    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university – interviewed at CBS Interactive (San Francisco, CA) in March 2013.

    Interview

    I had an in-person interview in the San Francisco Office. 2 one-on-one interviews on the same day by 2 directors in the department. They asked if I know some of the websites of CBSi, such as CHOW. They were very interested in what products of CBSi that I know, not very much of my experiences. It was very casual and laidback; I had expected something more challenging, but it may vary from team to team, as CBS interactive handles many websites.

    Application

    The process took 1 dayinterviewed at CBS Interactive (San Francisco, CA) in November 2011.

    Interview

    I submitted my resume on my college career website. They reviewed it and selected to give me a phone interview. After the phone interview, I was one of the 8 picked to fly up to San Francisco for panel interviews. The interview process took the entire day. First we began with breakfast and introductions, then I was given 2 1:1 interviews. We took a break for lunch then had a tour of the entire office building. After the tour, we had 2 more 1:1 interviews. I didn't get a response for 3 weeks, so I emailed the HR manager, who responded that they had moved on.

    This was a great experience overall. I felt very comfortable and at ease during all 3 interviews. The first one was over the phone and then did two face to face in 1 day. They were mostly about how I handle clients, management, and priorities. Good stuff. I felt confident after each interview.

    I didn't negotiate. BIG MISTAKE. Please negotiate. They will always low ball, so aim higher. The AC role is the lowest, but you can still get more out of them.
