    Editor Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Dallas Morning News.

    Interview Details

    I was highly impressed by the professionalism and the efficiency with which this interview process was handled. I have been through several of these at other large media companies and this one was the best. The people I met at this company know what they are doing and I believe that would make it a good place to work. The initial contact was over the phone after I applied. Next was a thoughtfully designed skills assessment done at home. The final step was in-person interviews with a number of people over the course of a day. I met people from all areas of the newsroom, including the editor and managing editor.

    Application Details

    The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Dallas Morning News in October 2009.

    Interview Details

    Interview process is not as bad as some, they make you write a paragraph or so in front of a panel (for my dept at least) explaining why you should be fit for the job. Afterwards, they tell you that you will receive a call when they need you, like a list. You never know if you well get the job or not. Luckily, i got a call 3 mths later

    Interview Questions

    Infrastructure Incident Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Interview Details

    Went to an open house where most people did not get past the initial passing out of their résumé I was selected to move to a second interview and asked to step into a back area where my experience was discussed and plans were made for setting up an interview with the hiring manager. The next week, I drove in for that interview and within minutes, knew this job was not for me. Very much a job where there was little natural problem solving, just canned responses based on the problem encountered. Much more of a clerks position than an IT professional.
