    Web Producer Interview

    Interview Details

    Expect a paper application, followed by phone or Skype interviews, and then an in-person interview. The process can be very long: 2 months or longer. The in-person interview is a full-day affair, but you'll get to meet what feels like everyone in the office.

    Applied online. Received an email a couple days later asking if I would be willing to take a drug test, background check, etc. A couple days after that I was asked for a phone interview with someone in HR. Couple days after that interview, I was asked for an in person interview with the hiring manager. Two days later I was asked for a second in person interview with members of the marketing team. Less then a week I was given the offer.

    Anonymous Employee in Seattle, WA
    Application Details

    I interviewed online. 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.
