Intern Interview

Intern

I applied through college or university and interviewed at Los Angeles Times.

Interview Details – I participated on an interview inside a university. Very nice recruiter, but don't know if it was a waste of time for both of us. She didn't seem to actually have interest for my profile, so maybe we just both wasted our times.

Interview Question – There weren't really hard questions. It was more of a "let's meet you" kind of interview.   Answer Question

Very Easy Interview

Digital Marketing Manager Interview

Digital Marketing Manager
Los Angeles, CA

I applied through a staffing agency and the process took 3 days - interviewed at Los Angeles Times.

Interview Details – Went through a third party recruitment company. Applied through email to the listing. Showed up and was given a guest pass. They came down to receive me, and we went up the offices upstairs. Large floor of cubicles and messy offices. It was a VERY laid back interview, lots of jokes, very easy questions for this position. I was a little surprised how easy they were. I probably would not have had trouble if I'd been wearing jeans.

Interview Question – They asked me to review a landing page "What I would do differently" to remodel it for conversions. It was a terrible landing page, so it was an easy answer.   Answer Question
