    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 daysinterviewed at CBS Radio (Chicago, IL) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview process was formal but very relaxed. I met with the two sales assistants at the office as well as two other managers including the general sales manager. The people there really care to know if you can handle the responsibilities of the sales assistant position. They rely on their sales assistants to get things done.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at CBS Radio.

    Interview

    For interns the interviews are pretty casual. Dress business casual. Mine was a group interview and they asked what kind of music you listen to, your pre-sets, how you act around celebrities etc. They also record you as you work your way through a promotions situation like - How do you react when someone gives you their mixtape/cd etc.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at CBS Radio.

    Interview

    The process was very unorganized. I received an email a few months after applying, not only were they delayed in their hiring process but also they spelt my name wrong (which is not that hard to spell) and also had several typos in the email. They seemed super desperate to hire someone. The interview wasn't difficult, but the interviewer did 80% of the talking. He didn't seem interested in listening, but he did more to try to sell me on the organization. Based on what was said, the program seems like an internship where you spend most of your time doing jobs that no one else wants to do. After the interview I question how organized this company is and would say that if you are a type A personality type, this would not be the type of organization to work for. I haven't heard back yet from CBS, but if I do I will decline.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions weren't too difficult, they were mostly personal about what you're studying and why. What experience do you have in advertising? What type of music do you listen to? Tell me about a time where you had to confront a situation.   Answer Question

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at CBS Radio.

    Interview

    Took me about 3 months to get hired here, but I saw a girl get hired in a day. Had one interview with the general sales manager, then the director of sales, then the GSM again. It was not a hard interview process at all, all they look for is confidence. So that is a must have in this line of work anyways.
