Interview Question – How would you design Facebook friends feed Answer Question
I applied through an employee referral and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at SAY Media in December 2012.
Interview Details – I was really impressed with the friendliness and flexibility of both the recruiter and the team with which I was interviewing. In addition to lots of positive feedback, they responded promptly throughout scheduling and follow-up. The interview itself was comfortable, relevant, and productive, feeling more like a brainstorming session than an actually job interview. I was not initially the candidate selected, and they sent me a classy and personal note letting me know how difficult the decision was and that they still wanted me to freelance with them. When the candidate who was originally selected was unable to take the position, they quickly let me know that it was still open and, after speaking with my references, made an offer the same day.
Interview Question – Among the assignments within the edit test, I was asked to edit an article so it sounded more true to the website, eliminating not only errors, but cliches and anything else undesirable.

Interview Details – When I was first recruited by SAY I wasn't looking for a new postion but liked what I heard and decided to come in to chat with the Director of Client Services. After a few minutes I knew it was the job for me. Great people, great ideas and high energy.
