    Reporter Interview

    Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeksinterviewed at IB Times (New York, NY) in May 2015.

    Interview

    This was a rigorous interview process to say the least. After meeting with six different people all at different times over the course of two hours, the questions ranged from basic to in-depth. Most of the questions were straightforward however the editor-in-chief seemed keen on making his portion of the interview unbearable, uncomfortable and very intense. If you like feeling bullied and under valued, this is the place for you.

    Interview

    Attended an interview....worst ever interview in my life, the guy in bangalore didnt even bother to go through my cv....treated me like a fresher.... and came across as highly incompetent.... even pay discussions was dismissed as if i was he was doing me a favour.... terrible pay offered.

    Interview Questions

    • Nothing. The interviewer ( a top guy) was highly incompetent, didnt even have basic interpersonal skills, came across as someone who didn't have any knowledge or even have the basic respect to go through someone's CV to see their experience. Terrible .   Answer Question

    Reasons for Declining

    Terrible Company.. The interviewer ( a top guy) was highly incompetent, didnt even have basic interpersonal skills, came across as someone who didn't have any knowledge or even have the basic respect to go through someone's CV to see their experience. Terrible . Salary offered was not even a 1% hike when market pays 30%. The guy even admitted to the fact that they were plagued by salary problems and even asked me to 'come mentally prepared' for all these as if I had already accepted the offer. Definitely turning down. .
