    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Entercom.

    Interview Details

    Had to fill out an online application, but it's very generic. Every time they re-post the position, it says you applied instead of simply allowing you to reapply. Finally was noticed after an employee referral.

    Digital Content Coordinator Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Denver, CO
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 8+ monthsinterviewed at Entercom in August 2013.

    Interview Details

    Took over 8 months and three different rounds of interviews for me to get hired. Due to a massive turnover of employees, I kept having to interview with different people. Interviews were very straightforward and professional. I could get an instant and genuine feel for the company via the interviews I experienced. I was given a tour and got to meet several other employees, which gave me a more thorough sense of the environment and culture so I appreciated that.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through other source. The process took a weekinterviewed at Entercom in April 2011.

    Interview Details

    I had several interviews, first with a recruiter, second with the general sales manager, third with the local sales manager, and fourth with the director of sales. Each of them seemed disorganized and unprepared for the interview, it's a wonder they could ever sell their way out of a paper bag. The General manager's desk looked like a bomb had dropped on it - very unprofessional. The director of sales was pleasant, but nothing about the company or organization impressed me.

    Reasons for Declining

    The compensation plan seemed sketchy to me, and the company didn't seem to be very organized at all.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Entercom in December 2009.

    Interview Details

    A friend of mines had interned with 102 Jamz the summer before and recommended me to apply. I sent in an email via their online form stating her name and the person I was trying to reach. Within a couple of days I had an interview for the following week. I interviewed with the Director of Promotions and Marketing, Rugbee. His interview was very casual. It was more so directed towards my personality and what I wanted to learn from the internship. I left feeling good. Within the following week or so Rugbee called me back and offered me the internship position to start when I started the following semester. The interviewing process was smooth and easy!

    Interview Questions
    Negotiation Details
    I was able to negotiate my hours. I needed a total of 220 hours to receive 6 credits from my school. Rugbee was able to set my schedule to meet these requirements as well as being able to assist him in the busiest part of the day.

    Account Executive Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took a weekinterviewed at Entercom in April 2009.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was fairly simple. My resume was passed along to the hiring manager to which I followed up with an email and phone call. I then met with the hiring manager. The role was a sales position and I was interviewing with a sales guy....which meant he spent most of the time "selling me" on how good he was as a sales manager and how much money his reps made. Since this was my first sales job, I think the only real qualification he was looking for was a competitive drive and that "sales person" personality.

    After the initial meeting, I was asked to "do something to secure a second meeting." This meant I had to get creative to get a second interview. So, what I did was develop a presentation to show how my experience translates to sales. This got me the second meeting. Next I met with two more, higher up managers. All of the questions were pretty basic and relatively easy.

    The final step was me talking to a current sales rep. The rep talked about the company from a different perspective and made it sound like a great place to work.

    Interview Questions
    • The request to do something to secure the second interview was a new twist.   View Answer
    Negotiation Details
    There wasn't much negotiation. The job 100% commission and they start you on a draw for 60 days. In retrospect, this is the part I would have negotiated.

    The process was out of this world inconvenient. I interviewed with three different managers over the course of three months. THREE MONTHS!!! For a sales position, this is ridiculous. Not onl did I have to take time off from work, I had to take time off on four different occasions.
