    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Katz Media.

    Interview Details

    After applying online, I had a basic interview over the phone with a recruiter. Right after the interview ended, I was given a time that I would have to go to the main headquarters and meet with an Account Executive, along with the head of the Sales Assistants. Pretty basic interview questions, how would you deal with bad clients, etc...Followed up, but didn't hear back for a couple of weeks until I was told by the recruiter that I didn't get the position.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Katz Media in March 2014.

    Interview Details

    I sent in an application then was contacted to set up a phone screening about 2 days later. I received the call on time and was interviewed by someone who was clearly reading off a sheet and jotting down everything I said. Luckily, someone on here posted questions he was asked during the interview and lo and behold they were the exact same ones so I had answers prepared for every single thing he threw at me.
    I was then asked to come in and meet with the manager. She was a delight, very warm and personable. She spent a lot of time telling me about the dynamic of the company and the people that were on her team and she was just a lovely person who genuinely seemed to love working there so I was really excited about the position. After asking me a few questions that were more or less the same ones from the screening, she thought I was a good fit and introduced me to 5 account executives and the vice president. They were all friendly as well as asked me a few interview questions. Normally I would feel uncomfortable with this but everyone seemed like a group of friends just hanging out and talking about advertising. Overall this took about 2 hours. I ended up not getting the position but because the manager who interviewed me gave me such great feedback, I was invited to interview for the same position on Christal Radio! However, i didn't like the environment nearly as much and it clearly showed since I didnt get a call back.

    Sales Assistant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New York, NY
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter – interviewed at Katz Media in February 2014.

    Interview Details

    The first interview for me was over the phone with the company recruiter (I believe her name was Jenica). I prepared by writing out an answer to every question other reviewers said they were asked and while I don't remember which ones she ultimately asked, I know I had an answer ready for every single one.

    After that, she set me up with two interviews in different companies (one was in national sales and the in television sales), but they were very similar in structure. In both interviews, I met with 3 different people, so make sure you bring multiple copies of your resume. You definitely want to do some research on the company and what it does, and I specifically remember being asked what I thought the purpose of Katz Media having so many different companies/departments and why that particularly company I was interviewing for had offices in so many cities. I was also asked multiple times by each person I talked to if I had any questions, so be sure to have a lot on hand.

    Anyway, all in all I think I was there about an hour/hour and a half and in both cases it was a really positive experience. Everyone was extremely friendly and genuinely seemed to like their job.

    Interview Questions
    • Honestly, the most difficult questions are about what the company does and your understanding of the job itself. I don't remember being asked anything unexpected.   View Answer
