    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4 months - interviewed at Dow Jones.

    Interview Details

    Probably the WORST company to interview with. They are a mess internally. Don't waste your time and energy. They don't respect your time whatsoever. They dragged the process for months and months. After the process, they didn't even have the courtesy of replying back to any of my correspondence. At one point, they said I had the job but then they told me I had to wait a few months. People working here are NOT happy. They finally offered the position 3-4 months after the start of the interview process. I declined. I took another offer with a company that actually respects your time.

    Interview Questions
    • None. Questions were easy. Went through the entire process and then they dragged it on for months and months about offering a job.   Answer Question
    Reasons for Declining

    Culture is a joke, wasted my time, decided I would be extremely unhappy there. Company is in shambles right now. NO funding, NO culture, it's a skeleton of it's past.

    I applied online. The process took a day - interviewed at Dow Jones in September 2009.

    Interview Details

    I guess i got screened out in this initial interview even though i had great similar experience and a great record. The knucklehead I spoke with was an HR drone and we were on the phone for about 5 minutes. No real pertinent questions and we were off the phone in a flash. It was really a waste of time, glad it was via the phone.
