    Jupiter Position Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Anonymous Interview Candidate
    Application Details

    The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Scripps in January 2014.

    Interview Details

    I received a call from HR asking me about my salary requirements then I was told I would be receiving a link to do a video interview. This is a web based program so you are not even speaking to a person. It was very impersonal in my opinion. I am not relocating. This is a local job. Video interviews should be used for long distance candidates. I think companies have forgotten that interviewing is a 2-way street.

    I went through an entire day of interviewing, with a total of about eight managers. I found everyone cordial, and they asked a lot of questions about my background.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ week - interviewed at Scripps in June 2013.

    Interview Details

    It probably took about a couple to a few months after I put in my application to get a phone call. The interview was pretty through: They asked me all the general questions and explained the work environment at the station. Then they showed me a number of commercials spots and asked me what my opinion was on them regarding how they were filmed, edited, and scripted. Then they tested my Spanish skills to see if I could actually translate a script into Spanish. The interview took about an hour and half.

    I applied through other source. The process took 6 weeks - interviewed at Scripps.

    Interview Details

    Slow but thorough and extremely professional. The company conducts thorough background, verification and drug screening. They are very professional but the hiring process is slow. Expect at least six weeks from the time you are first contacted for a phone screen to actual offer and start date.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 months - interviewed at Scripps.

    Interview Details

    It was a long interview process that included a personality survey, phone interview, in person interview and a presentation. Everyone I met was friendly and I felt comfortable talking to them. However, after spending all that time I got a simple form letter rejection with no reason given. They just stated that it was "a difficult decision". Too much time spent for no feedback. I felt that they were just jerking me around. :(

    Interview Questions
    • Most difficult part is the presentation where you were given limited information and limited time to make recommendations for their client   Answer Question
