Second was on-site with 2-director-level individuals, one each from IT Infrastructure and IT Applications. I do not recall any behavioral questions being asked. I did not receive any follow up, yea or nay, following the interview.

Web Applications Developer Interview (Positive Experience; Average Interview)
I applied in-person and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Journal Communications in January 2008.
Interview Details – This was a poistion to work on the company website. There was a phone interview and then an in-person interview with some simple Q&A gauging your interest in the field. The final part of the interview process was a take home project to make a small website to showcase one's skillset. After getting the job, I found out only 1-2 candidates actually complete the project whenever a new position is filled. Complete the project and you're in.
