    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Penton in September 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied on LinkedIn and was contacted within a few days by the managing editor via email to set up a phone interview. After a great phone discussion, HR contacted me to set up a time to go into the NYC office for an in-person interview with some of the team members as well as with HR. I went in a couple of weeks later and the interviews went extremely well. I was contacted a few days later by the managing editor to perform a timed editing test. Then, the following week, I was called with a job offer!

    Data Modeler Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Penton in August 2014.

    Interview Details

    I was brought in for a face-to-face interview with the hiring manager after a 30 min call with him. He was a very smart and thorough manager and I would have enjoyed working for him. Unfortunately, the Chief Data Officer wanted to Skype with me and I was tortured for 30 mins having to answer ridiculous questions that had ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with the position or with my core competencies. I pity the fool who has to interview with the CDO. Avoid this whole company, just look at how bad their Glassdoor reviews are.

    Interview Questions
    • There is no way on earth that you can really quantify the intelligence of the candidate by asking them ridiculous questions such as "describe your favorite scent from childhood."   View Answers (2)
