I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Clear Channel (Burbank, CA).
Phone interview, a days worth of multiple interviews for 2-3 different times. Be yourself and get ready to meet majority of the sales managers. The sales managers are nice to meet. Some are intimidating but they're nice when you first meet them.

I applied through other source. The process took a week. I interviewed at Clear Channel.
It was a fairly quick hiring process. I had applied via email directly to one of the Promotions Coordinator at the start of the week. I then received a call as an informal interview for general inquiries about basic requirements for the interview. The next day the Promotions Coordinator called to schedule a formal interview in the following 2 days. I was offered the internship that Friday and accepted it.

I applied online. I interviewed at Clear Channel.
Process took around four weeks. I received an email for an interview a month after applying online. After interviewing for the first round with one of the professional recruiting managers, I received an email a couple of days after for a second interview with another. After interviewing with her the following week, she told me that she was going to follow up with an email for an interview in the office, where I would have to do a mock sales situation. This recruiter never had the common courtesy to email or call me back, with me thinking that I would be coming in for an interview that same week.
- Typical interview questions, name clear channel stations, etc. Answer Question

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Clear Channel (New York, NY) in October 2014.
I was contacted by a recruiter who had looked at my resume, and he wanted to interview me over the phone so I scheduled that and at the end he told me my interview went great and he would pass me along to the staff who wanted the new employee in NY to see if they wanted to move forward with an interview. A few days later I interviewed with the 4 staff members hiring for the position, I spent about 3 hours total with them and the interview went great. I emailed them all thank yous and two emailed back saying they would be in touch soon and they enjoyed meeting me etc., the recruiter also called me the next day saying that he heard some great things. About 10 days went by and I did not hear anything back from them, and then got an email saying that everything went well with my interview and the next step in the hiring process was that they needed to do my background check, they sent me forms to fill out, and I did and turned them in later that evening. They confirmed receiving them. About 2 weeks had gone by and I had not heard anything, so I emailed and called the recruiter to see if there was any info he could share with me. He never responded. i waited another week and then called the recruiter and left him a voicemail message. Nothing again. It has now been 5 weeks, almost 6 since I have heard from them after submitting my background check. Note, there is nothing bad on my background that would cause any issues. I think it is really unprofessional to drag someone around, if you were not hiring them or you have moved on with someone else or another position in said office. It seemed like the recruiter had good communication prior, during and after my interviews with them and the staff, but then went totally MIA. I have also noticed this job has not popped back up on their job listings, so I wonder if they have chosen to not hire for the position or to eliminate it. Which is fine, and these things happen, but I would have just loved to have actually heard from them after they told me my next step for hiring was the background.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Clear Channel.
Started with a phone interview, Recruiter asked a few questions about me and it I was familiar with the company. Simply just asked me about what I want to do long term. She never explained what the position or any details. Recruiter was difficult to talk to, she made facilitating a conversation difficult.
- She did not ask me any quality questions. Answer Question
