Staff Writer Interview

Staff Writer
Bethany Beach, DE

Interviewed at Gannett

Interview Details – Interviewed twice, once in OC, once in Bethany for job in Bethany Beach. Had to go to Salisbury for a drug test (mouth swab) and get a driving record completed at the DMV. The editor who hired me seemed friendly and nice, only after I was hired did I find out she was unexperienced with questionable news judgement.

Administrative Assistant Interview

Administrative Assistant

I applied online and the process took 4+ weeks - interviewed at Gannett.

Interview Details – Phone interview with recruiter, then in person interview with future boss, then awkward second interview with some other members of the office. Overall not a bad experience, but I definitely walked out each time feeling like a country bumpkin (which I later discovered the hard way was just the overall culture of the company).

Interview Question – There really weren't any unusual questions....nothing out of the ordinary as far as an interview.   Answer Question

Digital Sales Specialist Interview

Digital Sales Specialist
Austin, TX

I applied online and the process took 5 weeks - interviewed at Gannett in April 2014.

Interview Details – Originally, the process seemed to going well. I applied for the position. The Director of Digital Sales reached out to me, we scheduled a phone interview. For the initial phone interview, she was "tied up" with a client and asked to reschedule it. I was accommodating and rescheduled it. She actually remembered and called me. It went well, and we scheduled a face to face interview. It went well. She introduced me to a Local Sales Manager, the Director of Sales and two Account Executives. I had another phone interview with someone located in New York. It seemed to go well. Then I waited, and waited. I reached to check the status of the position. I didn't hear back from anyone. I checked the website today, and learned that it was filled. My issue is not that I did not get the job, but when a person goes through as many hurdles as I did, it would be nice to at least be informed that a decision was made.

Interview Question – The questions were not difficult, they were average.   Answer Question
