    Digital Brand Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Emmis Communications in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty straight forward, but communication via e-mail was short and information provided was very vague. When asked to finally come in was told to just show up at 3pm on Friday. No information was given to where to go, who to ask for, where to park (it's downtown Indy) so I found that a little frustrating. Took a half day off and went on a Friday to meet at 3. The person I interviewed with showed up about 15 minutes late...so wasn't very impressed so far. Interview was pretty standard as I've been doing exactly what they required for the past 3 years and had more than enough experience. Thought it went well and was told be in touch next week to maybe show a few examples of some of my work. Followed up with e-mail after interview, and after not hearing anything for a week followed up again. Again...nobody responded with anything. Seems to be the status quo for companies to not follow up and allow job searches to take our valuable time off from work and pay parking, etc to not even get a response that you didn't get a job.

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 5 weeksinterviewed at Emmis Communications in November 2013.

    Interview Details

    We had one phone interview with the promise of a 2nd, the second never happened. In fact no phone call or email at all. Even after the manager claimed to be impressed. They never hired anyone for the position. I think they were on a fishing expedition. I feel I gave them too much information and I could hear them using my advice.

    Radio Personality Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ monthsinterviewed at Emmis Communications.

    Interview Details

    I was extremely fortunate, as an Emmis employee heard me on the air in another state while they were travelling through...They called me and urged me to apply to their NYC station. The provided me the appropriate PD's name to apply to. This individual told me to send my best audio demo and resume, as well as a professional photo. The individual highly recommended me to the PD at the particular radio station. I received a phone call from the Program Director, who did a brief interview over the phone, and tried to ascertain my level of interest in possibly relocating or how difficult a commute I might have if I were not to relocate. He set an in person interview a month later. The day I interviewed, I was in his office for 10-15 minutes before I was offered a job on the spot. There was nothing difficult about the interview.

    Negotiation Details
    Negotations were not possible, because as a union member (AFTRA), salary rates were already set by the union, and they were excellent anyway, so there was no need for me to want to negotiate.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Emmis Communications in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    Started with a standard phone interview. Not too much information given about the role except that it needed to be fulfilled quickly for their growing media team. I was asked to come in for a an in-person interview. The interview was short. No upper management was available to see me. So I was stuck to be judged by 2 current planners. They had no clue of what they were doing and barely had any real questions for me pertaining to the job.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Emmis Communications in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    I applied on a Thursday and was called a few days later on a Tuesday to interview on Friday of the same week. When I arrived I was asked to fill out an application, redundant as I had already filled one in completely online, but the interview went well. I was asked about previous employers and told I had a lot of experience and asked if I would also be interested in a sales position later down the road. I wasn't sure if I was being interviewed for the sales assistant or sales executive position. After that I was asked what salary I'd like to make, and I asked what they were offering someone with skills like mine. Overall the interview went well but they filled it internally.

    I applied through other source. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Emmis Communications in February 2012.

    Interview Details

    Applied via snail mail because they didn't have an online career website. Initially got an email from direct supervisor asking to schedule an on-site interview. When I went on-site for my interview I checked in with the receptionist to inform the manager I was there. Had to wait 30-45 minutes to before I finally was able to interview.
