a very temperamental micromanaging CEO who has little concern for the welfare or well-being of his employees. Without a doubt, the most miserable and demanding experience of my professional career.
