Media Sales Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 days – interviewed at Idearc Media (San Jose, CA) in September 2009.
Asked about previous experience via phone interview. After I passed that, had a 1:1 interview with General Manager. Spoke with her for about 20 minutes and she asked me the usual questions like "Wat were your greatest challendes", "Where do you see yourself in 5 years?", etc. She was going to have me do a role play with a colleague then decided that it would not change her mind. She offered me the position.

I applied online. The process took 3 weeks – interviewed at Idearc Media (New York, NY) in May 2009.
Contacted and screened. Did 45 min phone interview next day. My follow-up calls and emails were ignored completely. THREE WEEKS later - I got a return call from the same recruiter/interviewer I spoke to originally asking who I was and when did we ever speak! Preposterous company!

The process took 2 days – interviewed at Idearc Media (Chicago, IL) in March 2009.
Phone interview then one 1 on 1 interview with the hiring manager. Basically confirmed I could sell by role playing and varifying my past sales experience.
