    I applied online. The process took 5 daysinterviewed at Demand Media.

    Interview Details

    At the time, had to fill out application and submit writing sample. I had to answer some questions and have my application approved. Now, it's more difficult. You need to have a degree and several years experience to write fairly shallow articles for little money.

    Account Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Demand Media in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied online for an open position. Got a callback from HR wanting to set up a quick phone screen, then got asked to fill out a formal application for employment. Did the initial phone screen and heard back right away that they wanted me to come in for a group interview at the Demand offices. Group interview seemed to go well, and I got positive feedback from other Demand employees, but I was told by HR that there were others still up for the job and that I'd hear back soon. The only way I found out I'd been rejected was when I was looking over my Jobvite list to make sure my applications were all current. Demand gave no explanation for my rejection, sent no reply, and no form rejection letter. Very strange.

    Interview Questions
    • Nothing. The interview questions were pretty standard.   Answer Question
