    Intern Interview

    Application Details

    I applied through college or university – 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 Questions
    • There weren't really hard questions. It was more of a "let's meet you" kind of interview.   Answer Question

    Digital Marketing Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Los Angeles, CA
    Application Details

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed 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 Questions
    • 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
