Marketing Copywriter Interview

Anonymous Interview Candidate
Seattle, WA

I applied online and the process took 3 weeks - interviewed at Seattle Times in March 2012.

Interview Details – Initial phone interview with HR. Friendly and professional. Basic interview questions. HR didn't know anything about the job or department.

In-person interview was with the new marketing manager and the marketing manager who was leaving the position. Not as friendly. Very specific questions relating to marketing and branding.

Interview Question – Most of their questions relate to your resume and job history.   Answer Question
