    IS Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Myrtle Beach, SC
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Myrtle Beach, SC
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Raycom in August 2011.

    Interview Details

    Applied via Internet posting, got a call the next morning, and interviewed in-person that afternoon! I came from a competitor and I was doing the exact same job so my qualifications were pretty easy to display and explain. They sold Raycom to me on the premise that its employees were appreciated, that they were a very news-focused corporation, and that the Corporate Officers did not hide financial and stability info from their employees. All of this has proven true in my years being with the company now and I am a very happy employee!

    Interview Questions
    • I had to teach them what a router is, what a LAN vs. a WAN is, and teach them the difference between IP address, Subnet, and Gateways.   View Answer

    I applied through an employee referral – interviewed at Raycom in June 2009.

    Interview Details

    Very long and arduous....which would be fine if that meant the hiring managers would then have some trust in the people they hire...but they don't.

    Interview Questions
    • 45 minute on-line sales style survey. Questions are ambigous and could go either way.   Answer Question
    Negotiation Details
    not much to negotiate since they do not tell you what accounts you will be handling.

    Digital Marketing Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4 weeksinterviewed at Raycom.

    Interview Details

    The interview process was pretty standard. I met with the digital manager first to discuss the position before I ever filled out my application and then shortly got a call back after deciding apply. Then, I was interviewed on site by the local sales managers and the general sales manage before finally meeting and interviewing with the general manager of the station. Because its a sales job they asked me all the standard sales type interview questions. Overall it was what I expected.

    Interview Questions
    • They asked me what motivated me and, because I refused to say money, the LSMs never seemed happy with my answer. I'm sure not everyone would be so hard headed though so I doubt all interviewers are like that.   View Answer
