    Traffic Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News (Dallas, TX) in April 2015.

    Interview

    3 interviews - I got called back quickly for each interview. The interviewers were all great, nice people. Made you feel comfortable. After the 3rd interview I was told I should hear something next week but it took more than two weeks to hear that they went with another candidate. That was very frustrating and I was truly disappointed because I wanted to work with those people.

    Editor Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News.

    Interview

    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.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News (Dallas, TX) in December 2009.

    Interview

    They asked for so much information over the course of two months that it seemed they were either on a fishing expedition or there was really no funding for the position.

    Average Interview

    Application

    The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Dallas Morning News (Dallas, TX) in October 2009.

    Interview

    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

    • What do you know about advertising and what interests you in advertising   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    When negotiating, take what you can get, in this company they claim they have nomoney when they do, but they will choose the cheapest candidate to save costs, take what they give you

    Interview

    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.
